    Coldplay to Tour Again in the US: Recap & Media Reports

    chrisballoon1.jpgAs you know (or may not know if you've been off the planet) Coldplay has announced the next leg of its North American tour earlier than expected with a 24-city spring run.


    Starting off on off May 15 at Cruzan Amphitheatre in West Palm Beach, FL, and finally breaking on June 20 at General Motors Place in Vancouver, BC. Highlights for the spring run include a May 17 gig at Lakewood Amphitheatre in Atlanta, GA, a May 26 event at Susquehanna Bank Center in Camden, NJ and a June 6 concert at Sommet Center in Nashville, TN. The media have been busy writing articles across the world; here are a few choice selections that may be of interest if you are going to the shows:

    Coldplay North American tour triples in size

    Coldplay had previously announced a quick summer 2009 tour that will visit cities across the US and Canada. That portion of tour starts up on July 10 at the Amphitheater at Clark Cty in Ridgefield, WA, and closes August 9 at Ford Amphitheatre in Tampa, FL.


    As a "breather" between spring and summer North American tours, they'll perform a few European music festivals, followed by a European tour through the late summer. Coldplay is now on a month-long tour of the Asia-Pacific region, with upcoming stops in Australia, New Zealand and Singapore to promote its 4th studio album, 2008's "Viva La Vida or Death and All His Friends".


    In addition to all their gigging, Coldplay has also booked some studio time, though drummer Will Champion noted that a follow-up to "Viva La Vida" (buy copy here) isn't likely soon. "It's a very strange time for the way people listen to music. It's getting more and more fragmented, with people buying single songs rather than albums," he noted in an interview on their site, Coldplay.com.


    "In many ways, it's going back to the way it was originally, where people would release singles and then an album was a collection of singles." Champion added, "We want to do something totally revolutionary, that hasn't been done before. We're writing with a view towards that. But what that is, we don't yet know."
