    Its going to be a billion dollars per ticket, so you may as well stay off the ticketek website on day of sale and that wat its less clogged for us who can afford it... :p.

    You know, I'd almost certainly consider paying a billion dollars to see Coldplay. Almost.

    The thing about the Visa Pre-Sale is that you have to have a Visa card -- you're not allowed to participate otherwise. So, thank you very much, Dad.

    I am so excited for this. Seriously. I'm pretty much set on doing anything to get to both Melbourne shows.


    Speaking of which, for those who have had previous experience, any advice on how much earlier you'd need to get to Rod Laver to get the best possible GA position?

    Also about the Visa credit card thing - guess it's because Visa got the promoting job :\

    Ooh, very nice! But 8AM? Bummer. I'd be so up for that, but yeah -- school is going to make that a little difficult.

    I figured I'd go reserved seating for the March 3rd show, then GA for the one on the 4th. Get a feel for things.

    Thanks for your input, Cobalt.

    Hah, nice.

    Pre-sale is so close! And for the moment I haven't been able to stop refreshing both the Ticketek page and this thread. Clearly, this announcement/event/whatever has taken priority over everything...
