Coldplay to put on a festive cracker at the Odyssey

Grammy-award winning rock stars Coldplay are to return to the Odyssey Arena this winter for a Christmas show, the Belfast Telegraph can reveal today.

The world's biggest band, led by Chris Martin will bring the Viva La Vida tour to Belfast on Thursday, December 18 — their only Irish date this year.

Coldplay last performed at the Odyssey Arena in December 2005, in the same month Oasis also played the venue.

The show was considered one of the highlights of the year for Northern Ireland concert-goers who were lucky enough to get their hands on the precious tickets.

Since their formation in 1997 the British four-piece, who describe their music as soft rock, have sold over 20m albums and notched up a string of hit singles including Yellow, In My Place, Speed of Sound, Fix You and the Grammy Award-winning Clocks.

Aw you'll love 'em live! Great, such an atmosphere.

Yup I've seen them 5 times.. :stunned: ... First time in 2001 at Slane - It was U2's homecoming gig after like a million years and I heard that Coldplay were playing - they weren't even the support act lol, RHCP were!! Aww, but so good. Then saw them Odyssey 2002, then at Witnness 2003, Glasgow 2005 and Odyssey 2005 again :laugh4: ... wow that's alot now I see it all written down!

I applied to Brixton as well! That's how dedicated I am :laugh2:....

Well Peter, nice to meet you! I'm Hayley, in case you didn't guess :cool: :D

Anyone know how many people the Odyssey Arena can take? I will be doing an exam when they release the tickets. Basically! Will the tickets sell out quickly?

Hey new people!
Great to see ya :D

http://www.odysseyarena.com/coldplay.html If you check out this site, you should be able to get the info you need....

Ticket price: To be confirmed!
But you could phone Odyssey Box Office on 028 9073 9074 or call Ticketmaster's 24-hr credit card hotline on 0870 243 4455. NB Phone bookings subject to service charge. (www.odysseyarena.com)

The 2005 gig sold out, but not quickly...I don't think so anyway! Best to get in there as soon as you can though.

So people are you gonna go for sitting or standing? i'm gonna chance standing... even though I will need to purchase stilts... but I'd rather be close to front than sitting miles away...!

Venue holds up to 10,000... if my sources are right!

:)

I'm @ QUB too - wotcha studyin?! :D
I know, I was trying to revise last night and I ended up playing all my Coldplay albums and didn't get a bit of work done :smug:

So are there alot of people getting tickets from the Box Office?
I was going to go down myself... but reckoned tickermaster website is the best way to go....
Cos if me and my friend are gonna stand there shouldn't be a problem..
I hope?!
