Adele’s latest concert announcement is hitting a sour note with some fans.

The “Easy on Me” singer took to Instagram Thursday to announce the lineup for her upcoming performances at Hyde Park in London, which are set for July 1 and 2, according to the British Summer Time Hyde Park official website.

The lineup will feature artists such as alternative R&B singer Mahalia, Grammy-nominated Tiana Major9, British soul pop singer Gabrielle and country-pop songstress Kacey Musgraves. Adele said the “all female bill” will “blow (fans’) socks off”.

“It’s going to be incredible, there’s a whole host of us performing all day,” Adele captioned the post. “I can’t wait to share the main stage with you ladies.”

However, several fans expressed their discontent in the comments section on Instagram that Adele is promoting the Hyde Park shows and has remained mum on the status of her Las Vegas residency. “Weekends with Adele" was postponed in January due to COVID-19-related production delays.

“Are you kidding me?” @bianca_darcy wrote. "And you still are quiet about Vegas? I’m disappointed in you.”

“It has been months and no update!” @Oscarina wrote.

“But when is Vegas happening queen?!” @natalie.glez commented.

“What about the residency dates????” @whoisjacobb commented.

As of publication, no new dates or updates on the residency have been posted to Adele’s official website.

Set to kick off Jan. 21 at the Colosseum in Caesars Palace and run through April, the string of Vegas concerts marked Adele's first live performance dates open to the public following the release of her fourth studio album "30.” The British pop star said she was "gutted" by the last-minute cancellation, which was announced a day before the residency was set to begin.

Ticketholders remain trapped in a show-postponement purgatory. Those who bought tickets via third-party sellers are unable to apply for refunds because company policies won’t allow it until the concerts are officially canceled or rescheduled. And reselling isn’t an option because new dates have not been announced.

There’s also the ancillary financial sting: the hundreds and thousands of dollars spent on travel to Vegas, food and lodging.

Adele opened up about the postponement of her Vegas residency during an appearance on "The Graham Norton Show" in February.

“I tried my hardest,” Adele told host Graham Norton. “I really thought I would be able to pull something else together in time, and that was why it was so last minute, which I regret obviously that I kept going with it until that late in the day.”

But Adele said she stood by her decision to postpone her shows instead of doing a scaled-down version she wouldn't have been satisfied with.

“People will see straight through me up onstage, being like, ‘She doesn’t want to be doing this,’ " Adele said. "I’ve never done anything like that in my life, and I’m not gonna start now.”

Though rescheduled dates have not been released, Adele told Norton the residency will “absolutely (be) happening this year.” She also shared that she will be taking a hiatus after the album cycle for "30" to recharge and hopes to one day expand her family.
