Heartbroken Adele Fans Freak Out on Twitter After Struggling to Get Tickets to Her U.S. Tour
By Zach Seemayer
Adele's fans on the American side of the Atlantic did not have a good day on Thursday.
Tickets for the "Hello" singer's North American tour went on sale to the public at 10 a.m. and were immediately swept up by lucky fans and ticket broker sites, leaving many grief-stricken Adele-lovers in the lurch.
Fans complained about everything from the price of the tickets to the long wait-times for buying tickets to the unavailability of the tickets – seemingly nothing was going well for the majority of those hoping to see Adele in person when her tour comes stateside in July.
With Ticketmaster's servers lagging due to high traffic volume, according to Billboard, and increased security measures, implemented by Adele's team to discourage scalpers, many looking to purchase tickets had to kill time complaining about the process on Twitter.
