Coldplay announced a string of U.S. tour dates in support of their seventh LP, A Head Full of Dreams. The record was released released in December of last year and peaked at number 2 on the Billboard 200 chart. A list of dates can be seen below.

The tour–which finds Coldplay playing some of the country’s largest football stadiums–will be the band’s first since 2012, when they traveled in support of Mylo Xyloto. The band did not tour in support of their sixth album, Ghost Stories, instead playing only a handful of shows.

Chris Martin recently told British newspaper The Sun (via NME) that Coldplay will take requests for their upcoming tour, adding that the band intends to create a “passport photo booth” where fans go on camera and state their purpose behind wanting to hear a specific song.

In a 2014 BBC1 interview (via Billboard), Martin hinted that A Head Full of Dreams might be the band’s last album for a while. While his comments remain ambiguous, the tour could be fans’ last chances to see the band perform before a lengthy break.
