Tories auction off Adele gig tickets to raise £30k for party funds

Tickets were sold for $1,500 a pop at the Conservative Party's Black and White Party fundraiser

Adele gig tickets were among the prizes up for grabs at a Tory party fundraiser this week.

The Conservatives held their annual ‘Black and White Party’ event in central London on Monday night (February 8), with prizes including a day following Zac Goldsmith’s London mayoral campaign.

The Guardian reports that 20 tickets to see Adele live were auctioned off for a grand total of £30,000, what works out as £1,500 a ticket, despite the fact that the singer has voiced her support for the Labour Party in the past.

In 2012, Adele was quoted calling David Cameron a “wally” and describing herself as a “Labour girl through and through”.

Meanwhile, Adele recently denounced US Presidential hopeful Donald Trump’s use of her music at his rallies.

Despite Adele’s best efforts however, reports from Trump’s rally in New Hampshire last week state that the Republican candidate left the stage to the sound of Adele’s ‘Rolling In The Deep’. Prior to addressing the people of Exeter, Adele’s theme from Bond film Skyfall was played.
