Coldplay announce huge tour with dates in Manchester in 2023
2 years ago
The morning after completing their triumphant run of six sold out nights at London’s Wembley Stadium, Coldplay have announced further European and UK stadium shows for their Music Of The Spheres World Tour in summer 2023 and the band are playing Manchester’s Etihad Stadium in April of next year.
Since the band’s record-breaking tour began in Costa Rica in March 2022, more than four million tickets have been sold for the dates in Latin America, North America and Europe, which have attracted rave reviews from fans and critics alike (as per the recent praise for the Wembley shows above).
The tour has also been heralded for its groundbreaking set of sustainability initiatives which include a show powered by 100% renewable energy in almost all locations; the world’s first tourable battery system (made from 40 BMW electric car batteries); power bikes and kinetic dancefloors allowing fans to help power the show; solar panels and wind turbines at every venue; a pledge to cut tour emissions by 50%; incentives to encourage fans to travel by green transport; and one tree planted for every ticket sold.

The new tour dates were teased via Easter eggs in the band’s new video for Humankind (taken from their number one album, Music Of The Spheres) which premiered last week. To the excitement of the band’s eagle-eyed global following, the video also hinted at further shows being announced for south-east Asia and North America.
Tickets for the new European and UK shows will go on sale at 10am local time on Thursday, 25 August. Full details can be found at coldplay.com/tour.
