Coldplay at Barclays Center in 2012 (more by Dana (distortion) Yavin)
Coldplay

Coldplay will release their sixth album, Ghost Stories, on May 19 via Parlophone/Atlantic and though a full tour in support of it hasn't been announced, they did just announce a few intimate international dates surrounding its release, including two in the US. They'll play LA on the album's release date, but before that they'll hit NYC on May 5 at Beacon Theatre, a much smaller venue than their 2012 shows at Barclays Center. Tickets will be on sale soon via this Ticketmaster link, and the band's mailing list subscribers will get early ticket info via Coldplay.com.

All tour dates are listed, with the videos for the very Bon Iver-sounding single "Midnight," the more Coldplay-sounding single "Magic," album artwork and tracklist, below...

Thank Butt that BV is here to tune me in to the radical new sounds of Coldplay. Im so moved. I am a butt that talks.

It's sad, but Coldplay are a hell of a lot better than Perfect Pussy, Speedy Ortiz, or literally any band Sacher writes about.

Thanks BV, for posting these stories about fresh, cutting edge, groundbreaking artists like Coldplay and Sky Ferreira.

why is it sad - a band with actual talent has a long career and sells millions of records, those bands you mentioned will be absolutely irrelevant in three months - you know why? because they have ZERO talent

this show should be fun
they havent played a venue that small in a long while

Not true 10:12, they played Moody in Austin recently and that is even smaller then Beacon, stupid!

HAH. Gaaaaaaay

They actually did an hour-long Live on Letterman show a year or two ago. Ed Sullivan Theatre is pretty small.

I saw them when they were called Foreplay. Now those were tiny shows.

Posted by Anonymous | April 17, 2014 10:32 AM

Last time I saw them was the free MSG show for viva la vida. The last album wasn't even worth free.

10:21, I was talking about small venues in the NY area. There is no need to insult others just because you want to show off you attended SXSW or because you read it somewhere.

skipped their last tour, but I am liking the first two tracks I've heard
hopefully getting tickets for this show won't be as difficult as for others big bands that played there

everything coldplay did after "yellow" sucked. why a band like them "succeeded" and travis, who is VASTLY superior, just hangs around the edges of fame is one of the universe's mysteries....

Posted by Anonymous | April 17, 2014 11:31 AM

^You are kidding, right?
These tickets will be gone in a tenth of a second and command huge prices on the secondary market. This is a scalpers wet dream. Remember, the majority of people wanting to see this show are stupid morons clueless to the concert ticket game and who also have a ton of cash to throw away.

Posted by Anonymous | April 17, 2014 11:34 AM

These brits are all so pasty and bland. Travis, Coldplay, Snow Patrol, Keane, Elbow, Starsailor, Doves...

Pip pip, Cheerio! Can someone tell me the difference between any of these blokes?!

Viva La Vida was a good album. The rest - ehh.

The Mylo Xyloto Tour was unbelievable. I have seen hundreds of shows in my life and walked away thinking that was the best one. Part of it was the Mylo Bands that lit up the entire arena, but most was a band that has matured. Chris Martin has developed Bono's ability to make an arena show feel like a small venue. I know I will catch some heat for this because many feel bands that sell more than 100 cds are automatically bad.

Posted by Anonymous | April 17, 2014 11:52 AM

I am giving Coldplay another chance, but I must say Mylo really blew
Parachutes definitely their best record by far

You know how I know you're gay? You were listening to Coldplay at the gloryhole while wearing macrame shorts.

10:28 thanks for the retro pop culture reference!

rush of blood to the head was a good album, haven't gone out of my way to listen to the newer stuff but have heard the hits, enjoy the song where they sample kraftwerk too, wouldn't mind seeing them live but won't work too hard to do so

You can thank the various lobbyist in the state of NY as to why we can't have paperless ticketing anymore. I'm betting you can even do the "print-at-home" tickets for this. Not that it matters, I'm sure most of these are put on the secondary market from the get go anyways.

Smooth Criminal - woooooo!!!

Posted by Led Teo | April 17, 2014 6:18 PM

Sold out. This will be the hardest ticket of the year. Not that I'm dying to go but I would love to see what they're going go.

Coldplay? Really? What's next, Celine Dion?
