Coldplay Reveals Intimate Shows for ‘Ghost Stories’ Launch

Coldplay Ghost Stories Intimate Tour

Coldplay announced a small number of live shows in support of their new album, Ghost Stories.

The rock group will play six “intimate” shows which will take them from Germany, to the United States, France, Japan and the UK. The first show will be played on April 25 in Cologne, Germany and then will head to New York, Los Angeles, Paris, Tokyo and finish in London on July 1.

Tickets for the Cologne show will go on sale April 19, while ticket information for the remaining five shows will be emailed exclusively to subscribers to the band’s mailing list at Coldplay.com.

After their Mylo Xyloto tour in 2012, Chris Martin said that they wouldn’t play big shows for a while. That seems to remain true as these six shows are being played in smaller-capacity venues.

Ghost Stories, which is the band’s sixth album, will be released on May 19.
