Due to overwhelming demand for Coldplay’s concert in Singapore, concert organisers Live Nation Lushington has announced a second show for March 31.
What’s more, additional tickets for the original April 1 show will be released for Standing Pen A and Pen B following the approval to expand the capacity of the area.
Tickets for both shows will be made available tomorrow (Nov 25) from 10am via all Sports Hub ticket channels including its online ticketing page. Other channels include the Sports Hub Tix box office at Kallang Wave Mall and all SingPost outlets.
There will be a limit of 4 tickets per transaction to ensure that as many fans get a chance to purchase tickets.
The news will be a welcomed one to many fans in the region who experienced difficulty in securing tickets to the event due to its significant demand.
During the pre-sale and public sale periods, Sports Hub’s online ticketing page experienced slow loading times and even site crashes, leaving many fans frustrated. Petitions soon surfaced requesting for a second show or for the band to visit in Malaysia and Indonesia.
Touts and scalpers have also plagued the event, hoping to make a quick profit from reselling tickets to fans at exorbitant amounts.
While the tickets were originally priced from S$78 to S$298, tickets quickly surfaced on third party sites like Carousell, viagogo and TicketBis for exorbitant prices, some listing for over S$6,000.
The band has also added Bangkok as a leg to the Asian tour, the third Southeast Asian country in the list along with Singapore and The Philippines.
