I'm totally peeved. I live in NJ and work in NYC, but didn't win tickets.

It's very frustrating. I should have given my office address.
Why would they not give tickets to the surrounding states from which people can drive??? :(


Pleased to discover a Coldplay board exists, though! I didn't know until my husband, a lurker, told me about it last week.

I wonder what kind of seats we got!!!!!! :)
This is my next problem exactly! Would they give the contest winners the entire floor? Or maybe the first 4 rows across the entire lower level? I can't imagine they'd stick the "real fans" in the upper deck, but that's how things go today. I honestly don't really care as long as we're all in the building!

have you been trying to get tickets other ways? WPLJ has lots of tickets to give away (of you're on the east coast, ny/nj/ct area)

well the first four rows is highly unlikely... but it would be awesome!!! The Garden is HUGE as you know... so the entire floor would probably be nice... there's 9 sections down there.. so hey... you never never know..... I would love to be near the stage... :nice:

i got so close today... they needed caller 25 and i was 18. i got so frustrated i acutally cried... which is silly now that i think of it, but i guess thats just how bad i want to go. i think it's because its a fan appreciation show, i guess i want to be a part of that because im such a big fan. siiiiiiighhhhhhhhhhh

That happened to me TWICE! Once they were looking for caller 20, and I was 17. The next time they were looking for 25, and I was 21. Very frustrating.

Which number do you call for WPLJ and when do they normally announce the time to call into the show? I am listening to their radio broadcast online right now...

the number is 1-800-321-9755
usually, it's on the half hour. the way you can predict it is they'll go to commercial break and play the commercial about the Coldplay fan appreciation show (it'll start with something like "the WPLJ coldplay countdown begins. in just 4 days, coldplay releases their new album blah blah blah" or something along those lines). when they come back from commercial break, they play a song, and then immediately after that ask you to call.
there's no telling what tickets they're asking you to call for though, just start dialing once the songs over just in case :p

they're also doing the texting thing again this weekend. text "Coldplay" to 68683 as many times as you want. deadline is sunday at midnight, and they choose a winner on monday.

anyway, good luck! it might be lessening my chances to win by doing all of this, but as long as real coldplay fans win i don't mind :)

EDIT: DON'T rely on the online broadcast; it's delayed a good minute or 2, so you'll never get it

MSG Late Winner?

Well, I know this might sound odd, but... I think I just won tickets to Coldplay's show at Madison Square garden! :lol:

Here's the story: A friend of mine recently won tickets, after entering for no real reason. As it turns out, A) He doesn't care too much for Coldplay, and B) He's on some trip on June 23rd... So...

He offered to give me tickets. Woah.

Assuming that he comes through (tickets are still in the mail), I will almost undoubtedly be at the Coldplay show in NYC! So cool!

Granted, transport is hard to arrange: I need to figure out a Greyhound Bus from Dover, DE to NYC in several days for a parent and myself, and then figure out lodging for the night. But details... details...

Excited! :cool:
