Coldplay Unexpectedly Announce Super Intimate Dates


Coldplay has just announced a series of very intimate shows,… but what does it mean? The famous band is one of the biggest bands of the world and they are used to play gigantic places like The Barclays Center in NY, the Hollywood Bowl in LA and stadiums or arenas all over the world, but this time, this is a very intimate affair:  the Beacon theater in New York and Royce Hall in Los Angeles… I have been there, and it is very small for Coldplay, 1,800 seateror so? The other dates are in Europe and Japan, and there’s only 6 of them…. what is going on exactly? Coldplay is about to release a new album ‘Ghost Stories’ and a band like them usually embarks in a massive world tour, booking giant size arenas from Australia to Stockholm,… No such thing here, not even a festival headlining, just 6 dates in tiny places? Their last big tour was for ‘Mylo Kyloto’ in 2012 so that was already two years ago, isn’t it a bit strange for a rock band like Coldplay? These strategic dates at least reveal they are big in Japan , Germany and France but if they don’t announce other dates (and a lot of them) I believe a lot of fans are gonna be very disappointed or even mad. Who is gonna be able to get a seat with such a small amount of tickets available? Not a lot of people and good luck with that Ticketmaster refresh button!

It’s possible that Chris Martin had this in mind for quite some time, because, during the Australian leg of their last tour, he told the crowd at Brisbane’s Suncorp Stadium that they wouldn’t play another ‘big show for a few years’. May be he had this in mind but now that his conscious uncoupling or unconscious coupling, whatever they call it, has officially taken place, he is more than ever foreign at playing the major rock star? In any case, tickets for the Cologne show go on sale online Saturday here, and ticket information for the other dates will be mailed exclusively to subscribers to the band’s newsletter (you can sign up here). In my case, I will not even bother.

Here are the tour dates:
April 25 – E-Werk, Cologne, Germany
May 5  – Beacon Theatre, New York, U.S.
May 19 – Royce Hall, Los Angeles, U.S.
May 28  – Casino de Paris, Paris, France
June 12 – Dome City Hall, Tokyo, Japan
July 1  – Royal Albert Hall, London, U.K.
