Adele Fans Furious As Tickets Are Reselling For Ten Times Original Price

Adele fans who missed out on getting tickets for her two shows in London's Hyde Park next July have been angered by the fact that tickets are now being spotted on resale sites for more than 10 times the original price.

Of course, the tickets were already pretty steep, with some exclusive tickets selling for the thick end of £600, but now they're popping up for about £7,500 on various resale sites.

The actual sale itself was over in the blink of an eye, with tickets disappearing in seconds after they went on sale.

Not bad, given how many people Adele can pack into Hyde Park over the space of two days.

Even better for those who've organised the gig, given that the cheapest entry was around £90 for general admission.

So, if you want to see Adele next summer at the British Summer Time event, your only shout now is to head on over to the resale sites.

Be prepared to pay significantly more than you would have done, though.

It's the first time that Adele has played in London for five years, and Diamond tickets were available for £579 in the actual sale.

Now, you're looking at £7,441 per ticket if you want to get hold of one of those.

Those aforementioned £90 general admission tickets are now on sale for £747, which is frankly ridiculous.

Organisers have previously stated that anyone who is trying to get in on a resold ticket from an unofficial site will be turned away at the gates, but that hasn't stopped a heap of people from trying to cash in, or people from chancing their arm at it regardless.

This means that a load of Adele fans have been left sorely disappointed.

One took to Twitter to say: "So p***ed off with trying to buy @Adele tickets. Sold out in like 2 minutes and within 15 mins, tickets are on eBay for 3x the price. Why are people d***heads!?!?"

Money, that's why.

Another person shared a screenshot of a resale site, writing: "Honestly hate that this is allowed to happen! MASSIVE Price mark ups on tickets from the pre sales to make loads of money and exploit everyone else."

A third said: "Those who got tickets are mainly re-selling platforms.

"They have plenty of tickets for resale 5 times their original price.

"It's absolutely outrageous. I was 1783 in the queue and when I went in there was nothing left."
