Originally scheduled to perform in Oklahoma City on July 10, Coldplay finally roll their “Viva La Vida” North American Tour into the Ford Center on Sunday, Nov. 16, with special guests John Hopkins and Sleepercar in tow. Due to production delays, Coldplay had to postpone several summer shows on the tour. Tickets already purchased for the July 10 date will be honored on Nov. 16.
Meanwhile, the British hitmakers' fourth album, “Viva La Vida or Death and All His Friends,” has sold more than 5 million copies — 5,728,000 to be exact — since its June 17 release, according to WorldWideAlbums.net. Globally, the album has become the biggest music success of 2008, topping World Wide's bestseller list. The single, “Viva La Vida,” is the hottest selling album track so far, with more than 4 million combined CD and digital copies sold. Released prior to the album in early May, the song remains strong on charts around the world.
On Nov. 25, Coldplay will release “Prospekt's March,” an EP of eight songs that were originally intended for inclusion on the album. Coldplay frontman Chris Martin explains on the band's Website that the tracks weren't finished in time to meet the completion deadline for the “Viva La Vida” LP. The band will also release a deluxe two-disc “Viva La Vide: Prospekt's March Edition” on that date.
