Reporter: Tickets to Adele's 56-date north American tour went on sale at exactly 10:00 A.M. This morning. Within an hour, they'd sold out. Fans reporting technical glitches on, venting their anger online, using Adele's on lyrics. One tweeting "Hello from the ticket line. I've clicked refresh a thousand times." ? Never mind ? Reporter: And immediately, the scalpers swarmed. At noon, one of craigslist offering one for $7,500. 30 minutes later, he was asking $9,000. Tonight on Ebay, these four tickets to the show on Ebay, now on sale for more than $48,000 and climbing. The secret to getting the most coveted tickets? ? I must have called a thousand times ? Reporter: The only method that worked in our newsroom was a phone call to ticketmaster. Must have called a thousand times. Never was a lyric more true. But what was the best way that you found, online or actually with the phone today? Reporter: We talked to the most successful people that did get the tickets. They did one of two things. They used the ticketmaster app on their phone and purchased the tickets that way, or they did presale, because they were in Adele's fan club. So, join an artist's fan club, you get access to presale many times. That's smart. A lot of frustration today. Rebecca, thank you.
