Coldplay to tour Australia and New Zealand

By | May 19, 2016

Coldplay has recently announced that they will be touring Australia and New Zealand this year.

The British band will be visiting Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane and Auckland in early December to perform songs from their latest (seventh) album A Head Full of Dreams.

Called “A Head Full of Dreams Tour,” the sold-out shows already made their way to Europe and the United Kingdom, and soon the United States.

This will be the first tour of Australia and New Zealand in four years.

The band, however, visited Australia in 2014 to record on Sydney’s suburbs. They called fans to meet up an a pub to be extras in the video for “A Sky Full of Stars,” and expectedly, hundreds more people showed up.

“I think that not going on tour with [last album] 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,” said frontman Chris Martin.

“A Head Full Of Dreams was written as a record to be performed live. We can’t wait to do that,” he added.

Martin has also promised that fans should expect lots of impressive elements in this tour, where they will play hots like “Adventure of a Lifetime,” “Hymn For The Weekend,” and “Up & Up.”

The tour dates (tickets on sale 2pm on Monday, May 30) are as follows:

Saturday, December 3, 2016 – AUCKLAND MT Smart Stadium

Tuesday, December 6, 2016 – BRISBANE Suncorp Stadium

Friday, December 9, 2016 – MELBOURNE Etihad Stadium

Tuesday, December 13, 2016 – SYDNEY Allianz Stadium
