The multi-purpose US arena announced Tuesday (September 7) that it will require fans 12 and over to be vaccinated in order to attend, avoiding the state’s 75% cap on shows where vaccination is not mandated.
Country star Eric Church (October 30), opera legend Andrea Bocelli (November 3), Eagles (November 5-6) and a double bill of Evanescence and Halestorm (November 7) are next in line to play the Climate Pledge Arena.
Yesterday (September 8) Coldplay confirmed they will soon be releasing a new track called ‘Weirdo’ as part of a musical.
Speaking on the You Made It Weird with Pete Holmes podcast, Chris Martin revealed: “We have a new song called ‘Weirdo’ which has been waiting to come out for a long time because we’re doing a kinda musical and this song has been waiting for that.”
