Today, Malaysians were at war as they battled to secure tickets for the upcoming Coldplay concert which is bound to happen on 22 November 2023 at the Bukit Jalil National Stadium.
Fans in Malaysia were very excited as this is the first time Coldplay is performing here.
However, there were some tension and nervousness in the air as there were hiccups in the pre-sale yesterday where many people faced trouble with the website.

The situation only went downhill when scalpers, “ticket service providers” and scammers began to pop up on sites like Carousell as well as Twitter.
One tweet from @PaanJr allegedly showed a video of bots buying the tickets from multiple computers simultaneously.

There were also those who managed to buy in bulk only to resell it, some at ridiculous prices. When one of them was confronted by a buyer, the seller replied saying “willing buyer willing seller”.

Many people were outraged by this and were not at all happy with the scalper situation.

One of them even tried buying a ticket from someone who was willing to sell it, however he allegedly got scammed, claiming he lost RM400.

After the tickets were officially sold out, fans took to demanding for a second concert.
Coldplay is a band which is known worldwide and as part of their 2023 world tour, they included Malaysia and Indonesia.
The demand for the concert tickets are sky high as those outside Malaysia and Indonesia are also eager to watch them perform live on stage. Will Coldplay listen to the demand for a second show here? We will have to wait and see.
