At only 21 years of age, Adele has been doing more than pop stars who are much older than her. Her latest album 21 debuts in the US this month with producers like the legendary Rick Rubin yet still had the songstress writing and composing all the tracks on the album.

Although 21 does lack the London grittiness of her debut (it was recorded in Malibu), there is no denying the sheer power of Adele. Her voice is unmatched. And thankfully for the masses she’s doing a full tour of the US this summer so we can get a glimpse of her live.

Her tour starts fortunately in Washington, DC on May 12th. Tickets go on sale on Friday and are bound to sell out. Check it (East Coast dates highlighted).
