An Evening with Adele is the first concert tour by the British singer-songwriter Adele, in support of her debut album, 19. The tour was unusual in that it included very few dates in the United Kingdom, Adele's home and the territory where 19 was most successful (the only UK dates on the tour were music festival appearances). Instead, the tour focused on North America with the tour beginning and ending in the United States. Adele and the tour gained some notoriety when she cancelled tour dates in 2008 in order to spend time with her boyfriend, an incident she later expressed regret over. The last performance on the tour took place at the historic Hollywood Bowl. Etta James was supposed to appear at the performance but cancelled at the last-minute due to illness and was replaced by Chaka Khan. An official tour book containing exclusive pictures and behind-the-scene information of the tour is available for purchase on Adele's official site.
Adele's 31 January show in Los Angeles was supposed to take place at the Avalon Ballroom but sold out quickly and had to upgraded to the Wiltern Theatre. Adele's performance at the iTunes Festival was released as an EP under the title iTunes Live from SoHo.

- She also wrote "Take It All" for 21 and performed it during her performance at the Hollywood Bowl.
- At various shows she introduced her band with an instrumental interlude that was a tribute to Michael Jackson's "Thriller," although she sang part of the verse before dancing to the rest of the song, much to the crowd's delight.
