SINGAPORE: British band Coldplay will perform an extra show in Singapore after overwhelming demand for tickets to its first show, organiser Live Nation Lushington confirmed on Thursday (Nov 24).
Tickets to the show on Mar 31 will go on sale on Friday (Nov 25) at 10am. Additional standing tickets – CAT 5 (Standing Pen A) and CAT 6 (Standing Pen B) – will also be released at the same time for the original show on Apr 1.
Members of the public can purchase tickets via www.sportshubtix.sg, the Sports Hub hotline at 3158-7888, all SingPost outlets and at the Sports Hub box office at Kallang Wave Mall.
Each transaction will be limited to four tickets across all categories, Live Nation Lushington said.
Tickets to the band’s A Head Full of Dreams Tour in Singapore were sold out less than two hours after public sale began on Monday. Sports Hub confirmed that demand was the highest it has seen for a National Stadium concert. It said that "at the peak, thousands of tickets were being transacted each minute".
Tickets to the Apr 1 show were priced at between S$78 and S$298, but fans have complained of scalpers reselling tickets for more than double the original price. The organiser said it has since voided tickets being resold by unauthorised sellers.
