What a great story! Way back in 2008 Programming Director of Joe’s Pub, Shanta Thake, booked Adele for her U.S. debut gig after a recommendation from a friend and charged the patrons $12 to come and hear her sing.
The rest is history. She made a huge impression, see the video of her singing at Joe’s Pub in 2008 during that first gig.
This weekend, with Adele being back in NYC and all, she is also honoring her connection to this small music venue that was prepared to book her before she became a mega star. Adele At Joe’s Pub
All the money in the world won’t get you one of the 202 tickets. Every person who will be there and hear her will be smug in the knowledge that 1,000′s would like to take their place.
What a great lady, no Diva nonsense going on with her. These people took a chance on her and she’s saying thank you in the classiest way possible. Adele you can come back to sweet old NYC any time you like honey, we think you’re great.
