Adele fans: You may need to sit down for this one.

The 15-time Grammy winner broke bad news on Wednesday night that she may be done touring for good. In a handwritten note featured in the program for her Wembley Stadium show -- the 123rd show of her apparently exhausting 15-month international tour -- Adele thanked fans for "ridiculous love and kindness" and stated she's not sure if she'll "ever tour again."

"Touring is a peculiar thing, it doesn't suit me particularly well," she wrote. "I'm a real homebody and I get so much joy in the small things. Plus I'm dramatic and have a terrible history of touring. Until now that is! I've done 119 shows and these last 4 will take me up to 123, it has been hard out an absolute thrill and pleasure to have done."

"I only ever did this tour for you and to hopefully have an impact on you the way that some of my favorite artist have had on me live," the note continued. "And I wanted my final shows to be in London because I don't know if I'll ever tour again and so I want my last time to be at home. Thank you for coming, for all of your ridiculous love and kindness. I will remember all of this for the rest of my life."

But Adele has been dropping hints at retiring from touring for months.

Back in March, the singer told an Auckland, New Zealand, audience that touring isn't something she's good at. "Applause makes me feel a bit vulnerable," she said.

"I don't know if I will ever tour again. The only reason I've toured is you. I'm not sure if touring is my bag," she added at the time.

Adele also posted the note for all fans to see on Instagram. Read the entire message below.

We have taken this tour across uk+ Ireland, throughout Europe, all over America and I finally got to go to Australia and New Zealand too. Touring is a peculiar thing, it doesn't suit me particularly well. I'm a real homebody and I get so much joy in the small things. Plus I'm dramatic and have a terrible history of touring. Until now that is! I've done 119 shows and these last 4 will take me up to 123, it has been hard out an absolute thrill and pleasure to have done.
