Coldplay are coming to Australia.

The band and some special guests will perform in Perth later this year. Thanks to a partnership between the Western Australian Government and Live Nation, the beloved British band will hold two special concerts at Perth’s Optus Stadium as part of their Music of the Spheres World Tour.

The historic shows will take place on Saturday, November 18th and Sunday, November 19th, and will be an Australian-exclusive event. It’s the second major coup in a year for WA, following Björk’s visit for Perth Festival.

“It’s a huge deal for us and we’re massively looking forward to coming back to Western Australia. It’s been way too long,” the band say.

Tickets go on sale to the general public on Tuesday, May 16th at 10am local time. The pre-sale begins on Monday, May 15th at 10am local time (sign up here).

Coldplay will be ably supported by two of Australia’s most prominent singer-songwriters in Amy Shark and Thelma Plum. The former was recently unveiled as Rolling Stone AU/NZ‘s cover star for our March issue, discussing in detail her long journey to the pinnacle of Australian pop.

The upcoming Perth show will be Chris Martin and co.’s first performance in the country since 2016. They’re touring in support of their 2021 album Music of the Spheres, which topped the ARIA Albums Chart. Fans can expect to hear tracks from that album, as well as old classics like “Viva La Vida” and “Clocks”, at Optus Stadium.
