Coldplay - Coldplay Announce UK Stadium Tour

Subscribe to Coldplay alerts

Coldplay have announced a UK tour for next year.

The 'Paradise' hitmakers will play a string of soccer stadiums in support of their new album 'Mylo Xyloto', beginning with Coventry's Ricoh Arena on May 29.

They then head to London, where they will play at the Emirates Stadium on June 1 and 2, before moving on to play at Sunderland's Stadium of Light on June 7 and ending the brief tour in Manchester at the city's Etihad Stadium on June 9.

Tickets for the shows go on sale on November 18.

Meanwhile, frontman Chris Martin has spoken about how the group - who begin an arena tour next month - divide their royalties, revealing he takes just a 40 per cent share, despite being the band's main songwriter, with the remainder shared equally between Jonny Buckland, Guy Berryman and Will Champion.

He told US radio DJ Howard Stern: "We split things 20, 20, 20, 40 - I get the 40 per cent. I've never told anyone that before.

"It's not about me being humble, it's important to keep your band and chemistry together."
