Following yesterday's announcement that Coldplay and The Killers are to play a one-off gig at London's O2 Shepherds Bush Empire together in aid of the War Child charity on 18th February, Coldplay.com's batch of 200 tickets were depleted in only 120 seconds (give or take) shortly after 5pm (GMT) today. Here's Anchorman's twitter: "Crikey. Seems our War Child tickets were snapped up in under two minutes. The lottery opens tomorrow."
If you missed out, you can still apply to buy tickets through War Child's lottery system. The opportunity to enter the lottery will begin at 9am, Friday January 30th (GMT) through warchildheroes.com.
Did you manage to get tickets in the official site's pre-sale? A trigger-happy few did and lived to tell the tale... more discussion on the War Child gig and of course Friday's lottery system at the Coldplay forum here [thanks iriden & miumiu]
