Coldplay fans told to return tickets

Tickets for Glasgow gigs were printed on the 'wrong paper'

Coldplay fans with tickets for the band’s forthcoming shows at Glasgow’s SECC venue have been told they must return them – because they are printed on the wrong paper.

Ticket distribution company Ticketmaster has asked fans to send back tickets bought through them for the shows on December 5 and 6 as soon as possible.

All customers affected by the mistake have been sent out freepost envelopes to return the tickets in, with Ticketmaster saying that they will refund all service charges.

A spokesperson for promoter DF Concerts said that while all tickets bought direct from Ticketmaster would be exchanged in time, fans with tickets bought from secondary sources such as Ebay might end up disappointed.

“It will be more difficult to replace tickets originally purchased through Ticketmaster and then sold on through the secondary ticket market,” the spokesperson said.

He added: “In this case, ticket holders should contact their point of purchase. We urge these secondary sources to look after their customers at this time.”

Coldplay are currently touring America. Following the US jaunt they will head to Canada, Japan and Europe before playing 14 UK gigs in December.
