Yes, I got it sent to my home address instead of my dad's business PO Box, which is what I had done in the past.

I've got my standing tickets for the shows on 14 and 15, but not my seated tickets on 11 and 12.

Which is strange because I bought the 11 & 12 tickets a week before the others.

Most of the time, they check for cameras... Mobile phones are still allowed, but if you are caught taking photos or videos using your mobile, they have the authority to tell you to stop.

However, I will definitely try my luck :D

Coldplay Viva La Vida Concert Dates



Grammy Nominated Band to Play 11 Australian Shows

Coldplay is coming back to Australia to perform 11 arena shows only. The band which has a huge fan base here has added an additional four shows to the original schedule.

The tour kicks off on February 27th in Perth and wraps in Sydney on 15th March. Coldplay’s Australian label EMI has reported more than 120,000 tickets were snapped up in record time for the band’s first Australian tour since 2006. And there are still tickets available for those die-hard fans who don’t mind sitting up in the gods.

The last time Coldplay toured Australia in 2006 the band performed ten shows and entertained more than 100,000 fans.

Viva La Vida

The launch of Coldplay’s Australian tour coincided with the release of Viva La Vida - Prospekt’s March edition - a two-disc deluxe package which includes Viva La Vida or Death and All His Friends, plus a brand new EP entitled Prospekt’s March. Prospekt's March includes six recently-completed songs that the band had begun recording during the Viva La Vida sessions and brand new versions of two album tracks – Lost + (featuring Jay-Z) and Lovers in Japan (Osaka Sun mix).

The album Viva La Vida has topped the charts in Australia, the UK and US. Critics have remarked it is the band’s most experimental musical outing to date, but still carries the Coldplay stamp.

Coldplay Nominated for 7 Grammy Awards

Coldplay’s Australian tour is boosted by the announcement the band is in the running for seven Grammy Awards this year -

Record of the Year - Viva La Vida (from Viva La Vida Or Death And All His Friends)
Album of the Year - Viva La Vida Or Death And All His Friends
Song of the Year - Viva La Vida
Best Pop Performance By A Duo Or Group With Vocals - Viva La Vida
Best Rock Performance By A Duo Or Group With Vocals - Violet HIll
Best Rock Song - Violet Hill
Best Rock Album - Viva La Vida Or Death And All His Friends


Chris Martin says Australia is an Exotic Treat

In an interview with Sydney’s Sunday Telegraph Coldplay’s lead singer Chris Martin said the reason they hadn’t toured to Australia for three years was a matter of perfection.

“For us, touring in your country is kind of exotic, so we feel like it’s kind of a treat. So we wait until we feel like we deserve to go to Australia. We don’t like to play in Australia until we’ve perfected our concert.”

Those fans lucky enough to have scored a ticket, and who live within access of the four tour cities – Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane and Perth – will be in for a treat if Martin’s words are any indication.

However, not all Coldplay fans are happy with those in Adelaide snubbed by this tour schedule. Rumours have it that there isn’t a comparable arena venue in Adelaide, although promoter Michael Chugg puts the omission down to a simple case of the band’s availability.
