Adele fans scrambled for tickets after discovering there were already 270,000 people ahead of them in the electronic queue for her upcoming concert.
Tickets for the singer’s upcoming Munich tour went on sale at 9am today – but moments after sales opened there were already thousands queuing.
The popular singer-songwriter has already added four extra dates due to high demand for her shows in August – making 10 in total.
Fans went wild in the comments section saying they were ‘ready for war’ in a bid to get their hands on tickets.
The shows are the first European dates she has done since 2016, with many calling for the singer to embark on a world tour.

Frustrated fans took to social media to express their disappointment
Adele, who currently performs weekly in a Las Vegas residency, will perform in Europe on the 2nd, 3rd, 9th, 10th, 14th, 16th, 23rd, 24th, 30th and 31st of August 2024.
General sale for tickets will open at 09:00 on Friday.
The singer – known for her hit songs such as Rolling in the Deep, Someone Like You, and Set Fire To The Rain – will perform in an open-air setting created exclusively for the special shows.
The custom-made arena will have a combination of seated grandstands and stands with capacity for 80,000 people a night.
Adele announced the news on Instagram last Wednesday, telling her fans: ‘About a few months ago I got a call about a summer run of shows. I was as happy as anything with my shows in London’s Hyde Park and my stay in Vegas, so I had no other plans.’
‘However, I was too curious not to pursue and enjoy this idea – a one-off, custom pop-up stadium designed around whatever show I want to put on? Eyes!? A bit scared in the middle of Europe? In Munich?’
‘It’s a bit random, but still awesome! Just after the Euros? Come on England! With the Olympics next door? Go on Simone! And some of my favorite artists who also play shows? Why Yes!!’
‘I haven’t played in Europe since 2016! I couldn’t think of a more amazing way to spend my summer and end this beautiful phase of my life and career with shows closer to home during such an exciting summer. Guten Tag babes x.’
But frustrated fans took to social media to express their disappointment to find more than 270,000 people queuing moments after sales opened.

Adele will have performed an incredible 50 weekends of Adele dates (100 shows in total) by the end of the series. She also thrilled her UK audience at her sold-out London Hyde Park shows in 2022.
Last week, the singer confirmed she planned to embark on another world tour with the release of her next album, but admitted it wouldn’t be anytime soon.
Her weekends with Adele residency at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace will end in June 2024, freeing up her schedule.
During her show on Saturday, Adele said she would like to take her next album on tour, but also confessed that she didn’t think she would write the new record for a while.
Her last album was 30, released in 2021 to great commercial and critical success, winning British Album of the Year at the 2022 Brit Awards and becoming the best-selling album of the year.
Adele is currently performing the final leg of her highly acclaimed Las Vegas residency Weekends With Adele, which runs through mid-June.
Consisting of Friday and Saturday night performances at the Colosseum at Caesars Palace, by the end of its run she will have performed an incredible 50 dates and a total of 100 shows.
The residency reportedly earned her a staggering $1 million per show, with the New York Post claiming her extended run netted her roughly $2 million per show and a guaranteed $105 million total.
The publication also claimed that her deal includes a 5 percent sweetener if ticket sales minus expenses exceed her nightly windfall.
Additionally, Adele has inked a reported deal whereby she receives a whopping 50 percent cut of the merchandise.
The merchandise includes Rolling in the Deep sweatshirts for $110 a pop, as well as a bottle of wine, necklaces that read “divorced,” socks with glasses of wine on them and even Adele-branded wipes.
The venue has a capacity of around 4,200 and tickets are estimated to cost up to $16,940 (£12,460).
Adele is also reported to be on track to become the highest-grossing performer per show in Vegas history.
