since this date didn't have a presale at all, am i right to assume that the tickets will be better for the general sale tomorrow than for the 29th?

Got Loge 2, Row 16 tickets!

I am baffled by how anyone can get floor tickets, I searched at 10am on the dot and the best I found were in Loge 2. Should I have searched only for Floor seats instead of Best Available? I need to work on my Ticketmaster skills...

I was going to wait to see if they announced a Hartford or NYC show before I bought tickets to their show in Boston, but out of curiosity, I looked to see what kind of seats I could get when they went on sale. First I got Section 9, then Section 4. I tried again a little while later and got floor seats in Section E, row 13. I couldn't pass those up :)

I'm going to see them in Atlanta earlier in the month, too. Yay!

I pulled up a floor seat in section F, but my friends don't want to go to both shows. I'm tempted to get it, but hate doing concerts on my own :embarrassed: Decisions, decisions.

Did you end up getting it? I've seen Coldplay by myself once... I couldn't get anyone to come with me. It sucked being alone but at the same time, it was worth it because I got a third row seat. Plus, the people next to me were super friendly.





I know I said earlier that I've got Section E row 13, but I just checked my order and now it says Section E, row 4... ?????!!!!!!! ...I'm not complaining though.

AND for those of you who don't know, there's a seat finder thing on the TD Garden website that shows you exactly where your seats are, and what the view will be like from your seats.

Hmmm.. I'm a little confused about the tickets and the seating. On Ticketmaster, they have the "endstage" seating chart. Section A, B, and C should only have rows 1-7 according to TD Garden's Endstage seating chart, but I'm seeing scalpers selling tickets for "Floor A Row 25" and "Floor C Row 20"... I really hope Ticketmaster didn't dupe us!

And yes, I know, I'm obsessing about this show already and we've got 7 months to go. Haha.

No, I didn't get them, but I'm still considering it.

Lucky kmfm listener Harry Blackley wins tickets to see Coldplay in Boston

A lucky kmfm listener has hit the big time by winning tickets to see Coldplay in Boston.

Harry Blackley, from Sevenoaks, won the top prize on Andy Walker's Drivetime show this afternoon. The warehouse worker will see Coldplay at the TD Gardens in the American city this July. The prize includes flying with Virgin Atlantic, staying at the award-winning Omni Parker House in historic Boston for four nights with $500 spending money - and two passes to see Coldplay.

Harry, of Shenden Close, told Andy he will probably take his Dad. He said: "This isn't a joke is it? Oh my God. Thank you very much!"

Asked who he will be taking with him, Harry said: "My Dad's never been to America, he'd love to go. And he loves Coldplay, so possibly my Dad."

And in a competition twist, Andy revealed on air he and the Drivetime show will be joining the pair in Boston. For two weeks, kmfm gave listeners the chance to qualify for the Coldplay draw.

Listeners were simply asked to listen out for the Live in Boston Coldplay track, call in and get into the draw - before Harry was chosen at random. kmfm promises even bigger competitions and chances to win heading towards the summer.

Hi guys !!

As i'll be in Boston for the summer i'll be seeing Coldplay ! Have you planned to meet up before/after the show ?
I'm going to be CLB113 RowCn could'nt find better when I placed my order.

AyannaD are you going to do both gigs ? I've just seen them in Nice and now i'm thinking "why not doing both Boston gigs ?" I mean, i'll be in Boston so... Very tempting !

I saw Coldplay both shows in Washington D.C on July 8th and 9th! I had great seats both shows but I'm traveling up to see them in Boston because I want to test my chances of meeting the band after the concert! I'll have nose bleed seats but since I'll be there for 2 days, may just consider getting tickets for both shows. Excited to see the band for the first time outside of D.C!

I'm staying after the show on the 30th.... hopefully they don't do a runner. It's only my second time being at that arena, the last time was in '08 so I barely remember the setup... so I'll need help figuring out where to go after the show.

Hopefully we'll all have good luck after traveling so far!
