Adele halts London Hyde Park concert and calls for security over concern for audience member

Adele’s concert at London’s Hyde Park was brought to a halt on Friday evening (July 1) over concerns for a member of the 65,000-strong crowd. The 34-year-old spotted something wrong midway through performing James Bond track Skyfall.

It prompted her to call for security to step in. She stopped performing and asked members of the audience to move out of the way.

The Mirror reports that Adele was seen waving her arms in the air to alert officers of the ensuing chaos in front of her. “Stop, stop, stop. Security!?” Adele shouts out as her band put down their instruments.

Adele then checked on the audience member from the stage, bellowing over her microphone: “Do you need security’s help? “They’re coming,” she assured.

Guiding the team of medics to the guest, Adele cried out: “Right in the middle there, can you see where they are all waving?” as members of the 65,000 strong crowd began to part. It was an emotional return to the stage for Adele who was left moved to tears at various points throughout her set.

The headline performance signalled Adele’s first public performance since her cancelled Las Vegas residency. After releasing her fourth album 30 to huge acclaim last November, Adele announced a lucrative Sin City residency at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace Hotel.

However, just hours before the shows were due to start, Adele announced in a tearful video she would have to postpone – to the disappointment of travelling fans. The award winning singer apologised to her fans saying the residency had been “absolutely destroyed” by delivery delays and coronavirus.

Adele said her production team had tried “absolutely everything” to pull the show together in time but that it had been “impossible”.

On Friday, Adele treated the crowd, which included A listers such as Tom Cruise, to a selection of hits from her collection as well as some tracks from her latest album 30. Throughout the night, Adele was seen sipping on a hot drink to soothe her throat after struggling with vocal issues in the past. She was forced to cancel her 02 Arena gigs in 2017 after losing her voice.

Earlier this year, Adele faced another setback when she was forced to cancel her Las Vegas residency at the 11th hour. Her headline set at BST Hyde Park festival was Adele’s first public appearance in the UK in five years.
