Adele, whose sophomore album, “21,” comes out Feb. 22, embarks on her first full tour U.S. tour in two years on May 12. The  six-week outing starts at Washington, D.C.’s 9:30 club and concludes June 20 at Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium. The closing date is especially fitting given Adele’s confessed new love of country music. Most country artists consider the Ryman sacred ground.

A pre-sale starts Feb. 9 with tickets on sales to the general public starting Feb. 11.

“21,” which came out in much of the rest of the world two weeks ago, soared to No. 1  in 14 countries. First single, “Rolling in the Deep,” has reached No. 2 on Billboard Triple-A chart.
