It’s time for Coldplay fans to get excited. Later this year, the band will head off on its first stadium tour since 2012’s Mylo Xyloto Tour. Coldplay has announced seven U.S. shows of the A Head Full of Dreams World Tour.

The tour kicks off on July 16 at New York’s MetLife Stadium and travels around the country, stopping at popular venues such as Boston’s Gillette Stadium on July 30, and the Rose Bowl in Los Angeles on Aug. 20. Then, the seventh show at San Francisco’s Levi’s Stadium on Sept. 3 marks the finale of the U.S. tour.

A Head Full of Dreams is Coldplay’s seventh album, and since its release, it has topped the charts on iTunes in over 90 countries. Currently, the most popular song on the album is “Adventure of a Lifetime,” which is a dance-y, energetic track about a love that makes you feel alive again.

For those of you who are Citi card members, you will have access to presale tickets starting tomorrow, Jan. 29 at 10 a.m. Visit this website for more information.

General tickets go on sale on Feb. 5 at 10 a.m. and can be found at Ticketmaster or LiveNation.

Laura Curry is a Rutgers University graduate with a Bachelor’s Degree in Journalism and Media Studies. Interviewing bands and writing about music is her passion. She is a frequent concert-goer, whether they’re happening in New Brunswick basements, Asbury Park venues, concert halls in NYC and anywhere in between. Alternative rock is her go-to genre (i.e. Kings of Leon, Cage the Elephant, Foals, The Maine and lots more). When she isn’t writing for The Pop Break, she works at the North Brunswick Public Library, which offers plenty of Fantasy/Adventure novels to quench her love of reading. Additionally, she takes on creative projects from dream catchers and scrapbooks to paintings and jewelry making. She’s always happy to talk about her furry Maine Coon cat Austen and his knack for playing fetch and hide and seek. Just try not to ask about her next career move, because trust me, she’s working on it.
