Adele has announced she will play two huge shows in London’s Hyde Park next summer, marking her first UK dates in five years.

The music icon will play two BST Hyde Park dates on July 1 & 2 next year, with the announcement coming weeks ahead of the arrival of ’30’, her hugely anticipated fourth album on November 19.

Fans can sign up at Adele’s official website to access her presale, which begins at 10am on Thursday 28 October. American Express Cardmembers can also access presale tickets from 10am, Friday 29 October. Tickets go on general sale from 10am, Saturday 30 October. 

The dates mark the singer’s first confirmed shows in the UK since her 2017 dates at London’s Wembley Stadium, which were ultimately cut short when she damaged her vocal chords.

Last week saw her comeback single, ‘Easy On Me’, reach the number one spot on the UK Official Singles Chart.

The track is Adele’s first release since her 2016 single ‘Water Under the Bridge’, taken from her 2015 album, ’25’. 

It is the lead single from Adele’s highly anticipated upcoming album, ‘30’, which the singer has said she hopes will help her nine-year-old son understand her divorce from ex-husband Simon Konecki.

‘Easy On Me’ sold a huge 217,300 units in its first week, which is the highest number of sales in an opening week since Ed Sheeran’s 2017 single ‘Shape Of You’.

The single has also broken streaming records, with 24 million streams in the UK this week. The track has now overtaken Ariana Grande’s record of 16.9 million streams in January 2019 with her song, ‘7 Rings’.

Adele’s latest single has also seen the highest number of digital download sales in a week this year, with 23,500.

Her previous album, ‘25’, continues to climb the Official Albums Chart, reaching number three this week, and her albums ‘21’ and ‘19’ are now at number six and number 15 respectively.
