Adele Fans Experience Issues Getting Tickets For Xcel Shows.

Rumor had it Adele’s two Xcel Energy Center concerts would be the hottest ticket of next summer, but even arena representatives were surprised by the demand Thursday morning. “This blows every prior show out of the water,” Xcel Center representative Jora Bart said of the turnout at the arena box office, where she helped 549 people with numbered lottery wristbands line up.Ticketmaster’s servers and back end collapsed today under the strain of demand for all of Adele’s North American tour dates, which went on sale simultaneously, leaving many fans unable to buy tickets. Instead of breaking up sales for Adele’s more than 50 concerts on the tour into separate availability windows, tickets for the 38 shows Ticketmaster sold primary ticket sales for were released on the same day over the course of three hours.

A ticket-resale professional who was on site at the Xcel box office said he expects seats — priced originally at $39.45 to $147 — to sell for five times their face value. “I’m still shaking, I’m so excited,” said Cindy Stoewer of Minneapolis, who nabbed two tickets to both nights at the Xcel box office. “I don’t think I’d have gotten any if I had tried online.” Plenty of people who showed up in person also came up short. This isn’t the first time that Ticketmaster—often reviled for its hefty service charges and near-monopoly on the ticket-sales market for many events—has had problems meeting demand. The company, which is part of larger entertainment conglomerate Live Nation, settled with the FTC in 2010 in a dispute over technical errors on the company’s site forcing Bruce Springsteen fans to buy more expensive tickets from resellers. That means concertgoers can’t gain admission unless they bring the credit card used to purchase the ticket — which curbs scalping, but also can be a hindrance to legit fans.

Since the law changed, companies such as Ticket King — based in nearby Hudson, Wis., before the scalping ban was repealed — have since opened offices in the Twin Cities. Since its release Nov. 20, her record “25” has already sold 5 million copies in North America and spawned the No. 1 single “Hello.” It’s possible Adele might add a third St. Her tour itinerary has open dates after July 6, but the singer suffered vocal problems on her last tour four years ago and has been skittish about overextending her schedule.
