Adele reveals extreme measure she takes to stop herself getting ill on tour

Adele is taking extra precautions to ensure she doesn't get sick on her ongoing tour. The 28-year-old singer, who was forced to cancel a concert in Arizona last month after catching a cold, has revealed she now has a medic come in and asses her team every week to make sure they don't pass on any bugs.

"I had to cancel a show on the last leg of my tour in Phoenix, Arizona and I've never actually been so devastated in my life," Adele told her audience in Michigan on Wednesday, according to the Sun.

"We have a doctor that comes in once a week and everyone gets a badge so I know I can go up and talk to them. So everyone gets a badge, and it they've got a badge it means I know I can go up to them, and be like, 'Hi, how are you?', and touch them. If they don't have a badge, they are quarantined."

Adele was clearly devastated when she had to cancel last month's show. In an Instagram video, she told her fans: "I'm really, really sorry. I've had a cold for a couple of days, and I've been pushing through it, and I did my show last night, and I love it but I pushed too hard. And my cold has gotten the better of me."

She continued: "As you can hear, even if I did the show, it wouldn't be very good. I'm really, really, really sorry to let anyone down.

"I've enjoyed my tour so much and cancelling shows is not something I want to do. I've pushed through a lot of things but I've been trying to sing all morning and warming up, and nothing is really happening.

"I'm so sorry to let you down. I know lots of people would be flying in, from all over, it's the last thing I want to do but I have to look after myself because I’ve got so many more shows to do.

"I will reschedule this show I promise you and I will come back and I will smash it for you. I'm really, really sorry, have a wonderful evening without me," she said, before blowing a kiss to the camera.
