Comms ministry to meet Coldplay concert organiser over ticketing system, says Fahmi


KUCHING: The Communications and Digital Ministry will call up the organiser of the Coldplay concert to understand their ticketing system and procedures.

Its minister Fahmi Fadzil said this followed complaints from people who had difficulty purchasing tickets due to scalpers buying in bulk.

He said the meeting would also discuss measures that can be taken by the organiser to ensure the same issue does not recur.

"Among the things we may look into is how tickets are sold – whether there should be restrictions or certain conditions imposed on the organisers.

"We are also looking at existing legal provisions in case we need to take action," he told reporters before paying a courtesy call on Sarawak Premier Tan Sri Abang Johari Tun Openg here on Friday (May 19).

Coldplay's "Music of The Spheres World Tour" concert is scheduled for Nov 22 at the Bukit Jalil National Stadium, the band's first-ever concert in Malaysia. – Bernama
