Adele fans fuming as BST tickets resell for £7,500 online after show sold out in seconds

ADELE fans are raging as tickets to her surprise at BST Hyde Park show are being flogged on resale site for up to £7,500.

Droves dutifully logged on to ticketing sites when the performances, in London's Hyde Park, went on sale at 10am yesterday.

However, many found themselves stuck in huge queues or said they found there were no tickets left just seconds after the sale opened.

They were left in tears after the huge shows – which are her first in London in five years – sold out in second.

But now those hotly contested tickets are popping up on resale sites at eye-watering prices.

Tickets are being jacked up by up to 12 times their original price with the 'diamond tickets' which originally sold for £579 being flogged at £7,441 each.

General admission tickets which originally were going for a reasonable £90.45, were spotted on the resale sites for up to £747.

Even though organisers have warned tickets bought on unofficial sites could see punters refused entry, it hasn't stopped desperate fans from forking out the big bucks.

MP Alex Davies-Jones, 32, called out legislation which was designed to stop this sort of scalping.

"Unsurprisingly they’re all sold out, but shock horror there’s plenty for sale on third party sites… Clearly the current legislation isn’t working as it’s not enforced," he angrily tweeted.

Tickets to the BST Hyde Park shows ended up on resale sites with minutes.

One fan tweeted: "So p***ed off with trying to buy @Adele tickets. Sold out in like 2 minutes and within 15 mins, tickets are on eBay for 3x the price. Why are people d***heads!?!?"

The Easy on Me singer will play two huge London as part of British Summertime Hyde Park next summer.

The announcement follows the release of her latest single 'Easy on Me' after a six year hiatus.

New album '30' is due for release in November and will be Adele's fourth studio album, and her first new music since 2015.

Apparently the album sounds “so amazing,” according to friend Alan Carr.

Speaking about the new album during a Grazia UK interview earlier this year, “I’ve heard some tracks on it,” adding, “Oh my gosh, it’s so amazing. It’s so amazing.”.

If fans were excited to hear 30, they'll be over the moon to see Adele live.

Her last world tour saw her play 121 shows in 2017, so we can only hope this is the start of her next tour.
