The Grammy Award winning band Coldplay officially starts their tour! The British group will present their newest album, Mylo Xyloto, in which frontman Chris Martin describes as; “Its about love, addiction, OCD, escape and working for someone you don’t like.”

Coldplay will take off at the Tampa Bay Times Forum in Florida on June 28th, and make their way up the coast and across the US. Throughout their tour they will be accompanied by Swedish recording artist, Robyn, and Welsh singer-songwriter, Marina and The Diamonds.
