Concert tickets for musicians such as Adele and Bruce Springsteen are hitting record high prices as fans were shocked to see the cost rise.
British singer Adele, who revealed on Monday that she has changed her Las Vegas residency and canceled tour dates, is selling concert tickets on StubHub for between $600 and more than $40,000.
On Monday night, two tickets for the “Easy On Me” singer went for $41,280 each. Other ticket levels sold for $20,000 or more.
Ticket prices for the “Weekends with Adele” tour, which will run from November 18, 2022 to March 25, 2023, start at over $1,100 on Tuesday. Tickets are currently unavailable on Ticketmaster.

Meanwhile, fans got another sticker shock last week when they tried to buy concert tickets to see rock musician Bruce Springsteen.
Seats have skyrocketed to $4,000 due to Ticketmaster’s “dynamic pricing program,” which raises prices based on demand.
Fans were stunned by Springsteen’s upcoming tour costs, as Ticketmaster dealt with negative prices on Sunday to release cost statistics.
One critic took to Twitter to draw their ire, saying: “I have to get a second mortgage to get a ticket.”
Another Springsteen fan tweeted that they were waiting for a quote to sell their kidney to afford a concert ticket: “Waiting for a quote to sell my kidney to get seats for nosebleeds.
Others still blamed Ticketmaster for their “garbage” policy.
However, the popular ticketing and distribution company stood by its “dynamic pricing program” and said that only 1.3% of total tickets for “The Boss” tour sold for more than $1,000, according to Variety.
