    Coldplay announce New Zealand show

    Coldplay will visit New Zealand following their eleven arena shows in Australia next March, promoter Chugg Entertainment confirmed today. The band will play at Auckland’s Vector Arena on Wednesday 18 March 2009 with tickets going on sale to on Monday 22 December from www.ticketmaster.co.nz. The show will be part of their Viva La Vida world tour, in support of their new album Viva La Vida or Death and All His Friends.

    New Zealand missed out on Coldplay's last world tour, rumoured to be because Auckland lacked a decent venue for them to perform in. They have performed here previously at the 2001 Big Day Out. Their last New Zealand performance was at the Auckland Showgrounds in 2003. Promoter Michael Chugg said: "Finally, fans can take a well deserved deep breath. The wait is over New Zealand. We will be bringing Coldplay’s Viva La Vida tour to Vector Arena next March and it’s going to be huge."

    Tickets to the show go on sale from Ticketmaster on Monday at 9am. However a pre-sale will be offered to Visa card holders from 9am local time on Friday 19 December and run through until 5pm on Saturday 20 December, unless tickets sell out earlier.

    Awesome news, just seen it on the news this evening. I'll be there for sure, first chance to see them live. :)

    They missed us out last time due to no decent venue but now we have the new Vector Arena everyone who goes to Australia is coming here at the same time. VISA pre-sale on Friday.
    As for parking arrangements, when I've been to Vector I tend to park in the Downtown carpark. Bit of a walk I know but at least I know the car is safe, and I've always been with a mate so we grab something to eat at downtown beforehand anyway. What does anyone else do?

    I took the bus into the Vector Arena (For Smashing Pumpkins/QOTSA) - from Onehunga, first time on Public transport for ages, and probably the last time, came out at 11.30 on a Saturday and there were no buses going back! had to take a taxi home . . . now I just park in Parnell and walk down . . public transport here is terrible . . still, have been listing to Viva la Vida all day . . . . . well happy about todays news!

    Yeah public transport is terrible and it would be a nightmare getting back to Howick where I live at that time of night so much better to drive.
    Where did you see that price range? Bit more expensive than I expected. Thought the highest would be roughly $130 or so but it's still not too bad considering how one off this is living here.

    I can maybe afford $99 (juusst), but not $179. And I hate GA. And shitty seats. So let's hope $99 or close to will buy a half decent seat.

    There will probably be a 2nd show. Usually these bands announce one show first but if it sells out really quickly (ie, Red Hot Chili Peppers sold out in minutes or something crazy) then they add a 2nd show the next day or something because of the high demand. I imagine this will get pretty close to selling out on Monday so there should be a 2nd one announced.
