Coldplay are coming to Manchester in 2023 - here’s all you need to know about getting tickets

Rock band Coldplay have announced a huge European tour taking place next year, including two nights in Manchester.

The 17 date announcement followed a triumphant run of six sold-out nights at London’s Wembley Stadium and these new shows will be a part of the Music Of The Spheres World Tour in summer 2023.

Since the band’s record-breaking tour began in Costa Rica in March 2022, more than four million tickets have been sold for the dates in Latin America, North America and Europe, which have attracted rave reviews from fans and critics alike.
