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.
The late spring shows will take place at the Etihad Stadium, home of Manchester City FC.
The tour has been heralded for its groundbreaking set of sustainability initiatives.
This includes a show powered by 100% renewable energy in almost all locations; the world’s first tourable battery system (made from 40 BMW electric car batteries); power bikes and kinetic dancefloors allowing fans to help power the show; solar panels and wind turbines at every venue; a pledge to cut tour emissions by 50%; incentives to encourage fans to travel by green transport; and one tree planted for every ticket sold.
Here’s all you need to know about the tour, including how to get tickets and when Coldplay will come to Manchester.
