    COLDPLAY have announced a third Melbourne concert - before the first two have even gone on sale.

    The British band will now perform at Rod Laver Arena on March 3, 4 and 5 next year.

    All tickets go on sale at 9am tomorrow from Ticketek, priced between $120 and $140.

    Promoter Michael Chugg said seeing the intense demand from an early pre-sale of selected tickets prompted the multiple shows.

    "We decided that we needed to add these extra shows now so that the fans know there will be tickets available for them tomorrow," Chugg said.

    This'll be my first trip to Rod Laver, what's it like as a venue, pretty good viewing all round? The Adelaide Ent Centre can be a ratshit in the seated area's due to the corporate boxes that are beneath them, I'm hoping laver will be better.

    Got my tickets -- gold standing, too! Super, super happy. Got tickets to all three shows.

    I love Rod Laver, and being fairly small in size, I would say it's good viewing all 'round. Back in 2006, I was literally in the last row, right up the top for Coldplay, and the view was still pretty fantastic.

    That's great, foreverdizzy. Are you all fans?

    Glad to hear that the view from the lower section is great -- not that I really doubted it. Rod Laver is a great little venue.

    So glad to hear that the view from the Lower Section is great (though, I didn't doubt it!). And I agree, Rod Laver is a great little venue!



    yes we all love CP!

    there is no way i could have gotten tix for only a couple of us w/o someone being extremely disappointed....so, we're all going.

    i'm just hoping the crowd will be into it on the night...last time we saw them in 2006, Chris had to stop and encourage everyone to get up on their feet.
    i was really glad he did that b/c when they came out at first, i naturally stood up only to be told to sit down!
    needless to say after he did that, i felt rather smug when i looked at the peeps that had told me to sit down in the first place.

    hopefully that doesn't happen this time.

    we all can't wait!

    Yeah, I remember that. I can't stand it when people ask that you sit down, especially if you're seeing your favourite band. You've paid to be there, too -- I think that entitles you to the right to watch the show however you'd want. Be that sitting, standing or jumping around.

    Feeling pretty certain this will be a pretty great one.

    Massively excited! Seriously YouTube obsessed at the moment -- can't stop watching live videos.

    Only eighteen days until the first concert and even that is feeling like forever away right now.
