South Africa:Computicket Distances Itself from Alleged Adele “Coming to Africa” Concert

Computicket, a leading South African ticketing platform, has distanced itself from an advertisement for an Adele concert titled “ADELE PRESENTS: COMING TO AFRICA. The advertisement, which appeared on the Computicket website, offered tickets for the concert at a price of only R89.

However, Computicket has stated that it has no association with this event and that the advertisement was not placed by the company.

The ticketing platform has emphasized that it is not involved in the promotion or sale of tickets for this purported Adele concert.The news of Computicket’s distancing from the advertisement has raised questions about the legitimacy of the event and the ticket prices, which seem significantly lower than what would be expected for an Adele concert. Adele, the Grammy-winning British singer, has not announced any plans for a tour in Africa, adding to the skepticism surrounding this advertisement.

An Adele concert was advertised on the Computicket website where tickets went for only R89. Fans soon realised it was a scam.

As of now, there is no official confirmation from Adele or her representatives regarding a concert in Africa.

Computicket’s statement serves as a warning to potential concertgoers to be cautious about purchasing tickets for this event and to verify its authenticity before making any financial commitments
