Coldplay to take song requests for ‘A Head Full Of Dreams’ tour

Band are due to play four dates at Wembley Stadium next summer

Coldplay have revealed they are taking song requests from their fans for their forthcoming ‘A Head Full Of Dreams’ tour.

Frontman Chris Martin has said that while the band have finalised most of their setlist, they have left part of it open for members of the audience to submit their favourite tracks.

The band are due to play four dates at Wembley Stadium next summer as part of their UK tour from June 15-19, 2016. The tour is the band’s first in three years and follows the release of new album ‘A Head Full Of Dreams’.

“What we will do on this tour is almost like a request segment,” Martin told The Sun. “We’d ask people to give us a reason why they want us to play that song so there is a purpose behind why we play it.

“I think we want to make it like a passport photobooth, so you go in and say, ‘I am Derek, I would like you to play “The Hardest Part”…’ So for example, if we are going to play a song like ‘Spies’ off ‘Parachutes’, it will be lovely to play it and say, ‘This is for Helen from Bolton as this reminds her of her dad.’ That is a bad example and not a real one.”

He added: “We’re enjoying playing really old songs. This tour will finally have a setlist where we feel good about it from start to finish.”

Coldplay will play the following UK live dates in support of the album next summer:

Manchester Etihad Stadium (June 4, 5)
Glasgow Hampden Park (June 7)
London Wembley Stadium (June 15, 16,18, 19)

In addition to their world tour, 2016 will also see Coldplay perform live at the Super Bowl half-time show.

Footage recently emerged of Martin’s daughter Apple playing guitar and singing. The 11-year-old was performing with a choir of other girls, all playing guitars and singing ‘Keegan’s Christmas’ by New York alt-rock outfit Marcy Playground.
