Toronto – Fans of multi-platinum British rock band Coldplay now have the opportunity to get tickets to their Toronto show on Thursday, July 30 at Rogers Centre before they go on-sale to the general public through a special offer from the Toronto Argonauts. This 36-hour pre-sale begins tomorrow at 10:00 a.m. through Redirect where fans can purchase a pair of Coldplay tickets with the purchase of two ticket vouchers to any 2009 pre- or regular season Argos home game as part of this limited time offer. Current and new Argos fans will be able to secure their Coldplay tickets 4 days before everyone else!

Commented Argos co-owner David Cynamon, “We always try to provide our fans with added value and unique, limited offers. What better way to reward our fan base than by giving them this special opportunity to get tickets to one of the hottest bands in the world, ahead of the general public.?

Starting Thursday, March 5 at 10:00 a.m., fans can purchase a pair of special ticket vouchers for $33 each to any 2009 pre- or regular season Argonauts home game through Redirect. Argos fans can continue to purchase tickets until Friday, March 6 at 10:00 p.m. Coldplay tickets go on-sale to the general public on Monday, March 9. This 36-hour limited window will allow fans to secure tickets, in the best possible seats, 4 days before the general public can even buy tickets.

This is the first opportunity that Argos fans will have to purchase single-game ticket vouchers for the 2009 season. Argonauts football is the best sports entertainment value in the city with a game day experience that is both unparalleled and interactive. Catch new Head Coach Bart Andrus as he takes the reins of the Double Blue and returns the team to its winning ways.

Argos co-owner Howard Sokolowski added, “Torontonians can’t ask for a more exciting long weekend. They can see a great Coldplay show on Thursday night and then head to the Argos game on Saturday at 1:00 p.m. For being one of the first to purchase one pair of Argos tickets, you can get both a hard-hitting football game and first access to a hard-rocking concert.“

Existing Argos season ticket holders will also be able to purchase Coldplay tickets ahead of the general public as a special thank you for supporting North America’s oldest professional football team.

Arguably the biggest band in the world, Coldplay has a knack for writing epic rock ballads - such as "Yellow" and the Grammy Award-winning "Clocks" - that have become the soundtrack for a generation. In concert, the charismatic Chris Martin and his mates perform their hits with impressive musicality. Fresh off three wins at the 2009 Grammy Awards including Best Rock Album and Song of the Year, Coldplay now brings their Viva La Vida World Tour to Toronto and offers Argos fans the first crack at tickets which are sure to go quickly.

Love Coldplay and especially Viva la Vida.
Doubtful if I can make the concert but hope to be there for the game on Saturday.

Very forward thinking, Congrats to the Argos management team for thinking outside the box.
This is a great way to thank the CFL fans !!
