BBC News reports that the pair attended the 'Reptilia' band's show at the 450-capacity Dingwalls in London. According to XFM, four people must've seen Chris Martin arriving and tried to enter the premises as his bandmate. They said: "Coldplay appear. Jonny Buckland from the band gives his name on the door. 'No mate. You’re the fifth person tonight to give that name.' Chris Martin interjects. 'He IS in Coldplay.'"
The New York band performed under the pseudonym Venison for the show at the 450-capacity venue Dingwalls in London. One fan who paid £100 for a ticket told BBC 6 Music: "I would have paid a lot more for it. I've been listening to The Strokes since their first album and I've never had the opportunity to see them live."
Another who had sold a spare ticket for £200 on eBay added: "I go to a lot of gigs, I don't like ticket touting, but it was an opportunity I couldn't let go. I feel bad for doing it but I'm not going to say no to a hundred quid."
