Coldplay announce UK stadium tour with Jay-Z

Band set for giant UK dates next year

Coldplay have announced a series of 2009 UK stadium shows.

The band will play a trio of dates in their native Britain next September, having previously been forced to rule out a proposed performance at Knebworth due to scheduling issues.

Jay-Z will support the band at all the dates.

They play:

Manchester Old Trafford Cricket Ground (September 12)

Glasgow Hampden Park (16)

London Wembley Stadium (19)

Tickets go on sale at 9.30am on Friday (November 28).
