Sad Adele Fans Tweet Sad Adele Lyrics To Ticketmaster
"Tell me you're sorry, Ticketmaster, for everything that you've done..."
Tickets for Adele’s North American tour went on sale Thursday, prompting a stampede of fans trying to get their hands on them—followed almost instantly by waves of sadness from those who couldn’t. Turns out the only thing that makes people sadder than listening to Adele is not being able to listen to her.
The British singer’s first American tour in five years begins July 5 and goes until November 15, and she will perform 56 shows. As soon as fans signed in to Ticketmaster to get their tickets, most were faced with a virtual waiting room, which they interpreted as a bad sign.
So, naturally, they started tweeting sad Adele lyrics at Ticketmaster by the thousands.
HELLO @Ticketmaster FROM THE OUTSIDEEEE I TRIED TO BUY ADELE TICKETS BUT YOUR WEBSITE SAID I WAS DENIEDDDDDD

Many fans complained of a 45-minute wait in the Ticketmaster virtual waiting room, and many others said they were kicked out of their spot in line by a bad server. Some fans tweeted photos of themselves with multiple browsers open to better their chances of scoring seats.
Adele has reportedly struck up a partnership with Songkick, a site that helps manage tickets throughout fan communities and is supposed to prevent as many as possible from going to scalpers. Not even an hour after tickets went on sale, some were selling for more than $1,000 on StubHub, a popular ticket resale site. Most dates were reported sold out in just 15 minutes.
