Information On Coldplay's Free NYC Show Surfaces + Tour Dates

You might recall last month when we mentioned that Coldplay had planned on performing a free concert in NYC at Madison Square Garden on June 23. The band has now posted the information on exactly how to win tickets up on their official website. Since no tickets will be sold, the only way in to this show is to win them, which you can do by signing up by clicking here. Although lots of tickets will obviously be given away, they are also offering one grand prize of an all expenses paid trip to NYC, including tickets to the show, flights and accommodation.

The new Brian Eno & Markus Dravs produced album from Colplay, Viva La Vida, will be in stores on June 17. The band is also embarking on a full blown world wide tour, and we now know the North American dates. Here they are:
