During her tour, Adele opened up about the writing process behind her hit song, Someone Like You. In a video obtained by The Sun, she told the crowd: "I could see in their eyes as they were listening to it on their headphones that it reminded them of something or someone and that’s what I wanted to remember. How it was I felt at the beginning of the relationship that inspired that record." She added: "As bad as a break up can be, as bitter and horrible and messy as it can be, that feeling when you first fall for someone is the best feeling on earth, and I am addicted to that feeling. Obviously I can't go through with those feelings because I'm married now. I've found my next person. But that feeling, when you first meet someone and everything about you just feels alive for the first time. I wanted to go back to that."
