Adele sold-out two shows at the 2022 Hyde Park Summer Festival.

This concert film could replicate what Beyonce did with her Coachella performances. She turned those shows into a behind-the-scenes documentary for Netflix. Naturally, what made Homecoming so compelling was Beyonce’s dancing the pageantry.
