Q.  I heard that they sometimes go home between two concerts, but do they also go to the UK for one or two days when they are touring in America?

The band travel home in between European concerts but it's far too far to commute to work when they're touring the U.S. That said, they do tend to set their base in New York and travel back there when it makes sense to.

Q.  Hi! I don't really have a question, but rather just a msg for you!
I went to Coldplay's concert in Auckland and I uploaded some photos! Feel free to use them if you wanted photos taken from concert-rockers point of view haha.

Your concert was like, perfectly amazing! Thank you! :) x

As you can imagine, there are millions of photos taken over the course of a Coldplay tour and while it's not possible to peruse them all, we do encourage fans to upload their pictures to our website. Please do add yours to the Auckland show.

Q.  Dear Coldplay,
We have just bought the Coldplay Live 2012 Concert film. It is an amazing film, that brings back some wonderful memories. We only went puzzled when you say that you started the tour on Madrid. Did you forgot the extraordinary concert that you did in Oporto on the 18 May??
Paulo and Cristina.

The Madrid show mentioned in the Live 2012 is not the one you're thinking of. The first live gig of the MX era was in Madrid on 26 October 2011. They played there again on 20 May 2012 as part of the full tour.

Once the album was released there were TV, Radio, charity and special perfomances before the tour kicked off proper on 3rd December in Glasgow. Portugal was around the 22nd night of the tour.

Q.  Hello Oracle!

What airline and bus company did the band use while on tour??

Viva La Coldplay!!

Chapman Freeborn Airchartering supplied the planes - when not travelling on passenger scheduled flights - on the last tour and Beat The Street provided the crew bussing.

Q.  I don't get what's the band doing now. And why is their MX tour so short. Can you explain why?

I am getting asked a lot if the band are taking time off. They rarely take time off. It may seem that way because they're off the radar & not out and about performing but they are busy behind the scenes.
They're not in the full steam ahead mode just yet, but plans are being made and steps are being taken.
It's impossible to be on the road permanently (unless you're a DJ) but the MX tour was far from short.
They started performing live during the festival period of 2011 while still putting the final touches to the album. They went out on the road again around the release (October) and didn't finish until December 2012 so that's 18 months of performing live with the MX tour running for over a year of that.

Q.  Hello Oracle! I was just wondering if the boys were planning on doing more dates in Edinburgh & Kircaldy, in early December? I saw this on the website 'concert boom' & I hope it is true! thanks! :)

I can't put it more simply than this: if it's not on OUR website, it's either not confirmed or not happening.
Our live section shows all our current dates and unless or until you read about live dates on this website treat all other reportings as rumour.

I can tell you for a fact that Coldplay are NOT playing any Scottish dates in December nor has that ever been a probability.

The Netherlands is your nearest - check the live section on this site for all current dates.

Q.  Dear Oracle, why is the UK tour so short compared to the US tour? All of the bands tickets are sold out in the MEN as far as I know and so is London plus I live in Liverpool so the only realistic place is Manchester, always wanted to go and see the band live and will now have to wait until their next tour :/

The USA is in the top 5 countries listed by area while the UK is hanging around the #80 mark. There is a vast difference in size of the countries for starters!
By the way, if you've been looking at tickets for Manchester's M.E.N, you definitely won't find tickets as they're playing the Etihad Stadium.
Keep trying, there may be tickets available or other fans may not be able to go so don't give up just yet.

Q.  Hi Oracle,
I recently dug out my old camera and found a beautiful picture from the Vancouver show of the Viva la Vida tour. I really want to share it with people and submit it but I missed the deadline for submitting tour photos to the site. How can I submit it?


There is no deadline to submit tour photos to the site so just click here and upload them.

Q.  Dear Oracle, why isn't Coldplay doing any more live performances online?

They are but sadly Vitor, as you're not in Australia, you won't be able to see it.
There may be more in the future so just keep checking Anchorman's updates.
Oh, do you mean why have we not announced any more live dates on the website?
In that case, it's the same - keep an eye out for updates.
Each tour has different 'legs' such as the European tour, North American tour etc. We don't announced every territory they'll be visiting simultaneously; they will appear gradually over the next year. That's the way we have always done it but that doesn't mean I can say where and when they will be playing. Nothing to report just yet.
