But not to worry, the tour will still go on as planned, just a few weeks later than expected.
Coldplay has been forced to postpone the start of its North American tour by two weeks because of unspecified “production delays which mean that the show simply won’t be ready” for its planned June 29 kickoff in Philadelphia.
The itinerary will now begin with a July 14-15 stand in Los Angeles; it was to close August 4 in Chicago but will instead wrap that day in Boston. Tickets for the scrapped dates will be valid for the new ones, but refunds are also available at points of purchase. An updated itinerary is posted on the band’s Web site (http://www.coldplay.com).
Coldplay’s previously announced free shows in London (June 16), Barcelona (June 17) and New York (June 23) will go on as planned, as will a July 27 show at the first Pemberton Festival in British Columbia.
