As announced on the band’s official website, it will be the first time for Chris Martin, Jonny Buckland, Guy Berryman and Will Champion to play concerts in Taiwan, the Philippines and South Korea. Previously, they performed in Japan in 2014 and Singapore way back in 2009.

In June, there were rumors that Coldplay was set to perform in Indonesia on Nov. 26 at the Indonesian Convention Center (ICE) in BSD, Tangerang, which was later confirmed as a hoax. The band is slated to perform in New Zealand and Australia in December. (kes)
