You know, I'd almost certainly consider paying a billion dollars to see Coldplay. Almost.


The thing about the Visa Pre-Sale is that you have to have a Visa card -- you're not allowed to participate otherwise. So, thank you very much, Dad.


I am so excited for this. Seriously. I'm pretty much set on doing anything to get to both Melbourne shows.



Speaking of which, for those who have had previous experience, any advice on how much earlier you'd need to get to Rod Laver to get the best possible GA position?

I've heard from times as early as 8am, but I know twistedCLOCKS here got second row after joining the line at 4pm - the security guard moved her up :smiley:


Ooh, very nice! But 8AM? Bummer. I'd be so up for that, but yeah -- school is going to make that a little difficult.


I figured I'd go reserved seating for the March 3rd show, then GA for the one on the 4th. Get a feel for things.


Thanks for your input, Cobalt.

Hello Coldplay gang. When the pre-sale is over on December 4th will further seats become available? Or could it sell out before the general public ticket release date??


Thanks for any help.

no, the presale is only a small allocation of all the seats. probably about 5-10%. the rest of the tickets go on sale 4 december next week. so don't worry, the presale will probs sell out but heaps of tickets are still available.
