Tickets for Adele shows across the nation went on sale Thursday morning, and since she seems to be single-handedly saving the music industry with record-breaking album sales, it’s not surprising that buying those ducats wasn’t necessarily going to be a pleasant experience.
And for many people on Twitter, trying to buy tickets through Ticketmaster was an unmitigated disaster.
Raise your hand if you’ve ever been personally victimized by Ticketmaster while trying to buy Adele tickets✋🏼

It was much easier to get Stat Wars tickets than Adele tickets. I’m still waiting in the queue. Austin should have sold on Ticketmaster.

If I keep ticketmaster open at the library… while I take my test… do you think i’ll still be waiting for Adele tickets?

Even trying to procure tickets the old-fashioned way didn’t help matters, either by phone or in person.
If you couldn’t get Adele tickets—and that’s likely a whole bunch of you—at least you can listen to this kick-ass version of “Hello” to brighten your day.
As for me, my wife wanted me to get two tickets, and an hour into the experience, this is what I’ve been watching. I’m still waiting (without much hope).
But at least a few people succeeded in their lengthy quest.
