Coldplay to summer in Houston: Neon friendly Toyota Center date set
Coldplay will be hitting Houston June 25 in support of its latest album, Mylo Xyloto.
Tickets go on sale Dec. 17 at 10 a.m. for seats to the 2012 world tour stop at Toyota Center, the dates of which were announced Thursday. The tour kicks off in Edmonton, Canada in April and works its way throughout North America before closing Aug.11 in St. Paul.
One bit of bad news for traveling fans of music festivals: The dates mean Coldplay will in all likelihood miss Lollapalooza this year, as the band is scheduled to play Chicago Aug. 7 — two days after Lolla is over.
The band's latest has been hailed as their most ambitious yet still appealing, and if the tour is anything like concerts in support of the work so far, expect lots of neon, confetti and neon confetti.
Also just announced? The Red Hot Chili Peppers on March 8 at the Toyota Center. Those tickets go on sale Saturday.
