While talking to the crowd as she fired T-shirts into the crowd using a handheld cannon, she said: ‘I’ve got two more, I’ve just got to get over to the other side of the stage.
‘I have to waddle these days because I have really bad sciatica,’ Adele added in the video obtained by the Daily Star.
Adele’s residency has caused a stir after VIP tickets were priced at a jaw-dropping £4million, the same price as a luxury Formula 1 package.

Adele has previously discussed being in pain for ‘half her life’, prior to losing weight and how her body overhaul has helped her cope with her problems.
Speaking to The Face magazine in November 2021, Adele spoke candidly about how life has changed since she famously shed 100lbs to help combat anxiety.
She revealed she first slipped a disc at 15 and when she had a C-section with her son Angelo, nine, her problems increased – so since losing weight she can ‘run around with him a little bit more’ and branded her health a ‘metaphor for surviving’.
Adele’s image has been a hot topic since she returned to the spotlight after her 2019 divorce and she has spoken about how physical health has helped her anxiety.

Speaking about the physical pain she was in prior to her weight loss, she said: ‘I’m definitely really happy now… I’m more agile because I can now move more, because of my back. I got my core strong…
‘I slipped my first disc when I was 15 from sneezing. I was in bed and I sneezed and my fifth one flew out. In January, I slipped my sixth one, my L6. And then where I had a C‑section, my core was useless.
‘I’ve been in pain with my back for, like, half of my life, really. It flares up, normally due to stress or from a stupid bit of posture..
‘But where I got my tummy strong, down at the bottom, which I never had before, my back don’t play up as much. It means I can do more, I can run around with my kid a little bit more.’
On how her health has improved and changed, she went on: ‘But I like feeling strong, I really do. I love it. I was lifting weights this morning, and I’ve gone up from what I was doing a couple of weeks ago…

‘When I feel that I have the weight of the world – of my world at least – on my shoulders, I can handle it a bit more because I’ve gone up 10 pounds with my weights. It really was just a metaphor for surviving.’
Adele’s split from Angelo’s father Simon Konecki, who she wed in 2011, came to light on Good Friday 2019 and it was then she began battling her woes.
She has since revealed that she changed her life – including quitting drinking and taking up exercise to abate her mental health.
After losing weight, which she insists was not about image but about her mental situation, she now concedes that she feels stronger as a person.
Adele did rigorous weight-lifting and circuit-training sessions every day – twice a day if her anxiety is running high – for four years and counting.
