Multiple Grammy Award winner Adele was forced to stop a concert in Sydney after a fan had a heart attack during live performance and emergency services were called.
A 47 year old woman was taken to hospital in a serious condition during her performance on Friday, March 10, 2017.
The over 95,000 fans who had made their way to the ANZ stadium last night to see the British singer perform had to clear a path to allow paramedics to get to the ill woman.
The woman was taken to Westmead Hospital shortly after in a serious condition, it was gathered.
Adele, while stopping her performance midway, told her teeming fans that she didn’t want to shock the sick woman with fireworks that were planned.
She also joked that she had ruined the surprise for the rest of the audience by telling them about the pyrotechnics.
“Sorry. Someone got hurt. I ruined the surprise for you didn’t I?” Adele told the crowd.
“Sorry, there was so much going on it frightened me. Pretend I didn’t say anything. Let’s start again.”
She continued the show after a brief pause.
Initially it was thought the woman had suffered some kind of spinal injury, because paramedics had brought a stretcher into the arena with them.
This is even as an eyewitness also added that nobody had paid the situation any attention until Adele stopped the show shortly before launching into Rolling In The Deep.
