Coldplay Tickets Cost Rs 25K Minimum, Kahaan Gaye ‘Achhe Din’?

Coldplay’s India performance might be for charity, but it just created a new section in society- the urban poor.

Even though Coldplay is yet to announce its India tour officially, Mumbaikars have already been waiting eagerly to find out how they can get their hands on the concert tickets. But the ticket price jhatka has left us all a bit numb. Apparently, the starting price for a single ticket to watch Chris Martin and gang performing live is Rs 25,000! The band will be performing at MMRDA Grounds on 19 November for a charitable trust that Chris Martin, the band’s lead singer and guitarist, together with his band, is a part of.

Tweeples are having a tough time digesting the ticket price and after shedding some tears of heartache, they’re back to self mockery thanks to the unexpected ‘surge pricing’. So if you’re feeling poor and sad, these tweets will make you ROFL.

From asking Narendra Modi about our ‘acche din’ to buying an iPhone worth the cost of three Coldplay concert tickets, Twitter is going into a tizzy over this new development.

Well anyway, they’ve given us a ‘reason’ for making the asking price that steep. Whatevs!

The tickets are expected to be priced at 25000 INR and will go up to 5 Lac INR. Steep? Yes of course, but it is for a charitable cause. And the entire proceedings will be donated to the Global Citizen’s Poverty Project, for which Chris was here last year and played a surprise gig at Delhi too. But we feel that they will most likely be VIP, VVIP and above category tickets. Global Citizen is known to host a free concert for fans to support this charitable cause.

I thought Martin never meant to cause us ‘trouble’...? To add to our dejection after the launch of the latest iPhone (which is the baap of everything ‘overpriced’), this news is just too much to take.

We hope the organisers are listening to the new class of the ‘urban poor’ here?
