We finally have an answer to all the confusion! AMEN!!
We all know that Coldplay is going to be performing at The Global Citizen Festival this November after a number of announcements, pricing meltdowns and confirmed appearances but now we have information that will cause another commotion.
BookMyShow, the online entertainment and ticket brand will begin selling tickets for the Chris Martin led band concert on Thursday 15th of September at noon. While everyone has been trying to get their hands on the initially announced free tickets after performing a number of Actions from the organisation website, BookMyShow (the exclusive partner for the event) will be selling tickets in four different phases via their website and mobile app.
The first phase of tickets will start selling at Rs. 5,000 (a lot better than 25,000 eh?) and every phase will begin after the previous one ends. There are also a limited amount of hospitality tickets which will have a few benefits like food and beverage options and the prices for these will start at Rs.15,000.
BookMyShow will also implement virtual management during online ticket sales to manage traffic on its platforms and set up a separate extension for users for any event related queries. The company will be giving smart RFID bands which can be used by attendees to enter the gates using turnstiles at the venue and purchase the refreshments. Most tickets will also be home delivered from the month of October.
The festival is a collaboration between The Global Education & Leadership Foundation and Global Citizen at the MMRDA grounds in Mumbai on 19th November 2016. The event will feature performances by the popular British band, Jay Z along with actors like Aamir Khan, Ranveer Singh, Katrina Kaif, Farhan Akhtar, Kareena Kapoor Khan, Arjun Kapoor, Shraddha Kapoor, and musicians such as A.R. Rahman, Arijit Singh, Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy, Monali Thakur.
So no need to sell you kidneys or any other organs! You can get these tickets while they last or wait for the tasks and try your luck there!
