Coldplay Announce Yet Another Extensive North American Tour, Become Globetrotting Puppets

Coldplay Announce Yet Another Extensive North American Tour, Become Globetrotting Puppets
After announcing an initial string of tour dates last month, Coldplay have revealed the band's full North American schedule for their summer tour. Pencilled into their calendar are now several more Canadian dates, including stops in Vancouver, Toronto, Calgary, Edmonton and Winnipeg, as well as many more down in the U.S.

As previously reported, the tour is still in support of the band's 2008 effort, Viva La Vida or Death and All His Friends, and, for much of the trek, features openers Kitty, Daisy & Lewis, Elbow and Amadou & Mariam, who also have some headlining dates. There's still no word on any new Coldplay releases, but the band do have some new puppets, which seem to be crisscrossing the globe. Seriously, check 'em out. They're kind of creepy, like that doll of Estelle Costanza from Seinfeld.
