More than 10M tried to buy Adele concert tickets

Were you stuck in a waiting room Thursday when tickets for Adele’s 2016 tour went on sale?

So were more than 9 million other folks.

According to Billboard, more than 10 million people flooded Ticketmaster¬†Thursday when 750,000 pre-sale tickets were made available for Adele’s North America tour, kicking off on July 5.

North America Ticketmaster president Jared Smith sent out a memo thanking workers site-wide, stating, “Unfortunately, when there is such a exceptional artist with unprecedented demand against short supply, there are inevitably going to be disappointed fans.”

Nevermind, we’ll find some tour like you.
