Getting tickets to one of Adele’s 2016 concerts may seem like an impossible task. Luckily for fans of the “Hello“ singer, it doesn’t necessarily have to be. If you’re one of many waiting in a virtual line to buy a seat to one of the 27-year-old British performer's upcoming events, we’ve got some pro tips you will definitely want to try.
1. Get An Account -- Tickets for Adele’s 2016 U.S. tour went on sale Thursday -- with presales kicking off on Adele’s website Wednesday -- so you’ll want to act quickly if you want to see one of the singer’s upcoming shows. In order to make sure your online ticket buying process goes smoothly, considering setting up a Ticketmaster or Live Nation account before starting your purchase.
2. Limit Search Options -- Fans will, of course, want the best seats available, but to make sure you don’t miss your chance to see Adele live, use Ticketmaster’s “Best Available” options when browsing for tickets. This option searches all available seats at the same time.
3. Open One Browser At A Time -- Opening multiple browsers while buying tickets will not work in your favor. Ticketmaster warns its user against doing this, saying they “bar multiple windows to stop unfair automated programs that shut you out.” They do, however, suggest using multiple computers at the same time. Don’t hit the refresh button too much, either! Doing so could also cause your browser to be blocked from buying tickets.
5. Make A Call -- If you prefer to order your tickets by phone, Live Nation’s Ticketmaster Express automated line is open 24/7 for ticket sales. Simply call: 866-448-7849 for assistance. If you want to speak to an actual employee regarding an upcoming U.S. event, call: 800-745-3000 Monday-Saturday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sunday from 12 p.m. to 6 p.m.
