    Size really matters for Coldplay


    Coldplay on their way to Sydney, for their biggest tour yet.

    BRITISH band Coldplay are officially stadium rockers. Ending months of speculation, Coldplay will perform at Sydney's Allianz Stadium on November 17.

    Tickets start at $99 and go on sale May 25 at 9am from Ticketek (ticketek.com.au).

    The tour takes in the biggest venues the band has headlined in Australia so far.

    Frontman Chris Martin said band members were itching to return Down Under.

    "It's such a special place for us," Martin told Insider. "These venues are pretty huge, the Aussie crowds are always incredible and we'll be bringing everything we've got. It's going to be big."

    The opening acts have been hand-picked by Coldplay, including Melbourne band the Temper Trap and US band the Pierces, whose album was produced by Coldplay bassist Guy Berryman.

    Coldplay's current tour, in support of No.1 album Mylo Xyloto, has been super-sized to fit into stadiums.

    The band perform several tracks on a catwalk adjacent to the main stage, as well as continuing their concept of a pop-up near the rear of each venue.

    Every member of the audience is given a special LCD wristband when they enter the venue.

    The wristbands, featuring a plastic box with the Coldplay logo, illuminate during the concert and become part of the show's hi-tech lighting display.

    Fans will see pop star Rihanna, who duets with Martin on the new Coldplay single Princess of China, perform on video screens during the concert.

    The concert doubles as a veritable greatest hits affair with Coldplay classics like In My Place, Fix You, The Scientist, Yellow, Viva la Vida, God Put a Smile On Your Face, Clocks, Paradise and Every Teardrop Is A Waterfall featuring in the overseas set lists.

    Last year's single Paradise has become their biggest

    seller to date in Australia, reaching sales of 280,000 (four times platinum).

    Since their 2000 debut Parachutes, Coldplay have sold over 1.2 million copies

    of their five albums in Australia. Coldplay's last tour here was in 2009 supporting their Viva La Vida album,

    although the band made a fleeting visit last year to play the Splendour In The Grass festival.

    The band will only play east coast dates in Australia, which is set to disappoint fans in Adelaide and Perth.

    Their November schedule includes the possibility of second dates in Melbourne, Brisbane and Sydney depending on demand.

    The Australasian tour starts with a show in Auckland on November 10.

    A Coldplay presale for Visa card holders starts on May 17 (see visaentertainment.com. au for full details).

    Thanks Tash!

    This is way too amazing. One day before my birthday, should be about a week after i finish uni annnnd The Temper Trap as the opener!!!!

    I have a question about pre-sale though. On Ticketek it says "Please note that the Visa Entertainment pre-sale for Coldplay is an opportunity to secure tickets prior to the general public and is not a preferential seating service." Does this mean that the tickets are completely random? So even if i'm the first to buy tickets during the pre-sale that i could potentially get terrible seats?

    SUPER SECRET COLDPLAYING.COM MEMBER PRESALE BY YEAR OF REGISTRATION PLEEEASSSEE!!
    14 March 2009: Sound Relief Bushfire Benefit Concert, Sydney Cricket Ground, Sydney.

    I went to have a shower and a guy was obviously having a massage in a room next to where the shower was. I heard this lady say "Oh, what are you doing tonight?" And he said "I'm going to see Coldplay". And she said "Do you like that band?" And he said "Well, I would have preferred U2 but that's the best they've got on offer". CM

    presale tickets go on sale thurs 17 may - between $100.73 for Oval B general admission and silver reserve seating and $151.61 for the Oval A general admission and gold reserve seating

    i called the stadium and they said the stage will be at southern end of ground in front of bays 1 to 6

    can anyone confirm if there will be a 360 degree stage with seats available behind the stage similar to the U2 shows? or will the section behind the stage be unavailable?

    still no concert seating map for the show with price category areas unconfirmed - i assume all lower deck seating in the southern half of the stadium is gold, and all upper decks in entire stadium plus lower decks of northern end are silver seating? or maybe all lower decks in entire stadium are gold? im not sure but if anyone can confirm it would be appreciated

    it would be good to know exactly what sections of the stadium are for each price category for the reserved seating before the tickets go on sale

    this is a map of the stadium...

    Yeah, I need to know too. Sadly, I don't think we will know until the pre sale starts- the same thing happened with Lady Gaga and she had 5 or 6 different ticket prices but the map didn't show which price corresponded with which section. Since it's my first time going to the stadium, I'm just accepting the fact that the likelihood of bad seats is realistic lol

    ahh, pre-sale tomorrow!!! I'll be ringing up ticketek tomorrow but does it matter if i purchase the ticket with a visa card that doesn't have my name on it? It's my aunties so the last name is still correct but i'm just wondering if i may need to buy the tickets under my name....

    Anyways, i can't wait!!! Missing out on a part of a uni lecture and tutorial for this! Fingers crossed i'll get good tickets. The hard decision is whether i should take the risk of not getting the pre-sale tickets if they end up to be not so great and instead wait for general sale....What do you think?

    I don't think it matters, just make sure the addresses are correct. If you're opting to pick up the tickets, she might have to pick them up for you because you need the credit card holder to do that.

    Aah, no clue. I normally do pre sales if I can because I hate stressing over general sales. Sadly, I don't know anyone with a Visa card so I can't do presale tomorrow Good luck though!

    here is the price category map...
    http://premier.ticketek.com.au/shows...SA12&view=vent

    bays 1-7 and 41 behind stage unavailable so no 360 degree stage

    and you can only get pre sale tickets with a Visa credit, debit or prepaid card on the internet, not over the phone

    you can use someone elses card but the card holder will have to pick the tickets up at an outlet($7.20 fee) or choose the email and print ticket option(I think $5.10 fee)
