Coldplay Set to Break Records With Expanded Stadium Tour Down Under – Billboard

Written by on 01/12/2023


When Coldplay’s world tour heads to Australia and New Zealand in 2024, the Brits will go where no band has gone before.

Coldplay’s tour Down Under expands with the addition of six new stadium dates across Melbourne (Marvel Stadium), Sydney (Accord Stadium) and Auckland (Eden Park), for a total of 11 trans-Tasman shows.

With the addition of two dates at Eden Park, Chris Martin and Co. become the first act to play three nights at the Auckland venue, the nation’s home of rugby, and biggest stadium, whose history dates back 123 years.

As it stands, Coldplay will now perform four shows in Sydney and Melbourne, and three in Auckland, the most populous cities in both markets.

According to Live Nation, which is producing the lap of ANZ, Coldplay’s Music Of The Spheres World Tour has enjoyed “unprecedented demand for tickets” during the pre-sale period.

Interest for the shows were pumped by a pair of concerts last month at Perth’s Optus Stadium – marking the group’s return to Western Australia for the first time since 2009. Coldplay last played Australia’s east coast and NZ back in 2016.

The pop-rock outfit is a legitimate heavyweight in these parts, with 2022’s Music Of The Spheres blasting to No. 1 on the ARIA Albums Chart, for the group’s seventh leader. They’ve previously led the national chart with A Rush Of Blood To The Head (September 2002), X&Y (June 2005), Viva La Vida (June 2008), Mylo Xyloto (October 2011), Ghost Stories (May 2014) and Everyday Life (December 2019).

The Music Of The Spheres World Tour is already in the history books. Since it kicked off date in March 2022, the trek has notched more than 9 million tickets. Recently, the band strolled into Billboard Boxscore history, following the Rolling Stones to become just the second artist to score a half-billion double-up in the top 10 of all-time highest-grossing tours, when their current tour crossed the $500 million mark.
