Coldplay's Music Of The Spheres tour is set to hit Australian shores, with a teaser video dropped on Twitter tonight, confirming at least one show at Perth's Optus stadium. While there is no word currently about other cities, it is anticipated that a full run of dates is likely to be announced in the coming days.
