Coldplay Winners Get Their Tickets

Published on December 14th 2005.

Two lucky winners took us up on our offer to get down to Exchange Square today to be the first to greet the Manchester Confidential team and win a pair of Coldplay tickets, kindly provided by Key 103, for the big gig at the MEN Arena on Monday night.

Clare Lawrence from Powell Communications and Joanne Overton from MCS PR displayed immense dedication to the cause by firstly designing a great big banner (seen above) and secondly by annoucning their love for Manchester Confidential across Exchange Square at the top of their voices.

We invited readers down to the square to try and win tickets to see Coldplay - possibly the biggest band on the planet at the moment and natural successors to U2's soft rock crown.

The only trouble was, we didn't receive the tickets in time to set up a competition in our usual format, so had to come up with another idea.

We were waiting by the big screen in Exchange Square waiting to hand the pair of tickets to the first person who confronted us and it didn't take long. No sooner had we taken up position, Joanne and Clare set off towards us. Thanks to them for not leaving us standing around in the cold for too long. It was good to see the tickets going to a pair of dedicated fans too - Clare has recently got back from Paris after seeing Coldplay in concert over the Channel.

For those who didn't get their in time, there were sweets and chocolates all round. Look out for more competitions on Manchester Confidential soon....

Thanks again to Key 103 for supplying the tickets.
