Coldplay fans in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia are in for a treat, as the rumours of them arriving on local shores for the Malaysian leg of their Music of the Spheres World Tour 2023 has been officially confirmed by events company Live Nation Malaysia.
Announced earlier today on the company’s official Instagram account, the British hitmakers are expected to land on local shores come 22 November 2023.
Coldplay will be performing in Malaysia this November
What makes this all the more special is the fact that their upcoming performance is slated to be their very-first interaction with local fans in person. The band will be filling out seats at National Stadium Bukit Jalil, with tickets expected to be in high demand.
Initial speculation into the band’s concert in Malaysia was previously fuelled by a video uploaded by local event and artist manager Iman Tang, featuring an advertisement for Coldplay’s world tour playing on a screen located right above the Pavilion KL crosswalk.
While the advertisement did not specifically mention Malaysia, Iman Tang captioned the video with “Finally the rumours are over! Get ready guys in November 2023! Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia 🇲🇾,” implying that the band will indeed perform in the country.
A subsequent update from Coldplay’s official Instagram has also confirmed their Kuala Lumpur concert, alongside dates for Tokyo, Kaohsiung, Jakarta, and Perth.
