Coldplay announce Hampden show

Coldplay have today announced the Latin American and European legs of next year’s A Head Full Of Dreams Tour, with 20 stadium shows confirmed – including a visit to Scotland’s Hampden Park on June 7, 2016.

 This is the band’s first world tour since the 2011/12 Mylo Xyloto Tour, which was seen by more than three million people in five continents. It includes their first Latin American shows since 2010, with the band’s first ever dates in Peru and Venezuela.

A Head Full Of Dreams (out December 4) is the vibrant follow-up to 2014’s fragile and lovelorn Ghost Stories, Coldplay’s sixth consecutive worldwide chart topper. The band chose not to tour Ghost Stories and headed straight back into the studio to record A Head Full Of Dreams.

Says Coldplay’s Chris Martin: “I think that not going on tour with Ghost Stories was one of the best decisions we ever made, because it gave us such pent-up energy in the studio and completely reignited everyone’s desire to go around the world and play music. A Head Full Of Dreams was written as a record to be performed live. We can’t wait to do that.”
