Coldplay announced further dates for their “Music of the Spheres” stadium tour today, Aug. 22, the morning after completing a sold out six-night run at Wembley Stadium in London, England.

In 2023, the tour will visit Portugal, Spain, Italy, Switzerland, Denmark, Sweden and the Netherlands, for the first time, alongside UK shows in Manchester and Cardiff.

Since “Music of the Spheres” kicked off in Costa Rica in March 2022, more than four million tickets have been sold for dates in Latin America, North America and Europe. It’s no surprise that Coldplay is currently leading Pollstar’s LIVE75.
