The seven-time grammy award winner British rock band Coldplay will be arriving in the country in the last week of November this year.

As early as last year, Coldplay has been rumored to be playing their music in Asia but without any reliable confirmation of a possible Manila stopover. The confirmation was finally brought by a brand manager of Globe Telecom.

Coldplay's visit in Manila will be a part of its "A Head Full Of Dreams Tour", which is their seventh world tour.

Die-hard fans raving online

As early as now, die-hard fans are raving on the upcoming concerts of two of the world's highly acclaimed musical groups, with some even willing to "sell their kidneys" alluding to the hard fact that ticket prices for the two concerts will be sky-high.


Some are even willing to postpone their out of country trips:


And some unabashedly asking for some funds to the other half of the phenomenal on-screen loveteam of the moment:


Madonna’s “Rebel Heart” earned $ 4.9 million last February

Global music artists found a new haven to play their music in the Philippines over the last few years due to unwavering interest of the Filipino crowd in patronizing foreign acts. Madonna's sold-out, two-night concert last February accumulated a total of USD 4,956,105 (PHP 228 million pesos) and was attended by 15,710 people.

The upcoming concerts are expected to rake in millions as Coldplay and of course, U2 which is one of the best-selling touring acts in the world has an extremely loyal fan base in the country.

U2 alone holds a 170 million total of records sold in a career spanning four decades already. The twenty year old Coldplay band has a strong 80 million records sold under its name.
