Coldplay Announces Stadium Tour of North America

Published: 2005-05-18
Coldplay has finally announced its plans for a full-fledged tour of North America this fall. The pop-rock quartet has already made a return to the continent, headlining at Coachella and playing a series of "buzz gigs," including one at Toronto's Kool Haus at the beginning of May.

Chris Martin and company have tacked on 36 North American dates to their world tour, which already includes a summer trip around the U.K., in support of their upcoming album, X&Y. Taking indie rockers Rilo Kiley along for the ride, the Brit-pop giants kick off the jaunt on August 2nd in Toronto. The tour runs all the way through September, finishing off in Virginia on the last day of that month.

Unfortunately, just two Canadian dates made the agenda. Besides Toronto, only Montreal will receive a visit from Coldplay. Vancouver, not to mention a load of other Canadian cities, will not be seeing Coldplay anytime soon, oddly.
