WATCH: Adele Flips Out When a Bat Interrupts Her Concert
Recently, while performing at Mexico City’s Palacio de los Deportes to a crowd of 25,000 people, Adele received quite a shock when a bat flew into the venue mid-performance, interrupting her set. Though the “Hello” singer is normally a pro at handling technical difficulties, seeing a wild animal at her show incited a rather different — albeit still endearingly hilarious — reaction from her.

“There’s a bat there and it landed by your head!” she told the crowd after running around in circles onstage. “It landed right by your head! Oh my god, it’s a fucking bat. Welcome to Mexico. It’s true, I’m happy to be here, but a fucking bat, Jesus Christ!”
After laughing it off, Adele finished her show without a hitch. (Hey, maybe the bat just wanted to catch her sing “Rolling in the Deep”.)
“I am so grateful that I got given this opportunity — I’m so glad I finally made it to Mexico,” she said to the audience. “Thank you so much for coming to my show. I had a great time. I hope you’ve enjoyed yourselves. Thank you for being so kind to us while we’ve been here.”
