Ticketmaster reports that their website didn’t crash, as some who tried to procure Adele tickets believed. They did admit that due to the incredibly high volume of traffic, the website was significantly slowed down.

On Thursday approximately 1,000 Adele tickets were available on StubHub. They ranged in price from a high of $10,000 to a low of $245.
Adele and her ticket sales team did their best to avoid scalpers getting their hands on tickets. When her European tour tickets went on sale, fans had to first register on her website. 500,00 complied. 57,000 Adele tickets were purchased in this manner.
