More Coldplay tickets to go on sale on Thursday from 1pm

SINGAPORE - There's good news for Coldplay fans who missed out on tickets to the British band's sold-out concerts at National Stadium on Friday (March 31) and Saturday.

More tickets will go on sale on Thursday (March30) at 1pm. These are for seats offering a restricted side view of the stage and have been made available after the concerts' production and staging details were finalised.

The tickets cost $78 (for Sections 617 and 634), $168 (for sections 417, 418, 433 & 434) and $268 (for sections 117 & 134) and will only be available via Sports Hub Tix website (www.sportshubtix.sg) and hotline (65) 3158-7888.

According to organisers Live Nation Lushington, only a "limited" number of these additional tickets will be on sale. Unlike the previous batches of tickets,these will not be available at the stadium's box office or SingPost outlets. Buyers can buy a maximum of four tickets per transaction.

The 100,000 tickets initially available for both shows sold out quickly after they went on sale last November, leading to scalpers re-selling them at inflated prices. Live Nation Lushington has said it will void tickets re-sold through the scalpers.

The police have also arrested two men after several reports were made by Coldplay fans who paid unauthorised re-sellers on online marketplace Carousell but did not receive the tickets.
