You had to have some pretty quick fingers to snag tickets to one of the two Coldplay Chicago shows scheduled for this summer at the United Center. The best seats sold out almost immediately after the became available.

But now there's a way to see the August 7th or 8th show without paying exorbitant prices to your friendly neighborhood scalper. Plus, you'll get a meal out of it.

Blackboardeats.com is offering a $250 deal that gets you a floor-level seat at the concert and an exclusive pre-show dinner at River North's Mercadito restaurant.

The pre-show menu doesn't look too shabby either, and includes goodies such as a guacamole tasting, the tacos the restaurant is famous for and a Coldplay-inspired tequila based cocktail.

Needless to say, you might want to move fast. No sense missing out on those tickets a second time around.
