Coldplaying the Junos

Published: 2006-01-26
The Junos aren't just for Canadians anymore.

UK rockers Coldplay, dubbed one of the biggest rock bands in the world by many, will be performing at this year's Juno awards, Canadian music's 35th annual celebration of itself.

Coldplay is in the midst of the second leg of its North American tour promoting its newest album, X&Y, which was released in June 2005. Between the March 30th show in Chicago and the April 4th show in New Hampshire, the band will be stopping in Halifax on April 2nd to play the awards ceremony.

The UK rockers will be joined by Canadian rockers Nickelback and Vancouver crooner Michael BublČ as performers at the night's show. Though huge here in Canada, both Nickelback and BublČ have huge audiences internationally as well.

While the musical acts are already being made known, nominations for the awards won't be announced until February.

Aside from the big awards show, live shows in venues across the city will showcase Canadian musicians, and the Juno Cup hockey game, featuring musicians and NHL greats, will be held to support MusiCan.
