Get ready to fight over the hottest concert tickets in the music world.
Adele has been dominating the Billboard charts with her third studio album, 25, for the third straight week at No 1, selling 5.19 million copies in the United States.
Now, she will be kicking off the 2016 tour for her latest album by zig zagging across America with 56 tour dates from St. Paul, Minnesota, on July 5, to Mexico City on Nov. 15.

If you haven’t set a calendar reminder already, now is the time to do it. Tickets go on sale at 11 a.m. ET, 10 a.m. CT, on Thursday.
Here are three ways to get Adele tickets:
1) Score concert tickets by joining the Adele fan club. Many musicians reward their fan club members with access to presale tickets. Adele will be sending out an email Tuesday, with a passcode for members for up to four tickets. Click here to join Adele’s fan club.
2) Ticketmaster: If you can’t get presale tickets, be quick with your credit card info and seat selection Thursday to scoop up tickets online at Ticketmaster.
3) Fan-to-fan tickets: All is not lost if you see “SOLD OUT.” That’s because someone is always willing to sell tickets or has a scheduling conflict. Check out Stubhub, eBay, Seat Geek and Craigslist for the latest tickets on sale from fans.
Be fast if you plan to scoop up tickets online. Otherwise, you could be paying scalper prices outside the concert hall or online at a fan-to-fan site.
Keep in mind that Adele’s shows in Ireland sell out in three minutes flat. In some cases, tickets for her concerts overseas are selling for over $7,500 (originally priced at less than $150).
Just last Friday, Bruce Springsteen’s new tour sold out in some areas in 15 minutes. His tickets went live at 10 a.m. Friday on Ticketmaster and by 10:15 am, poof — SOLD OUT.
If 15 minutes are all it takes for tickets to The Boss to sell out, imagine how quickly Adele’s tickets will disappear. If there is a boss lady to answer to this winter, she’s the one.
To kick off the excitement, NBC aired a concert, “Adele Live in New York City,” Monday at 10 p.m. ET on NBC.
