Coldplay's Mumbai gig: Twitterati say they 'Can't Pay' Rs 25,000 for tickets
It has been two months since the rumours about Coldplay's proposed concert in Mumbai have surfaced, and it looks like the British pop band is making the trip on 19 November 2016 for sure, as reported by Mid-Day.
The paper quoted their well-placed source who said, "Yes, Coldplay is set to perform in Mumbai on November 19 at the MMRDA and the show is put together by Global Citizen Festival run by Chris Martin."
According to the same news report, the official tickets will go live on the website Book My Show on 12 September 2016 and prices start from Rs 25,000 to the highest category tickets at Rs 5 lakh a ticket.
The event will also feature Jay Z, Amitabh Bachchan, Aamir Khan, AR Rahman and Deepika Padukone along with Modi and the Chief Minister of Maharashtra.
Twitterati in India had their share of fun after reading the sky high concert rates. They started making comparisons with the price of the Coldplay concert tickets to the recent announcement of the Apple Iphone 7 and the ear pods.
Here are the funniest reactions to the news:
Hmmm Coldplay tickets or iPhone7?
And people think rich people have it easy. 🙄

Now for the important question: Which brand is part of the sponsors list for the Coldplay concert?
Asking for freebies.

I think the only people who can afford tickets to Coldplay India are Kapil Sharma and the BMC.
