Adele announces first tour in five years for ‘25’.

Not only has her superb “25” album bypassed previous sales records set by Britney Spears and ‘N Sync – and in a completely different era of music-buying (emphasis on buying) – but it’s set a new record. Pandora Media Inc presented its listeners with British singer Adele’s best-selling album “25″, days after streaming companies said the album would not be available for streaming at release.

Adele has previously spoken of how she suffers from stage fright, while some media reports had suggested she would not tour her latest album as she does not like leaving her three-year-old son Angelo. As of Thursday, with a full week of sales tracking yet to be completed, “25” has already sold more than 3 million copies according to new music analytics company Buzz Angle Music (chart stalwart Nielsen Soundscan is reporting those same numbers). ‘N Sync’s record of 2.42 million in one-week sales (for “No Strings Attached) has held since March 2000, and Spears’ single-week sales record for a female artist of 1.32 million (for “Oops…I Did it Again”) was achieved in May 2000. But in a video on Facebook, the 27-year-old said she was “relieved to finally tell you I am of course coming on tour and I can’t wait to see all of you there.” The album sold a record 2.4 million copies in its first four days in the US, according to Nielsen Music. The U.S. online radio service said all songs from Adele’s album, which broke records in first-week sales, are now available on its radio service, sending Pandora shares up on Wednesday. “Since “Hello” was added to Pandora’s platform last month, her total station adds are up 1,200 percent,” the company told Reuters in an email. In addition to the jaw-dropping sales of “25,” renewed interest in the British pop-soul singer has resulted in the re-appearance of her “21” and “19” albums, which re-entered the charts and sold 28,000 and 17,000 copies this week, respectively.

By crossing the 3 million mark, Adele’s third studio album surpassed *NSYNC’s “No Strings Attached,” which sold 2.42 million copies during its first week of release in 2000. In other Adele news sure to send fans into a frenzy, she confirmed on Thursday that she will indeed tour in 2016 and announced a set of sporadic dates in the U.K. and Europe between the end of February and June.
