Coldplay information for their Auckland show this Saturday

Coldplay's NZ show takes place tomorrow (Saturday December 3rd) at Mt Smart Stadium in Auckland.

This is the band’s first world tour since the Mylo Xyloto Tour, which included Australian and New Zealand shows in November 2012. More than two million tickets have already been sold for the A Head Full Of Dreams Tour, which kicked off with a record-breaking stadium run in Latin America in March / April and which will see the band perform four sold out nights at London’s Wembley Stadium in June.

A Head Full Of Dreams (out now through Warner Music New Zealand) is Coldplay’s seventh album, featuring singles ‘Adventure Of A Lifetime’, ‘Hymn for the Weekend’ and ‘Up & Up’. Since its December 2015 release, the album has reached Number One on iTunes in more than 90 countries and sold more than 3.5 million copies. It has also cemented Coldplay’s position as Spotify’s most-streamed band in the world.

The album is the vibrant follow-up to 2014’s fragile and lovelorn Ghost Stories, Coldplay’s sixth consecutive worldwide chart topper. The band chose not to tour Ghost Stories and headed straight back into the studio to record A Head Full Of Dreams.

Says Coldplay’s 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.”
