This post is about US shows.

I'd like to see what Coldplay would do at Madison Square Garden (New York City, USA). I believe the last time they played there was during the X&Y or probably before that. After the Viva tour their shows started getting bigger in terms of lighting, visuals, etc. Since MSG is a relatively big arena, I'd like to see what they do with it, if they play there.

In addition, it would be cool if they played at other arenas in the US they haven't played at since the MX tour: Barclays Center (Brooklyn, NY), Wells-Fargo Center (Philadelphia, PA), or the TD Garden (Boston, MA). The only reason I'm mentioning arenas and not stadiums is because likely they'll play most of the stadiums they played during the US leg of the AHFOD tour. Also I live on the east coast so that's why I didn't mention any arenas on the west coast.

Agree or disagree?
I would love it if they play MSG. Even though it's a bit of a pain to get there for me, I would for sure try to go. Wells Fargo would be great ... I saw them there on VLV and MX tours (well it was Wachovia Center in 2008) so it'd be cool to keep the tradition going. I loved the stadiums but I'd like to see them in at least one arena this tour cycle. I wouldn't mind driving up to Toronto or Boston, I haven't been on a road trip in too long. Do we have any idea what time roughly they might be back in the US/Canada? Spring? Late winter? Later?
if you take the Megabus from Philly to NYC, MSG is like right near the drop off :wink3: that would be my plan if they played there and i was able to go :p
but i would super love to see them at Wells Fargo :wideeyed: the only time i've ever been there was for Smackdown's 15th anniversary two years ago

You mean Port Authority ?

Port Authority was close to the well-lit Times Square and Rockefeller Plaza as well, which was my luck when I arrived in the middle of the night to see them at the Today Show... :)
I had never been to NYC before, back then, and if it had been any farther I would likely not have gone at all.

Megabus actually drops off around 7th Ave and 28th street (just on the sidewalk, not an actual terminal), so closer to Penn Station than Port Authority, but yes only a dozen blocks away from Port Authority... i realize now that sounds far, but it's about a fifteen minute walk. maybe more like 5 minutes to get to MSG :p
this is my method of getting back to where i'm originally from in NY, going through this area of NYC to get a second bus the rest of the way. despite being from NY that's really the only time i've ever spent in NYC :lol:

Oh, you are from NY ? I thought you wanted to take the bus from Philly !
NYC is an adventure onto itself. I really love that city, wish I had more time to explore it while I was still from the US. I have been there three times (the first two of which were associated with Coldplay concerts). I have to say I didn't appreciate it the first time round, when I was sick and sleep-deprived and it was pouring down so much that my coat was still wet two days later. But I explored the city in good weather the next two times, and it is so interesting. The only thing that was a bit disappointing is that some of the New Yorkers seem to have rudeness, at least to tourists, as their standard attitude...I had a few unpleasant encounters, but then again for every nasty person there were other friendly and helpful ones, and I try to remember the good encounters more. Would like to visit again to explore more :D

oh, well, i was born and raised in NY, a couple of hours north from the city, but currently i live in Philly - i've been here for about fours years now because of school :D it's funny, because i've seen Coldplay in Massachussettes, New Jersey, and now Pennsylvania, but never in my home state.

people who live in NYC definitely tend to have that always-on-the-go attitude that ends up becoming rudeness a lot of the time. my favorite thing is walking around and being able to tell who those people are by the way they cross the streets without waiting for the lights to actually change :p

Oh yes, I remember when Wells Fargo Center was the Wachovia. Good times...
Likely they'll be in Canada late spring/summer like during the MX tour. Chris made it sound like Canada is getting its own leg, but we'll have to wait and see.

They never play in NYC anymore :(

Metlife doesn't count even if it was #ColdplayNewYork.


At least they played at the Beacon Theater in 2014 for Ghost Stories.

Agree !

Some smaller arenas in Europe would be cool :)

I don't really know of many in Europe because smaller arenas would be considered hockey arenas, and I don't think there are as many in Europe as there are in the US/Canada.


The Mohegan Sun Arena here in the US was easily the smallest venue of the entire MX tour, Europe included, not including promo shows. It would be nice if they had an arena with a similar size in Europe. I really do hope they play in Europe (Paris specifically) because I went to the UK for a Wembley show and one of the Manchester shows back in June and it was my first time seeing Coldplay outside of North America.

I've never been to Paris before, so if they play in Paris, not only will I be seeing Coldplay again, but I'll be visiting a new city and a new country!

I am pretty sure that Coldplay will come to Paris, they have always played there ! Last year it was not possible because of the European Soccer Cup. Paris is a lovely city, to me it is the most beautiful city in the world, it's always worth a visit ! I hope you will enjoy it !
Do you think they will consider arenas with ca. 15.000 seats, or is that too small for them ? If they would come to Mannheim SAP Arena, I would go again because it is close to home. If they visit farther away in Germany, I'm not sure I could go...
