The very famous Coldplay band, with an origin in London has won more than 63 awards & millions of hearts Worldwide. The band features Chris Martin, Jonny Buckland, Guy Berryman, Will Champion and Phil Harvey as the lead performers. Since 2000, this band has become very popular in India as well and to treat this fan base, the rock band is going to perform under ‘Coldplay’s Global Citizen concert’ in Mumbai scheduled for November 19.
The fans are super-excited to experience the live performance of the band – evident from the lighting speed at which the concert tickets have been selling.
Within couple of hours since Book My Show (ticketing website) opened the floodgates (on 15th Sep) to Coldplay’s Global Citizen concert in Mumbai – the website crashed. It took them quite a while before the site could be revived and the bookings be commenced again.
The ticket pricing starts generously at Rs. 5,000 for the Early bird in Silver Class and goes upto a hefty Rs. 35,000 for Gold Class. Well, the Coldplay fans are surely super rich.
“BookMyShow is elated and overwhelmed by the response received towards the online ticketing for the Global Citizen Festival India 2016 as we saw unprecedented demand and traffic on its platforms. Just as we had expected and foreseen, Phase 1 and Phase 2 tickets were sold out within a very short period of time, for both the Silver and Gold categories,” a spokesperson of BookMyShow said in a statement.
Making its maiden appearance in India, the festival is a collaboration between The Global Education & Leadership Foundation and Global Citizen.

25k for coldplay concert tickets, it’s like taking revenge on people for downloading their songs for free from internet #ColdplayIndia.

#Coldplay should just call their charity concert in India as iCharity 7 Plus. Then I wouldn’t mind paying 5 lakh for a ticket.
