It is confirmed: Coldplay is coming to India. The date is November 19 when Chris Martin and company will perform at Mumbai’s the MMRDA grounds.
The British band will perform in India as part of the Global Citizen Program. They have earlier staged a similar concert in the US during Super Bowl. All proceeds from the concert will go to Global Citizens Poverty Project. Tickets for the event will go on sale between September 12 and 15 on BookMyShow.
The singer was in India last year as well as part of the same project. He did an impromptu gig in Delhi’s SummerHouse Cafe after which the fan frenzy on social media was palpable.
And if you are planning to already book your tickets, desist.
For, the show joins the list of another expensive thing that came out this week, iphone 7, that we urban poor can’t afford. For rumour has it that the tickets for the Coldplay concert would be priced starting from Rs 25,000 and going up to 5 Lakhs.
When the news of Coldplay having their first-ever concert in India broke, it did get a lot of cheer and excitement but soon Twitter had a field day when the heart breaking news started making rounds.
Meanwhile look how Twitter reacted to the high ticket prices :
