Coldplay tour details announced


UNDENIABLY the world's biggest band, Coldplay, is heading to Suncorp Stadium in Brisbane on November 21 for the Mylo Xyloto tour.

This will mark the first time the seven-time Grammy Award winners have toured Australia since the overwhelming success of their 2009 Viva La Vida tour and their quick visit to our shores headlining 2011's Splendour in the Grass.

"We can't wait to get back to Australia this November. It's such a special place for us.

"These venues are pretty huge, the Aussie crowds are always incredible and we'll be bringing everything we've got. It's going to be big," Chris Martin said.

Supporting Coldplay will be The Temper Trap and opening the stage at each show will be The Pierces.
