I have spent a grand total of, drum roll please:drummer:, one dollar! Yes I have been a very bad Coldplay fan and only spent one dollar toward them which actually makes me very sad. I spent this one dollar on Parachutes when my local music store had a clearance sale and I brought home a bunch of different CDs on sale for one dollar of which only Parachutes turned out to be any good and transformed me into a massive Coldplay fan. The rest of their music has come to me courtesy of my local library and therefore has come at no cost to me, but I do plan on buying tickets to their next concert near me and a bunch of the aforementioned overpriced swag so I don't feel too bad.

:uhoh:

 

I better not answer this one

 

:lipsrsealed2:

 

:D

:rolleyes:

 

Oh dear, gulp.

 

4 CDs, live 2003 DVD, 4 extra VLVs for friends/family, VLV vinyl, Prospekt's March, VH vinyl+mag, probably like 7-10 mags (some old ones from ebay), 6 concerts plus airfare to get there, a 7th free concert but with last minute plane ticket, 2 shirts, 2 posters, some singles, 7 guitar tab/ piano sheet music books, 3 tour programs, 3 crappy unauthorized DVD documentaries bought online, Chris Martin bracelets :D, new camera to make better videos :lol:, banners, Ho shoes, new acoustic guitar to play their songs, gosh I don't think I can add all this up. But it's in the thousands of dollars. :dizzy2:

 

All my fault, sorry Lori. :laugh3:

 

LOL Mel! I bet Angie has us all beat ( if you count all her air fare)

 

But hey (shrugs) it's just money and we are talking Coldplay!

 

:grin:

:D

 

Yeah, I was just thinking that Angie would have us all topped. Get in here Angie and wow us with your numbers:lol:

 

Hmmmmmmm How much have I spent on Coldplay? :thinking: I shudder to think. Most likely more than most of you will earn in your lifetime. :laugh3: I'll have to put together a list. God help me. :rolleyes:

I know, that's crazy huh.

 

I used to try and enter contests on the old official board and Debs would send me emails telling me I couldn't because the contest were only open to UK residents due to the fact that "no one's going to travel all the way to the UK just for a concert". Oh Debs! You don't know me at all. :laugh3:

Wow, Angie. $30k. That's amazing!!

Do you save in between tours to have money to do this?

I hope you aren't in debt or tapped out the retirement fund. But it is worth it. :laugh3:

I can't even imagine. If I could afford to do it, I think I would, too, though.

And 7 trips to look for Jonny! How do you know where to look?

 

And to answer the thread question:

I have spent about $2500.00 between tickets (only bought one at face value. The rest I paid alot through a third party to get good seats--and I bought tickets for my Dad and Uncle in 2006). Hotel in NYC, CD's, 1 tour program...I don't have too much memorabilia.

 

I wanted to see them in London at Wembley but I don't think I'll be making it. The economy has affected me slightly and I think I need to save now. I still want to go to London regardless of seeing a gig or not so maybe in two years or so. :)
