Music Of The Spheres: Guess What Will Happen When Coldplay Visits Athens

The glory, Coldplay has earned since they began the “Music of the Spheres World Tour,” comes to a complete manifestation when they visit any city for their concert and soon, Athens will be on the receiving side of this.

The events often make people wonder if a politician is passing through town, but that’s not the case. It’s just Coldplay being Coldplay, a British band that immediately became a global sensation again when they embarked on the “Music of the Spheres World Tour” in 2022.

They’ve so far recorded outstanding attendance in places they’ve performed before; this is after their tickets were met with overwhelming demands before the commencement of the tour.

The “Music of the Spheres World Tour” is expected to end on the 16th of November this year, and the Coldplayers in Athens happen to be part of the lucky set of people to watch Coldplay perform in the last days of the tour.

Coldplay will visit Athens for a 2-night concert, on the 8th and 9th of June. The anticipation in the city of Athens expresses clearly that the Coldplayers there are eager to host them.

And, if you are yet to secure your tickets to the concert, you can do so through an alternative tickets marketplace, which we recommend as the best option to get Coldplay Athens tickets at the moment.

Speaking of Coldplay’s might and glory, guess what will happen when Coldplay visits Athens this June?


Heavy Traffic

There will be an inflow of concert attendees which will result in heavy traffic, especially on major roads leading to Athens’ Olympic Stadium. Most of the cars that will cause this traffic will be the cars of concert attendees. And even though they are there to watch Coldplay perform, Coldplay isn’t in support of this.

Coldplay has let out memos pleading with Coldplayers to choose public transportation options, instead of using their cars when attending their concert. This will help them accomplish their sustainability mission amidst the “Music of the Spheres World Tour.”

But, aside from the fact that public transportation might be overcrowded, people might not get to the concert venue on time. Plus, there probably will be thousands of people coming from far places that public transport cannot reach. These people will have no option but to use their means of transportation.

Additionally, imagine thousands of people walking on the streets of Athens, on their way to the venue; they are enough to cause traffic on a good day. But, the good side of this is that it only lasts a couple of days, presumably, the days Coldplay will be performing in Athens.

The traffic should go back to normal once Coldplay leaves Athens after their 9th of June concert.


Filled-Up Accommodation

Hotels and motels and any other place that has the space to offer accommodation to people will be filled up a week before Coldplay’s visit.

If you own a motel or a hotel, this will sound like good news. However, when you are a concert attendee planning on going all the way to Athens to watch Coldplay perform, this should prompt you to start planning on making reservations if you must, before time shrinks because there will be thousands of people coming from far places and they will need a place to stay the duration of Coldplay’s concerts.

The way this works from our research is that accommodations closer to the Olympic Stadium will be the first to get filled up by concert attendees. The next will be places that are drivable to the venue. Along the line, all that will be left will be places that are, most likely, 1 hour or 2 hours drive from the Olympic stadium, and it will only get worse from there.

So, for your good, make sure to make hay while the sun still shines because you won’t want to embark on a 2-hour drive when Coldplay ends their concert for the night.


Filled-Up Parking Spaces

As with the heavy traffic, expect filled-up parking spaces within the Athens Olympic Stadium. Since it will be hard to predict the number of concert attendees that will attend the Coldplay concert with their cars, it will be wise to book a parking space on time so as not to be stranded in your car.

We’ve received complaints from concert attendees who made it to Coldplay concerts but had nowhere to park, forcing them to sit in their car and attend the concert from outside the venue even though they had tickets to the concert.

Some had to park hours away from the main concert venue, and it resulted in them using public transport to get to the venue, which can be tiring, that is if you’re lucky enough to get one that is not filled up, and on time.

Sadly, a car isn’t an entity you can just leave anywhere. Doing so might get you booked for parking at the wrong place. What’s worse than getting a parking ticket when you’re far from home?

Even though the rules might differ as per location, it’s wise to make adequate preparations to be on the safer side.


Noisy Evenings

This is especially true for people who reside close to Athens’ Olympic Stadium, but will not be attending Coldplay concerts for one reason or the other.

It’s going to be one hell of a long night when Coldplay starts their concert. The music is usually so loud that Coldplay fans are advised to attend the concert with earplugs.

Music aside, you can also kiss any form of quiet goodbye due to the multitude of people that will be in Athens for the Coldplay concert. Concerts are usually fun places and people tend to show happiness by talking and engaging in other loud activities.

Even before the concert kicks off officially, concert attendees might blast different Coldplay music through their car’s speakers, or jam boxes to state the least.

During the concert, Coldplay might also engage different forms of entertainment which from experience has included fireworks displays that are extremely loud. So, take this as advice if you reside close to the Olympic Stadium and will not be attending Coldplay concert due to one reason or the other, and brace up.


Empty Stores

You might as well get that “Music of the Spheres World Tour” merchandise now before June reaches, as one of the major indicators that a Coldplay concert is about to take place is from the empty sections in stores where Coldplay Merchandise are usually displayed.

Additionally, the thousands that will be attending Coldplay concerts will need accessories alongside other items, and the stores will be the best place to get them. It will be wise to stock up on time before the time comes when stores become empty due to the overwhelming demands of concert attendees.

On rare occasions, the item will be available, but the price tag will be something else, enough to make you bite your teeth.

Overall, most of these are stated here to make you prepare well, in anticipation of the Coldplay concert. With the speed at which 2024 is going, June should be here in no time, and you don’t want to be caught off guard.
