She canceled her 2008 tour to be with an ex-boyfriend.
In 2008, Adele embarked on a tour in support of her debut album 19. An Evening With Adele was slated to snake through the US, but the singer canceled a number of dates in order to spend time with her then-boyfriend.
The following year, she told Nylon magazine that she regretted the decision, saying, "I was drinking far too much and that was kind of the basis of my relationship with this boy. I couldn’t bear to be without him, so I was like, ‘Well, OK, I’ll just cancel my stuff then.'" She added, "We refer to that period as my ELC, my Early Life Crisis. Now I'm sober, I'm like, 'I can't believe I did that.' It seems so ungrateful."
