Coldplay Announce Manchester Gig

Coldplay are to play a string of UK stadium shows next year, including one in Manchester.

The gigs at major football grounds follow the band's short series of arena gigs which take place next month.

The band, who launched chart-topping album Mylo Xyloto with a show at a major bull ring in Madrid last month, will kick off the dates at Coventry's Ricoh Stadium on May 29.

They then head to London's Emirates Stadium (June 1 and 2), Sunderland's Stadium of Light (7) and Manchester's Etihad Stadium (9).

Tickets will go on sale from 9am next Friday, November 18.
