You can always try StubHub. I use them for everything if I can't get tickets from the initial source.

Honestly, I wouldn't recommend StubHub. The tickets there are so overpriced !

I'm pretty sure you will find 2 tickets in the general sale, @Audie Dancel , and even if not you can always try to buy at face value from a fellow Coldplayer either here on the forum (last year there were loads of tix avalaible from people who couldn't make it etc.) or for example on Twitter there is an account called "@coldplaytix" which lists face vale tickets offered by people.

 

Good luck !

I see some activity on the 2017 Soldier Field thread now, with a few recent posts. I'm jumping to that one now. Hope to chat with you guys there!
<br /><br />Do you live in the Chicago area? I have driven through there and know it's crazy! Any recommendations/advice on traffic? Since the concert falls on a Thursday night. Where exactly is Soldier Field located? Is it in the city or on the outskirts? <br /><br /><br />Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

@coldplay_lover4, I'm replying to your question in the old Chicago thread, hope you see it here.[emoji4]

 

I'm from southwest Michigan, so I come over on the 89/90 Toll Rd straight into the city. If I remember right, it turns into the Dan Ryan expressway after crossing the Skyway. Soldier Field is really easy to get to from there. It's on the far southeast side of the downtown loop near the lake shore and all the museums, so you won't have to go far into the city or deal with too much traffic. (You're coming from Indy, right?) Of course, try to get there a little early to avoid most of the stadium traffic. Set your GPS for Soldier Field or follow the signs and it'll take you right to the parking lots around the stadium. Last summer I parked in the Waldron lot just south of the stadium, and leaving after the concert was surprisingly easy too. All the traffic I was in got directed to highway (40-something?) which led me straight to the main interstate back south out of town. It was literally only about 15 minutes from the time we got in our car to when I was zipping down the highway well out of the city back home.

 

One thing I'll warn you about....last time driving to the stadium, we wanted to eat dinner and use the bathroom somewhere before we got to the stadium in case things were crazy there. We only thought to do this a few exits before the stadium, and got off on some random street that was in a really scary part of town. I had thoughts of that scene in the Vacation movie where they get lost in St. Louis and lose all the hub caps on their car while asking for directions. Anyway, we managed to find a McDonald's a couple miles down that road and got back safely to the highway unscathed. Next time we'll do that much earlier and shoot for a nicer neighborhood.[emoji15]

Yes, I am driving up from Indianapolis. I will make sure we come into town early. The Vacation movie scene.....I know exactly what you are referring too. A few years back I drove up to Chicago for a Coldplay concert at The United Center....got off at the wrong exit and ended up in a bad area. So I understand that. I seen this show in July here locally but we were in an indoor arena, so when I heard they were coming back to Chicagos outdoor stadium I knew I was in......[emoji23][emoji2]

You'll love it in the stadium!! Especially with your floor seats.

 

Before the AHFOD tour, I'd only seen them once for the MX tour at the Palace of Auburn Hills near Detroit, a small-ish (20K seat) indoor arena. Soldier Field blew my mind in comparison. [emoji1] [emoji322]

I have seen them in concert 7 times, this will be my 8th concert. I believe I have seen at least one show from each era. They just continue to get better & better.....[emoji173]️

Wow! I'm so jealous! I was a Coldplay late-bloomer and just got into them in 2012. This will be my 4th concert.

I was introduced to Coldplay in 2003, been hooked ever since. I introduced my daughter to their music when she was 7 years old.....took her to a concert when she was 8. She is now almost 18 & still loves them. [emoji1303]

I got my kids into them too, mostly just in this last year. Especially my daughter who's 8, and my 13yo son a little less-so, but he's not that into music in general. I took them to the Chicago shows in July, my daughter to the Saturday show with another friend of mine, and we sat in the back. That's the show that got majority stormed on and ended early, but we had a great time. My daughter listens to Coldplay cd's in her room every night when she goes to bed, and has about 30 different "favorite" CP songs, like she can't narrow it down. My son really likes Clocks and a few others, but he had to learn a lot of their songs to pick a more obscure one for the audience request. I wasn't sure if he was going to enjoy the concert as much (the Sunday show on the floor) but he was blown away by it! Even though he's usually a moody teenager and not that into music, he spontaneously hugged me several times during the show (!!) and danced around and had a blast. That's a moment all moms should have with their teenage sons. [emoji4] I'm so glad to hear your daughter still likes CP too after all those years. I'm worried my daughter will decide some day that it's not cool to like her mom's music and will rebel with something I can't stand. [emoji12]

Such great stories we have. And can share! I am a Coldplay addict & I will enjoy every moment of my daughter still loving them. We get in our car, roll the windows down and just sing away. I am so glad she still loves them it gives me someone to talk to about them (CP). The concert we attended in July we were way up in the nose bleed seats but loved every minute of it. She was singing & screaming so much I had to tell her to stop screaming.....she didn't listen......needless to say her voice was out for about 3 days!! And that was from the nose bleeds seats.....can you imagine what we will be like on the floor near the stage.?!? [emoji23][emoji173]️[emoji15]

I'm on the floor now, section C2 row 19 right up against the C stage, at least I hope that's the C stage. :-)

 

I upgraded my tickets from section 233 and shelled out some more dough, but it'll be worth it.

Yes! I've never been able to meet a fellow Coldplayer yet. In July I was at the same Saturday show as iamsue, but she was on the floor, and us in the stands, and I couldn't get to the floor to see her. That was the crazy storm show too, and meet ups before or after just didn't work out.

Yeah, that was too bad we couldn't meet up. That night is still so surreal and a blur for me. I do hohpe you both can meet. IfI change my mind and get a ticket, I will let you know here for sure. Your stories about your kids are wonderfufl!

You might have to come to me....the security guards probably won't let me into your B section with my C section ticket. They were really strict about checking tickets on the floor last time to keep people from creeping up. Lol

I've got tickets to this show, and I'm really hoping the weather is better this time around. Went to the Saturday show back in July that got rain-shortened (like many others). Can't wait to see the full show! I was mostly bummed we missed out on Up&Up due to the storm.

 

Last go-around I had tickets in the 300 level in the opposite endzone. This time, I have tickets in the 300 level at about midfield, so they should be better. Couldn't afford the floor tickets, but Coldplay shows are fun no matter where your seats are. I only wish I didn't have to wait so long for the show!
