CA $35.00 - CA $97.50

Is it outdoors? Capacity?
The Molson Amphitheatre is outdoors...but Sections 100-300 are covered by a roof. Only the 400 Sections and lawn are exposed to the elements. Total capacity [including the lawn] for the venue is around 16 000.

This is so exciting! I can't wait. It's not in NY, but it's the next best thing, and it gives me a good excuse to cross the border and visit an awesome city. :D

Anyone know how presale works?

Do you guys think that they'll add a second date? Molson Amphitheatre holds only a fraction of what the ACC holds, and they sold out there twice! They have 4 days of nothing before and after the concert I have a feeling they'll add a show...I'm hoping!

I generally assume Coldplay will play 2 dates in Toronto.
But nevertheless; THANK GOD they are back playing the Ampitheater! I had become so sick of The ACC.
My favourite of all 6 Coldplay shows I've been to has been there in 2003.
hee is nothing like Coldplay outdoors with my over price Molson Canadan there lol

I'm so excited!! :)
I missed out last time but def going this time around!!
Hmm, will there be pre-sales for this one?
Would the 200s cost around $97.50 or will it be slightly cheaper?

yes, i second or third the presale comment! ahhhhhh I am so excited for this! mostly because I promised my brother (who would never spend any money on a concert bc he's a poor student) that I'd buy him a ticket if they came again and he made the comment that it wouldnt happen anytime soon! I told him today about it and I know that at least a very little bit of him is excited!

yayyyyyy

Does anyone know what happened to the Live Nation page? It seems to have disappeared...all the other shows are there, but not this one. I'm so confused.
