Same for me, we got the chance to buy tickets really far away and we didn't buy them, that's why I think they're not completely sold out, plus people might have made wrong orders and some tickets will be available in the next days when this first batch will be sorted out

let's be positive :smiley:

@Sandy: I suggest you create an account on ticketmaster ;)

Have tickets for Swap

Hiya,

I have 2 tickets to the Belfast Odyssey gig on the 19th of December, but would really love to swap for either of the Dublin gigs. (Can't believe how fast they sold out! Talk about popular!!)

My tickets are on the South Upper, Row U, Seats 5 & 6 (door 5).
I've never been to the Odyssey, but I've heard it's great. I'm pleased that I have tickets at all, but I would prefer the Dublin gig for travel reasons.

Thanks a million.

I've been coldplay fan for years, they my favourite band by far, last i seen them was in Marley park in 2005. My friend and I queued up from 7 in the morning at Jervis. Although there was only two people ahead of us, if we had not went so early we wouldn't of got tickets. When it came to 9 o'clock I they start selling tickets, only for the first guy to turn around and tell us it was sold out already, they announced second concert there and then, when the second guy was there he turned around and said second concert was selling out fast, luckily when we got up they still had tickets, and we got great seats, block A row 19. Very lucky to get them tickets let alone the seats.

I think the way tickets are sold is wrong, there should be enough tickets put aside for people who get up early and queue up, instead of them all being sold out online and then its a dissapointing and a waste of a morning for those who queue up.

Maybe they might come back next year sometime in the summer in a bigger venue so more people have a chance to see them who miss out this time

Whoa this makes me remember when I queued up at 6 for U2 tickets and when they started selling them the Milan show was already sold out, almost 70.000 tickets gone in like 5 minutes (luckily I have been able to find them by swapping my Rome one).

I'm with you about the wrong way the tickets are sold, not only for people who queue up but also for those who are not even aware of the concert, it was a short notice and prolly many people are on holidays..and the show is in December, plus (almost) no one knew there was a second one, you don't even have to time to understand if you can really go.

Anyway I'm not giving up my hope to find tickets for this show too, even if I have to feed the touts outside the O2, it would be too painful to be in Dublin and not be able to go :(

This is the new seating chart for the o2 Dublin for the Coldplay gigs. I know this is gonna sound incredibly stupid, but I don't really understand how this chart works. I'm trying to figure out where Row 39 on block H is.

Here is the seating chart: http://www.ticketmaster.ie/seatingchart/197033/12092/

I'm sorry for asking such a silly question, as it's probably obvious to everyone but me where Row 39 is, but I just can't figure it out myself! It's the numbers that are throwing me...are they for the rows or the seats or what?

Cheers for any help anyone can offer!

block H is in green. The numbers along the front of the first section of "H" that say 33-37 are row numbers. You will notice the next sections of "H" go beyond the first so the row numbers go higher than 37. The numbers along the back of each section are the seat numbers.

I only just realized that this is the closer for the European tour leg. I was kicking myself for not buying tickets for the 21st instead, as its the grand opening of the O2, but I think this is even better!! :dance:

Oh, this is going to be one fun concert. Only...4 and a half months left?

:dance: yayyyy, let's hope some other people get to chance to come online and see they can buy them.
What seat did you get? cause it seems they were selling all seats close to each other

@polkahard: they're not opening the O2 as Leonard Cohen has a date scheduled there for December 1.

I will have 2 spare tickets for this as I was able to find two tickets for the first night, which is easier for me to get to. The seats are in Block M for Monday the 22nd of December and I'm selling them at cost price if anyone is interested. Just send me a Private Message if you are interested!
