Coldplay Fans Left Disheartened As Concert Ticket Scam Results In RM70,000 Loss

A group of Coldplay fans in Malaysia found themselves in a disheartening situation as they were forced to endure a substantial loss of approximately RM70,000 due to invalid tickets purchased from an individual for the Coldplay: Music Of The Spheres World Tour In Kuala Lumpur held at the National Stadium Bukit Jalil last night.

The fans, eager to witness the British rock sensation live, shared their bitter experience through a TikTok video posted by user @Abg.Supra. According to their account, despite having queued outside the stadium since early morning, their excitement turned to disappointment when, during ticket verification, organizers discovered that the tickets were invalid.

Expressing their frustration in the video, one of the fans explained, “We all got scammed, so the tickets are not valid. We ended up just sitting outside. It’s quite disheartening. We’ve all arrived, but the tickets are ‘not valid,’ just one step away from entering. We came as a group; some bought VIP tickets priced at over RM3,000, some at RM758, RM598. The estimated total loss is almost RM60,000 to RM70,000.”

Despite this setback, the dedicated Coldplay enthusiasts are undeterred, announcing their plans to attend the band’s concert in Singapore scheduled for January next year.

“It’s okay; we’ll see Coldplay’s concert in Singapore later,” they affirmed.

This unfortunate incident follows a previous report where an individual claimed to have been duped out of RM1,200 in a separate ticket purchase scam related to the Coldplay concert.

As fans in Malaysia grapple with the aftermath of this ticketing debacle, it highlights the importance of vigilance and caution when engaging in ticket transactions, emphasizing the need for thorough verification to avoid falling victim to scams in the excitement of attending live events.
