Sad, no one has said anything in here yet!

Well, I'm driving all the way from Eugene, Oregon to San Jose to see this concert. It's only a 9 hour drive, but still I'm really excited!

who else is going to this concert?!

First I was planning on going to Sacramento, canceled. Then I was planing on Oakland, canceled. Now I'm going to try my hardest to get to this show, but with only one show in Northern California I imagine the rush for tickets is going to be a little insane. Heres hoping they add another date that sticks.

its doing my head in. Ticketmaster US also has 18th july because Barnum CIrcus has a run which covers 24th July.

Unless Coldplay are planning to join the circus for the night?

I noticed this on the Ticketmaster website:

Internet Presale Info
Best Buy Reward Zone:
Start:Thu, 06/12/08 10:00 AM PDT
End:Fri, 06/13/08 10:00 PM PDT



Does anyone have the Presale password by any chance? This is only my second Coldplay show, and my mom and I who were at the San Jose show in 2006 had the best time. This time, we are taking my stepdad, so finding 3 good seats on the General Public Onsale date would be difficult. That's why i'm hoping to get in on the presale! :)

Thanks in advance to all who can help! :love:

you have to be a Best Buy Reward Zone member to apply for the presale code, and they only allow you a maximum of 2 tickets.

despite all my bad luck with ticketmaster throughout my life, i actually ended up getting thru with my best buy presale password and scored 2 in section "Floor 1" row 40. Now my question is how may rows are there? am i in the last row or somewhere in the middle? or is it just a dummy row and it's actually standing room general admission like U2 Vertigo was?

Ya, I got Floor 3 Row 34, so I wonder if I'll even be able to see the stage from there. =/

So I totally got screwed and despite having a presale password from Bestbuy, ticketmaster didn't accept it and I couldn't buy :-( If anyone got an extra pair, preferably floor or lowers, that they are looking to get rid of for face, I'd love to know about it. You can PM me. Thanks!

Those are decent seats...in the shark tank it doesnt matter where u sit on the floor the view is good

I didn't come across anything but upper level seats in the pre-sale...so going to bid on tickets on the auction...have no hope for the general sale.

I am also on the floor in section 3 row 38. But there are two sections of 3 according to the floor map, I really hope I'm in the first one! If not, oh well. The floor is bomb as hell.
