Concert tickets for musicians such as Adele and Bruce Springsteen are reaching record prices as fans were shocked to see the skyrocketing costs.
British singer Adele, who revealed she had postponed her Las Vegas residency and canceled tour dates on Monday, has sold concert tickets for between $600 and over $40,000 on StubHub.
On Monday night, two tickets for the “Easy On Me” singer were priced at $41,280 each. Other tiers of tickets were sold for $20,000 each or more.
Ticket prices for the “Weekends with Adele” tour, which runs from November 18, 2022 to March 25, 2023, start at over $1,100 on Tuesday. Tickets are currently not available on Ticketmaster.

Meanwhile, fans got another sticker shock last week when trying to buy concert tickets to see rock musician Bruce Springsteen.
Seats skyrocketed to $4,000 due to Ticketmaster’s “dynamic pricing program,” which raises prices based on demand.
Fans have been stunned by the costs of Springsteen’s upcoming tour, as Ticketmaster addresses the price backlash on Sunday to release cost statistics.
One critic took to Twitter to stir their outrage, saying, “I have to get a 2nd mortgage to get a ticket.”
Another Springsteen fan tweeted that they were waiting for a quote on selling their kidney to afford a concert ticket: “Waiting for the quote on selling my kidney to get nosebleed seats.”
Others continued to blame Ticketmaster for their “waste” policies.
However, the popular ticket sales and distribution company maintained its “dynamic pricing program” and said only 1.3% of total “The Boss” tour tickets sold over $1,000. , according to Variety.
