Coldplay sets U.S. summer tour
Fourteen dates confirmed, more to be announcedNEW YORK -- Coldplay will kick off a North American summer tour July 10 at the Amphitheater at Clark County in Portland, Ore. So far, 14 dates are set through early August, with more to be announced.
Tickets for concerts in San Diego, Toronto, Charlotte, N.C. and Raleigh, N.C., go on sale Feb. 13. Tampa, Fla., and Houston go up Feb. 21. All other dates go on sale Feb. 14.
The British band is up for seven Grammys on Sunday -- including album of the year for 2008's "Viva La Vida or Death and All His Friends" and song of the year for "Viva La Vida."
The foursome will perform during the CBS telecast and be featured during "60 Minutes" preceding the show.
The Grammys could prove interesting in an unexpected way for the band, which is being sued for copyright infringement by guitarist Joe Satriani. Satriani's lawyer told Fox News that his team will attempt to serve Coldplay with legal documents at the event and will have a camera crew on hand to film what transpires.
Coldplay will tour Japan, the U.K. and Australia directly after the Grammys. With four nods, the band co-leads the list of BRIT Award nominees. The honors will be given out Feb. 18 in London.
