Coldplay plotting break after ‘Mylo Xyloto’ tour wraps up

The guys of Coldplay are ready to take a break after they wrap up the last leg of their tour in support of “Mylo Xyloto” in December. According to Billboard, singer Chris Martin made the big announcement during a gig at Brisbane’s Suncorp Stadium in Australia on Wednesday (Nov. 21), in which he stated, “This is the last big show for three years or so.”

The news of Coldplay’s impending hiatus may have amped up the crowd in Australia, as Billboard reports that fans said Coldplay put on one of the best shows Brisbane had ever seen: “In the afterglow of this show, an online poll conducted by the local Courier Mail newspaper found almost 1,000 music fans rated this show as the city’s best ever stadium performance. Bettering shows by AC/DC, Robbie Williams, Michael Jackson, Bruce Springsteen and other luminaries.”

Next up, Coldplay will return to the U.S. to play a few arena concerts, culminating in the alternative rock group’s much-anticipated New Year’s Eve show with Jay-Z at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York. Tickets for the New Year’s Eve gig are on sale now via Live Nation outlets.
