cafc4eva Posted September 2, 2005 Share Posted September 2, 2005 i am sorry if there is another post like this, but here me out I am so pissed! I got rejected yesterday on the pre-sale, even though it said order on the site, but when you click it says sold out. I was up early today to make 110% sure I got the tickets. 9 o clock on the dot I was there, filling out my details on the earls court site. But as soon as I finished about 9:04. A box then came up saying, click ok to order your tickets. So I clicked yes, the joy on my face was amazing. I thought I had them in my grasp. Then the website tells me “your order could not be processed phone this number to check avaiblty” so while trying to get through on the phone, I kept checking the website and they say “order” (again) but when you click it says “sold out” again! So then I checked see tickets, ticketmaster both sold out! Back to earls court and they are sold out. So time to turn to the ticket touts, to my surprise I saw ONE standing ticket for £95. that works out about a £1 a minute to see Coldplay live, even though I will probably right at the back where I cant see frig all anyway. The thing that annoys me is that these ticket touts are almost trebling their money £32.50 to £95 is an outrage. I then went onto a couple of Coldplay message boards to see if anyone had the same problem. Only to find so called “fans” to have bought maximum quotas of tickets just to sell them on to make a profit, with a little smile face next to their message. If I remember rightly, these people where going mad a few months ago when members downloaded the album. Saying it was being “disloyal to Coldplay”. Yeah, I downloaded the album, but then I also bought it when released. It seems as if all (well not all, but some, I apologise to the innocent here) Coldplay fans have become homemade ticket touts. Denying real Coldplay fans the chance to see them live at a great venue. This was going to be my 16th birthday present as my birthday is on the 10th of December. Sweet 16 on the 16th of December was not meant to be. Sorry for the long post, but I would love to hear your views. cheers Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
