Adele joins the race for the booker’s pick: Hot TV special set to air in the fall

British singer-songwriter Adele has sold more than 250 million albums and scores of awards, and she’s making her U.S. TV debut with a new theatrical concert special set to air on CBS in fall.

Adele’s “An Audience With Adele” is scheduled to debut Sept. 26. The concert special will air three nights after the upcoming release of the Grammy-winning singer’s third studio album, “25,” which was originally slated for a Nov. 3 release but has been pushed back to early next year.

According to a CBS release, the special will feature “select live performances” and “an intimate conversation with Adele,” alongside some of her live band and crew.

“We are incredibly excited to be airing ‘An Audience With Adele’ this fall. Adele is an incredible artist and clearly has a deep appreciation for her fans. We believe her passionate fans will be mesmerized by this show,” CBS Entertainment president Kelly Kahl said in a statement.

Adele last appeared on U.S. television in December 2015 when she performed the closing number of the “50th Anniversary Grammy Salute to the Beatles” at the 55th Grammy Awards, singing her hit “When We Were Young.”

Adele also performed at the 2016 Grammys, and joined James Corden to do a spoof of the show called “Carpool Karaoke.”

Producers of the concert special say fans can expect more full-length performances and some tidbits about her life.
