LONDON (AP) — Adele has announced her first tour since 2011, with a string of European dates in support of her record-breaking new album, “25.”

The British singer announced Friday that she will play venues in Britain and Europe starting Feb. 29 in Belfast, Northern Ireland.

Adele has previously said she finds touring lonely. 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.”
