New Tickets Released for Coldplay’s Only New Zealand Show

Final tickets and VIP Packages are on sale now at

The A Head Full Of Dreams Tour has already taken COLDPLAY across Latin America, Europe and the US. The band has enjoyed rave reviews wherever they have performed - “A stadium rock band at the top of their game,” as The Guardian put it.

In what will be one of the concert highlights of the year, Coldplay will wrap up their 2016 dates by performing to packed stadiums in Auckland, Brisbane and two nights in both Sydney and Melbourne.

UK singer-songwriter Lianne La Havas, who is joining Coldplay as their special guest in New Zealand and Australia, has already toured with Coldplay through Latin America and Europe, marking the first stadium shows of her career. Also joining the line up is Australian Jess Kent who burst onto the scene with her catchy debut single, Get Down, described by triple j as “One of the most infectious tracks of 2015”.

This is Coldplay’s first world tour since their Mylo Xyloto Tour, which included Australian and New Zealand shows in November 2012. The A Head Full Of Dreams World Tour kicked off with a record-breaking stadium run in Latin America in March/April and saw the band perform four sold out nights at London’s Wembley Stadium in June.

A Head Full Of Dreams (out now through Warner Music New Zealand) is Coldplay’s seventh album, featuring singles ‘Adventure Of A Lifetime’, ‘Hymn for the Weekend’, ‘Up&Up’ and ‘A Head Full Of Dreams’. Since its December 2015 release, the album has reached #1 on iTunes in more than 90 countries and sold more than four million copies. It has also helped Coldplay to maintain their position as the band with most worldwide listeners on Spotify throughout 2016.
