Tickets for Coldplay's two Crisis hidden gigs in Liverpool and Newcastle go on sale at 2pm local time today, and a word of warning for scalpers hoping to strike lucky in the tout market. Unfortunately this comes at a cost to the hoardes of Coldplay fans around the world also hoping to get their hands on the tickets...
In order to buy a general sale ticket for either gig your billing address must either be based in Liverpool for the 19th December gig or Newcastle for the 20th December gig OR you can try via the allocations for coldplay.com readers using the code CP4CRISIS at the point of purchase. This allocation is available to all of Coldplay's online fans, wherever in the world they live (we obviously expect these tickets to sell pretty quickly).
However - if you are looking to buy tickets for someone else the cardholder will need to collect tickets from the (as yet unknown) venues and produce the credit card used to make payment and sign a receipt. This is part of the credit card merchant agreement and is in place to protect both Seetickets and the cardholder from potential credit card fraud. This means that according to the terms and conditions, a third party cannot collect the tickets if someone else has paid for them - unless of course you have their card, ID and are a striking resemblence of your buddy. This ticket security situation has also been confirmed by Coldplay's Anchorman via email.
Seetickets have promised more details on the booking processes will appear soon. Ticket discussion on these shows is at the Coldplay forum now (please ensure you are logged in in case the server is busy...)
Alternatively you can bid for tickets in the auction. Auction commences at 2pm on Friday 12th November and lasts for 7 days. Bidders do not need to be based in Liverpool or Newcastle in order to bid. There are two types of auction ticket. Auction tickets or VIP Auction tickets. Auction tickets are for entry to the gig with best seats in the house. VIP auction tickets include early entry, a champagne reception, chance to meet the band, photo opportunity with the band, access to the VIP bar and best seats in the house.
