can anyone find the floor plan on their website? trying to see where some of the tickets would place you but for some dumb reason it appears not to be up on live nation

ETA: also im glad theres not a huge price hike, i was scared of that but looks very reasonable

What's tickets did You get
Not sure which are best

This is actually my first Coldplay concert, sad I know, and I had no idea which tickets/what area etc to get so just went with seated silver.
That got us L3 38 Row Q.
Hope that helps!

I just got a general admission ticket, I got the Adventure of a Lifetime VIP thing so I'll be in the front section. Hit me up if you're in that section too!!

Decided to go for the early entry tickets in the LiveNation pre-sale. After I pulled myself up off the floor for paying so much money, I'm happy I did!

Selling for cost price (no transaction fees), so please PM me directly if you're interested! :D

EDIT: SOLD

How's security at Etihad? Can I bring my om-d camera with changeable lens (but it's a small lens so it's not that obvious)? What about food and water?

I've only been to Etihad for my graduation ceremony :laugh3: There's a lot of food vendors at the top so I don't imagine they'll be strict about food and water in the stands. Unsure about GA. Rod Laver allows food and drink to be taken down into the standing sections.
