Following Coldplay's announcement of additional European tour dates for summer 2024, speculation is rife about the potential for UK tour dates to be added. We discuss potential dates, locations, and how to secure your seat.

How are Coldplay doing an environmental tour?

In the run-up to the ongoing 'Music of the Spheres World Tour' it was reported that the rockers were set to end their self-imposed touring ban, after hiring 'eco-experts to get them gigging again'. According to The Sun, the band 'struck a deal with BMW to tour in a “carbon neutral” way, thanks to specially produced electric trucks and vehicles.'

In a statement, the band said "we're very conscious that the planet is facing a climate crisis. So we've spent the last two years consulting with environmental experts to make this tour as sustainable as possible, and, just as importantly, to harness the tour's potential to push things forward."

The environmentally sustainable tour has seen the band's shows powered by 10% renewable energy. Solar installations have been featured at every concert venue, and energy was also generated from a kinetic stadium floor and kinetic bikes powered by fans.

Coldplay was the first act to play the Climate Pledge Arena on 22nd October 2021 in Washington, the USA at the world's first zero-carbon arena.

What are Coldplay's new singles and album?

Coldplay have announced details of the follow-up to 2021’s ‘Music of the Spheres’. The band expects to release their tenth studio album ‘Moon Music’ in 2024, but haven’t confirmed the official release date.

Lead singer Chris Martin described the forthcoming ‘Moon Music’ as the “second Music Of The Spheres volume”, and teased that the band might start playing some of the songs on tour before its release date, growing fans’ anticipation of the new material steadily.

The band's back catalogue is now made up of ten records. These include the 2003 Brit Award Album of the Year, 'Rush of Blood to the Head' and the Grammy Award-winning 'Viva la Vida And Death and All His Friends', produced by Brian Eno, and 'Ghost Stories'.

Who are Coldplay's support act on tour?

Support acts for the next phase of Coldplay's world tour were announced in February.

The band will be joined variously by British pop singer Maisie Peters, American singers Janelle Monáe and Maggie Rogers, and a number of different artists native to the countries they will be touring.

When are where could Coldplay play in the UK in 2024?

As of now, the band has not provided any confirmation regarding UK tour dates in 2024. However, given the incredible success they have had with previous shows in the country, it’s highly probable that they will consider adding additional dates.

Fans in the UK are particularly hopeful as multiple new dates have already been added to the tour since its announcement. They eagerly await the possibility of the band including stops in their home country.

If Coldplay do decide to include UK dates, performances can be expected in cities such as London, Manchester, Cardiff, and Birmingham. The potential timeframe for these shows would likely be around September, taking advantage of the band's upcoming two-month break before the tour resumes in Australia at the end of October.

Are Coldplay playing at Glastonbury 2024?

The band have been announced as headliners at Glastonbury 2024, an honour they have had many times in previous years, in 2002, 2005, 2011 and 2016. They will be headlining alongside artists Dua Lipa and SZA.
