    Hmm. That's a new stage isn't it? For one, it's got a roof!

    Does it maybe have something to do with not being able to transport the usual stage(s) over to Australia and New Zealand?

    Coldplay gig: the do's and don'ts
    Last mintue tips and travel advice for concert

    If Coldplay's first New Zealand stadium show is anything like what they've done overseas, the Auckland audience is in for glowing wristbands, lasers, and confetti cannons.

    The mega band play at Mt Smart Stadium on Saturday night as part of their Mylo Xyloto world tour and to ensure the almost 50,000 fans attending behave themselves, organisers have issued a few last minute tips and rules:

    Transport

    There will be no public parking facilities available at the stadium with roads around Mt Smart closed and parking restrictions enforced. However, there is a drop-off/pick-up point on Station Rd. The public have been asked to avail of the extra public transport, which will be put on, for getting to and from the concert.

    For a full list of road closures visit aucklandtransport.govt.nz.

    Travel on trains and buses is included with the ticket to the event. Trains start from Britomart at 4.30pm and run until 90 minutes after the concert ends. Buses depart Quay St for Mt Smart from 4.15pm onwards. For more information, visit maxx.co.nz.

    Conditions of entry

    Firstly, there will be no pass-outs available so once inside the venue, people must remain there - no exceptions.

    Audience members will be searched when they arrive, so it would pay to leave things like video cameras, chilly bins, air horns and alcohol at home.

    Other prohibited items include takeaways, lasers, fireworks, and anything that could be used as a projectile, like glow sticks, balls and containers.

    The weather is forecast to be fine, but in case of rain, bring a jacket and leave the umbrellas at home - they will be confiscated at the gate.

    Ticketholders are allowed to bring small personal cameras, a small amount of home-prepared food and one one-litre, sealed water bottle per person.

    Alcohol will be available on site, but will stop being served at 9.30pm.

    Set times:
    5.30pm - gates open
    6.45pm - The Pierces
    7.30pm - Temper Trap
    9.00pm - Coldplay

    * All times are subject to change without notice. Some last minute tickets are still available from Ticketmaster.

    Playing the drums very badly, and the bass even worse.

    Will the show be on radio anywhere? Will anyone get a high quality audio recording of it?

    I still have a standing ticket available - at this rate I'll have to use it to go in, come out and go back in again to get an extra xyloband....
