Adele Pauses Las Vegas Concert to Honor Late Matthew Perry

Adele was one of the many fans who took a moment to remember the late Friends icon Matthew Perry last night after news of his death passing made headlines. 

The singer was performing a concert for her Las Vegas residency on Sat. Oct 28. When she learned of Perry’s death, she paused her set to say some words for the actor by saying Chandler Bing was “probably the best comedic character of all time.”

“It is always so shocking, especially someone that made you laugh and who brought so much joy to your life that you don’t know. This is what I find so strange,” she continued. “I never met him in my life. There is something, you feel so sad about it especially because you don’t necessarily know what was going on.”

Adele also praised Matthew Perry for being candid about his struggles with addiction and recovery. 

“I think is incredibly, incredibly brave,” she added. 

Following her words, Adele dedicated her song When We Were Young to Perry.

Matthew Perry was found dead in his hot tub at his home in Los Angeles on Saturday, and it is believed he drowned. He was 54. According to TMZ, sources claim police were called about a possible cardiac arrest. Authorities do not suspect foul play at this time. 

The publication later added that the actor passed after a day of strenuous activity. Perry had been playing pickleball that morning and returned home after. He then sent his personal assistant out on an errand. When they returned about two hours later, they found Perry unresponsive and called 911.
