Over 10 Million Adele Fans Tried to Buy Tour Tickets Yesterday!

Over 10 Million Adele Fans Tried to Buy Tour Tickets Yesterday!

If you weren’t able to get tickets to Adele‘s concert tour, you’re in the same boat as millions of other people.

Ticketmaster president Jared Smith says that they had record amounts of traffic on Thursday (December 17) for the general on-sale of the tour dates with over 10 million fans rushing to the site.

In just New York City, there were four million people trying to get their hands on some of the 120,000 tickets available for the six shows at Madison Square Garden.

Despite reports that Ticketmaster’s site crashed, the company says that the systems were performing well throughout the day and they “delivered a good experience for as many fans as possible.”

“Unfortunately, when there is such an exceptional artist with unprecedented demand against short supply, there are inevitably going to be disappointed fans,” Smith wrote in a memo (via Billboard). “As you know, artists are the center of Live Nation and we work side by side with them to meet their goals. In this case, we worked with Adele’s team to help achieve their goal of having a consistent set-up across all the different ticketing companies that were selling dates on her North American tour. Although that has clearly created confusion with fans and ultimately the media on what happened on which sites, we wanted to make sure you know just how much we appreciate your incredible preparation and that we are pleased with how we did.”

  • joshemerson

    I got tickets for Michigan! Unfortunately they’re way up towards the top but I’m just glad to have them after hearing all the people that missed out.

  • Gina

    Get it girl.

  • MALP1

    I got mine on presale for 2 tix. It was choice seats too for her LA Stop. Songkick is really good. Artists should use there services often to allow fans to have it first before the scalpers destroys the party.

  • dalovelee

    Yes ticket scalpers got tickets and they buy them only to resell them at a much higher cost. And all that’s available are the extremely costly VIP tickets that only wealthy people can afford. That’s not her fans buying tickets that scam artists.

  • Taran

    Hopefully she will add more dates

  • toastie postie

    Oh, lucky you. I can’t wait. Hope she takes care of her voice. We are near the end of her tour.

  • toastie postie

    Even before we waited by the computer, for the time the tickets were going to be available for sell to the general public, I saw sites that were already offering tickets at a horrible mark up. How is that possible? Do the big ticket places have 1st dibs? Or are they taking the chance that they will get the tickets?

  • justno

    Ditto .. Got LA on the presale after 40 minutes in the waiting room.

    I was able to get tickets for 3 shows at madison square garden. The app was so fast, I had windows open on my laptop and they were “waiting..” for over 3 hours. I forgot I had them opened, came back to my computer and it was still searching even after they were already sold out. My advice next time is don’t use the website! Use the app!! Have your form of payment saved already. It helps to order tickets in pairs too. I was at her Radio City show in November and it was phenomenal! I’d pay to see her 50 more times, it’s worth every penny.

    I hid behind my cubicle at work trying so hard to get my hands on a few seats. First on presale day and then again yesterday with no luck… :-( I guess I’ll just have to catch it when it comes out on DVD.

  • Mz Linz

    You’re so lucky! I live in Michigan too and tried for two days to get seats in The Palace!! I was stunned that even with a presale code they were gone!! There isn’t a bad seat in the place and I’m sure the show will be fantastic! Have a great time!
