Martin failed to get tickets for Jackson gigs

Chris Martin has said that he failed to get tickets for Michael Jackson’s upcoming fifty date residency at London’s O2 Arena. You would have thought they’d arrange an extra date for someone as important as the Coldplay frontman, wouldn’t you?

Commenting on the speed with which all the tickets sold out, Martin said: “I was looking at it on the internet and thought, ‘I’d better buy some for myself’ and I couldn’t. They were totally sold out. To sell out like that is a testament to talent. It is just amazing to sell out 50 shows in one city in a big arena. It’s the biggest comeback since Lazarus. It’s good news – but not for me”.
