Oh man!! That's a dream for me, to come back so soon. It seems like it wasn't so long ago that they were here!

I'll definitely have to think about going to the Houston show as well. It's going to be warmer too that time of year.

Nothing has been announced yet for ticket prices or anything have they?
Gotta get that presale info too, haha

Good news!!!

I am so excited, although I don't know much about the venue in Dallas to be honest.

Has anyone been there before? I know it is outdoors.

A friend from work and I are going to try to see if we can get tickets to go.

Two times in less than a year...I have to say I will feel really blessed if I get tickets. :D

It's an OK venue. Reserved seats up front in two levels and lawn at the back.

Whooo hoooooo!!!!!

I really don't like the fact that they are swingin' back through shitty-ass Starplex...I hate that place!!!

*sigh*

Oh well, what can you do.

And for those who haven't been there...reserved seats are better. Lawn seats are just OK. The stupid screens they have are so small there's no point in watching it. There's no difference in the size of the people on stage compared to the size of the people on the screen...it's ridiculous. But if you don't care and you just want to chill under the stars and not worry about seeing the band all that well...then get you a lawn seat.

Oh, and for those seating in the reserved section, make sure you bring a pair of ear plugs. They always like to crank it up to level 10 on the stage due to the fact they have small shitty speakers for the lawn area. So instead of them having a nice set of speakers for those in the back, they would rather blast the people who are sitting in the front.

Thanks texaslovejonny and allegra!

I will tell my friend. We are trying for the closest reserved seats.

I hope the show is OK. My fiiend has never seen them, so I am worried it will not be the grand experience I had in OKC.

I am just getting her into Coldplay.

I was kind of surprised about the venue choice as well, adn that they are not hitting either the BOK center here in TUlsa or the Ford Center in OKC again. Two really great venues.

Perhaps they are trying to keep ticket prices down?

You're welcome!

The show should be OK, it's just the sound quality of Starplex isn't as good as anywhere else. Like I said, just be prepared to be blasted the closer you are to the stage. The wall to the left and right side of the stage is a solid wall of speakers. Of course I discovered that the hard way back in 1989. My hearing was never the same since.

And yeah, it looks like this is the cheaper way to go for both the band and the fans. Ticket prices range from $35 to $97. That ain't bad for the front!!! That's why I want to get as close as possible.

Also since it's in the middle of July, wear very light clothing. The place is a sauna until after the sun goes down. And drink lots of water while you're there. Of course most of the guys choose to drink alcohol, and with the Texas heat, it's not a good mix. So be prepared for the drunks too. It gets pretty wild.

Also note that the show will go on rain or shine. That's why lawn sucks as well. You either fry under the sun or get wet from the rain.

Does anyone know who is sponsoring the presale? Is it Fan club, Best Buy, some credit card? I cannot seem to find out how to access the presale.
Any help would be appreciated!!

Lisa, when I visited ticketmaster.com, the wordage was simply "internet presale" for Friday Feb 13th. Then it mentioned "general sale" on Saturday Feb 14th, so I know what you mean. I was trying to figure this out too.

Usually ticketmaster puts additional wordage, such as "AMEX presale", "Fan club", "Best Buy", etc. I wonder if they are letting everyone participate in the internet presale, and any tickets left would be available at the walk-up windows the next day? I know, it's an odd theory....but we may no know until the morning of. Hmm....

I sent Ticketmaster a question email form, asking about what type of presale is taking place for these tickets. They should respond soon. In the meantime, they offered a generic response, which is pretty much what we already knew:

Pre-sales and promotions are targeted to specific groups of people, such as fan club members or other defined groups of customers. Pre-sale and promotion access is typically controlled by a password, which is specific to each event and is provided to consumers directly through the promoters of the event or the sponsors of the pre-sale, and not Ticketmaster.

All available information regarding pre-sale access and/or promotion codes/passwords is posted on the ticket ordering page of our website for each specific event. Ticketmaster Customer Service Representatives cannot provide passwords, and it is important to point out that your Ticketmaster My Account password is not valid for pre-sale access.


Hopefully they'll respond with more concrete information.....

I finally saw the thread on the Ticket Rush pre-sale.
I have been a member of Ticket Rush for awhile now.
They normally send out their weekly emails on Tuesdays, so I will see if they have a password for Coldplay in Dallas.
I was just confused by the "verbage" on the ticketmaster site.
Thanks for your help!!
