Only Mukesh Ambani, Kapil Sharma and the BMC can afford Coldplay tickets, says Twitter

Coldplay is finally going to perform in India - all right, fine - in Mumbai and it has triggered mass hysteria.

First came the all-consuming joy over the fact that fans could actually listen to Hymn for the Weekend live. Then came the moment when jaws collectively dropped on the floor after the prices of the tickets were announced.

Mid-Day reported that Coldplay was scheduled to perform at Mumbai's MMRDA grounds on 19 November. The dialy quoted a source as saying:

"The official tickets will go live on Book My Show on 12 September next week and prices start from Rs 25,000 to the highest category tickets at Rs 5 lakh a ticket".

According to the report, the event is a charitable one, the intention behind which is to support a noble cause - to remove extreme poverty from the world by 2030. The event will reportedly also feature Jay Z, Amitabh Bachchan, Aamir Khan, AR Rahman and Deepika Padukone.

Well, charity is fine but now people need to find someone charitable enough to fund the tickets of the urban poor among the millennials. Because Rs 25,000 is base price. Costs actually GO UP TO RS 5 LAKH.

Hey Coldplay, Rs 25,000 is rent for a majority of Indians, not the cost for a ticket. Which pea-brained pathetic excuse for a human being thought this would be a good idea in a third world country?

Twitter, of course, is both bemused and outraged.
