Adele concert tickets sold out in minutes around Canada, which has unlucky fans resorting to StubHub. There, the prices rose 5 times higher, starting at $275 for balcony seats and then up to $500-2000 for floor seats. One scalper has listed a ticket for an outrageous $9494 (Club section). Normally, tickets cost $37.50-$147.50 for arena seating, and up to $747.50 for Gold Hospitality.
To save tickets for fans and lower the reselling of tickets, some of the tickets were sold by credit card only, known as paperless tickets. In this case, the buyers will need to present their credit card and I.D. upon entry to the venue. Adele is a strongly against scalping, explaining that “the resale of tickets will not be tolerated” on her website when she announced her European tour.
