Watch: Adele's tribute to London terror attack victims during Auckland performance video

British singer Adele has only just arrived in New Zealand, but she wishes she was at home after a terror attack in London on Thursday.

The superstar, who hails from north London, performed in Auckland hours after a knifeman drove through a crowd by the British Parliament, killing three people and injuring 40 others. Khalid Masood was shot by police after killing an officer, and died.

On stage at Mt Smart Stadium, Adele told fans it was heartwrenching to be so far away, as she dedicated her song Make You Feel My Love to the victims.

Adele performs in Auckland, a long way from home.

She added: "It's very strange not being home, all I want to do today is just be at home, me with my friends and family.

"Everyone's fine but there are four people who aren't fine (the death toll was four at the time of her performance) so let's dedicate this to them tonight and to my hometown."​

Adele will perform two more shows at Mt Smart Stadium on Saturday and Sunday before taking her tour home to London.
