Coldplay London 2022: Why did band reschedule Wembley gig, when is the new date, is my ticket still valid?

The band have rescheduled their band in response to an Aslef tube strike

One of the most famous bands this century, Coldplay, have announced that they have rescheduled their Wembley gig.

The show, which was part of their huge ‘Music of the Spheres tour’ was due to take place in mid-August, but due to circumstances outside of their control, they have had to shift the date.

Here’s what you need to know.

When is the rescheduled date?

Coldplay have moved the date of their Wembley performance from Friday, 19 August to Sunday, 21 August.

Why did Coldplay reschedule their show?

The band have rescheduled their show because of the planned industrial action on the London Underground, which is due to take place on the day they were originally scheduled to play at Wembley.

The strike is solely for tube workers, and would have caused many people problems, and potentially would have prohibited people from going.

In a statement released by the band, they said: “Due to planned industrial action on the London Underground network, Coldplay’s Wembley Stadium concert on Friday 19 August has had to be rescheduled for Sunday 21 August 2022.”

Are tickets still valid?

In the statement released by the ‘Yellow’ crooners, they announced that all tickets purchased for the Friday show will be valid for the Sunday show.

What do I do if I can’t go?

The rescheduling now may mean people can’t go, but if you are unable to go you will not lose out on any money.

The band said “Any ticket holders who are unable to attend the rescheduled show can get a full refund on their ticket and are requested to contact their point of purchase before 6pm on Wednesday, 10 August”.

Will more tickets be made available?

Tickets that are to be returned will go on general sale at 9:30am on Friday, 12 August on Ticketmaster and Live Nation.

Tickets for the original date were initially sold out.

Will other dates be rescheduled?

The band are scheduled to play a string of shows around the time, some of which fall on dates when there are national rail strikes, but this is the only show that has been rescheduled.
