A Head Full of Touring
After surfacing in 2000 with the breakthrough single "Yellow," Coldplay quickly became one of the biggest British bands of the new millennium, honing a mix of introspective Brit-pop and anthemic rock that landed the British quartet a near-permanent residence on record charts worldwide. Now Coldplay return in 2017 with a new set of dates in support of A Head Full of Dreams. Catch them live when they play in Soldier Field Stadium in Chicago, IL, Closed August 17, 2017
From Parachutes to Dreams
The group's emergence was perfectly timed; Radiohead had just released the overly cerebral Kid A, while Oasis had ditched two founding members and embraced psychedelic experimentation on Standing on the Shoulder of Giants. U.K. audiences were hungry for a fresh-faced rock band with big aspirations and an even bigger sound, and Coldplay were more than happy to take the reins. Parachutes went multi-platinum in several countries and earned the band its first Grammy, but Coldplay continued to grow into the 00s, topping their debut album's success with higher record sales and an increased public profile.
Colplay have gone on to become one of the world's most enduringly popular bands, selling over 70 million records worldwide.
2014 marked the release of the band's sixth studio album, Ghost Stories, and just a year later they released their seventh - A Head Full of Dreams.
