    definately going to this show. i looked at our school schedule for next year and although this show is on a monday night we don't have school the next day for some reason. i'm so pumped. even though i got pretty good seats for hartford i want to get even better seats for this show just because i care more about a show in my hometown. ive never seen them in boston either because when i saw them in 06 the closest one was in manchester, NH so thats where i saw them.. ahh im soo excited for this but it's still so far away!!! who else is gunna go??

    It was a festival in Foxboro. I'm not sure if it's even still going since I haven't seen anything about it on XFN's site this year. It was one HELL of a line-up...Live, Coldplay, Lifehouse, Greenday, Aerosmith, The Cult, Tantric, System Of A Down, American Hi-Fi, Dropkick Murphey's, SEvendust, Everlast, The Black CrowsNewfound Glory, Eve 6, STabbing Westward, and Maralyn Manson was the headliner...it sucked because they were running late, so they cut Aerosmith's set to 4 songs so Manson could do his full set. Great day though.

    this is a late response but... holy crap thats a ridiculous line up. yea i've never heard of that festival so i dont know if it's still going. there are never any good festivals around here really. last year we had download fest which had modest mouse, guster and yeah yeah yeahs but thats still not GREAT. but im dying for tickets to go on sale for this show. im so nervous i won't get good seats. i neeeed to have amazing seats for this show.

    I'm not even seeing a Boston date on the Offical Coldplay site anymore.

    Please someone, tell me I'm mistaken!!

    ^Edit^

    **whew**

    I must have been looking in the midst of all the date changes. Can't wait now to see them August 4th!

    ^ I'm not too sure what to make of that. My friend just got himself and I two floor seats (he can get pre-sale tickets through some Best Buy thing?), so I can assure you there ARE floor seats if that's what you're asking...
    I'm freezing and losing my way.

    so... who else ended up getting tickets? i kept getting really crappy seats but eventually i got club seats so i settled for those. this was much harder to get a good seat at than hartford. where is everybody sitting?

    yea well the website was giving me a lot of rubbish and then eventually blocked me... so i used my buddies computer and once it was "sold out" i gave it one last shot and wound up with loge seats in section 15.. so i was pretty pleased... but it was tough.

    Not happy with 'em , but I got tickets.
    Section 301, row 9, seats 3 & 4, nosebleed seats.

    Ticketmaster was not playing nice. I was online waiting and as soon as they were available I put in for tickets. First set up were crap, upper section 320, 1/4 way behind the stage. I'm thinking, WTF, that's best available at a minute into the ticket sales? I know they release tickets in waves, but geesh.

    Next two time I got none available ( I was searching specifically floor and loge). Then the site got wonky, firefox kept saying the connection timed out. I guess ticketmaster servers were loading down.

    Fourth time I actually got in I got some balcony seats decided to try again because they were way at the far end.

    Everytime I tried for a specific level I got " no tickets available". Hell, twice when I clicked best available I was behind the stage.

    So finally, when sec 301 came up I just sighed and bought them. I was getting nervous they would sell out.

    Between the crappy way they handled pre-sale and the changing dates this has been the most stressful concert experience to date.

    I really wish coldplay would have sold tickets on THEIR OWN site..I am so fed up with ticketmaster, as i'm sure everyone else is also. I should have just kept the tickets i originally got in the pre-sale (even though they were not the ones i clicked on, so i got my money back) i wrote about it in the pre-sale discussion post. ANYWAYS, i was finally let back onto the ticketmaster website today bc they blocked my ip on the 15th after trying too many times...sooooo now when i click to search for tickets, it says "the tickets you are looking for are not available", no matter what i put in!


    I don't know what to do now.
    9/29/05 VA beach
    3/02/06 MCI center DC <--chris' b-day concert! 4 rows from the stage-- AMAZING.
    8/04/08 BOSTON -LOGE 1
    5/20/09 VA beach in the pit


    NOTHING ELSE COMPARES.

    i just checked and i'm in section 137 (club) row B. they are OK but i don't care because i'll be on the floor 2 days before this in hartford. so i can't really complain!

    ps. did anyone else notice there is no seperate seating chart for coldplay? on the other concerts (hartford chicago etc) coldplay have their own seating charts that show their different stage setup. but for boston it's just the generic 'endstage' seating chart. do you think boston will still have the cool stage setup?
