I am definitely going!!!

For those who've never been to the Cynthia Woods Pavillion it's a really nice outdoor concert stage. And there's also a small pit which Im gonna try my best to get tickets for if its not more expensive.

Oh and imo there isnt that much seating so y'all should rush to the presale to get tickets otherwise you're gonna be on the lawn.

Are the pit tickets reserved w/ chairs?? Probably not right? I sat on the floor at the Toyota Center and despite being 5'10" , I still had trouble seeing.

Tickets for the show

Can someone tell me how to get tickets to this show- besides going thru TicketMaster, or the other routine scalps ?
In all of my concerts to see Coldplay, I have yet been able to buy them directly from the group , and at face value. Always have to buy thru a 2nd or 3rd layer , and the usual $80 ticket will cost me upwards of $130.
I am in need of 12 tickets to take the girls in my family (daughters, grand daughters, daughter-in-laws) :D
( Did I mention that Paw-Paw will be paying for all the tickets? :laugh3:)
Seems there should be a way to get tickets so that we can all sit together, or reasonably close to each other. We all love Coldplay, have been several times and wish to keep going to these concerts. We drive from Baton Rouge to Houston to see them so we would like to stay together at the concert.
Someone please advise me the best way to get tickets before the concert is sold out in 3 minutes to the ticket companies that resell them for a scalp. :\
Any help would be appreciated.

If they have a PIT, it will be right in front of the stage and holds I would guess about 100-150 people max. From the seats, views are good throughout as long as some giant isn't in front of you. Can say about the lawn as I don't do lawn. :p

If you are from out of town and need a hotel, try the Drury Inn at the Woodlands. It's really close and a nice hotel.
