Adele's US Tour Sells Out in Minutes and the Internet is Outraged
"Hello from the ticket line," tweeted one frustrated Adele Thursday morning. "I've clicked refresh a thousand times," to no avail, most likely: tickets to the eagerly anticipated North American tour (which begins July 5 in St. Paul, Minnesota and ends Nov. 15 in Mexico City, Mexico) for Adele's record-smashing 25 sold out in minutes. Twitter erupted in outrage; #adeletickets has been trending since.
Those "scum of the earth" resalers might be more appropriately labeled evil geniuses. On StubHub, tickets are going for as much as $3,500.
Benevolent ticket scalper Marks Tickets has tickets, too — for a price. Here's what a fan can expect to pay for Adele tickets in a few cities on her tour:
In Philadelphia, from $267 to $4,695 each!
