- British band Coldplay has confirmed that they will play in Manila on April 4, 2017
- Netizens were shocked at the concert's outrageous ticket prices and took out their feelings on social media
- Others complained of the venue, while some claimed that it is cheaper to watch them abroad
Now that it has been confirmed that Coldplay will grace Manila for the first time next year, fans could barely stomach its ticket prices.
Music Management International revealed on its Instagram page the rates for the concert, with P 1,800 as its lowest price for the General Admission.
The highest price, however, costs others their whole salary - a whopping P 22,500.
Netizens took out their frustration on every social media platform, humorously sharing how they will obtain funds to buy tickets.
Others, however, joined the bandwagon by promoting their cause.
There was this netizen who shared that the exorbitant ticket prices were unfair, considering the venue of the concert.
It was supported by Karysma Czarina, who started a petition on change.org to change the venue to the Philippine Sports Stadium.
Another netizen, who goes by the name of Mariah Sanchez, even compared the prices of the upcoming concert to its Asian counterparts, stating that it is better to watch the band overseas.
AirAsia unknowingly supported her claims and offered interested concert goers with their low fares to the concert's other venues in Asia.
Lest we forget, the voice of the common people on Twitter.
We get it - Coldplay's ticket prices are expensive, but if you have been waiting for the band to come in the country you should have at least saved some money for it.
Nevertheless, we are still in awe that many Filipinos are fans of Coldplay since they are not really a mainstream band.
This does not affect our views on the matter - we are still excited for them to play next year! We share the same feelings as these adorable babies.
