COLDPLAY RETURNS: UK rockers ready to wow Queensland

PERHAPS the world's most popular British band are coming to Queensland, with Coldplay likely to sell-out Brisbane's Suncorp Stadium for a December 6 show.

The blockbuster five-piece will bring their "A Head Full Of Dreams Tour", creating enough buzz to even force Queensland Treasurer Curtis Pitt to start speaking in puns.

"I'm thrilled to see our iconic stadium yet again being the 'Talk' of the town when it comes to international acts," Mr Pitt said.

"Sometimes it feels like 'Us Against the World' when it comes to attracting events like this but there's 'Daylight' between Suncorp Stadium and other venues who'd surely have to look at Brisbane with 'Green Eyes'."

"A sold out event will typically require around 1,500 staff across catering, security, transport, usher and events," he said.

"Local traders, accommodation and transport providers and other entertainment venues all benefit from these big shows."

Brisbane show tickets will go on sale at 3pm on Monday, May 30th.

 

 


Their 2016 will mark the 18th concert at Suncorp Stadium and the second time Coldplay have played the space.

"Chris Martin and the band have a huge following and continue to push the boundaries in terms of their songwriting, performance, technology and musical innovation so I'm sure Queenslanders will flock to see them again," Mr Pitt said.
