Adele was in tears while performing at BST Hyde Park in London

Singer Adele halted her packed London concert on Friday several times to help fans in the crowd in need of help.

The multiple Grammy winner returned to the stage in front of a live audience at her first concert in five years, as she topped London’s BST Hyde Park Festival.

The star was visibly overcome with emotion before hitting her first single, telling the 65,000 audience, “Oh my God, I’m home.”

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

β€œIt was an unforgettable night,” attendee Alana Sully, 24, who hails from London, told The Post. β€œI was lucky enough to get a ticket in the first place, so it was unrealistic to see [Adele] Singing in front of a live audience after all this time.”

After discovering that some ardent fans had waited for the singer for more than seven hours in the heat, the singer sent water to those at the front of the loaded audience.

Throughout her two-hour set, the singer paused her show four times to get help for several concert-goers left in need of medical attention.

Solway said the star “puts her fans’ safety before anything else” during the two-hour set.

The star sang many of her old classics "rolling in the deep," "someone like You," And the "sky fall."

Anytime the crowd waved her down, she stopped singing and asked her security for help. It’s not something you tend to see often, Solway told The Post.

The singer wore an elegant black dress with an off-the-shoulder neckline for the occasion, revealing to the audience that she was wearing black non-slip stockings under the glamorous dress.

The star held back tears as she addressed the audience and told them she was “f-king s-ing herself” after performing her first song.

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

Before taking to the stage, Adele was supported by a host of star-studded women, including Gabrielle, Tiana Major 9, and country star Kacey Musgraves.
