The tickets were in such high demand, leaving many eager fans heartbroken after the tickets were snatched up by many people who aimed to resell the tickets.

Thousands of fans waited in a virtual queue for hours after tickets went on sale last week, but were left disappointed after not being able to get their hands on them.

Fans began resulting to resale sites, but noticed the prices were almost 12 times the original price.

The "Diamond tickets", which includes a seat in the VIP area of Hyde Park and early entry, were originally sold for £579, but are now being resold at £7,441 each.

General admission tickets were originally sold for £90.45, but are now being priced at £747 per ticket by resellers.

Concert organisers have warned fans to be cautious with purchasing resale tickets, as concert-goers could be refused entry or their tickets could be made invalid.

The 'Easy On Me' star has previously spoke out about ticket touts, saying her fans should be able to attend her shows without paying a lot of money.

Following the release of her five-time Grammy award-winning album, 25, Adele went with Twickets as the official resale partner for her concerts.

The move, which took place in 2016, was an attempt to stop secondary sites selling tickets to her shows at extortionate prices.

The sites statement wrote: "Adele ticket holders who can no longer attend a show may sell them on to other fans through Twickets at no more than the price they originally paid."

However, fans are yet to see the same measures being taken this year. See fans reactions to the ticket resale prices below.
