Hyde Park

Emotion and simplicity are enough at comeback Hyde Park gig

The pop superstar's composure momentarily cracked as she took in the huge audience in London's Hyde Park during the opening lines of her first song, Hello.

She quickly resumed singing and soon hit her stride, going on to play a crowd-pleasing two-hour set for the 65,000 fans in her home city.

"It's so strange to be in front of a crowd again," she told them.
