Coldplay have sold an estimated 1.4 million tickets for their just announced 2023 UK and European tour.
The band wrapped up the UK leg of their massive “Music Of The Spheres” world tour this week, which included six nights at London’s Wembley Stadium. Between July and the beginning of August a series of concerts were held in Europe.
On Monday (August 22), Chris Martin and company confirmed they will be hitting the road in the UK and Europe for May, June and July next year for more shows, including stops in Manchester and Cardiff.
Tickets for those dates went on sale here at 10am local time yesterday (Thursday 25 August).
Now, it has been revealed that Coldplay has already sold 1.4 million tickets. Two additional concerts have been added in Manchester (for a total of four on the schedule) due to popular demand.
A second performance is also planned at Cardiff’s Principality Stadium on June 7. Additional dates have been announced in Portugal, Spain, Italy, Switzerland, Sweden and the Netherlands.
Coldplay has sold more than 5.4 million tickets for their dates in Latin America, North America and Europe, according to a press release.
The tour has several innovative initiatives in terms of sustainability and respect for the environment, since almost all shows run on 100% renewable energy. Bikes and kinetic dance floors also allow fans to help fuel the concert.

During their recent Wembley residency, Coldplay was joined on stage by a number of special guests, including Steve Coogan in his role as Alan Partridge, as well as Stormzy, Craig David and Natalie Imbruglia.
Rolling Stones front man Mick Jagger attended one of the dates in London. Sharing a video on social media, he wrote: “Had a great time watching Coldplay last night. A real holiday for the man in the street.”
In a laudatory five-star review of Coldplay’s concert at Wembley on 16 August, NME praised the band for “creating a joyous show; a master class in how to make a huge pop show”.
“This show is a welcome dose of serotonin; a feel-good celebration. The best Tuesday of our lives? That’s high praise, but given the public reception, you could say there are thousands of viewers, that’s for sure there.”
