Adele tickets: Joy, despair and outrage over prices for 2022 Hyde Park performance

Adele fans were able to buy tickets to see the global hitmaker after she announced two surprise shows at Hyde Park next July.

People are flying in from all over the world to see what will be Adele’s first performance on UK soil for 5 years.

After her new number 1 song, ‘Easy on Me’ broke multiple streaming records, along with her album announcement, the demand for these tickets was expected to be through the roof.

Some eager fans had to wait behind up to a staggering 129,000 other fans on Ticketmaster, all having the aim of purchasing tickets.

At 11:20 Ticketmaster tweeted to confirm pre-sale access tickets had sold out. However, fans who unfortunately missed out will get another chance to grab tickets when they are released on general sale, Saturday the 30th of October.

How did people from your area get on with securing tickets?

One twitter user from Birmingham couldn’t contain his excitement when he immediately went to the social media site to confirm he is going to see Adele next year. His tweet read: “Tickets for Adele at Hyde Park Sorted!!”

On the other side of the coin, a Twitter user from just outside Birmingham, was baffled as to how there wasn’t a policy for customers who missed out on tickets for Adele’s cancelled performance in 2017. His tweet read: “@Adele please explain how my wife had two tickets for your concert in 2017 and she has waited all this time and this morning was unable to get any tickets from 10am after a wait in the queue. Surely there should be a policy for customer who missed out in 2017!”

It was a mix of joy and jubilation and people getting Adele tickets, but dismay and sadness for those who missed out. Despite not getting tickets, there is a chance to get some that go on general sale Saturday, but she will surely tour with her new album ‘30’ in 2022 and 2023, a tour that will most likely be going to the major cities in the UK.
