Following the spectacular sellout success of this weekend’s Perth Optus Stadium shows – part of the November 2023 Asia leg of Coldplay’s record-breaking Music Of The Spheres World Tour which has also taken them to Tokyo, Kaohsiung and Jakarta – the band have today announced a run of Australia and New Zealand dates for October and November 2024.
The shows will see Coldplay perform in Sydney, Melbourne and Auckland for the first time since 2016.
Fans can register now at coldplay.com for access to the ticket presale – which begins at 10am local time on Wednesday, 29th November 2023. The general sale begins on Friday, 1st December 2023 at 10am local time.
Since the first Music Of The Spheres World Tour date in March 2022, the band have sold over 9 million tickets – the most for any tour over the last two years. The tour has also received rave reviews from fans and critics alike, picking up accolades including Favorite Touring Artist at the 2022 AMAs and Tour of The Year at the 2023 iHeartRadio Awards.
The band recently issued an update on the tour’s sustainability initiatives, revealing that, on a show-by-show comparison, their current tour has so far produced 47% less CO2e emissions than their previous stadium tour in 2016/17, and that more than 7 million trees have already been planted around the world (with one being planted for each concert goer).
On Thursday, Coldplay were named in TIME Magazine’s inaugural TIME100 Climate, a new list of the world’s most influential leaders driving real climate action.
Coldplay will make a limited number of Infinity Tickets available for the shows at a later date. Infinity Tickets are released for every Coldplay show to make the Music Of The Spheres World Tour accessible to fans for an affordable price. They will cost $32 AUD / $32 NZD per ticket. They are restricted to a maximum of two tickets per purchaser, and must be bought in pairs (which will be located next to each other).
The band have also revealed their support acts for the shows will be PinkPantheress and Emmanuel Kelly.
