If you were one of our listeners who won Adele tickets this week, Lucky you!! Tickets for Adele’s much anticipated U.S. tour sold out minutes after going on sale.
Many fans are blaming Ticketmaster for their inability to get tickets, claiming that the site crashed or was slow. In an interview with Billboard, Ticketmaster blamed heavy traffic for the site’s lag time and denied a crash altogether.
Fans have also turned their rage to sites like StubHub, that are now selling Adele tickets at incredibly inflated prices, ranging from $10,000 to $245.
For their part, StubHub has announced that they will donate a portion of Adele ticket proceeds to Hollands Opus Foundation. The foundation provides instruments to schools with struggling music programs, but that may not be enough to appease enraged fans.
So, if you’ve got your Adele tickets, hold on to them tight! Those things are worth gold now!
