LOS ANGELES (CBSLA.com) — Adele fans won’t need to wait until August to see her in concert.

The mega-star announced Wednesday that she’ll be performing at a pre-Grammy concert scheduled to be held Friday at The Wiltern.

But only those who are members of Adele’s fan club were able to score tickets.

“It would be such a cathartic experience to be with so many people experiencing that at the same time,” said one Adele fan. “Oh, my gosh, it would be amazing.”

“It shows that she’s a true artist,” said Aubrey Lawrence, who is happy she’s playing at a smaller venue. “Some of the greatest artists that I knew like Jackie Wilson … He was one of the greatest I saw on stage.”

The Wiltern can accommodate about 2,300 people.

Meanwhile, Adele’s “carpool karaoke” with “Late Late Show” host James Corden has set a YouTube record. It is now the most-watched late-night clip ever with nearly 68 million views.

Adele in December announced her first North American tour in five years.

It will include nine shows in California, six of which will be at Staples Center.

The Southern California shows are slated for Aug. 5-13.
