[Updated 24 November 2016] Live Nation Lushington and Coldplay have announced a second show date to take place in Singapore on the 31 March 2017, on Friday at 7.30pm! But the good news doesn't stop there, the organiser will also be selling additional tickets for the show on 1 April 2017 too. And they will perform in Bangkok, Thailand on 7 April 2017 as well.
Tickets for the Singapore show go on sale tomorrow at 10am so get your credit cards ready! The organisers are yet to announce a sale date for the Bangkok leg.
[Updated 23 November 2016] Live Nation Lushington has a surprise for us! Whether it's a second show date or more tickets to Coldplay's Singapore show, we'll find out tomorrow at 10am.
For those of us who have not been able to get Coldplay tickets to their Singapore show in 2017, fret not because the band has announced that they've got new music coming out soon.
Hello everyone, we're working on some new songs for next year. It's called the Kaleidoscope ep. We hope you're well, love cm #KaleidoscopeEP— Coldplay (@coldplay) November 21, 2016
No other information about the upcoming EP has been released, other than it being called Kaleidoscope. On another note, there could be another chance for fans to get their hands on the tickets to Coldplay's show in Singapore next year.
According to The Straits Times, the British band has been made aware of how tickets were being illegally resold at much higher prices. "Even the band saw what happened and said, 'Michael, we have to do something,'" said Michael Roche, managing director at event organiser Live Nation Lushington.
Some 40,000 tickets are said to have been sold. The organiser may release additional tickets if and when it finalises "layout and logistic issues". An online fan petition requesting for a second show date in Singapore also came to the attention of Live Nation Lushington and Coldplay's management.
"It's the start of the tour so it's difficult to make a decision that quickly," Michael said. "We're looking at everything so let's just see what comes up in the next two days." He added that Coldplay insisted that the ticket prices were moved down – it was previously higher than the SGD78 to SGD298 range.
