Unfortunately, the Patriots won’t be going to see Coldplay in Super Bowl 50. So Coldplay are coming to New England to play the home of the Patriots.
In what doesn’t really seem like a fair tradeoff, the British pop-rock band this morning announced a string of United States stadium shows, a seven-date romp that comes to Gillette Stadium in Foxboro on July 30. Tickets go on sale February 5, at 10 a.m. via livenation.com.
The news comes less than two weeks before Coldplay, who released their seventh and latest album A Head Full Of Dreams in December, will perform live at the Super Bowl 50 Halftime Show in Santa Clara, California. This stateside romp is part of the band’s first world tour since the 2011/12 Mylo Xyloto Tour, which sold more than three million tickets across five continents.
A Head Full Of Dreams, meanwhile, has already sold more than three million copies since its release last month. Coldplay frontman Chris Martin says the album “was written as a record to be performed live. We are beyond excited to play these shows across the U.S.”
