Adele is returning to the stage in 2022, four years after last performing in the UK where she had to cancel her final two concerts due to damaging her vocal cords.
After the announcement, fans flocked to her website to register for pre-sale access, crashing her site in the process.
However, some fans of the ballad queen have been left disappointed after struggling to sign up for pre-sale access and not being given priority despite missing out on seeing her live in 2017.
Four years ago, the ‘Hello’ singer was forced to cancel her final tour dates at Wembley Stadium after damaging her vocal cords, and fans were hoping they’d get priority tickets when she eventually returned to the stage.
One upset fan wrote on Twitter: “Dear @Adele, I was one of the unfortunate fans that had a ticket for 1st July 2017 show at Wembley Stadium, which you cancelled due to health concerns. I was under the impression I would get priority access to your next set of shows in the UK, but I’ve heard nothing of the sort.”
“Hi, back in 2017 you told us we’d have priority for the next shows due to the Wembley gigs being cancelled, so is that in place for the Hyde Park ones now? Thanks,” another fan tweeted to the ‘Easy On Me’ singer.
“If I don’t get tickets for @Adele tomorrow when I’ve still got my 2017 cancelled Wembley ticket after being promised priority I’m gonna be absolutely livid,” commented another.
Adele shared a statement at the time, telling her thousands of ticket-holders she was ‘devastated’ to have called time on the tour dates early.
“On medical advice I simply am unable to perform over the weekend,” she wrote. “To say I’m heart broken would be a complete understatement.”
