I'm stoked!

i just purchased my ticket for the Seattle concert in April! i'll be in the one of the first 10 rows (fingers crossed for the 1st row) and on the side Guy plays (fingers crossed that they don't pick that concert to switch Guy and Jonny lol!). i picked that side just so i could get the clearest and closest spot to my favorite band member *blush*.

to all of you out there who have been to Coldplay concerts, please, please give me some tips on making my experience as great as possible! i know it'll be aweosme just being there, but i have NEVER been to a concert in my life (i'm in my thirties and maybe just waiting for the best band to come along :D) and i really need some tips. i can drive the entire island of Ireland alone but have no clue what the best things to do at a concert are lol! should i line up early? can fans ever get an autograph from the band or one of the members? if so how and when do they do this or does it just depend on the concert, etc?

i know April is 4 months away, but i'm one of those people who likes to plan ahead and have an idea of what to expect. thanks for any and all help :)

"How did you get tickets? The presale starts Monday....... "

i had to go straight to the Arena's online page---originally i was just looking to see what kind of seating the arena has and then found that i could actually buy earlier than what the Coldplay.com email said. But just as a warning, i had to pay an arm and a leg for the ticket (possibly because of it being up front and possibly because it was a single ticket--i guess a lot of people go with friends but i don't know anyone who can go with me). it's possible too that i could get a front row seat if i waited till the 17th (i don't have an AMEX so can't buy during the presale) but i didn't want to take any chances and figured all the floor seats would be gone after the pre-sale, so i checked with the arena.

I don't know, that seems a bit odd. Usually no tickets are sold until the presale, otherwise it defeats the purpose of having an exclusive presale. This may sound like a stupid question, but are you sure it wasn't some sort of a scam? :uhoh:

the arena would have their own tickets to sell and/or people to sell them for them and this is the case. i talked to someone about this before and she's gone to lots of concerts and found that there are many ticket agencies (for lack of a better word) that sell tickets for a specific concert, and then the arena itself--which makes sense. if LiveNation and TicketMaster (who Coldplay use to sell and distribute their products) have their own presale, it makes sense that the arena could/would have its own presale as well. i checked everything out and it's legit.

JackColdplay: is that a statement or a question?

turns out i purchased through a secondary seller. hope they are honorable and have integrity and deliver an authentic ticket as promised or i'll slap them with a law suit for false advertisement and anything else i can think of for taking advantage of unsuspecting first time concert goers like me.

since reading your comment and the other one, my enthusiasim has tanked and i am panicked, worried, angry, and very prickly because people are asking about my ticket rather than reading on into the post and getting to the "meat" and actual question of my post which is: does anyone have any suggestions for making my concert experience a brilliant one? i know just being there will be more than awesome, but should i line up early, should i take water, do the band members ever sign autographs before or after a concert and if so/or not how do i increase my chance of getting an autograph, etc. i'm going alone so any information would be helpful. thanks.

I haven't seen floor seats either. So far, the pre-sale tickets seem to be reasonably placed for the $125 price range in the lower level, but the $60 tickets are far, far away! I don't know how i feel about this pre-sale. For a group of 11 people, it's hard to find tickets together at this time.

Edit: Just saw floor seats (BB) with the promo code 8005253355

I got front row aisle in the section right next to the stage!! Best seats ever!! :awesome:

I did see floor, but they were row 20 something. I personally like the elevated side view right next to the stage unless I somehow got the first few rows of the floor (never happens in my experience).

I got tickets too, yay! Not nearly as close as I wanted but close enough to catch some butterflies :) This, after Ticketmaster blocked me yesterday for doing too many searches :rolleyes:

Does anyone know what the VIP packages coming out tomorrow might have?

Anyone realize that there's no X-stage in the seating chart? UGH. I was looking forward to the X-stage performances :angry:

They updated the seating chart on Ticketmaster and that shows the X-stage, so it's still there!

assuming i didn't get scammed (as one person pointed out might have happened), my ticket is on its way via FedEx, purchased it on the 10th (two days before AMEX presale: somehow i just don't think that's fair to do a presale for people with AMEX cards and leave the rest of us with the seats farther back and not as good which is why i purchased my ticket two days early--not realizing it was a secondary seller) and it's between rows 1-10 on the floor, AA side. i have to be on Guy's side or i just won't go...

**just re-read your question and i didn't get mine VIA the presale but rather BEFORE the presale. here's to hoping the people i went through are trustworthy and i'll be at the concert as planned :) i'd hate to fly 3 hours down to Seattle and then not be able to attend.

Is there any way to make sure my ticket is authentic? it didn't ship till 5 days after the AMEX presale started and should be here by this Tuesday.
