Fans who missed out on Coldplay’s Perth shows over the weekend due to flight cancellations can claim free tickets to the band’s 2024 Australian tour dates, the band revealed on Twitter/X yesterday.

Two flights from Brisbane and Adelaide were cancelled last week, so many fans missed out on attending the Coldplay shows at Optus Stadium. Those fans can now claim free tickets for the English group’s 2024 tour dates in Melbourne and Sydney, courtesy of Coldplay.

“We were really sorry to hear about the fans who didn't make it to this weekend's Perth shows because of two cancelled flights from Adelaide and Brisbane,” Coldplay wrote on social media yesterday.

“If you were booked to travel on VA721 on Wednesday evening or VA474 on Thursday evening and had a ticket/tickets for the Perth show, the band would like to offer you a free ticket/tickets for the 2024 Australian dates.”

The band added, “Anyone affected should email before 5 pm AEDT on 28th November for info on how to claim their ticket(s).”

They’ve locked in two dates in Melbourne and Sydney – Wednesday, 30 and Thursday, 31 October at Melbourne’s Marvel Stadium, and Wednesday, 6 and Thursday, 7 November at Sydney’s Accor Stadium. On Wednesday, 13 November, they’ll headline Auckland’s Eden Park. They’ll be joined by special guests PinkPantheress and Emmanuel Kelly.

The fan pre-sale begins at 10 am local time on Wednesday, 29 November, with the general sale starting on Friday, 1 December, at 10 am local time. You can buy tickets via the Coldplay website.

The Music reviewer Sam Mead loved the band’s first show in Perth, writing, “The energy is unreal - it’s like sitting in your front room with 60,000 other friends, listening to Chris and the boys set your house on fire in the best way possible.”

Mead also called the show “a pure spectacle of a live performance”, praising the band’s punchy, hard-hitting grooves and journey through their rich 26-year-old catalogue.
