Can you believe it’s been exactly one year and one month since the first time we reported Coldplay could be touring Asia?
Things started taking shape in April as Filipino giant telecom company Globe confirmed the British band was “definitely coming to Manila” but we were yet to hear anything official from Coldplay themselves.
Until this past Friday, when the group appeared on the Graham Norton Show as musical guest, and Chris Martin, along with guitarist Jonny Buckland, confirmed they’d be bringing A Head Full of Dreams Tour to “Australia, New Zealand, Asia, Europe, America next year.”
And where exactly in Asia?
Glad you asked. Because the Grammy-winning quintet just took to Twitter to reveal the lucky countries. Check them out below.

Didn’t catch them all? Okay, so you have…
Aaaaand the Philippines.
Exact dates will be revealed soon but media outlets are already saying they will be between January and May. Meanwhile, a Taiwanese newspaper reported last week Coldplay’s Taipei concert will be in April after the one in Singapore, which is “likely to be in late March”.
Now, try to save up and rejoice in the fact that A Head Full of Dreams Asia is actually happening!
