COLDPLAY have announced that they will be playing at Hampden Park as part of their 2022 world tour.
The Glasgow gig will take place on August 23 next year with tickets due to go on sale next Friday, October 22, at 10am.
The band have said they wanted to make their global tour as “sustainable as possible” and it will be powered with rechargeable batteries fuelled by renewable sources.
The band wrote on Twitter: “Playing live and finding connection with people is ultimately why we exist as a band.
“We’ve been planning this tour for years, and we’re super excited to play songs from across our whole time together.

“At the same time, we’re very conscious that the planet is facing a climate crisis.
“So we’ve spent the last two years consulting with environmental experts to make this tour as sustainable as possible, and, just as importantly, to harness the tour’s potential to push things forward.
“We won’t get everything right, but we’re committed to doing everything we can and sharing what we learn.
“It’s a work in progress and we’re really grateful for the help we’ve had so far.
“If you’d like to come to a show and sing with us, we’re so excited to see you.”
Frontman Chris Martin first revealed in 2019 that they would not launch a globe-trotting tour for their previous album Everyday Life because of environmental concerns.
But, this time their global tour will be supported by a “show battery”, supplied by BMW, which will be recharged using solar power and generators powered by hydrotreated vegetable oil.
Fans will also be able to generate electricity for the concert through a kinetic stadium floor and power bikes.
Coldplay are to release their ninth album, Music Of The Spheres, on Friday.
Tickets can be purchased on Friday October 22nd at 10am via Ticketmaster.
