Coldplay concert chronology

A Head Full of Dreams Tour[1] was the seventh concert tour undertaken by British alternative rock band Coldplay, launched in support of their namesake seventh studio album A Head Full of Dreams. Marking the band's return to large-scale venues, after the brief and intimate Ghost Stories Tour, the tour visited stadiums and arenas across five continents. A Head Full of Dreams Tour boasted extensive laser light and pyrotechnic visuals similar to the Mylo Xyloto Tour, and also saw a reappearance of the Xylobands as a central part of the show's visual design.

The tour consisted of eight legs, with a total of 122 shows across Latin America, where they performed for the first time since the Viva la Vida Tour, Europe, North America, where they embarked on their very first stadium tour of the United States, Oceania, and Asia. The first show of the tour was held at the Estadio Ciudad de La Plata in La Plata, Argentina, on 31 March 2016 and concluded at the same venue on 15 November 2017. Grossing $523,033,675, the tour is currently the third highest-grossing concert tour in history.[2] A live album covering the tour, which was recorded during several shows,[3] as well as a concert film filmed around the world will be released.[4]

Promotion

In November 2015, Coldplay announced the Latin American and European legs of the "A Head Full of Dreams Tour" through their official website, with 28 stadium shows confirmed across 14 countries in Europe and Latin America the next year.[5] On 7 December 2015, a fourth and final date at Wembley Stadium, on Wed, 15 June 2016 was announced by the band.[6] The following day, while being interviewed on The Late Late Show with James Corden, the band announced that the tour would also visit Asia and North America.[7]

On 7 April 2016, Coldplay announced 12 new arena dates in the United States.[8] On 29 May 2016, the band will play a homecoming gig in Exeter in England as part of BBC Radio 1's Big Weekend.[9][10] They have also been announced as the first headliners at Glastonbury 2016, performing on Sunday 26 June. This will be the fourth time they've headlined the festival and sets a record for the most number of times a headliner has played.[11] It was also announced that this would be their only festival performance in 2016. However, two more festivals are now on their tour agenda. While nothing has been announced nor confirmed as of yet, Coldplay has expressed an interest to visit less-visited countries during concert tours, such as India, Bangladesh, Nepal and a large amount of Asia, as well as Africa. No dates have been set currently.[12] Further tour dates will be announced after the release of dates of Leg 2 in Europe. On 6 October 2016, it has been confirmed on Twitter that they will visit the United States again and Canada in the Summer of 2017. On 15 November 2016, the band posted a teaser on Facebook announcing an Asian leg in 2017 that would visit Singapore, Philippines, Taiwan, South Korea, and Japan.[13] A week later, Thailand was included in the leg.[14] On 16 March 2017, Coldplay announced extra North American dates in Toronto, Edmonton, and Pasadena.[15]

On 25 August 2017, the Houston concert scheduled that night at NRG Stadium was originally postponed due to Hurricane Harvey. However, on 29 September, Coldplay decided to cancel the concert due to scheduling conflicts with the venue. As compensation, the band announced that ticket holders will receive priority access for the next time they play in Houston.[16]

Opening acts

Lianne La Havas (left) followed Coldplay for the Latin American and European legs of the tour as its main supporting act, while Alessia Cara (right) served as main support during the North American leg.

For each of the main tour dates, two supporting acts, the first billed as the "opener", and the second as the "main support", performed before the concert.

British folk and soul singer-songwriter Lianne La Havas served as the tour's main supporting act for all the shows during the Latin America leg, the Oceania leg and a majority of the European leg of the tour. Her appearances on the tour follow her own 10-month tour in support of her July 2015-released album Blood, which had ended two weeks before the start of the A Head Full of Dreams Tour.[17] It marked the first stadium shows of Havas' career, and her first performances in Latin America.[18][19] The opening acts during the Latin America leg featured local talent, including Argentinian singer and plastic artist Hana Ciliberti, and Mexican pop rock artist Ximena Sariñana, who performed at the shows in Mexico City.[20]

Canadian R&B and pop artist Alessia Cara performed as a supporting act on the A Head Full of Dreams Tour, serving as the opener on a majority of the shows during the European leg and as the main support during the North American leg.[21] Cara, who turned 21 years old during the tour, had launched into mainstream success in 2015 with "Here",[22][23] and had been performing her first concert tour in the months trailing the A Head Full of Dreams Tour, in support for her debut studio album Know-It-All.[24] Cara, however, skipped three dates on the tour. Swiss artist Lea Lu occupied the opening slot during the show of 11 June in Zurich, Switzerland,[25] while British rock band Reef will[needs update] perform during the tour's final two London shows.[26] In lieu of La Havas' absence during the show of 11 June in Zurich and the show of 3 July in Stockholm, Sweden, British recording artists Foxes and Birdy served as main support respectively.[27]

Tove Lo (left) was the main supporting act for Coldplay's 2017 European and North American legs, while Dua Lipa (right) supported the band during their 2017 Latin American leg.

