It’s no surprise Adele‘s Vegas show is a hot ticket, but it’s hard to imagine anyone could have predicted just how expensive resale prices would be to see the singer live.
The rollout for “Weekends with Adele” started this week — a series of Friday/Saturday shows at Caesars Palace from January to April — and fans were crazy to get their hands on tickets.
Unsurprisingly, presales sold out within minutes, and tickets were quick to popup on resale services like StubHub and Ticketmaster. However, fans who didn’t capitalize on the initial sale were pissed to see resale prices … which ranged from $2k to $35k!!!

One fan wrote, “Adele out her rabbit a** mind with these concert ticket prices.” Another chimed in, ” … guess we’re the ones paying her husband alimony.”
Of course, re-sellers can decide to sell their seats at whatever price they want — it’s up to fans whether or not to spend the money — and they’ll likely take a drop … but the opening price is crazy, nonetheless.
Adele recently performed for some of her celebrity friends in L.A. — including Oprah, Drake and Lizzo — and helped pull off a surprise marriage proposal.
