I am absolutely going to this concert and am going to plan work and vacations accordingly around it. Not listed on LiveNation yet likely due to the pre-sale being two weeks away, but I've got to get friends' summer schedules ASAP.

 

The Home Depot Center is a very interesting (outdoor!) venue consisting of a tennis court, soccer stadium, and track facility. I've been to the tennis court a few times for non-sporting events, but it seems too small for a concert. And the problem with the soccer stadium is that with its sheer size and ability to hold 27,000 people (and that's just seats above the floor), I truly hope Coldplay is ready for their biggest California concert ever if they use it. Methinks the tennis court would be a lot more feasible with the floor stuff (rallies I've been to there were all great).

Coldplay coming to Home Depot Center in July

 

26_coldplay27_large.jpg

 

Having already dazzled at the Forum and Honda Center on its tour behind the acclaimed album Viva la Vida or Death and All His Friends, Coldplay will next invade Home Depot Center in Carson on July 18, with a stop two days before that at the Cricket Wireless Amphitheatre (formerly Coors Amphitheatre) in Chula Vista.

 

If memory serves, the British quartet, heavily favored to rack up several trophies at this Sunday’s Grammy Awards — including quite possibly the prizes for album, record and song of the year — will be the first band to headline at the HDC since Green Day conquered generations young and old with American Idiot. By the way, Chris Martin & Co. also will be spotlighted in a segment on 60 Minutes just before the Grammy telecast on CBS.

 

Tickets for the Carson bash go on sale Feb. 21, while the Cricket show goes up a week earlier, Feb. 23. Stay tuned for any further details.

what is the seating chart for this venue? i need to know and i can't find one since the home depot center has like 3 different arenas and i don't know which one it is..and it's not on live nation or ticketmaster???!!!!!

Click the seating chart drop-down and then click "Concert". So soccer stadium looking very likely.

 

I'm surprised there isn't more hype here for an L.A. concert.

It would be so awesome if they make the Home Depot Center floor General Admission instead! From the looks of it, the floor looks HUUUUUGE, I mean it is where they play soccer afterall and seats 27,000 people at least.

 

If it is General Admission, how early are you guys willing to go?

 

Oh man....I don't even know how early I'd go. The longest I've ever camped for anything was 20 hrs only, I can only imagine!

I'm not gonna lie - the stadium floor sounds amazing. I was turned off by the floor at the last concert and settled with the stands, but considering the dynamics of this venue, I'm seriously gonna try for a stellar floor spot.

 

Right now I'm needing two tickets. More could join in the next week before I get into the massive ticket-sniping brawl with the rest of you on the 20th, but keeping it small will make it easier to get A-grade seats.

Sorry to burst your bubble dudes, but I used to work at this venue, and for concerts they set up seats on the soccer field. So, no general admission I'm afraid, that will be saved for the lawn area.

 

I mean, unless Coldplay pulls something totally different, but from the looks of other shows, it's doubtful. Plus, the field is a HUGE area, and I think it would get a little chaotic if it were GA.

hahah yeah, i knew looking at the seating chart but it was fun to hope and wish!

 

man....if only the US had concerts like Europe or other countries! Majority of their concerts are GA even though the crowds are well over 100,000! Like Glastonbury....they have a crowd of over 180,000 when it is held and it's GA. It looks amazing.....
