I Let Adele Borrow My Pride Flag To Wear On Stage, So She Gave Me VIP Seats

An Adele super fan scored VIP seats at her concert in Hyde Park, London, on Saturday – because he let her borrow his Pride flag and take it on stage.

Dean Barber, 32, took his $9 Pride flag to Adele’s concert in Hyde Park this weekend, and was asked if Adele could borrow the flag as part of her performance.

In return for the favor, Adele invited Barber and his friend to enjoy the concert from the comfort of the VIP area.

Barber has hailed her a “true LGBT ally” for her support of the community at the sold-out venue with a capacity of 65,000.

“When we were asked if Adele could borrow a flag for the stage, we couldn’t believe it,” said Barber.

“We gave her the spare and were escorted to VIP – I kept thinking ‘is this real?’ I couldn’t believe it.

“After a couple of songs, she called to ask for Jack and Dean – my friend and I – and pulled us right to the front.

“When she called us over, she said, ‘I needed the flag, you’ll find out why later’ – and later on she came out wearing the flag.

“It was just so mind-blowing and crazy; I’m still processing it because you don’t ever expect that to happen.

“To have someone on that level be so outwardly an ally is huge.”

Barber explained that moments after arriving to the concert, he and his friend Jack were whisked aside by someone from Adele’s team, asking to borrow one of their flags for Adele to use during her performance.

During the performance, she had the rainbow flag draped over her shoulders before later waving it around in support of the LGBTQ community.

“It was a huge moment to have an artist using their platform like this to support the queer community,” Barber added.

“When it’s been a hard time for the community in so many places, it’s incredible for someone on that level to show support.

“When it went viral on social media, I expected some homophobia but everyone has just been so lovely.

“I guess that’s just the power of Adele – she is a true ally.”
