Adele set fire to the rain at her world tour opening show in Belfast, Northern Ireland, on Monday night, bringing with her special effects that included an indoor downpour over her head.

The first of two back-to-back shows at the SSE Arena received praise from those in attendance, as the superstar "Hello" singer brought with her a tasteful and impressive stage show.

Appearing in a custom Burberry gown, at one point she performed "Set Fire to the Rain" with what looked like actual rain falling on her head.

Elsewhere in the set, she showed off childhood photos, a floating cube projecting her image onto curtain-like fabric and more.
