They will probably have a different setlist :) Or at least some new songs; they are currently playing Life in Technicolor ii at the concerts in the UK.

I think so too. Prospekt March has just been released and they play only 1-3 songs from it on the concerts today. But later in spring and summer i think they will play some new and old together.

I went to the second Stockholm-concert, and don't think they will play the same songs. It's "the summer tour" not "viva la vida tour" :)
but i'm just guessing of course.

I don't know what to do! :\ I want to come here sooo badly!! But I don't know, if i have that much money to come here, because i'm already going to Wembley.

Are the tickets coming on sale on Friday? Have to make the decision by Friday, then.

I know.. I have the same problem with their Bergen consert in Norway. I'm also going to the Wembley show, which will probably be 100000 times better since there will be 90 000 people there(!) and their last consert on that tour. Also I live in Oslo, which means that I have to pay for travel and hotel in Bergen and the consert tickets costs as much as 650 kr + charges (the viva-consert tickets were around 500)... But just to know that they're playing in Norway and I won't be there is frustrating!!!:confused::\:(

Same situation as I have. :\
Except I live in Finland, and the gig is in Sweden. But I feel just the same as you do. I have to pay for travel, hotel and tickets too. But just to know that they're playing in Sweden and I won't be there... :bigcry: but what can I do? :\

I really don't like this stadium and I don't look forward to deal with ticnet again, but still :dance: yay!

Btw, ticnet's website says the tickets go on sale on Thursday, Dec 11!

See you there! :D I hope.

Yeah! It says so... That's too expensive...:( And that's for the standing tickets... The Golden Circle ( costs 1000 NOK!!! Omg! How can they take that much money for a CONSERT???? even though it is Coldplay, of course!

Well, it actually is the Viva la Vida tour. But they'll probably play some of the new songs and hopefully some old ones they haven't played in a while (Shiver!).

I'm going to see them at least once next year, I'd love to go to wembley but that's just too expensive (plane tickets and all :\), but maybe Düsseldorf or Denmark.
The concerts are expensive though! How may € is 595 DKK? :p

595 DKK should be about 77 €. Concerts are expensive these days!

Ian or Jen, this thread is in the wrong section, I think. I can't move it though :confused:
