The special, which comes two months ahead of the beginning of the multi-Grammy winner’s North American Tour, is an extended rebroadcast of her original NBC telecast that aired in December, but with five new songs not seen in the original showing. Adele recorded Live in New York City on November 17, 2015 in front of a packed house at Radio City Music Hall.
In all, 13 songs will be included for the May 6 special, including, for the first time, “Water Under the Bridge,” “One and Only,” “Hometown Glory,” “Chasing Pavements” and “Daydreamer.”
The December 14, 2015 telecast of Adele Live in New York City averaged a 3.7 rating in adults 18-49 and 13.8 million viewers overall in Nielsen Live+7, making it the highest-rated primetime music special on the broadcast networks in 18-49 in 11 years and NBC’s most-watched concert special in 13 years.
