Coldplay are returning to Wembley Stadium for two nights in June 2016 on their A Head Full Of Dreams Tour.
The shows, on 16 and 18 June, form part of the band’s first world tour since they took ‘Mylo Xyloto’ to more than three million people in five continents during 2011 and 2012.
Since wrapping that trek, the band released the introspective ‘Ghost Stories’ in 2014 and, instead of going on another tour, then headed back into the studio to record ‘A Head Full Of Dreams’, due for release on 4 December 2015.
“I think that not going on tour with ‘Ghost Stories’ was one of the best decisions we ever made,” says Coldplay frontman Chris Martin, “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.”
The band’s seventh album was recorded in Malibu, Los Angeles, and London with Norwegian production duo Stargate together with the band’s long-time collaborator Rik Simpson.
Featuring more guests than any previous Coldplay record — including Beyoncé, Noel Gallagher, and Tove Lo — ‘A Head Full Of Dreams’ is preceded by the disco-flavoured lead single ‘Adventure Of A Lifetime’.
Expect to hear it, as well as other new songs like ‘Hymn For The Weekend’, alongside their greatest hits when Coldplay reach Wembley next year.
