British rockers Coldplay are coming to North America to start their Viva La Vida tour. The band's fourth album Viva La Vida is set to hit stores on June 16 and the tour is set to kick off that day with a free show at the Brixton Academy in London followed by a another free show at Madison Square Garden in New York on June 23. Details on how to get tickets for these shows are available on the band's website. Last week the website was offering their first single "Violet Hill" free for download.
