Let me tell you something, friends. This past week I spent two freakin' days trying to get Adele tickets, and guess what? I did not get them. I wish I could say I was alone in this defeat, but alas, I was not. As Billboard relays, Ticketmaster president Jared Smith said that there was "An all-time record of 10 million + fans, " who attempted to get Adele tickets for her upcoming North American tour. Billboard explains that Smith revealed that number in a letter to the Ticketmaster employees who were perhaps unfairly blamed by the media and angry fans for the whole soul crushing Adele ticket-getting attempt. Wrote Smith to his team, "Unfortunately, when there is such a exceptional artist with unprecedented demand against short supply, there are inevitably going to be disappointed fans."
Uh, you think?! As with most things, I figured the best way for all us Adele losers to handle the absence of concert tickets is to cope through music. Not just any music, of course — Adele's music. Trust me, once you get over the initial sting, it'll be cathartic. Here are a few Adele songs that perfectly span the emotions of what it was like to try and ultimately not succeed at getting tickets to the Adele Live concert. Listen, I've made mix tapes for lesser things.
