Adele Sets 10 Opening Acts for Hyde Park Dates, All Female, Including Kacey Musgraves


Adele has her opening acts for her Hyde Park dates.

There are 10 of them, all female, most you’ve never heard of. For Americans the biggest name is Kacey Musgraves.

The others are obscure or UK oriented. British singer Gabrielle, age 52, is listed on the same line as Musgraves above the other names. She has no following in the US but she’s obviously popular across the Pond.

Listen, for a female singer to open for Adele, they have to be good. And brave!

With all these performers, my guess is Adele’s set is 90 minutes, in and out, just the hits and some dirty jokes. We’ll see if any guest stars show up — Chris Stapleton? — or celeb friends in the audience.
