“My God, I’m back at home,” the superstar said during her first public concert in five years.
Adele had an emotional return to the stage during her first public concert in five years.
The music superstar headlined the American Express Presents BST Hyde Park festival for two nights this weekend, performing to a crowd of 65,000 fans in London’s Hyde Park. Per Page Six, the star was over come with emotion during the two-hour set, and held back tears as she addressed the audience, saying during her first song, “My God, I’m back at home.”
For the momentous night, the “Easy on Me” singer turned to Schiaparelli, donning a stunning floor-length black velvet gown. The long-sleeved dress included a cold shoulder-style neckline, with a halter neck giving way to bare shoulders, and was cinched at the waist with a gold belt over a shimmering skirt.
The star accessorized the look with gold jewelry, including a large bow-shaped ring and hoops featuring a circular starburst pattern, adorned with miniature pearls. She paired her signature cat eye with glittery eyeshadow, and wore her hair in an elegant updo.
Per The Guardian, the “Someone Like You” singer sang several new tracks from her album 30, as well as her biggest hits. She chatted with the crowd between songs, on subjects including “Billie Eilish, Stranger Things, sciatica and forgetting lyrics.”
The star also reportedly paused the concert several times to wave security over to members of the crowd needing medical assistance due to the day’s heat.
While the weekends’ performances mark the first time the “Rolling in the Deep” singer performs a public concert after her long hiatus, the star did perform in front of star-studded crowds for two televised shows around the release of 30. For her Adele: One Night Only special, she wore a similar, sculptural Schiaparelli gown, paired with large Saturn earrings and another lovely updo.
