Tickets for the Singapore leg of Coldplay’s A Head Full of Dreams tour have been fully sold out following its public sale earlier this morning.
According to organisers Live Nation Lushington, talks are now ongoing with Coldplay’s production team to explore an avenue of opening up more inventory to cope with the demand.
The concert organisers added that any announcement on addition captain will be made by November 24 (Thurs) via their official Facebook and Twitter pages.
About 40,000 tickets were made available over three sale cycles, all of which experienced a surge of demand for tickets.
The first pre-sale took place on November 17 for Citi cardmembers, and was intended to last three days. The 12,000 allocated seats were sold out within an hour however. The same outcome happened on November 20 when another 12,000 pre-sale tickets went on sale for Live Nation Lushington subscribers.
This morning, 14,000 tickets were allocated for the public and were snapped up in under two hours, with many hopefuls experiencing long loading times and site crashes on the online ticketing page.
Additionally, a surge of secondary tickets are being sold on marketplaces such as Carousell and viagogo for exorbitant prices, some even amounting to over $1,000. Organisers have been very vocal against the resale of tickets and have stressed that ticket holders of secondary markets will be banned from entering the premises.
In a Facebook post on the event page, the organisers wrote, “We would like to urge all fans to refrain from purchasing tickets through unauthorised resellers as these may have already been voided and holders will be denied access to venue.”
