Coldplay reveals Charlotte date on upcoming Mylo Xyloto Tour
LiveNation announced this afternoon that Coldplay will play Time Warner Cable Arena in uptown Charlotte on Tuesday, July 3. The multi-platinum selling rock band begins its international Mylo Xyloto Tour in Canada in April. It returns to the South this summer after a sweep through Europe.
Tickets for the July 3 show go on sale January 21 at 10 a.m. American Express cardholders can purchase pre-sale tickets beginning Monday, January 16.
Coldplay is currently nominated for two Grammy awards for its recent singles "Every Teardrop is a Waterfall" and "Paradise."
I'm anxious to see who will team with the band to open these shows. Coldplay brought Rilo Kiley with it for its September 2005 show - I believe it was the one and only time Jenny Lewis and the gang played here. Last time British powerhouse Elbow wowed me with a fabulous set - obviously accustomed to playing large venues in Europe.
Tickets will be available at www.livenation.com, www.ticketmaster.com, the Time Warner Cable Arena box office, and by calling 1-800-745-3000.
