After a phenomenal year of sold-out performances, brand-new music and travelling the world – the immaculate concert SOMEONE LIKE YOU – THE ADELE SONGBOOK is coming to The Riverfront in Newport in March.

Fresh from a spectacular spring tour, Someone Like You – The Adele Songbook is the stunning live performance celebrating the music of one of our generations’ finest singer-songwriters.

Featuring outstanding vocals by X Factor finalist KATIE MARKHAM and a super talented live-band– Someone Like You recreates the four record-breaking albums ‘19’, ‘21’, ‘25’ and the current album ‘30’ – including the new songs such as ‘Easy On Me’, ‘Oh My God’ and ‘I Drink Wine’.

You’ll see what we mean in the extended trailer for the show below…..


Katie has been singing and dancing since she was six years old, having trained at Joyce Mason School of Dance and Kimberley School of Dance in Scunthorpe. Singing remained in the background for a while due to her passion for dance but when Katie started winning singing talent contests at aged 15, she started to focus on her unique and stunning voice.

Katie continued to appear in various theatre and musical productions as well as festivals up and down the country. In 2013, she was approached to enter X Factor and got to the last 7 finalists, narrowly missing out on the judges’ houses stage. Katie emerged from the X Factor experience an entirely different person; as an artist with full confidence in her vocal ability. Not long afterwards, her agent entered her for a showcase as Adele and so the journey began.

In 2015, Katie was approached by producers of Adele Live at the BBC to appear on the show as part of an Adele tribute feature. Adele selected all the tributes herself and loved Katie’s audition video. She was selected as one of eight Adele performers to be in the BBC show and performed alongside her idol as part of the piece. 

The Real Adele (in disguise) Centre – Can you spot Katie?

And so the Someone Like You show was born. Katie is absolutely thrilled to be leading the national theatre production, now it it’s sixth phenomenal year; a show which gives her the chance to portray Adele in exactly the way she has always dreamed. 

Katie told us…..

“It has been a whirlwind experience, from our very first performance to selling-out venues six years’ later – but I wouldn’t change it for the world.

It’s a privilege to perform Adele’s songs every week, especially the brand-new content. It’s hard to imagine a more personal album – rebuilding yourself from scratch after a painful breakup and trying to find love again – it’s so upfront and honest!”

This is the perfect show for any fan of Adele, especially as heading off to Vegas to see her at her residency is way out of our budgets. We can now enjoy a fantastic evening of Adele favourites, including the smash-hits ‘Rolling In The Deep’, ‘Make You Feel My Love’, ‘Someone Like You’ and the multi-million seller ‘Skyfall,’ right here on our doorstep.

The world class show Someone Like You has even had phenomenal success in countries across the world from Ireland to Canada and has played at some of the most prestigious venues across the UK.

Katie said……

“Not many people can say the theatre is their office. There is a real beauty to Adele’s music and Someone Like You is the perfect treat for any Adele fan!”

SOMEONE LIKE YOU – THE ADELE SONGBOOK gets to The Riverfront Theatre and Arts Centre on Friday 24th March at 7:30pm. Tickets are £27 each. To get yours and more details, go HERE
