Adele's Guest Ticket Policy

Here is a guest ticket policy that was issued by Adele's Tour Manager for her North American Tour (apparently):
(sorry I can't copy and paste the text because it is an image file).

What do you think? Good idea, or should it be on Adele to include it in her ticket price and then donate? Just curious, because I've never seen something like it before, so it's a very unique idea. I am not sure how well received it would be.

I had to read this twice to understand it correctly - but to clarify: The $20.00 donation is not added to all tickets. It's just those that are "freebies" - the ones that are given away in things like radio contests, or promotional ones like those given to the press, or sponsors. She's not forcing everyone who wants to see her shows to donate...just those who aren't paying for their tickets. In a way, it is still "optional"; if you don't want to donate, just pay full price for your ticket through regular channels.

I think her heart's in the right place, but could've done it better I think. I agree that it would probably be better to include it in the ticket price, and just to let people know that 20 bux from each ticket would go to that charity.

Tbh while it's an awesome idea I wouldn't buy a ticket for her purely because to force people to do something against their wishes/will is just wrong. Regardless of the cause I'd be pissed at baing forced to donate money, extra money I may not have, because I'm being forced to, rather than because I want to.

If I want to donate to a cause I will donate.

Good idea, I would go further and have people with collecting buckets on all the doors, with an average of 10,000 people per show just think how much could be collected over a tour.

Thanks for that ladies. After reading your posts, I had to read it through again TWICE (although, to my credit, I hadn't had my morning caffeine yet) to understand that.

I could still see a potential issue with it, but at least it isn't people who have paid for their tickets. You'd want to hope that if you won the tickets, the promoter of the competition would pay the donation on your behalf!

She should include it in the ticket price. Anything like that should be stated in the cost of going. What if people don't have an extra 20 bucks can they just not get in? What if they don't read this memo?

I also think she would fall under another business if she included the donation WITH the ticket price and then took the money herself and donated it to the cause. She would have to be personally involved in charity then and it gets much more complex from there. So for legal reasons, I can understand why she is making the people themselves donate to the cause. That way she is out of the loophole business wise.

I'm curious to everyone's reaction. I think it's a VERY bold stance to take. Kind of an odd cause too. I wonder who ultimately owns SANDS and where the money really goes. I bet her fans won't mind overmuch, besides the ones that may not be able to afford the extra cash?? Adele is revered for having soul. You can hear it in her voice and read it in the lyrics of her music. Curious indeed.
