As you may be aware, dear audience member, Nannerl was here this afternoon, just before she set off on her latest VIP reporting duties.

"Hello", "Rumour has it" #Adele "Set Fire to the Rain" so no "Skyfall"s. "All I Ask" is take a jacket so you don't get a "Cold Shoulder". 😉— BOM South Australia (@BOM_SA) March 13, 2017
Walked around outside of @TheAdelaideOval earlier when @Adele was doing a sound check. Skyfall sounded great. Enjoy all at #AdeleAdelaide— Andrew Coulson (@andrewecoulson) March 13, 2017

JUST IN: 'Rumour Has It' power has gone out on stage at the #Adele concert in Adelaide.— Han Nguyen (@HanNguyenNews) March 13, 2017
The power has just gone out at the @Adele concert in Adelaide... Where's @elonmusk when you need him?#AdeleAdelaide— Jez C (@jeremycoombes) March 13, 2017
Apparently the power has gone out on stage at the Adele concert and she can't perform. This is just peak Adelaide #ThisIsSA— Caleb Bond (@TheCalebBond) March 13, 2017
The power's gone out on #Adele's stage at Adelaide Oval. She's had to stop singing and tell jokes. Claaaaaassic Adelaide.— Madeleine Dunne (@MadeleineDunne) March 13, 2017
Can hear Adele and I'm 10km from the oval #AdeleAdelaide WOW!— Deborah Usher (@DeborahU) March 13, 2017

Nannerl earlier sent a text message to one of the style guides in the really green green room to say the box in which she was sitting for the outdoor singspiel was not at all as she expected it to be.
There was a potentially dangerous woman in a veil nearby. Nannerl thought the person might have been dressed as Donna Elvira.
Might be my fave pic of @Adele . Wearing a veil, shooting a cannon. It's like something from a Tarantino movie. #AdeleAdelaide pic.twitter.com/nI9ocZcmJu— Cate Pearce (@CateP36) March 13, 2017
My goodness, @Adele what a talent. Amazing voice, top banter. A brilliant show. #adelaide pic.twitter.com/p4GebtGkoe— Lauren Waldhuter (@laurenwaldhuter) March 13, 2017
Someone like you. Standing ovation. @MissTiBiscuit heureuse ☺The end. #greatshow #adeleaide #AdeleAdelaide #adelelive2017— Big Maximax (@BigMaximax) March 13, 2017
Nannerl has been wondering why the concert had deafening noise for much of the time. Do the musicians want very short careers?
The non-soprano spent half of the concert talking to the audience. If her reputation as a powerful singer is factual, where is the evidence? And why did she only sing whilst holding a baby's rattle?
Do you think that we should now call ourselves 'Adele-aide'? pic.twitter.com/pn2nVxSiih— Martin Haese (@MartinHaese) March 13, 2017
Of course, Nannerl is a quality reporter.
.@SkyNewsAust @chriskkenny @Adele The power cord came out whilst the stage was revolving, but sure run your story instead https://t.co/38UiLNufJP— Matthew (@matt4w) March 13, 2017
Nannerl's follow-up review of the concert is likely to be like no other.
