Adele knows how to write a gut wrenching global hit. The star’s lyrics have the ability to pull on the heartstrings and her powerful voice can stir emotions we didn’t know existed. There’s no doubt why Candlelight chose to celebrate the iconic singer-songwriter this past season. A string quartet performed the superstar’s biggest hits while everything in sight bathed in the soft glow of candlelight.
While there are no more tributes to Adele planned for the coming months, there are plenty of other artists being honored at some of the city’s greatest venues that promise to leave everyone enchanted.
Candlelight Tribute to Adele
Known for her relatable lyrics and iconic heartbreak anthems, Adele is one of the most popular artists of the 21st century. Her songs have become staples for any painful breakup and her powerhouse vocals have moved millions of fans around the world. After selling over 120 million records worldwide over the last 15 years, she has quickly become one of the most successful musicians of all time.
This August, Adele’s biggest songs that have swooned millions around the world will be sounding inside the remarkable Granada Theater. Built in 1929, this stunning venue screened movies during the silent era of film and exhibits a gorgeous Churrigueresque architectural style of the 17th century. Performed on strings, the melodies from songs such as “Someone Like You”, “Rolling in the Deep”, Easy On Me” and “Oh My God” will flood through this historic venue while a sea of candles illuminates everything around you.
After having enormous success around the world—in cities like London, Manchester, Madrid, Barcelona, and Paris—Candlelight brings its unique experience to Minneapolis to pay tribute to one of the most popular and influential artists in the world. The Candlelight series has been met by countless 5-star reviews, and guests have called it “a creative, enchanting, and new concert experience.”
The concert takes place over the course of 65 minutes and doors open 30 minutes prior to the concert start time. Sit back, relax and let the moving melodies of classical music wash over you inside the magnificent Granada Theater while you hear spellbinding renditions of Adele’s most adored tunes.
