The trek will get underway May 30 in Atlanta and wrap June 27 at New York's famed Radio City Music Hall. Beforehand, Coldplay will descend on New York on April 9 to make up a February concert cut short by illness.
Coldplay will be touring in support of its Nettwerk/Parlophone debut "Parachutes," which is No. 65 on The Billboard 200 this week, and features the single "Yellow," which is No. 10 on Billboard's Modern Rock Tracks chart. Grandaddy is playing behind last year's acclaimed V2 release "The Sophtware Slump."
