Tickets to see Coldplay's much-anticipated Vancouver shows were not impossible to buy online this morning. You just might be sitting alone, reports the Vancouver Sun today.
Despite concerns that the tickets could sell out in minutes, snagged by online hackers, a Vancouver Sun reporter was able to get single tickets to the June 20 and 21 show within minutes of online availability at 10 am.
Although multiple tickets were more difficult to find, at 10:15 it was still possible to reserve at least two seats for the June 21 show. The Vancouver Sun reported today that hackers are able to program a computer to circumvent Ticketmaster's website security and automatically buy tickets.
