Adele gives a fan an ear-full at her concert in Verona Italy. Apparently the lady in the audience was videoing her concert. “Yeah, I want to tell that lady as well, can you stop filming me with a video camera because I’m really here in real life.”
“You can enjoy it in real life, rather than through your camera. Can you take your tripod down? This isn’t a DVD, this is a real show.
“I’d really like you to enjoy my show because there’s lots of people outside that couldn’t come in.”
It is Wednesday and as always we have the Canada Report from Michael.
Congratulations go out this morning to Michael and Ruth who are getting married on Friday!
