After getting over a chest infection Adele returned to her UK tour last night in Leicester.

The singer performed in front of about 3,000 fans at De Montfort Hall.

She had to postpone a few shows at the start of her tour because she was so ill, they will now be rescheduled.

Fans travelled from London, Nottingham and Mansfield to see her, with dozens saying it was 'the best gig they'd ever seen!'

Fake Tickets

200 people were turned away from the concert because they'd bought fake tickets.

Kerri and her friends travelled from Mansfield and were gutted when they were told their tickets weren't genuine:

"We were absolutely devastated; we'd been looking forward to this for weeks.

"We've lost nearly three hundred pounds with the tickets and travel expenses."

Teacher, Kerri, says they won't use dodgy sites again:

"Definitely not unless it's a reputable site, I think we've been badly burnt by this one."

Mansfield Teacher Kerri talks to Capital

In a statement, De Montfort Hall told Capital:

'Unfortunately there were some fraudulent tickets in circulation. We put out warnings in advance of the show that we'd been made aware of a website selling fake tickets and urged customers not to buy. We also asked people to get in touch if they had any concerns over the authenticity of their tickets.

'Unfortunately we still had a number of people turn up last night who were in possession of these tickets and we estimate that it total approximately 200 were turned away.

'As with any venue we have a set capacity for health & safety reasons and therefore unfortunately we're unable to honour these purchases. We urge people in future to only buy tickets from our own box office or other official ticket outlets, such as See Tickets and Ticketmaster.'
