I'm going with 4 of my friends. None of which have seen Coldplay live.

Section 303, Row J.

This will be my second time seeing them. I can't wait.

I have 4 tickets I need to sell to the Des Moines, IA show... because some family members can no longer attend. They are excellent seats very close to the stage! Two tickets are seated together, and the other two are together as well:
1st set: Section 103, Row H
2nd set: Section 103, Row R
Go to http://mediacache.eventbooking.com/61632_d4.jpg to see the seat locations.

PM me if interested.

^ I was wondering the same thing. I don't know as if many people going to this show are actually from IA. I myself am traveling about 4 hours to attend because its the closest arena show to my area. Then gonna take the short trip to Omaha the next night. Should be a nice little mini vacation with a Coldplay fix.

I think there are probably a number of Iowans going, but obviously not on this board. Glad to see you're making the trip, though! What about Alpine Valley? I've been there a number of times (actually sawre Coldplay on the last tour there).

I'll be there! I live in Des Moines... so only about a 10 minute trip. It'll be nice to not have to drive hours to the closest Coldplay show for once. Then a roadtrip to Omaha to make for a great concert weekend. :)

I have a quick question/request for those going to this show...would anyone be interested in getting me a bunch of the leftrightleftright albums that are being given away at the end of the show? a bunch of friends and myself really would like the album, and I've got some friends outside of the US that would really really like a copy. I know you can download it, but we all want hard copies. If anyone wants to help me out, it'd be greatly appreciated and I would pay for the shipping of the cds to me and if anyone can get me a box of cds I'll pay $50 plus the cost of shipping (like through paypal or ebay or something). my friends and I really really really want a cd, (as do a bunch of my friends' friends that live in other countries). I would be very very greatful. Let me know if you can help me out.

Thanks guys! Have a great time at the show!!!

I'm not sure if anyone would be able to get a 'box' of them, being as they're being given away for free. And how many are we talking here? I would be willing to do what I could, if I knew they weren't going to be sold on eBay. It just sounds slightly shady to me is all.
