Couldn’t get your hands on a “A Head Full Of Dreams Tour” ticket? Fret not, because Coldplay has heard your frustrations. As Straits Times reported, the British band are well aware of scalpers trying to profit from the resale of tickets to their upcoming concert in Singapore.
Though Live Nation Lushington has taken (unspecified) steps to void some of the tickets re-sold online at inflated prices (up to RM24k, mind you), they are also planning to release additional tickets once they finalise layout and logistic issues on Thursday (24th November). The quantity of the extra ticket has yet to be confirmed.
Tickets, ranging from SGD78 (RM240) to SGD298 (RM914), to the concert were sold in 3 batches – 17th November (Citibank cardholders); 20th November (Live Nation Lushington’s mailing list subscribers); and 21st November (public). It is estimated that about 40,000 tickets have been sold so far.
The organiser also added that Coldplay had requested that the organiser keep the ticket prices low. “Our ticket prices were originally a little bit higher and they said no, move that price. They (Coldplay) really care,” said Live Nation Lushington managing director.
Meanwhile in Malaysia, the Chris Martin-fronted band’s Malaysian Facebook fan page, Coldplay Malaysia, have created a petition, titled “Malaysia Wants Coldplay”, in hopes that local organisers would consider bringing Coldplay into the country. So far, the petition has gathered over 2,200 signatures.
We’re not sure if the petition will work but A for effort, right? :) To sign, click here.
Coldplay will be performing on 1st April at the National Stadium, Singapore.
