Marina and the Diamonds, Robyn, Frank Ocean, Ash to support Coldplay on stadium tour
The acts will play with the 'Mylo Xyloto' band across Europe this summer
Coldplay have roped in an all-star line-up to support them on their forthcoming European stadium tour.
Marina And The Diamonds, Robyn, Frank Ocean and Ash will all play with the 'Mylo Xyloto' band from May to September across the continent.
Robyn and Rita Ora will play on most of the band's UK dates on the tour, which run from May 29 at Coventry's Ricoh Stadium until June 10 at Manchester's City of Manchester Stadium, with three shows at London's Emirates Stadium set for June 1,2 and 4. The June 1 show will be the only UK show to feature support from Marina And The Diamonds and Ash.
Odd Future member Frank Ocean will join Marina and the Diamonds on Coldplay's August and September dates, starting in Copenhagen on August 28 and finishing up in Hanover on September 22.
Marina And The Diamonds will release her second album 'Electra Heart' on April 30 before embarking on a UK tour in May in support of the album, playing eight shows across the UK. The gigs begin at Manchester Cathedral on May 4 and run until May 15, when the singer headlines Cardiff Coal Exchange.
Coldplay frontman Chris Martin recently admitted that he regrets calling their fifth album 'Mylo Xyloto', saying that the title is causing him a headache because it confuses fans.
