Two of the world's hottest rock bands, Coldplay and Kings of Leon, will play in Melbourne in March with sharply different ticket prices, report the Herald Sun.
Brit band Coldplay and American rockers Kings of Leon will strut their stuff at Rod Laver Arena. Kings of Leon have refused costly tiered pricing, instead setting all tickets at a credit-crunch-friendly $92.
Coldplay have a March 2 show on hold, with final confirmation due shortly. Coldplay's ever-increasing asking price saw a string of local promoters pass on the tour, figuring it too much of a financial risk. The cost will be passed on to fans who will pay about $145 for a ticket.
Three or four Coldplay shows have been earmarked in each state to make a profit from the tour. "It will be interesting to see how it goes," said a tour insider. "That number of shows is ambitious in the current climate."
Coldplay had three shows at Rod Laver Arena on their last Australian tour in 2006.
