Coldplay on Friday announced a new run of 2017 North American stadium and arena shows on its seemingly endless A Head Full Of Dreams Tour that includes an Aug. 28 concert at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens.
Tickets for the Monday-night concert will cost $29.50-$189.50 and are scheduled to go on sale 10 a.m. Friday, Oct. 21, at LiveNation.com, all Ticketmaster outlets, including Ticketmaster.com and 800-745-3000.
The on-sale date for the Miami show is nearly a week later than the rest of the dates on the tour, a decision made during the uncertainty of Hurricane Matthew.
The tour, in support of the British quartet’s seventh album, the dance club-friendly “A Head Full Of Dreams,” began in March and has played to nearly 3 million people across Latin America, Europe and the U.S. Sell-outs have been routine, from Berlin’s Olympiastadion to New Jersey’s MetLife Stadium in July.
While the new music will be less new by next year, reviews of this summer’s shows have celebrated the relentlessly upbeat energy Coldplay creates. The band has been opening not with the trademark introspection heard on favorites such as “The Scientist” or “Yellow,” but with its new anthem of big-picture globalism, “A Head Full Of Dreams.”
"Coldplay started its show the way most bands would end theirs, (and it) only got better from there," wrote a reviewer for New York’s Newsday.
The new dates announced for next summer include 18 concerts, kicking off Aug. 1 with a return to MetLife Stadium and concluding Oct. 8, 2017, in San Diego. The tour also includes stops in Toronto, Edmonton and Vancouver, the band’s first performances in Canada in five years.
