I will (hopefully!) be there too! Driving from Champaign/Urbana if anyone wants to carpool. Not even sure who I'll drag with me this time... Am planning to just buy a couple of tickets and worry about who gets the other one once July rolls around.

So exciting! :dance:

Maybe some of us could go together..? >.> I've only made one friend since moving to Champaign and she doesn't want to go. :/ *sigh*

I'm in Mountain Home. North Central AR. We're about 15-20 miles from the MO border.
It'll only be about a 3 hour drive for us! We saw them in KC in Nov and that was a 5 hr trip but it was well worth it!

I really hope I can go!!!!!!!!! It will be between a 4 1/2 to 7 hour drive for me. Maybe longer b/c I have no idea where anything is there! I haven't been any where else in MO besides KC. And I missed the concert that they had there last Nov. :( So this would be my first Coldplay concert!!!!!!!!!!

Live Nation debuts ticket system for Coldplay

While the proposed merger of Ticketmaster Entertainment Inc. and concert promoter Live Nation Inc. hasn't yet affected how the public will buy tickets, Live Nation has announced a new ticketing system that will replace Ticketmaster for Verizon Wireless Amphitheater concerts.

Tickets to the July 24 Coldplay concert at Verizon go on sale at 10 a.m. Saturday, and with that comes the first run of the new system. Ticketmaster can still be used for other venues, including Scottrade Center and the Pageant.

Here are the options for buying tickets for Verizon Wireless Amphitheater.

— livenation.com: It's the only site authorized to sell tickets for Verizon.

— Verizon Wireless Amphitheater box office: 11 a.m.-6 p.m. Monday-Friday and 10 a.m.-2 p.m. Saturday. There is no service charge at the box office during the first week of sales.

— By phone: 1-877-598-8703.

— Select Blockbuster stores: 3860 Vogel Road in Arnold, 12161 Manchester Road in Des Peres, 15957 Manchester Road in Ellisville and 6400 Gravois Avenue in St. Louis. Additional locations will be added.

Coldplay tickets are $41, $85.50 and $103.50, and parking is included in ticket prices at Verizon unless otherwise stated.

I got my tix!!!!!! Not great ones, but at least I'll be there!
Which did you get?

I tried both the radio and ticketrush presale right at 10am, and I never got an option in the lower sections. After trying about thirty times, I settled for row two of the upper middle section. Since it's a pretty small venue, that's still very good, but not quite as good as I was hoping.

I had the exact same problem!!! Very frustrating!

I'm in the Upper middle, row JJ. 2 seats close to the aisle 5. you did better than I did!

I checked again just a bit ago and there were some down in row T on the left side. Closer to the front, but all the way to the edge of the venue.

Row FF upper left center, here. If I'd waited half an hour I could have gotten U in the lower Right section. :\ Oh, well.

... if this is an outdoor venue how are they going to drop the butterflies during Lovers in Japan?!

Sara, where are your seats?

Row PP :(
And I bought them at 10:05!!

Could it be possible that they didn't open up all of the tickets for the presale? I was thinking about getting on again tomorrow when the reg. sale opens up and seeing if I can get anything better.

It's a possibility. I'm afraid, though, that the lower levels have all gone to ticket re-salers. I just checked stub-hub and they have a ton of seats in the lower level for $700+. Even row Y, the tickets I got, are $400ish.

I've pretty much conceded the fact that unless I'm selected for a ticket upgrade or am able to see Coldplay at a festival, I'll never get in the first set of seats.

Yeah I'm starting to get that feeling too. At least I'm alot closer this time than I as last time. When I saw them in Nov. I was about as far back as you could get.
I"m still going to get on tomorrow and see what happens. Maybe I'll get lucky!

What part of AR are you from?
