Adele resumes North American tour in Canada

Written by . Published: August 10 2011

Adele dedicated songs to her native London and tragic pal Amy Winehouse as she resumed her North American tour in Canada on Tuesday (09Aug11).

The soul star's sold-out concert at the Orpheum Theatre in Vancouver came three months after she called off her trek to recover from a bout of laryngitis.

The singer opened the show by dedicating her track Hometown Glory to her birthplace, Tottenham, which was besieged by thugs following the fatal shooting of a local man on Thursday (04Aug11).

She told the crowd, "I have to sing this one for my hometown. London is under attack by a bunch of idiots."

Adele also paid tribute to Winehouse, who died last month (Jul11), with a heartfelt cover of Bob Dylan's Make You Feel My Love, admitting, "She was a big part of my life in so many ways."
