My friend and I accidentally both bought tickets to this show, so I'm selling two if anyone's interested? These are the better seats that we got as we ended up having to get 3 in a row, not two. To be honest i'm kind of gutted to have to give them up :) Not looking to make a profit, just to sell them. They're silver admission tickets, so I paid $260 for them, seats 719 and 720, row DD, so front row of the upper bowl directly opposite the stage. ie. as good as you're going to get for this price. Let me know if you want them, or you know someone else who might. Ta!

Coldplay Touch Down in New Zealand Ahead of Auckland Shows

Coldplay, have touched down in Auckland ahead of their two New Zealand shows.

They flew in on Tuesday night from Sydney, after playing 11 concerts in Australia, as well as performing a set at one of two Australian Sound Relief concerts, to aid Victorian bushfire and Queensland flood victims.

The last time Coldplay were in New Zealand was at the Big Day Out in 2001. They are in the middle of a world tour for their latest album Viva La Vida. They play at Auckland's Vector Arena on Wednesday and Thursday night.

^^I know a few people going to this one..:p
Well I don't mean no-one at all :lol: That would be slightly embarrassing. I mean from here :D

Maybe you should pop along with them and try and get a ticket...they've been known to give them out to waiting fans. I got one in Florida :idea2:

Just got back now, awesome concert!!!

Roger Dawltrey from the Who in attendance, Chris stuffed up during Postcards from Far Away - apparently put off by Roger being there so started again! A couple of lines from Behind Blue Eyes was included in one of the songs (The Scientist perhaps?). No major surprises to the setlist - Glass of Water, I'm a Believer included and also a few bars of "Four Seasons in One Day".

Also whilst up the back after doing Green Eyes and Will's song, they got the crowd to perfom the first mobile phone mexican wave ever (supposedly) and exclaimed it was for YouTube

Great concert!
