COLDPLAY have announced two dates for Dublin in 2024 as part of their record-breaking world tour.

After a sellout run of European stadium shows this year, the Croke Park dates have been confirmed as August 29 and August 30.

Irish fans won't have long to wait for the chance to get tickets, with the pre-sale for both dates going live next Tuesday, July 25.

Demand is certain to be high as the Music Of The Spheres World Tour has already sold 7.5m tickets since it first started in 2022, and is now the record for any tour lasting over two years.

Accolades for the massive live shows have already picked up accolades including Favourite Touring Artist at the 2022 AMAs and Tour of The Year at the 2023 iHeartRadio Awards.

Frontman Chris Martin famously declared before that he wouldn't undertake such large tours until it could be done in a more environmentally friendly way.

Backing up this claim, a report by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology claimed the current tour has so far produced 47 per cent les CO2 emissions than their previous stadium tour in 2016/17 on a show-by-show basis, with five million trees also planted around the world, one for each concert goer so far.
