Adele Gets Emotional As She Performs In First UK Concert Since 2017

Adele's comeback gig has been long awaited and it was, quite understandably, a very emotional moment for the beloved British singer.

Her gig yesterday (1 July) was the first concert for fans in the UK since 2017, and feelings were running high as the singer took to the stage at London's Hyde Park.

Whilst the star performed to 65,000 fans in her home city, the 'Hello' singer told fans she was 'so happy' to be performing again.

She said: "Hello, I'm so happy to be here. Guys, I'm back at home, also where I know the amount of times I have been up there drunk off of my face, singing along to other artists at these shows," before later adding: "It's so strange to be in front of a crowd again."

The 34-year-old powered through numbers such as 'Easy On Me', 'Rumour Has It', 'To Make You Feel My Love' and 'Rolling In The Deep' to the packed out concert.

She was due to perform a residency at Las Vegas in January, but pushed it back due to 'not being ready', disappointing ticket holders just 24 hours before the show was due to start.

But whilst on stage at Hyde Park, she told the crowd that she would announce new rearranged US dates soon and how she knew lots of people felt 'let down'.

Adele told fans: "I know that a lot of things have happened with this album and I'm sure a lot of you feel that you've been let down and stuff, which is mortifying really and upsetting to me.

"But I take my singing very seriously and the last thing I would ever want to do is let people down but I had to do that, it just wasn't right."

Fans at the show were emotional, with some taking to social media to share touching moments:

Some fans described the show as 'on another level' after waiting five years to see the singer perform again in the UK.

Whilst the singer has performed live since 2017, she hasn't performed in an open public concert since then.

Her televised performance, An Audience with Adele, which aired on ITV last year, was viewed by 5.4 million viewers at home and was attended by celebrities including Emma Watson, Emma Thompson and comedian Alan Carr.

She also sang at the Brit Awards in February this year in London.
