Hero! Jimmy Fallon saved the day for two stranded Adele fans in NY


Two Adele fans thought their dream of seeing the singer perform live was dead and gone… until a certain TV host came to the rescue.

Jimmy Fallon was in the right place at the right time for Kristen Smith and Mary Kate Romano, who found themselves locked out of Adele's sold-out NYC concert after they were duped with fake tickets.

The pair, who hail from Connecticut – around a two hour drive from Manhattan – had headed into the city at the last minute earlier this week after Mary Kate's father found them a pair of tickets.

After arriving at the Radio City Music Hall though, they discovered the tickets were in fact fakes, and even an hour of pleading with the bouncers wasn't enough to get them inside.

Heading home despondent, Kristen described to Us Weekly how they came upon chat show host Jimmy just a few feet from the venue.

"We were both so disappointed and sad that we made the trip into NYC and were so close, but wouldn't actually get to see Adele.

"There was a line of cars that all had black-tinted windows… All of a sudden, a door opened next to us and out stepped Jimmy Fallon."

After stopping to get a picture with the TV personality – who was there to MC at the concert – the girls mentioned what had happened, but told Jimmy that meeting him had brightened up their evening.

"We then turned around and a guy standing in the doorway — we’re not sure if he worked with Jimmy or if he worked for Radio City Music Hall — said, ‘I can make your night even better,’ and he pulled out an envelope and handed me two tickets to get into the show," Kristen recalled.

"It was so unexpected. Without Jimmy Fallon leaving at that time, we never would have ended up getting in."

In case you were wondering, Kristen added that the concert was "unbelievable."

Now, if Jimmy Fallon (and Adele) could just come to Dublin and do the same for us…
