Coldplay will tour Australia in 2012, according to promotors

In breaking news, according to the Music Feeds Aus website, it has been revealed that Coldplay will be touring Australia later this year on the back of their latest album Mylo Xyloto.

Promoter Michael Gudinski let news of the upcoming tour slip when speaking with Triple M Melbourne’s Eddie McGuire. Eddie revealed the information on his Hot Breakfast show this morning: “I was sitting next to (promoter) Michael Gudinski last night and he said Coldplay are coming out later this year.”

Coldplay were last in Australia for the Splendour In The Grass Festival in July 2011, the band flew over for a one-off show. Alongside Coldplay the festival featured the likes of Pulp, Kanye West, Jane’s Addiction and The Hives. Guy Berryman told the Brisbane’s Courier Mail last year: “It’s not really the sort of place you’d come to for a day, but we’ll be back at some point in 2012 to do a proper tour.”

Coldplay dates for 2012 to be announced soon… (according to Music Feeds anyway…) So what is your bet for the Australian tour… November? December? Earlier? Let us know at the Coldplay Live forum now! [thanks _Tash]
