If you're like me, you've got a bone to pick with Ticketmaster. "Convenience" charges (which aren't waived if you physically go to the box office, fyi)? And for each ticket? Is it really so much harder to stuff two into an envelope instead of one? Point is, even before economical hard times, I stopped going to concerts unless a) Ticketmaster wasn't involved, b) I would kick myself really hard for the rest of my life if I didn't see X band/musician or c) I get to go for free.

If you'll kick yourself if you don't go to this Sunday's Coldplay concert at the BankAtlantic Center, but don't want to sell your plasma for tix, and BankAtlantic (did you know they're open 7 days a week?) might have a solution. All you have to do is tune into The Link tomorrow (that would be Thursday), during which Toni and J.R. will ask a Coldplay trivia question. Email with the answer, along with your name, age, email address and phone number -- if you're one of the first six to reply, you've got yourself two tix.

And these aren't vertigo-inducing, I-can-see-bats-in-the-rafters-from-here tix. These are tix for the SUITE. Cushy seats, line-free booze ordering and no jack-arse in front of you thinking everyone would rather hear his version of "Yellow." Instead, you'll be surrounded by your fellow uber-cool users.

I'm pretty sure even Apple would agree these are good seats. Though I guess Gwenyth's lap is pretty nice, too.
