Coldplay concert

Post by Cheekybeek » Sat, 13 May 2006 10:30 pm

Anyone planning on going? What is the seating like in the stadium and do you think it's worth the money?

Has anyone been to a concert at the indoor stadium? Whats the atmosphere and seating like? Is it worth going for the more expensive seating?

My experience of indoor concerts are that the atmosphere is very quiet and dull. The majority of Singaporeans tend to sit quietly and politely clap at the end of each song.

Ditto that! Went for Rolling Stones concert, felt like I was attending some opera. My idea of a concert... smoke, sweat and gyrating bodies crushed close, not what you would find in the indoor stadium. However, Cold Play is worth going for. I would go if I were you.
It's not getting any smarter out there. You have to come to terms with stupidity, and make it work for you.

I'm thinking about going, it's a bit expensive though. I'd want to go downstairs standing so that's the pricey tickets.

I went to Franz Ferdinand earlier this year and the sound was bad. Someone else I know went to both FF and Oasis and said the sound was bad at Oasis too. It'd be awful if we paid all that cash and they messed up the sound for Coldplay too. I wish they were playing at Fort Canning instead.

Maybe the weather scared them off having it outdoors. It is pricey, I dunno, are the cheapy seats REALLY bad? If it was less than $100 I would go but it is sort of just out of budget. Haven't been to a concert in Singers and really upset I can't see the U2 tour :cry: Not many decent bands seem to bother coming here.

Was there for Franz Ferdinand early this year. The stadium was like a box in which I could not breathe. The atmosphere was dull, and lights, audio systems were the simplest I ever saw in concerts. The band played very well but I felt they played too hard to remain their fame in such an environment. The crowd was same high but crazy guys seemed only foreigners. You'd better not sit as the seating area arrangement was more like a cinema, maybe suitable for classic music concert. But for ColdPlay, standing could make you feel much more excited.
It's not necessary to ask worth or not going. You dont have to support the stadium but still enjoy meeting your loved band. This is the point to go. However, the ticket price is really high for many ppl to think twice. Well, drink less, and go!
When can I stop laughing?? Life is soooooo wonderful! :wink:

I agree here. I remember Sting in '96. Like a poetry reading of the Sylvia Plath society. Torture.

We sat in the equivalent of the $148 seats for Franz Ferdinand as the standing was full - we were in the A05 area as you look at the seating plan on the Sistic website. I also went to the Eagles there (yes, more money than sense!), and we were right at the back in the B05 or 06 (somewhere around there). The view from up there was OK - I couldn't see Franz Ferdinand really clearly from the front of the upstairs and I couldn't see the Eagles really clearly from the back, so not much of a difference where you sit up there I reckon. I think you'd have to pay for free standing to get close.

You'd be OK in the cheapies if you wanted to go and see them. At FF loads of people piled down to the front of the balcony anyway, so regardless of how much they'd paid, they had the same view (security were getting a bit edgy about that though so they may have done something to avoid people being able to do that now).

Hope this helps
