The first batch of presale tickets for Adele’s 2016 UK tour went on sale this morning, but it didn’t go too well judging by fans on Twitter.
Technical glitches affecting the Songkick website led to many fans being unable to access tickets to see Adele – with some trying for more than three hours to buy tickets.
Demand to see Adele live next year is naturally very high, as the record breaking singer hasn’t played a gig in the UK in over four years, which is why the sale of tickets has been staggered with a special presale today and another presale event tomorrow (Wednesday 2 December) before tickets go on general sale this Friday (4 December).
If you have already registered for Adele presale tickets you can buy them from Ticketmaster tomorrow morning.
The chaos of the presale event this morning led to Adele fans bombarding Twitter with their tales of woe:
Definitely the WORST presale I've ever had to encounter #AdeleTickets 😡

25 isn't the name of the album, it's the number of hours you have to queue for #adeletickets
