From the website itself:

How do LiveNation.com presales work?

*If the pre-sale is sponsored by the Nokia Ticket Rush, the pre-sale password can be acquired from the Nokia Ticket Rush website. To sign up please visit http://www.ticketrush.com/ and follow the site's directions. The password is changed monthly, so be sure to check back for updates.


The Coldplay pre-sale will be done thru Ticket Rush, it seems

Oh my, I figure that I can travel by train to NC, but coming back is a tad difficult because the trip is 15 hours! I could get on time for the Tampa concert, but I wanted to be early for the one in my city :lol:

Road trip...anyone?

I read on LiveNation.com something between $47-97, but that's for Tampa. Dunno if it varies.

Presale Password

Does anyone know the presale password for the 2009 Charlotte Concert? Or do you know where I could find it? I'd really really really appreciate it :wink3:

I wonder if they'll be upgrading tickets again to those who don't have the best seats. Hmm..

if anyone gets two extra seats in sections 1, 2, or 3 up front, i'll gladly pay you double the price for both of them (unless you're kind enough to sell them to me at face value). ticketrush is not working for me this morning, i'm about to have a nervous breakdown! thanks!!!!!!!!

Just got two (2) tickets in section 5 row M, not too bad! I'm hoping they schedule a stop in Atlanta as I am much closer - Not sure if I'll keep these tickets but I'll definitely post again if I let them go. I much rather see a Coldplayer get them than ebaying or craigslisting them!

^that's the attitude! Yeah, I'm buying a lawn tix tomorrow. I'll save the fighting and panincking of pre-sales for the Tampa show.
