After playing the Super Bowl half-time show this past winter in San Francisco, Coldplay will hit football stadiums across America next summer, including U.S. Bank Stadium on Aug. 12.
Tickets for the Minneapolis date on the band’s A Head Full of Dreams Tour go on sale Saturday, Oct. 15, through Ticketmaster. Promoter Live Nation once again did not provide fans with the courtesy of letting them know how much seats will cost. A Citi Card member’s pre-sale begins Monday.
Not counting a non-public appearance at Target’s corporate sales convention in 2014, the British pop-rockers of “Yellow” and “Viva la Vida” fame haven’t performed in the Twin Cities since a pair of Xcel Energy Center shows in 2012. In that time, frontman Chris Martin endured a very public conscious uncoupling, and his group issued two albums. The latest one, “A Head Full of Dreams,” has failed to go platinum since its release last December, but the band continued to be a hot concert ticket in a limited stadium tour this summer.
After the Metallica show this past August, the new Vikings stadium will have already hosted more major rock concerts in its second year than the Twins' country-leaning Target Field has since 2009. Unless rumors of a Pearl Jam date at the ballpark next summer prove true.
