Coldplay – coming to Vancouver (June 20, 2009)

I just heard on the radio the other day that Coldplay will be performing on June 20th at GM Place this summer as part of their North American tour. Their most recent album, Viva La Vida, is nominated for a JUNO award for International Album of the Year. Tickets (from Ticketmaster) go on sale to the public this Saturday, March 14th at 10am with prices ranging from $49.50 to CA $97.50. Presale is on Friday March 13th at 10am but I haven’t found the password yet. It might be “yellow” but that could just be online speculation. Regardless, I have a feeling it will sell out. Tracklist for the album is below:

1. Life in Technicolor
2. Cemeteries of London
3. Lost!
4. 42
5. Lovers in Japan/Reign of Love
6. Yes
7. Viva La Vida
8. Violet Hill
9. Strawberry Swing
10. Death and All His Friends
