Coldplay announce stadium tour

By | Published on Monday 23 November 2015


Coldplay – the coldest of all the players – have announced that they will tour the stadiums of the world next year. Well, why not? Let them have their fun, I say. On their way they’ll play four UK shows, including two nights at Wembley Stadium.

It’ll be the band’s first tour since 2012, them having taken time off from touring after the release of their last album ‘Ghost Stories’. But ‘A Head Full Of Dreams’, out on 4 Dec, needs the push, apparently. So off they go.

Says Chris Martin: “I think that not going on tour with ‘Ghost Stories’ was one of the best decisions we ever made, because it gave us such pent-up energy in the studio and completely reignited everyone’s desire to go around the world and play music. ‘A Head Full Of Dreams’ was written as a record to be performed live. We can’t wait to do that”.

Here are all the UK shows so far announced:

4 Jun: Manchester, Etihad Stadium
7 Jun: Glasgow, Hampden Park
16 Jun: London, Wembley Stadium
18 Jun: London, Wembley Stadium

Tickets will be on sale this Friday at 9.30am, or the day before if you pre-order the new album on Amazon by 11.59pm tonight.
