Coldplay arena tickets sell out in minutes

Band's trio of shows sell out in seconds as fans swamp ticket websites

Coldplay‘s winter arena tour sold out within minutes after fans swamped ticket websites.

A spokesman for the band’s tour company, X-Ray Touring, confirmed all shows had sold out “extremely quickly” after going on sale at 9.30am on Friday morning [September 23].

The band, who release their fifth album ‘Xylo Myloto’ on October 24, begin their small tour in Glasgow on December 3, before moving on to Manchester and London on December 4 and 9 respectively.

Many fans complained that the price of the tickets – £65 – was too high, while others weren’t happy with the two-per-customer limit.

Fans are now likely to turn to other sources to try and secure tickets for the shows, with a number of tickets already available on auction sites such as eBay.

There are rumours more shows will be added to the tour in the coming weeks.
