Adele moved to tears during her performance at London’s BST Hyde Park Festival

Singer Adele brought her packed London performance to a halt several times on Friday to help fans in the crowd who needed help.

The multi-Grammy Award winner returned to the stage in front of a live audience for her first concert in five years when she headlined London’s BST Hyde Park Festival.

The star was visibly overcome with emotion before even getting through her first song, telling the 65,000-strong audience, “My God, I’m home again.”

“It’s so strange to be in front of a crowd again. I get so nervous before every show, but I love being here,” the hitmaker added “Someone Like You.”

“It was an unforgettable evening,” concertgoer Alana Sulway, 24, from London, told The Post. “I was lucky enough to get a ticket in the first place so it was surreal to see her [Adele] singing in front of a live audience after all this time.”

After finding out that some eager fans waited more than seven hours in the heat for the singer, the singer sent water to those at the front of the loaded crowd.

During her two-hour set, the singer stopped her show four times to get help from several concertgoers in need of medical attention.

Sulway said the star “put her fans’ safety above all else” during the two-hour set.

The star sang many of her old classics, including "Rolling in the depths," "Somebody like you," and "Heaven fall."

“Every time the crowd waved her down, she stopped singing and got her security to help. It’s not something you see that often,” Sulway told The Post.

The singer wore an elegant black off-the-shoulder halterneck dress for the occasion and revealed to the audience that she was wearing black non-slip socks underneath the glamorous dress.

“I was told it was going to be slippery, so I wore these just in case,” the Rolling In The Deep singer told the audience as she showed them her socks.

The star held back the tears as she addressed the audience, telling them she was “f–king s–ing” after performing her first song.

Adele sang some of her new hits, including “Easy On Me,” “Oh My God” and “I Drink Wine,” dedicating the rest of her 15 songs to her previous albums and most famous hits.

Before taking the stage, Adele was supported by a star-studded all-female lineup, including Gabrielle, Tiana Major9 and country superstar Kacey Musgraves.

The performance was Adele’s first public show since she led two concerts at Wembley Stadium in London in 2017. She postponed her stay in Las Vegas in January.

Adele will perform again on Saturday night to conclude her two-day stint at London’s BST Hyde Park Festival.
