Do you know if they are going to have a pre sale for the TO show. I got tickets for their last show when they went on sale to the general public and the seats weren't what I wanted.

I've been wondering too about a pre-sale for TO's show. Also, is Ticketmaster selling the tickets? If I go to Livenation and click on another show (to see where it leads to), they either lead to ticketmaster or the arena's website. Plus, they don't have Coldplay listed as coming soon...and I don't think it's because the sales is in June because they have other bands listed with sales in June. >___<

I noticed the same thing.
When I looked on ticketmaster it's not even listed. When you search Coldplay they only have a few shows listed.

I know! I just hope they show Toronto's date soon, since the sales are on the 14th! Where else should we look for tickets? I'm skeptic of using other websites then ticketmaster.

Do you think the Best Buy membership card applies to Canadian shows? I hope not.

Just a heads up. I found out this morning that BestBuy does have a presale starting June 12th at 10am.

Is anyone willing to spare a presale password to a hardcore fan of Coldplay's...that hasn't been to a concert yet because I'm super slow on getting tickets on ticketmaster!? (they came on my birthday, the 23rd on their 2006 tour...never got tickets) :D

I think you can still sign up. Codes aren't being given away untill the 5th at 8 am.
Go to bestbuy.ca and click on rewards zone and there's a thing there about coldplay presale passwords.

Does anyone know of a good site to buy these tickets off of since I live in the US? I noticed they don't have the date listed on ticketmaster, and I thought that maybe that was because I'm in the US. Also I checked the page that is linked to the Coldplay homepage and it had a different date for Toronto (July, I think). Good thing we still have over a week until they go on sale! (I can't use the BestBuy thing because I'm buying more than 2 tickets... :( )

What a pain! If it's July 30th I can't go!!! October would have been so much better (I go to school in western NY, so Toronto is not terribly far away from there, plus it would have been right before my birthday)!

:( :( :( :(

I was at school so I got someone to get it for me and they said they had alot of trouble. But in the end I got confirmation that the code will be emailed to me either the 9th or 10th.

Did you get the confirmation in an email or on the actual bestbuy page? :S
Did they really change the date to July 30th...oh man, I won't be able to see them then!! I won't be in the country in July. Great. Just great. I seriously have bad luck. :(

Why is it just one concert for Toronto though...I wonder what caused the sudden change and to move up it up to July. Erugh.
