Buying your ticket second hand is not only a risky business (they may be fake), but it's also a wallet-hitting sucker punch too.

On Saturday, thousands would have paid extortionate amounts to see Coldplay perform at Dublin's Croke Park.

As per, Chris Martin and co. put on a cracking show.

However, since Saturday, a couple of social media posts have shown that the frontman has been hanging around the Irish capital.

One of the places he visited was the International Comedy Club where Jamie Harrington works on the bar.

Jamie told the singer how he'd paid 200 euros (£177.97) to watch the band perform, having gone through a tout himself.

The ticket should have cost 25 percent less, at 150 euros (£133.48), and when Chris found out about this, he handed him a 50 euro note to compensate the difference.

Talking on Spin 1038 radio, Jamie revealed that he'd approached Martin, explaining that he'd seen them live on Saturday.

Martin thanked him for paying his hard-earned cash to see them, when Jamie laughed and explained how much he'd been charged. At that point, Martin whipped out the large red note.

It's not the first charitable act that Martin has been reported doing in the last few months. At Christmas, instead of spending it at home, surrounded by lavish presents, Martin performed a gig for homeless people in West London.

At the Crisis centre he sang Coldplay's hits and even let some of the shelter's residents have a go on the mic too.

A bit of a LAD you may, rightfully, state.
