One of today‘s biggest bands, Coldplay, sets out on a long-awaited stadium tour in 2016. This includes 20 impressive stadiums in 14 countries and will be the band’s first world tour since 2011/12. The excitement is difficult to manage as we can pump out the message that Coldplay are taking Stockholm and Friends Arena in possession July 3 next year. Tickets go on sale Friday, November 27 at 9:00 am.

Since before, it has become known that Coldplay releases new album on december 4th. A Head Full Of Dreams is the title and is produced by the Norwegian star duo Stargate along with the band’s longtime partner Rik Simpson. This is said to contain more partnerships than any of their previous albums, including Beyoncé, Noel Gallagher, Tove Lo and Merry Clayton. The eleven tracks long album was recorded in Malibu, LA and London and is according to the band their best work so far.

This fact has made Coldplay set out on a tour in 2016 which starts in South America and the plan ends in Europe. 20 stadium concerts in 14 countries, which will be the London band’s first major outing since Mylo Xyloto Tour which took place in 2011/12 and was seen by more than three million people spread across five continents.

The new album A Head Full Of Dreams is the sequel to the 2014 brittle and lovelorn Ghost Stories, Coldplay’s sixth in the series of albums that topped the charts worldwide. But instead of touring on the album, they jumped straight into the studio to begin recording the the long-awaited A Head Full Of Dreams.

Coldplay frontman Chris Martin greets:

“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.”
