With a little over two years since their last visit to South America, Chilean media sources, namely POTQ.cl today are at it again - predicting that Coldplay will return to play there in November, around the same time as the Killers.
Whilst a Coldplay Latin America tour for 2009 has yet to be confirmed, The Killers’ frontman Brandon Flowers recently revealed back in February that he was planning to reform the Coldplay/Killers supergroup that wowed the crowd at February's War Child gig. He said at the NME Awards: “We had so much doing that gig for War Child that we really want to do it again – but it’ll probably happen in South America.”
Furthermore, Coldplay's Will Champion recently said in an online interview that they were hoping to continue their Viva La Vida tour beyond the European stadium concerts: "We certainly want to try and get there [south America] before the end of the year. But it's still up in the air, to be honest. I really hope we make it."
This comes just months after more speculation from Latin American sources that successfully predicted the last tour. Chile, Mexico, Brazil and Argentina are likely to be included in any Coldplay itinery, with the possibility of additions such as Perú or Colombia. Producers involved in negotiations were the same which took care of Coldplay's first 3 shows of 2007 - February 14th, 15th and 16th in Chile, when around 15000 people over the three nights saw them live in concert. Coldplay have confirmed tour dates up until March 19th, which is when a Latin America tour will start (possibly in Mexico). Coldplay's return would need a bigger stage - the 2007 concerts were in a 5000 people venue.
