Coldplay are returning to Asia and Australia this November for a special run of stadium shows as part of their Music Of The Spheres World Tour.

The dates include the band’s first Tokyo shows since 2017, their first ever dates in Kaohsiung, Jakarta and Kuala Lumpur and a special one-off performance at Perth’s Optus Stadium – their first in Western Australia since 2009.

Support for Perth will come from special guests Amy Shark and Thelma Plum, with additional support for all shows to be announced at a later date.

Presented by the Western Australian Government, through Tourism WA, and Live Nation, the Australian-exclusive Perth concert will take place on Saturday 18 November and will be promoted alongside hotel packages designed to encourage visitors to stay longer and explore further.

The Music of The Spheres World Tour has sold over six million tickets across Europe, North America, and Latin America since kicking off in March 2022

“This partnership with the Western Australian Government is set to make history, by bringing one of the world’s most iconic and successful bands, exclusively to Perth in 2023,” says Luke Hede, Live Nation’s VP of touring. “It’s hard to think of a better city for Australians to see Coldplay’s spectacular Music of the Spheres show, while making a weekend of it in our country’s sunniest capital city.”

The presale runs from 10am local time on Monday 15 May to 9am on Tuesday 16 May, with general public tickets go on sale at 10am on Tuesday 16 May.
