Following Grammy ceremony, Coldplay will resume its world tour, which winds its way back to North America in July.
So far, the British alt-rockers have 13 US shows on the books and a stop in Toronto, though additional dates are in the works, according to a press release. The North American leg is currently set to kick off July 10 in Ridgefield, WA, and cover cities from coast to coast through Aug. 9. The outing, detailed below, is sandwiched between tours of Japan, Australia, New Zealand and Europe.
Meanwhile, Coldplay is set to perform at Sunday's (2/8) Grammy Awards ceremony, where the group is up for a whopping seven trophies: Record of the Year, Song of the Year and Best Pop Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocals for "Viva La Vida"; Album of the Year and Best Rock Album for "Viva La Vida or Death and All His Friends"; and Best Rock Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocals and Best Rock Song for "Violet Hill." The bandmates already have four Grammys under their belts.
The award-winning band's 2012 tour, their first in four years, will get underway April 17 in Edmonton, Alberta, and slowly wind its way from the West Coast to the East over the course of five months. A two-night stand May 1-2 in Los Angeles is also on the trek, which currently wraps up three months later with an Aug. 11 performance in St. Paul, MN.
