I'm hoping to get tickets for this show and the 2nd Manchester one,I've never been to a show at the new arena yet but I'm going there to see Echo and the bunnymen in November.I think it holds about 9000 so it's not quite as big the m.e.n

I figure with the capital of culture thing and this being the first year the arena has been open it might be hard.

On the other hand how many hardcore fans that will get up at 9am on a friday morning can there be in Merseyside. Right? :p

I'm hoping to get tickets for this gig. I went a few weeks ago for another gig and its quite a decent venue. Its a lot smaller than the MEN, which is better imo and it seems pretty good for parking around it too. Its down on the docks so just out of the centre, but on a good bus route I think.

My friend works at the arena and she seems to think it will remain an all seater for Coldplay - Im hoping she's wrong though! :thinking:

All-seating? Eek, I hope not lol.
I can't see it I'm going to see the bunnymen there in November and it's standing,so i would very surprised if it' s seating when all the other arena shows they've played in the Uk over the years have had standing.

You pay when you order them, so you'd better make sure there's enough money on whoever's card your going to be using

Just phoned the box office, its all seating and tickets are £42.50. I definitely won't be going now....I'm not paying what'll end up over £90 for 2 to see Coldplay having to sit down. NO WAY. It's a very bad decision whoever decided this :(

I can't see Liverpool on the list of venues on TicketMaster, so I guess if you're planning on going to the Liverpool gig you can only book on GigsAndTours?

Nobody Will Sit down anyway
Thats not the point though. The annoying thing is that there'll be hardly any really decent seats, especially on the floor which is flat, and I'm a complete short-arse, and the chances of getting them are so small, so why bother at all! I hate having a seating ticket at gigs, I love being as close to the band as possible, and don't mind queuing for hours, and Coldplay aren't even offering the chance, not like any of us on here are gonna get front row seats!!!!
