Have you seen them before? If not, you´ll enjoy a lot. I saw them in the 2 previous tours (years 2003 & 2005) They were amazing.

Tomorrow I´ll try to get ticket for Barcelona, near where I´m living. But, at least, I´ve got one for Glasgow. Cheers.!

Hi everyone,

I'm looking for two tickets for Coldplay in Glasgow on either night.
It's my little sister's birthday on the 5th December and Coldplay
are her favourite band. She's never been to a live gig before so
I thought that surprising her with Coldplay tickets would be a pretty
good birthday present!

If anyone can help, please get in touch :)

xx

From Ticketmaster.co.uk Customer Services:

Question
Is there a ticket recall for Coldplay at the SECC on 5th and 6th December 2008?


Answer
If you have received an email from Ticketmaster regarding a ticket recall for the Coldplay events at the SECC on 5th and 6th December 2008, we can confirm that this email is legitimate and would ask you to follow the instructions contained therein. Only those customers affected by this issue have been contacted.

Chaos for Coldplay fans as ticket blunder threatens to leave hundreds locked out of Scots gig

HUNDREDS of Coldplay fans will be locked out of their Scottish concerts after a massive ticket mix-up.

Ticketmaster have recalled a batch of 3200 briefs after they were printed on the wrong paper. The gaffe means anyone who bought the tickets from secondary sources, such as eBay, will be denied entry to the concert.

It is estimated that tickets originating from touts and fans who decided to sell them could number more than 800 for the two gigs on December 5 and 6.

Last night, Ticketmaster admitted only fans whose email addresses were registered at the time of sale would be issued with new tickets.

A spokesman said: "It is true that we have announced a recall of tickets, which should be no problem for most fans as there is a long time to go before the concert.

"If people decide to buy tickets from sources such as eBay, it is their own business, but it is something we do not recommend.

"People who buy from other sources lose the rights that other fans are covered by, given that their emails are not registered with us.

"They will therefore not be able to get the replacement tickets sent to them unless they contact the original purchaser and replace the tickets through them."

Despite the chaos, scores of tickets to the gig were selling on eBay yesterday, with some fetching £150 for tickets whose face value is £60.

Buyers had no way of knowing if the tickets will be void by the time of the concert. One disgruntled fan who emailed the Razz said: "Ticketmaster told me the gig will be empty, as most the tickets are bought from auction sites.

"Hundreds will be turned away. This is the biggest gig in Scotland, but only people with registered email addresses will know they have faulty tickets.

"Coldplay will be going nuts when they see the venue empty, as they will not allow anyone in with the tickets they botched up. This is a disgrace by Ticketmaster."

On the Ticketmaster website, a notice advises: "If you have received an email from Ticket master regarding a ticket recall for the Coldplay events at the SECC in Glasgow on December 5 and 6, we can confirm this email is legitimate and would ask you to follow instructions.

"Only customers affected by this issue have been contacted."

The news comes after it emerged that Ticketmaster also had £90,000 worth of tickets and passes for Live at: Loch Lomond and DT Tiesto's Manchester set go missing.

Hi, I want to come to the 6th of December gig but all tickets are sold out, Do you know any secure place to buy two tickets from fans?

I have found some web sites that provide this service but I'm scared about this "ticket problems" thing. I want to be sure of what I'm buying.

Thanks :)

Hi there,

Just wondering if anyone has had tickets reissued from Ticketmaster for the Saturday night. I sent mine back in August and have had an email to acknowledge it. But no new tickets yet! Is this the same for everyone else??

I've still not recieved tickets back from ticket master for the 6th of dec in glasgow.... i'm starting to get really worried about them as its not long to go now. I phoned then last week and they said they are not allowed to reissue the tickets yet due to ticket touts!.... they said that if i haven't recieved them 5 days before i'm to phone them again and i might have to pick them up on the day at the secc (i can imagine the chaos that would be!). Really worried though as these were extra tickets that i bought when the secc website crashed when the tickets were released and i was waiting on the secc phoning back to say they had secured tickets for me. Secc did phone back with 4 rows from the front!!!- so i now have 3 extra tickets that i have no idea when they are going to turn up..... very frustrating. if anyone gets more info on when ticketmaster is going to reissue tickets let me know... also any suggesting where i can sell tickets so close to the event?

try messaging the people earlier in the thread who were looking for tickets. if you're selling them at face-value and they still need them, it would be a good solution all round.
