Adele invites ‘Voice of Ireland’ winner to Dublin gig

After wowing Belfast for the first time, Adele has even given last year’s winner of The Voice of Ireland a dig out with a ticket for one of her Dublin shows.

Adele invites ‘Voice of Ireland’ winner to Dublin gig

The superstar singer/songwriter is due to play in Dublin’s 3 Arena tomorrow and Saturday. With tickets like gold dust, Voice of Ireland winner from 2015 Patrick James decided to take to Twitter in a last gasp effort to bag a ticket.

The self-confessed mega fan has seen Adele every time she has played in Dublin and has been a fan of the singer since her days on MySpace.

After failing to secure a ticket he tweeted: “I’ve followed @Adele since MySpace & have seen her live every time she’s played Dublin, but don’t have a ticket for this weekend.”

Much to his surprise, Adele, who has 25m followers and is not a prolific tweeter, came right back with: “I’ll sort you out my love. Can’t have you missing this one x.”

Speaking to RTÉ radio, Mr James said he was still in shock that she not only responded to the tweet, but also came up trumps with a ticket.

“I still can’t fathom it. She has 25m followers so she is obviously receiving hundreds of thousands of tweets a day. How she saw mine I do not know. I’m obviously the luckiest man on the planet,” he said.

It’s not just in Dublin that Adele has been personally reaching out to her fans.

Before her show on Tuesday, she took time out to visit 12-year old Rebecca Gibney from the Short Strand. Rebecca suffers from cerebral palsy and epilepsy.

Her mother Tracy had launched a campaign online to try and get the singer to record a message for her daughter.

On Tuesday, a shocked Tracy received a call from the singer herself to tell her she was on her way over to the house for a visit.

“It’s amazing. I’ll never forget it. And I do know that when Rebecca passes away she did get her dream come true.

“It’s made me feel like I’m the best mummy in the world which I never felt. Adele told me I was the best mummy in the world too,” she told the BBC.
