All you Chris Martin fans rejoice! Coldplay will be touring Australia and New Zealand for their latest album, “A Head Full of Dreams,” this December.
The Aussie stop is part of their global tour for “A Head Full of Dreams,” which also happens to be their seventh album. The band will have only three shows in Australia and they’ll be performing in Brisbane, Melbourne, and Sydney. In New Zealand, Coldplay will perform only in Auckland.
According to News.com.au, Coldplay will kick start their Australian leg of the tour with a concert in Brisbane on December 6 and it will take place at the Suncorp Stadium. They will travel to Melbourne and the second concert will happen at the Etihad Stadium on December 9. Their last concert will be held in Sydney on December 13 at Allianz Stadium.
However, this is not Chris Martin’s first time visit to Australia. Another News.com.au report reveals that Martin has not been able to stay away from the harbour city for long. Two years ago, the Coldplay frontman chose Sydney’s Newtown to shoot the music vid for “A Sky Full of Stars.”
Stuff NZ states that the band is returning to Australia and New Zealand after a hiatus of almost four years. This is their first world tour after the earlier Mylo Xyloto tour. That one took place in November 2012 and saw the band travel to these two countries.
“We’ve taken lots of stuff from the last tour that we thought worked well, like the armbands, which we love, and we’ve added more stuff that’s hopefully even better,” said Martin while speaking to The New Zealand Herald’s TimeOut Magazine.
The tour started in Argentina and the band is currently in France, states Daily Mail. They will tour the UK in June and head to Australia in December. Tickets are available on Ticketek and pre-sales will start on May 23. General sales will happen on May 30.
In case you miss out on tickets, fret not. Beyonce and Drake too are coming and are reportedly hunting for outdoor venues for their Aussie tours later this year.
