    For reference: when Coldplay last played the Izod Centre in NJ, I was lucky enough to be upgraded by R#42. The tickets he handed me, which were in the very front row of the floor seats, aren't even onsale to the general public. The first 5-ish rows are usually saved for family/friends/corporations/contest winners etc. I think the same will be true for this tour.

    But I know one day, good things are coming our way

    That means it's floor seats and not GA?!

    Right now it doesn't look like there's going to be GA, but that could change--it has before, anyway.

    And on the Viva tour, R#42 used to go around the nosebleed seats and give front-row tickets to people that looked like big fans that got bad tickets. I knew they did this, so when I saw them doing this at the Izod Centre, I got up all my courage and asked, and he gave them to me. He had four left and we got them...and then we sat in these nice front-row seats and who comes out but Gwyneth, her mother, and two other people...and they saw their seats were taken so they had to go somewhere else on the side

    But I know one day, good things are coming our way

    You HAVE to have an American Express card to participate, obviously. The "preferred seating" is something else, unless you know what that is already and have the proper code, ignore that. There are a specific number of tickets allotted for the Amex presale, so people without Amex, don't worry--the whole gig can't be eaten up just by people with Amex cards.

    The disadvantage to a presale is that only SOME tickets are available, and often not the best ones. When you run a search for tickets on the presale, you're not searching the whole stadium for what's available, you're only searching in a few sections (I think usually 3-4, maybe more) for available tickets, and they're not usually the best/closest sections. So you'll get tickets, but often kind of mediocre ones, whereas if you wait for the general sale, it's much more of a bloodbath with thousands of other people trying for tickets too, but ALL of the arena (minus what's already owned by corporations and the like) is onsale, so you could end up with better/closer seats.

    I have no idea why some of the dates aren't currently on the Ticketmaster presale list, but they might be added in the coming days via Ticketmaster. I want to know too, because the show I want to go to isn't there currently!



    Thank you SO much for this post!

    I'm extremely short and therefore do not really want to be on the floor (especially with chairs in the way and whatnot, ugh). It looks like I'm going to be able to borrow my grandma's amex card so I can participate in the presale..... do you think they'll be selling decent first-tier seating then?

    Btw I agree about prices, come on! It's not even like they have some sort of extravagant stage..... Even Muse's tickets were only $70 or so after fees, and they had to drag their three tower stage across an ocean.....
    The RXP festival tickets were only about $120, and with those I would have been seeing Coldplay, Richard Ashcroft, TDCC, The Kooks, etc. Come on Coldplay, don't make your fans broke.

    No problem! And I'm short as well, so floor seats really are a no-go for me unless I could somehow get to the front, or it's GA and I can assure I can be in the front by waiting all day .

    I just did another Amex presale for Arctic Monkeys and The Black Keys at MSG a few days ago (ANOTHER reason I'm not quite ready to shell out for another gig for awhile) and they had I think 4 sections (maybe more, but I only saw three) up for the presale: two in the 300s, which were not great seats at all, and two in the 100s, directly across from the stage, so it's far, but a dead-on view. I got two tickets in the 100s, the first tier, but I had to buy two separate tickets rather than two together because there were no pairs left by the time I was ready to buy. I just really didn't want to duke it out in the general sale, especially with the prevalence of scalpers these days.

    But I know one day, good things are coming our way

    Yay short people

    Oh I'm so jealous, I wanted to go to that but I didn't catch the sale and now the only tickets left are in the 400s D: Not even worth it ;_;

    Okay thank you, that gives me a better idea of what to do. Since I'm only 15 and therefore have no credit card, I have to rely on my parents and they've only bought tickets twice (Muse, after the majority of people bought tickets and left us in the nosebleeds , and RXP festival which we nailed the presale for ) so I'll have to see- if the seats from presale are decent, we may just take those and be happy. If not, we'll try our best at the general sale lol.

    I don't know whether I should get a ticket for the Chicago or Toronto show or if I should wait. If they add tour dates, will it be between shows that are already scheduled, or will they be added on to the end of the dates already shown. This makes a huge difference because I'm studying abroad next fall and will be leaving in August.

    I've never been to a Coldplay concert before! I'm afraid I'm going to screw up royally if I don't buy a ticket right as the sales open up, but last time they came to Indianapolis, which is a lot closer than any of the other venues.

    I don't know what to do!!!!!!!
