’25’ heads for another million-selling week plus sold out 2016 U.S. Tour

Adele released the album 25 on Nov. 18 and it completely shattered record sales. Earning the biggest first-week sales on record with 3.38 million copies sold in the United States, it is on track for a third million-selling week. On top of her record breaking record sales, Adele announced her 2016 North American Tour.

On Dec. 14, Adele announced that she will return to the States for her first tour since 2011 when she cancelled most of her dates due to a vocal cord hemorrhage. So of course her announcement provoked excitement into every North American fan.

Tickets went on sale Dec. 17 and unfortunately for the thousands of people who were refreshing their browsers, the tickets sold out within minutes on StubHub and there were longer wait times on Ticketmaster. Special codes were sent out to those who registered for Adele.com and they had first pick for the pre-sale on Dec. 16, however, the struggle was real and some were unsuccessful in their quest.

The original ticket prices ranged from $40 – $150 but being sold out completely, Scalpers are reselling for double, even triple the amount they were originally.

Adele has been working with Songkick to keep this from happening and to give fans a greater chance of snagging a pair of tickets. Songkick controlled only 8 percent of the tour tickets and some of the remaining tickets ended up on the resale market.

Adele recently played her first full concert at Radio City Music Hall in New York City. The performance, Adele Live in New York City, gave a taste of what is to come live on tour.
