Gordon in the morning: Coldplay find their market level

The news that Coldplay tickets are going for a dollar a piece in the US is quite an interesting story.

It confuses poor old Gordon, though, who can't seem to decide if it's a sign that Coldplay are in decline:

And it seems they have flogged their horse to death.
In other words, there's no one left out there who wants to see CHRIS MARTIN and the lads.
So, it seems you CAN have too much of a good thing.

Or, on the other hand, if it's a fabulous bargain for something special:
I think the low price is fantastic. I caught the opening night of Coldplay's world tour in Los Angeles last year and also saw them in Salt Lake City and was mightily impressed.
Get a ticket - whatever the price.

Yes - go and watch the band flogging their horse to death; make sure you snap up the tickets to be one of the nobody left who wants to snap up the tickets.

Of course, Gordon can't afford to be too tart - he might not get to fly on Chris Martin's private jet in future. Mind you, the way things are going, Chris Martin might not be able to afford to fly on Chris Martin's private jet much longer, either.
