Coldplay will be the first act to play the newly renamed Climate Pledge Arena in Seattle, Washington next month.

The concert will take place on October 22, a week after the band release their ninth studio album, ‘Music Of The Spheres,’ their follow-up to 2019’s Grammy-nominated ‘Everyday Life’. R&B group We Are KING will open the show.

Tickets go on sale at 10am PDT (7pm BST) on September 15, with a presale running from 12pm to 11pm on September 14 for fans who register with Ticketmaster’s Verified Fan platform by 9am on September 12.

Amazon – who renamed Seattle’s KeyArena as part of an announcement that it would be the first zero-carbon arena in the world, powered exclusively by renewable energy – will livestream the concert on Prime Video.

The multi-purpose US arena announced Tuesday (September 7) that it will require fans 12 and over to be vaccinated in order to attend, avoiding the state’s 75% cap on shows where vaccination is not mandated.

Country star Eric Church (October 30), opera legend Andrea Bocelli (November 3), Eagles (November 5-6) and a double bill of Evanescence and Halestorm (November 7) are next in line to play the Climate Pledge Arena.

Yesterday (September 8) Coldplay confirmed they will soon be releasing a new track called ‘Weirdo’ as part of a musical.
