Tickets for the singer’s Las Vegas residency sold out within minutes, and dealers pushed prices up to between $ 2,000 and $ 35,000.

Reselling concert tickets is a quick way for many to earn a few extra bucks. While it is a lucrative business for scammers, it can be a thorn in the side of the industry and the fans alike. Jazmine Suliivan recently spoke about the controversy surrounding her tour and how dealers have grabbed a massive amount of tickets and are selling them at astronomical prices.

Adele too recently paid the price for the greed of the dealers

Adele is expected to make an average of over $ 2 million per show at her upcoming Las Vegas concert residency, Weekends With Adele . According to Billboard, the 33-year-old artist is scheduled to perform twice a weekend from Jan.21 to April 16 at the Colosseum at Caesars Palace, and tickets sold out in about six hours earlier this week on Ticketmaster. Fans of the singer tried to purchase tickets from dealers, but found that prices had risen from $ 2,000 to $ 35,000. The total number of tickets on sale for the 24 shows that will take place in this hall, which has a capacity of around 4,200 seats, is estimated at 100,000, according to the DailyMail. 

The price of tickets to see the Grammy Award-winning artist is reported to range between $ 5,000 for the first three rows of the Ticketmaster Platinum Program Orchestra, $ 860 for the front section of the Colosseum and $ 600 for the front part of the upper balcony of the room.

Therefore, while her dedicated fanbase is excited to see her on stage, especially after she said she was not planning on touring her latest 30 album due to the pandemic, many do not. are not able to afford it. However, many resellers will have to lower their prices because the general public will not be able to find the necessary cash in the long run. The fact remains that they are doing a good job.
