LIVING LA VIDA COLDPLAY: TOUR STARTS IN JULY

You
know you were waiting to hear about this….

By Fred Mills

 

With their Viva La Vida album due next week (June 17) from
Capitol, Coldplay is gearing up for a North American tour that kicks off July
14 in L.A. Sorry kids: that and the following night are sold out. 30,000
tickets vanished in less than an hour last weekend. But never fear: Tickets for
the tour are scheduled to go on sale this weekend in San
Jose, Chicago, Montreal,
Toronto and Boston.

 

According to the band’s handlers, the first few dates of the North
American tour  “have been rescheduled due
to production delays. ‘We’re very sorry, but we promise you a show worthy of
your patience and understanding when we start in mid-July,” said the band,
in a statement.’ Tickets already purchased for these shows will be honored on
the new dates.”

 

More info: To celebrate the Viva
La Vida
tour and album, the band will play free concerts in London (June 16th at the Brixton
Academy), Barcelona
(June 17th at Espacio Movistar) and New York City
(June 23rd at Madison
Square Garden).
Tickets for these shows have already been given away via a contest, but fans
are invited to turn out for the group’s performance on the Today show on NBC on Friday, June 27th. Viewing is on a first-come,
first-served basis outside the show’s Window on the World Studio, located at 49th Street and Rockefeller Plaza
in New York City.
The band will also perform on Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show with Jon
Stewart”on June 26th.
