Chugg Entertainment today confirmed that Coldplay would return to Australia next February on their “Viva La Vida” tour, in support of their new album of the same name.
In a rare move for the Australian market, Coldplay will go on-sale with two shows in each of the East Coast cities to ensure as many tickets as possible are made available to meet the demand that was set the last time they toured. The four-city jaunt will kick off on Friday 27 February at the Burswood Dome in Perth, travel to Melbourne for two shows on Tuesday 3 and Wednesday 4 March, and then move on to Brisbane at the Entertainment Centre on Sunday 8 and Monday 9 March. The tour finishes up at Sydney’s Acer Arena on Wednesday 11 and Thursday 12 March.
On their last concert tour of Australia in June 2006, Coldplay sold out a total of ten arenas shows, playing to more than 100,000 people, garnering rave reviews and leaving rapturous fans in their wake.
