American fans of Adele are having a tough day. Tickets for the singer’s North American tour went on sale to the public today and were immediately snapped up, causing a fair amount of grief for the tens, possibly hundreds, of thousands of fans who tried to book a seat. The demand is hardly surprising considering the singer has broken record after record (after record) with her album 25.


At press time there were 1,000 tickets to Adele’s opening night show available on secondary ticketing site Stubhub, ranging in price from $10,000 (Ksh 1000000) to $245 (Ksh 24,500)
