The British rock band Coldplay announced just this week that Perth will be included in their Music of the Spheres World Tour, and are all set to visit our western ‘paradise’ on Saturday 18 November 2023.
The Optus Stadium show will mark Coldplay’s first Australian appearance since December 2016, during which Perth fans didn’t make the tour cut. This time, however, a deal has been struck between Live Nation and Tourism WA.
The show is intended to be promoted nationally and internationally too, reeling in tourism to our sunny, beachside city.
Supporting acts include Amy Shark and Thelma Plum, along with a slew of dazzling lasers, fabulous fireworks, and LED wristbands to amp up the ambience.
Being one of the world’s most popular bands, you’ve probably heard a couple of their smash hits, namely, Yellow, Clocks, Viva La Vida, The Scientist, and Adventure of a Lifetime – whether that be while you’re browsing the grocery store or whilst watching a film.
“We’re so happy to be returning to Perth for an extra special one-off show at Optus Stadium on November 18 this year. It’s a huge deal for us and we’re massively looking forward to coming back to Western Australia. It’s been way too long,” Coldplay said in a statement.
We may be one of the most isolated cities in the world, but we’re a good city, worthy of concerts much like our eastern state siblings.
Tickets for Coldplay’s Music of the Spheres World Tour will go on sale Monday 15 May from 10am (AWST) through to 9am on Tuesday 16 May. General public tickets will then be put up for grabs from 10am (also AWST) on Tuesday 16 May.
