JAKARTA – British rock band Coldplay will hold their first-ever concert in Indonesia after much anticipation from the public.
British rock band Coldplay announced their first-ever concert in Indonesia, which will be held at Gelora Bung Karno Stadium, Central Jakarta, on Nov. 15.
The announcement came on Tuesday after numerous teasers from concert pages on social media over the weeks and digital billboards in Jakarta, building up anticipation among the public.
“We’re so excited to announce our first show in your beautiful country,” frontman Chris Martin said in a video on PK Entertainment’s Instagram. “We really hope we see some of you there.”
The show is part of the Music of the Spheres world tour, following the band’s 2021 Grammy-nominated album of the same name. Starting its run in March 2022, the tour has won the famed arena rockers “Favorite Touring Artist” and “Tour of the Year” awards at the 2022 American Music Awards and the 2023 iHeartRadio Music Awards consecutively.
Aside from Indonesia, the band will also have their first-ever show in Kaohsiung, Taiwan, in November. Announced dates across Asia and Australia include Tokyo, Kuala Lumpur and Perth; the latter marks the band’s first return there since 2009.
“TEM Presents is very pleased to be partnering with PK Entertainment as a co-promoter to bring Coldplay Music of the Spheres World Tour Jakarta on Nov. 15,” said co-promoters Sam Tzovolos from TEM Presents and Harry Sudarma from PK Entertainment.
Tickets will be on sale on May 17-18 for BCA cardholders and May 19 for the public at coldplayinjakarta.com.
