All four-day Coldplay Singapore concert tickets sold out in six hours, organiser add extra date on Jan 30th

SINGAPORE — The renowned band Coldplay has announced earlier their plans to perform in Singapore on January 23, 24, 26, and 27, 2024 as part of their “Music of the Spheres World Tour.”

The presale for the Singapore concerts took place on Monday (19 June), from 10 am to 11:59 pm.

Despite an estimated total of 200,000 tickets available across the four days, a number of passionate Coldplay fans in Singapore are still facing challenges in securing their coveted tickets.

Due to the overwhelming demand, many netizens reported being assigned a considerably long queue. The organizers even extended the queue duration into the afternoon due to the high traffic on their website.

All four-day tickets sold out within six hours

At approximately 4:17 pm on Monday, Live Nation SG posted an update on their Facebook page confirming the complete sold-out of tickets for all the concert dates.

“Due to incredible demand, one more date has been added at Singapore National Stadium on Jan. 30.”

For those Coldplay fans who were unable to secure tickets during the initial sale, they can try their luck during the ticket sale on Ticketmaster, which is scheduled to take place on Tuesday, June 20, at 10 am.

Estimated over 1 million netizens trying to purchase Coldplay tickets

Around 10 am in the morning, some netizens shared their queue position, with one being placed at number 462,472, indicating a significant surge in ticketing activity on the platform.

As per Ticketmaster’s FAQ, individuals who access the ticketing link are assigned a random queue number. The purpose of this queue is to effectively manage the flow of traffic into the ticketing platform while also detecting and reducing access by bots.

It is estimated that over 1 million netizens were waiting in virtual queues on Monday, all eagerly attempting to secure their prized Coldplay tickets!

One netizen went as far as sharing a screenshot of the virtual queue on Ticketmaster, the platform used by netizens for booking and transaction purposes when purchasing Coldplay tickets. She was assigned queue number 1,036,394.

Likewise, another netizen received a queue number of 1,006,967 at around 1:30 pm in the afternoon.

Coldplay “Asia”

In a sarcastic tone, one netizen remarked that perhaps this event should be called “Coldplay Asia” instead of just a Coldplay Singapore concert, as netizens from various Southeast Asian countries seemed to be participating in this frenzy to grab tickets.

However, amidst the frenzy, some netizens shared their excitement at successfully completing their payment and purchasing their concert tickets.

They expressed that the entire process went smoothly, with some spending less than 30 minutes in the queue.

Ticket scalpers emerged despite the organiser’s warning

The Coldplay Singapore concert is an unprecedented event, as it marks the first time ever that a band will perform up to five consecutive dates at Singapore’s prestigious National Stadium during a single tour.

In addition to their highly anticipated shows in Singapore, Coldplay had previously confirmed performances in Tokyo, Kaohsiung, Jakarta, Perth, and Kuala Lumpur in November 2023, showcasing the band’s immense popularity across the region.

Once again, the organizers are strongly cautioning against purchasing tickets from unauthorized sellers or third-party websites.

Buying tickets through these non-authorized channels poses a significant risk, as the validity of the tickets cannot be guaranteed, and refunds will not be possible.

Unfortunately, reports have already surfaced about alleged scalpers taking advantage of the high demand.

These individuals have been spotted on social media platforms, advertising Coldplay tickets for sale.

One particular scalper claims to possess six general standing area tickets but has not disclosed the asking price, inviting potential buyers to make inquiries.

Furthermore, a netizen has come forward stating that he accidentally purchased tickets for the wrong date and are now intending to sell it:

A quick check on Carousell Singapore reveals multiple advertisements offering Coldplay Singapore concert tickets on the platform.

One seller, for instance, is offering two Kubik standing tickets for the concert on January 23, 2024, at a total price of S$1180.

This price represents a higher price compared to the original price of S$816 for two tickets.

Another post on Carousell advertises the sale of a “Supersolis Experience” ticket, originally priced at S$538, for S$1000.
