    Befitting her record-breaking album, Adele has just announced a North American tour that will do its best to give North Americans a chance to see her perform it live. Especially if those North Americans live in New York or Los Angeles.

    After wrapping up an already-announced European jaunt, the singer's first North American tour in five years, in support of 25, will begin on July 5 in St. Paul, Minnesota, and wrap up on November 15 in Mexico City, which is now a North American city because Adele says so.

    But the real stunner here is the six consecutive shows that Adele is performing at the Staples Center in Los Angeles in August, and the six shows she's playing at New York City's Madison Square Garden in September. Even Toronto is getting four consecutive dates in October, which is traditionally Drake month. This is a tad concerning, since much of Adele's 2011 tour was canceled thanks to bouts with laryngitis, a chest infection, and a vocal cord hemorrhage. But keep in mind, that was before Adele developed the power to bend the universe to her will. 

    Tickets for the tour go on sale on December 17 (that's this Thursday!), and you can see the complete dates below.
