MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Many frustrated Adele fans took to social media Thursday morning after failed attempts to get tickets to her July shows at Xcel Energy Center.
One of the most popular artists in the music world right now, Adele will be performing two shows in St. Paul on July 5-6 to kick off her latest tour. Tickets went on sale at 10 a.m. on the Ticketmaster website, and they were hard to come by for many.
Those who were able to actually get tickets voiced their excitement on Twitter. Those who thought they were getting tickets, but didn’t, wasted little time in expressing their disappointment and anger.
Tickets for the shows ranged on Ticketmaster from $37.45 to $147. The site experienced significant issues Thursday morning as likely thousands flooded the site to make their purchase. Some Adele fans thought they had tickets, only to get denied at the order confirmation page. Here’s a sampling of the Twitter reaction.

The good news, if you want to call it that, is that tickets for the Adele shows are available on ticket broker websites like StubHub. But you’re going to pay a hefty price for them. Tickets there start at $680 and go as high as $1,500.
