Of course, Adele is one of the biggest artists in the music world, and can probably sell out whatever venue she likes at whatever price she likes, but that doesn't mean that those who can't afford to go aren't a little miffed at it.
She's announced that she'll be performing as part of the British Summer Time gigs in Hyde Park on the first two days of July next year, and the pricing is tiered based upon where you'll be able to stand in the venue, as well as - presumably - the treatment you'll receive when you're there.
The general admission tickets are £90.45, to begin with.
If you want to get into the venue first, Primary Entry tickets are £111.85, Gold tickets are £273.95, and the Diamond VIP Experience is £379.95.
Should you want to go even more exclusive, access to the VIP Terrace will set you back £434.95, and the Ultimate Bar Diamond and Ultimate Terrace tickets come in at £579.95.
Of course, for this price you do get a lot extra for your money, including bar access and being closer to the stage, but a lot of people have complained about the prices.
Torn between trying to get Adele tickets or waiting forty years until her hologram is in concert for a third of the price- SHANE REACTION (@imshanereaction) October 26, 2021
Adele can charge £500 for gig tickets if she wants. That's the free market for you. What she CAN'T do is charge £500 for tickets and keep trying to maintain her unpretentious, down-to-earth, woman-of-the-people, "I'm only an 'umble Sarf Landan gel" shtick. It's one or the other.- Simon Price (@simon_price01) October 28, 2021
One said: "If you wanna feel poor right now, go and buy tickets for @Adele Hyde Park show. Babes, I love ya but I can't afford £90 a ticket."
Another wrote: "I spent 5 days in Greece for less than the price of an Adele ticket."
However, not everyone is so put off by the price.
Someone else commented: "To be fair if anyone can get away with selling tickets this expensive it's Adele and she knows it's still gonna sell out in minutes regardless so honestly good for her."
Others have pointed out that the event is organised by BST Hyde Park and therefore it really isn't up to Adele how much tickets are.
These are all fair points, but it doesn't change the fact that £579.95 is a lot for a gig ticket, no matter how 'diamond' or 'ultimate' the experience is.
If you're moaning about the price of Adele or any other concert tickets - can I ask when you last bought an album instead of streamed it? Perhaps that's the reason - someone's art isn't and shouldn't be free and concerts are the only way to make money these days- Elliot Moir (@FOElliotM) October 28, 2021
The top price tickets for Adele's Hyde Park 2022 shows are £580, and they can be paid for via instalments.- Dan Ogus (@DanOgus1) October 28, 2021
Obviously, if you happen to miss one, she'll be chasing payments !
Anyway, it's of little concern, as the presale took place earlier today - proper ticket sales start this Saturday - and they sold out within an hour.
Even the tickets worth as much as £400 were quickly snapped up.
There's a second presale tomorrow for American Express Cardmembers only, before anyone can attempt - key word attempt - to get theirs on Saturday morning at 10am.
BST Hyde Park tweeted: "Presale tickets for Adele at BST Hyde Park have now sold out.
"The next opportunity to purchase tickets is at 10am Friday 29 October with the American Express Cardmembers presale.
"The general on sale begins at 10am, Saturday 30 October."
May the odds be ever in your favour, I guess.
