COLDPLAY tribute act Coldplace will return to York Barbican on March 23 on their second British tour.

"We were astounded at how well tickets sales went last year for our very first theatre tour and elated by the response we received," says the Grimsby band's lead singer, Shane Croft, who played the Barbican previously in December 2017.

"We never expected it to be as popular as it was, and so much so that we had to organise a second date for a venue just before Christmas, as we received disappointed messages from fans saying they didn’t manage to grab tickets in time before the first one sold out."

Coldplace decided to take the plunge last year by putting together a full theatre tour. "The majority of tribute bands nowadays perform at the usual music venues across the country," says Croft. "Although still very reputable listings to have, we decided to bring something a little bit different to the tribute scene and to produce more of a visual show."

Consequently, Coldplace have re-created Coldplay's A Head Full Of Dreams show as precisely as possible, incorporating confetti canons, pyrotechnics and laser lights.

"We have all been itching to bring the real Coldplay show to our loyal fans for a few years now, and have never been able to fulfil this up until recently, and we’re really excited for you all to see it in its full glory, with no limitations," says Croft. "We have made a few changes and updates to the show we performed last year, so be prepared to be blown away."
