Coldplay is here. In support of their third #1 album Mylo Xyloto released this October, Coldplay has announced a North American tour in 2012. Their fifth album Mylo Xyloto topped the music charts and sold nearly half a million copies in the first week. The British alternative rock band is also nominated for Best Rock Performance and Best Pop Duo/Group Performance at the 2012 Grammys. The Mylo Xyloto Tour includes 21 stops – 16 in the U.S. and 5 in Canada.

NOTE: Most tickets go on sale December 17th.

There is one other great news. Coldplay will appear on PBS’s Austin City Limits (ACL) on December 31st at 11PM ET. PBS decided to do a first ever 90-minute New Year’s Eve Special Episode featuring Coldplay. Don’t have a TV? That’s fine. You can watch it on-demand at pbs.org.
