All 40,000 or so tickets to Coldplay's Singapore concert at the Sports Hub on April 1, 2017, have sold out.

This was after the final batch of tickets for the general public were released at 10am on Monday, Nov. 21, and were snapped up in 90 minutes

Live Nation Lushington said the Sports Hub Tix hotline and website had close to 20,000 unique users trying to dial in or access the ticketing site on Monday.

Hundreds of walk-in patrons had queued at the Indoor Stadium main Box Office and SingPost outlets, some even doing so overnight.

Tickets ranged from S$78 to S$298.

Calling it a “never-before-seen response”, Live Nation Lushington clarified that its ticketing system did not crash, despite complaints that access was impossible for some who tried booking tickets online.

The promoter said tickets were in the queue system or were being transacted during those holding periods.

Due to the overwhelming demand, Live Nation Lushington are in discussions to release more tickets, which might go on sale on Wednesday or Thursday.

All 12,000 pre-sale tickets for the band’s concert allocated for Citibank credit-card holders were snapped up in under an hour after they were released for purchase online last Thursday.

Similarly, all tickets allocated for Live Nation Lushington’s mailing list subscribers on Sunday were sold out quickly.

The black market has been awash with resale tickets but Live Nation Lushington has warned fans not to buy from resellers.

Tickets found to be resold will be voided and access to the venue denied, the organiser said.
