Support the independent voice of Houston and help keep the future of Houston Press free.

Nearly 20,000 fans packed the Toyota Center on Tuesday night for Adele's first of two shows in Houston. The English singer-songwriter swung through the Bayou City as part of her Adele Live 2016 tour.

We caught up with some of Adele's fans outside as they waited in line for the show, and asked them what they like about the singer and what keeps them coming to her shows.

Their answers intrigued us — one fan even said Adele led her to her wife.

Adele plays another show Wednesday evening, before heading to Mexico City.

Keep the Houston Press Free... Since we started the Houston Press, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Houston, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Houston with no paywalls.