Australian musician Jess Kent performed as the main support for the Oceanian leg and did so again for the Asian leg, starting with the show of 31 March 2017 in Singapore.[28] Japanese rock band Radwimps opened the show of 19 April in Tokyo.[29]

For the 2017 European leg, English duo AlunaGeorge performed as the main support during the Munich, Lyon, Hanover, Brussels, and Dublin shows, while Swedish singer Tove Lo, whom Coldplay has collaborated with for a song called "Fun", served the remainder of the leg as the main support with the exception of the Gothenburg and Cardiff shows, where Danish band Mew and English band Embrace served, respectively. The opener for the leg was Lyves, with the exception of the German shows, where native singer Femme Schmidt performed. For the 2017 North American leg, AlunaGeorge performed as the main support for the August dates with Ethiopian-English singer Izzy Bizu opening, while Tove Lo served as the main support for the September and October dates with Alina Baraz opening.[30]

English singer Dua Lipa, whom frontman Chris Martin has collaborated with for a song called "Homesick" from her self-titled debut album, performed as the main support for the tour's final leg in Brazil and Argentina in November 2017. English musician Jon Hopkins, a frequent collaborator of the band since Viva la Vida or Death and All His Friends, will also perform as the leg's opener.[31]

Concert synopsis

A view of the stage at Wembley Stadium, London, during one of the four sold out concerts.

Similar to the Mylo Xyloto Tour, the A Head Full of Dreams Tour is typically split into five parts; an introduction on the main "A-stage", a performance on the "B-stage", a second set on the A-stage, a set on the outward "C-stage", and finally an encore on the A-stage. Songs played on the A-stage are accompanied by the show's full laser light and pyrotechnic visuals, while performances on the B-stage are not accompanied by such, and songs played on the C-stage are strictly acoustic performances.

Shows typically feature over 20 songs on the setlist, many of which played differently from the recorded versions of the songs, usually combined with intros and outros from other tracks. For example, "Paradise", which closes the opening set of the show, is played with a remix of the song by Tiësto as an outro, while "Fix You" is played with the instrumental background from "Midnight". A majority of the songs played during the tour come from the namesake album A Head Full of Dreams, and from the band's previous studio album, Ghost Stories, though songs from the band's earlier discography, such as Mylo Xyloto and A Rush of Blood to the Head are routinely played and shuffled across the setlist between shows. Frontman Chris Martin expressed satisfaction with the setlist, stating that the band were "enjoying playing really old songs", and that the tour "will finally have a setlist where we feel good about it from start to finish."[33]

Apart from the band's own songs, covers of songs by other artists were also performed, with "Heroes" by David Bowie being a staple on the setlist in 2016, during the middle of the second A-stage set. The cover is a tribute to the late Bowie, whose death in January 2016 had been massively publicized by both the media and music fans alike. According to Martin, he and Bowie were good friends, claiming that Bowie even had assigned the nickname of "Sticky Martinez" to him.[34] The relationship between the band and Bowie musically, however, was not as profound; Bowie had earlier rejected a collaboration for Lhuna, a charity single released by the band in 2008 featuring Australian singer-songwriter Kylie Minogue, after deeming the song was simply "not one of [their] best".[35] Prior to the start of the tour, Martin also took to covering Bowie's songs, such as "Life on Mars?" on The Howard Stern Show and The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon in the weeks following Bowie's death.[36][37] The band also occasionally plays "'Til Kingdom Come"/"Ring of Fire", a combination between the X&Y song and the classic Johnny Cash song, which the band had initially conceived for the Twisted Logic Tour and also appeared in the setlist during the Viva la Vida Tour and Mylo Xyloto Tour. Occasionally, impromptu moments, usually during "A Sky Full of Stars" may also lead to an additional song being performed, as was the case during the band's performance of 5 April at the Estadio Nacional de Lima in Peru, where Chris Martin sang "Happy Birthday to You" for his son Moses.[38] Following the death of musician Prince in April 2016, the band covered several of his songs as tributes: "Raspberry Beret",[39] "Sometimes It Snows in April" with Lianne La Havas,[40] and "Nothing Compares 2 U" with James Corden.[41] Following the death of musician Tom Petty in October 2017, the band covered his song "Free Fallin' as tribute, with Peter Buck at Portland and Corden at Pasadena; they also dedicated to him their song "Everglow".

Another staple of the setlist is a segment of the show known as the "Fan Dedication Song", where a song is requested by fans attending particular concerts on the tour, through social media service Instagram, for the band to play during their C-stage set.[42] The segment was described by Martin as being similar to a photo booth, stating, "we'd ask people to give us a reason why they want us to play that song so there is a purpose behind why we play it."[33][43]
