Adele tickets on sale for thousands of pounds on secondary ticketing sites

30 November 2016, 10:44 | Written by Laurence Day

Tickets for Adele's new Wembley shows are already being flogged for thousands - they're not even on general sale.

StubHub and GetMeIn currently have no tickets on sale - perhaps they've heeded the warnings from pop icon - but Viagogo seemingly DGAF.

The 29 June date has dozens of tickets available for well over £1000, with some approaching £9000, as you can see above.

The 1 July show has tickets on sale for over £9000.

There are plenty of tickets on sale for much more reasonable prices, but it's interesting that Viagogo is specifically "recommending" these outrageous prices.

This isn't the first time Adele fans have been stung by the services - earlier this year Adele's first UK shows were on sale for well over £10,000. The record-breaking star has been vocal on her dislike for touts, going as far as to ban them from buying tickets, but apparently that's not enough to deter them.

Earlier this month the Culture, Media and Sport Committee met to discuss abuse in the ticketing market, with StubHub unrepentent - a representative told the committe that they're "under no legal obligation to police our site".

Pre-sale tickets for Adele's new Wembley shows began this morning; general sale is on 2 December at 10am.
