Adele will begin her residency in Las Vegas soon, and many fans have already been priced out. After the shows, which take place at Caesars Palace, sold out within minutes of going on sale, fans were forced to hit the secondary market. They’re finding that resellers are placing insane value on the coveted tickets.
Fans flipped out on Twitter in reaction to their inability to see their favorite singer. The “Weekends with Adele” series will run from January to April at the Vegas venue. Some resellers are asking for as much as $35,000 for a single ticket.
Angry fans took to social media to blast scalpers and ticket resellers who they believe are taking advantage of fans. Front row seats, at retail, cost $680 plus fees. The markup is more than 51 times the normal asking price for an already expensive seat.
“A big F*CK YOU to all the people who fucking bought $680 FRONT SEAT ADELE PRESALE TICKETS JUST TO RESALE FOR 4K +
& A BIG F*CK YOU TO TICKETMASTER FOR FUCKING ALLOWING THAT SONS OF BITCHES UGH I HATE EVERYONE”
“If you bought the Adele tickets on Ticketmaster as a Verified fan just to flip & resell them for more money, I wish nothing but the worst for you! That’s was not the point of her trying to keep fans at getting tickets for an Honest Price.”
“Welp I was all set to but Adele tickets but not at these prices… guess we’re the ones paying her husband alimony”
The fans who are angry with the singer herself are a little misguided. Neither Adele or her management have any control over the prices being set by scalpers. Those are just greedy people trying to capitalize on fans with more money than brains.
If you could afford it, would you pay $35,000 to see Adele perform? Let us know in the comments!
