Call it magic and call it true! After weeks of speculation, it’s finally confirmed that Coldplay are coming to Bangkok for their A Head Full of Dreams Asia Tour.
Following Coldplay’s Internet-breaking announcement of five Asia dates earlier this month, an anonymous source confirmed to AsiaLive365 the British quartet will be performing at Bangkok’s Rajamangala Stadium
either on April 7 or 8, 2017.
This will be Chris Martin and Co.’s return to the Southeast Asian country in almost thirteen years. Thai fans last saw them play the Impact Arena Muang Thong Thani in 2003 for A Rush of Blood to the Head Tour.
To say it’s about time would be downplaying it: ever since the arena debut, Coldplay have released five more No. 1 albums and amassed generations of new fans, some of whom have already booked a flight to their neighbouring countries for the concert.
For those who have been thinking about travelling, there’s no need for so much physical work now – the only battle to fight will depend on your fingertips and Internet speed alone.
Tickets, as almost always, will be up for grabs through Thai Ticket Major. Sale date and price details are expected to be revealed tomorrow (November 24).
In equally exciting news, November 24 will be a big day for Coldplay fans in the Philippines and Singapore: tickets to the Manila show will go on sale for the first time through SM Tickets and Singapore can expect some big news from Live Nation Singapore at 10AM local time.
While many are hoping for additional tickets to the 40,000 sold out this past week, our source said the announcement will likely be about the addition of a second show, which will make Singapore the only stop in Southeast Asia to host A Head Full of Dreams concerts back-to-back.
Ah, which will it be? Tomorrow can’t come soon enough. We’ll keep you updated as soon as official announcements are made.
