Tickets for Adele have sold out in three minutes
Hearts were broken.

THIS MORNING, TICKETS for Adele’s shows in Dublin and Belfast went on sale.

This was the sight outside Stephen’s Green Shopping Centre this morning.

And these were the scenes outside The SSE Arena in Belfast.

Yes, thousands of Irish people got up today with one goal and one goal only: to successfully purchase Adele tickets.


Tickets went on sale at 9am and from then on, it was every man for himself.

While some lucky sods did manage to get tickets…

Most people experienced heartbreak.

Tickets reportedly sold out in three minutes in Dublin and 20 minutes in Belfast. What are we supposed to get our Mam now?

As you might expect, Ticketmaster was in vintage form this morning.

Scrambled captcha codes, accusations of being a robot, etc.

And fans were none too impressed when they were advised to buy tickets through Seatwave, a Ticketmaster-approved marketplace

Extortion it may be, but it seems a lot of people have followed Ticketmaster’s advice and are prepared to shell out the big bucks

This is what you’re greeted with when you visit Seatwave this morning.


God help us all.

And people have already taken to DoneDeal to try sell their tickets


Meanwhile, the #AdeleForCroker campaign has started.

In short, this is how most people feel today.

You’re a cruel mistress, Adele
