Coldplay is scheduled to perform on November 22 at the Bukit Jalil National Stadium. On the 16th, a presale event was held for CIMB card holders, attracting over 400,000 fans to queue online, setting a record for the highest number of people vying for tickets simultaneously.

Scalpers offering Coldplay tickets at high price

While many fans were left disappointed, opportunistic scalpers also offered tickets online for three to four times the original price, further inflaming the situation.

Additionally, some also shared their frustrations with the ticketing system, as the website repeatedly crashed on the day of the sale, preventing many from purchasing tickets.


The PAS member and former Temerloh Dr. Nasrudin Hassan Tantawi also presented photos suggesting that Coldplay’s members had previously held up the rainbow flag on stage, hinting at their support for the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) community.
