Tickets for 'Weekends with Adele' are selling for a staggering £40,000 on resale websites after the highly anticipated Las Vegas residency was rescheduled for next month.
Fans of the British superstar are reportedly offering to pay the five-figure price, which has been advertised as the going rate for a seat close to the stage.
The extortionate cost appears to be unprecedented, eclipsing the resale ticket prices for previous A-list shows like Celine Dion and Elton John.
The most expensive seats, which are eight rows away from the stage of the Colosseum at Caesars Palace, are currently going for SeatGeek for $47,210 (£40,650). If that's a bit over your budget, cheaper tickets for seats at the back of the iconic venue are also available for £579. The news comes shortly after Adele dropped her 'I Drink Wine' music video teaser, which she had previously hinted would be the 'campest thing ever'.
Adele's Las Vegas residency will kick off on November 18 and run until March 25, 2023, after its initial dates were postponed at the last minute due to COVID-related delays. The Easy on Me singer later admitted she was unhappy with preparations for the concert series, telling Elle (opens in new tab) magazine that there was "no soul" to its stage setup.
"It was very disconnected from me and my band," Adele said. "It lacked intimacy." The 34-year-old also admitted that scrapping the Sin City performances was "devastating", calling it "the worst moment of my career, by far." The cancellation sparked outrage from countless fans, many of whom were unable to reclaim the money they'd spent for hotel accommodation and flights to Las Vegas.
In July 2023, seven months after the postponement, Adele announced that her Las Vegas residency had been rescheduled.
"Words can’t explain how ecstatic I am to finally be able to announce these rescheduled shows," she said on Twitter. "I truly was heartbroken to have to cancel them. But after what feels like an eternity of figuring out logistics for the show that I really want to deliver, and knowing it can happen, I’m more excited than ever!"

The Oh My God singer also apologized for disappointing her fans but reassured them that rescheduling was the right decision.
"I know for some of you it was a horrible decision on my part, and I will always be sorry for that," she wrote. "But I promise you it was the right one. To be with you in such an intimate space every week has been what I’ve most been looking forward to and I’m going to give you the absolute best of me."
