Live Nation has yet to publish top box office counts across Adele's Live 2017 jaunt Down Under, which now enters the final straight with three shows at Mt Smart Stadium in Auckland, New Zealand (this Thursday, Saturday and Sunday).

Adele usually performs her concerts with fans at the end of her stage (likely to keep cool in the heat of stage lights), but had a little fun when one blew her hair in an especially Beyoncé fashion.

During her recent concert in Adelaide, Adele admitted she was anxious fans knew her secret. "If I see one more person be told to sit down, I swear to God".

When Adele selected Nicholson-Doyle as one of the lucky fans join her on stage, he made a decision to bite the bullet and bring his boyfriend Chris with him.

He then unexpectedly proposed to his boyfriend Chris.

The overall list boasts 233 more billionaires than in 2016, the biggest increase since Forbes started keeping track 31 years ago. Jim Davis, the CEO of the Boston-based New Balance, finished in a tie for 315th place with a net worth of $7.1 billion.

Fans loved the sweet moment, with one tweeting: "Adele's Melbourne show is already off to a kick-arse start with a super sweet same-sex marriage proposal". "I'm not really a touring artist", she said.

Adele hugged the couple, saying, "I had no idea that was going to happen".

Chris said yes to a chorus of cheers from the crowd.

However, "Neighbours" legend Alan Fletcher revealed she was simply on set ahead of an episode airing in the United Kingdom on Monday (20.03.17), which happens to be set in London, England.

"That wasn't planed, I had no idea", Adele said after the show. Her two Melbourne shows had the highest attendance of any event at Etihad Stadium since it opened in 2000.
