Oh hell yes!

I live in Amarillo so the drive shouldn't be too bad.

You should come to this one. The AA Center will look so awesome when it is lit up by all the glowing wristbands!

I'm pretty sure they'll release more dates, there are just too many gaps and cities missing. I'm sure St. Louis will be one of them.

Yay! You guys have great seats! I wish I could participate in the presale, but I don't have an American Express card. :( I'll be buying my tickets on Saturday. Btw I just saw a commerical for the gig on T.V.! They re-used the advertisement for the O2 Arena Priority Ticket Presale and just cut off the end part where they are playing Paradise. :p

Howdy Y'all!!!

Got my tickets yesterday in the pre-sale. I guess they're OK...they're just cheap seats. The best I could get was...

Section 318

Row J

Now the interesting thing was that on my tickets it said ***END STAGE SEATS***.

Does anyone know what that means? My guess is an upper deck stage for the guys??? If so, I think I'm gonna pass out!

And yes, I would love to hook up with the Dallas gang in here too!

Also, my first Coldplay show was at the AAC during Viva as well! Then the following summer I saw them at Starplex and was front row center in the pit! I also was the one that threw the cowboy hat up on stage and Guy put it on!

YEEEEE HAAAAAW!!!

I CAN'T WAIT!!!

Ah, I was at that Starplex gig too, I remember the hat! :D Well done!

Section 318 is across the arena, facing the stage dead-on. And yes, I'm sure us Coldplayers will plan someplace to meet and hang out before the show. That would be fun. June will be here before we know it !

I don't have an AMEX card, so I am waiting until Saturday morning to purchase the ticket(s).

What would be the best section/seating to purchase?

I have to buy on Saturday too and I'm going to aim for the 100's level because I bet the floor will be filled already. It seems sections 121 and 104 are closest to the stage (directly left and right of the stage), so in my opinion, they would be the best. I would try to avoid sections 110-116 because even thought they have a dead center view of the stage, they are also the farthest away. Also, avoid 103-122 as they are behind the stage. Even if you get stuck in the 300's level try to get a section that is close to the stage (directly to the right or left) and you will still have a pretty good view. I have been to several concerts at this venue and I usually get stuck in the 300's, so that is speaking from experience.
