The €20 tickets will be released at a later date, according to the band.
In an effort to be inclusive to fans without hundreds of euros to spend on tickets, Coldplay has announced the release of a limited number of "Infinity Tickets" that will only set fans back €20. These tickets for the August 29-30, 2024 shows on their Music Of The Spheres World Tour will be released at a "later date".
The news comes after the band announced two Dublin dates next August at Croke Park. Irish fans were originally left disappointed after Ireland was snubbed out of a show on their current tour dates. The gigs will be Coldplay's first time back in Ireland since their 2017 Croke Park shows.

The concept behind Infinity Tickets is that when purchasing, you will not be able to choose where you sit in the arena. Therefore, you could end up very close to the stage, or in the very back of the arena for the same price, depending on your luck. This move is a part of an attempt to make concert-going more affordable for fans, as ticket prices keep rising.
These tickets will be "restricted to a maximum of two tickets per purchaser," according to promoter MCD, and the tickets "must be bought in pairs (which will be located next to each other)."
Just this past week, Irish Taylor Swift fans attempted to get tickets for her highly anticipated Dublin Eras Tour stop next year, just to be faced with an hours-long queue and many faced with only exorbitantly priced VIP packages left. Despite the megastar staying for three nights at Aviva stadium, demand was so high that some fans reported tickets selling on Ticketmaster for over €700.
In a post Eras-tour world, it seems that Coldplay is taking measures to avoid an increasingly common Ticketmaster fiasco when their tickets go on sale later this month.
Other artists who have attempted (and some have succeeded) in lowering prices for their tours include Tom Grennan, Caity Baser and The Cure.
