And that's just the cheap seats, mind you. The tickets will be as expensive as Rs five lakhs, mid-day quotes a source as saying.
Everyone hoping to catch Chris Martin live promptly fainted. Twitter also.
November 19 is Coldplay's date with Mumbai, as part of the Global Citizen Festival run by Chris Martin and other celebs. Apparently Jay-Z might be there, with homegrown stars like Amitabh Bachchan, Deepika Padukone and Aamir Khan - not to mention a contingent of political bigwigs.
Can't get over it:
Thanks @coldplay ! My phone is cheaper than your show tickets in India. P.s middleclass people are fans too.? sailee (@saileebharne1) September 9, 2016
Or can get over it:
If you can pay 15k for airpods, you can definitely pay 25k for the coldplay concert.? Pallav (@OyePallava) September 9, 2016
Is feeling left out:
Coldplay concert in Mumbai will be like the VVVVIP party. All bade log will be drinking wine..kya matlab? Mahi (@mahiagarwa) September 9, 2016
Has better plan:
Coldplay in Mumbai for 25k-5 lakhs? I'd rather travel all the way to New York, attend Rihanna's concert and get a life goal accomplished? Chiyaan girl (@jeni_sha15) September 9, 2016
Takes the news philosophically:
Has ne appreciation of personal Coldplay ignorance:
Wants to do things the desi way:
Whom should I bribe to get a Coldplay ticket for free? Mr. Freak-et (@mrfreaket) September 9, 2016
Turns Coldplay horror into wordplay:
...and so I hear Coldplay is hitting India n the tix are freezing our wallets at INR 25k...now that's c-o-l-d-p-l-a-y.....brrr!? Neha Sharma (@NehaOpines) September 9, 2016
Is touchingly optimistic:
I have a feeling 25k ticket for Coldplay is just a publicity stunt. Actual will be around 7-9k? Vats (@Seth_Vatsal) September 9, 2016
Is resigned to this fate:
God gave you two kidneys for a reason. One for iPhone 7 and one for Coldplay.? Narsi (@narsi08) September 9, 2016
As for us, we'll be depending on the lucky and moneyed few to post pictures and videos on social media. And we'll be watching to see who knows the words to the songs.
Last year, Chris Martin took Delhi by surprise with an impromptu gig at a local nightclub. He returned on official business and later, Coldplay filmed part of a music video in Mumbai. Sonam Kapoor and Beyonce featured - so therefore it's not entirely unlikely that Jay-Z might make it to Mumbai.
Anyway Coldplay, thanks for breaking our heart.
