LONDON (VIP NEWS) — Adele has added additional dates in Manchester, London, Birmingham, Zurich, Amsterdam and Antwerp for her 2016 European tour.
It follows "phenomenal demand" for tickets for the singer`s first live shows since 2011, which went on general sale on Friday (December 4) and sold out in around 45 minutes.
Beginning with the first of two nights in Belfast on February 29, UK dates now include eight concerts in London at The O2, four at both Manchester Arena and Birmingham`s Genting Arena, and two at The SSE Arena, Hydro. She will also play four gigs at Ziggo Dome in Amsterdam, three nights in Antwerp, two dates each in Dublin, Berlin, Hamburg, Cologne, Zurich, Lisbon, Barcelona, Verona and Paris, and one-off shows in Stockholm, Oslo, Copenhagen and Herning.
General sale tickets for the newly-announced UK and European dates will be available on Monday, December 7, with advance sales will be exclusive to existing members of Adele.com on December 6.
The singer`s management team has put measures in place in a bid to bypass the secondary ticketing market, including screening known resellers during the registration process and voiding tickets that appeared on secondary sites. Birmingham-based The Ticket Factory has said that any tickets appearing on secondary websites which are brought to its attention will be cancelled if they were originally purchased from the leading, primary agent.
MD Stuart Cain said: “We genuinely want to make sure that the tickets we sell fall into the hands of genuine fans and so if we are aware of any of our tickets making their way to a secondary site, we will take steps to cancel them.
“Our technology allows us to trace these tickets using the serial numbers and we have the power to cancel and resell them.
“I’m hoping that Adele fans all over the country will get their tickets through an accredited STAR retailer without paying over the odds via these other sites. The promoter has also requested that customers purchasing tickets show photo ID on the night, meaning unless you’ve bought them from the primary agent, you’ll be refused entry to the venue.
“If customers do choose to buy them from secondary sites and they are found to originate from The Ticket Factory then they also run the risk of losing their money and being unable to attend the event and we will cancel those tickets where possible.” –According to Musicweek
