Coldplay will visit the United States in mid-August to preview songs from its upcoming album, A Rush Of Blood To The Head, which arrives August 27 from Capitol Records. Seven shows are currently scheduled, all in major cities, beginning August 6 at the Paradise in Boston.
Coldplay has already started making live appearances surrounding its second album back home in the U.K., including a show Monday (July 1) at the Glastonbury Festival. That show showcased both new songs and highlights from the band’s 2000 debut, Parachutes. The complete set list was: “Politik,” “Shiver,” “Spies,” “Daylight,” “Trouble,” “One I Love,” “Don’t Panic,” “Everything’s Not Lost,” “See You Soon,” “God Put A Smile Upon Your Face,” “Yellow,” “The Scientist,” and the encore of “Clocks,” “In My Place,” and “Life Is For Living.”
