COLDPLAY TICKETS FOR MAY ON SALE THIS WEEK
BRITISH indie band Coldplay has confirmed the date of its next live performance in Spain as May 26, 2016 in the Barcelona Olympic Stadium.
The London-based grunge rockers, led by singer Chris Martin, will be presenting their new album A head of full dreams along with its earlier, most popular tracks at the one-night-only concert, its sole date in Spain for next year.
According to the band, the new album will be released on December 4 and includes duets and tracks produced with top artists including Beyoncé, Noel Gallagher, Merry Clayton and Tove Lo.
The first single from the CD, Adventure of a lifetime, was released a week ago and tickets for the Barcelona show will go on sale this coming Friday, November 27.
Coldplay’s last album was recorded in a studio in Barcelona and includes tracks with a traditionally-Spanish feel.
The band has always retained close ties to the north-eastern city, and staged a competition there in April last year – the lyrics to one of Coldplay’s songs were hidden in a library in Barcelona, and the person who found them would get a free ticket and backstage pass to their concert in London.
In the end, a female student found the paper with the lyrics handwritten by Martin, concealed in the Sant Pau i La Santa Creu library in Barcelona’s Raval district, and claimed her free ticket.
