After bringing their Music Of The Spheres show to Perth this weekend, Coldplay will return to Australia and New Zealand in October and November 2024, lining up shows in Melbourne, Sydney and Auckland.

This weekend, they played in Perth – at Optus Stadium – for the first time since 2009, with special guests Amy Shark, Thelma Plum and Tash Sultana. They were also joined by local openers King Ibis and Adrian Dzvuke.

Here’s what The Music reviewer Sam Mead had to say about the band’s first Perth show - don’t forget, a second concert was added due to demand: “The energy is unreal - it’s like sitting in your front room with 60,000 other friends, listening to Chris and the boys set your house on fire in the best way possible.”

Mead also called the show “a pure spectacle of a live performance”, praising the band’s punchy, hard-hitting grooves and journey through their rich 26-year-old catalogue.

Now, for the first time since 2016, Coldplay are coming back to Melbourne, Sydney and Auckland. They’ve locked in two dates in Melbourne and Sydney – Wednesday, 30 and Thursday, 31 October at Melbourne’s Marvel Stadium, and Wednesday, 6 and Thursday, 7 November at Sydney’s Accor Stadium. On Wednesday, 13 November, they’ll headline Auckland’s Eden Park.

In addition to the very exciting news about their return, Coldplay will bring special guests PinkPantheress and Emmanuel Kelly along for the ride.

The Music Of The Spheres tour, which kicked off in Costa Rica’s San José on 18 March 2022 and has made its way around the world, is one of the most progressive for accessibility and sustainability, with the band having planted over seven million trees around the globe – one tree planted per concertgoer.

Music Of The Spheres, the band’s ninth album, was released in 2021, and The Music described it as “an epic pop symphony”. While not hitting the commercial highs of their previous albums, it spawned the massive hit My Universe with BTS, as well as the ten-minute sensation Coloratura. One of the first new albums to take full advantage of Apple Music's spatial audio mixing, the album is a sonic feast.
