Up to 15,000 extra Adele tickets went on sale this morning - but you had to be quick to get them.

The extra tickets to Adele's three New Zealand shows were confirmed last night after promoters announced plans to erect a temporary grandstand on the north bank of Mt Smart Stadium.

That boosted capacity for each of Adele's three shows, on March 23, 25 and 26, by an extra 5000 tickets for each show.

Those extra tickets went on sale at 9am today, but quickly disappeared. Promoters confirmed they sold out in 10 minutes.


Adele broke records by selling out her three New Zealand shows in 54 minutes when more than 100,000 tickets went on sale last month.

She now holds the records for the fastest selling tour in New Zealand, the most number of shows performed at Mt Smart, and the highest number of tickets sold in a day.

It will be the Hello singer's first time in New Zealand, and comes on the back of her chart-topping album 25.
