Government officials and concert promoters have tried their best, and they have succeeded in bringing Coldplay to Jakarta for their first ever concert in Indonesia.
Following weeks of rumors and teasing, the British alternative rockers announced their Nov. 15, 2023 Jakarta date in a video uploaded to concert promoter PK Entertainment’s Instagram this morning, featuring a respectable attempt at “apa kabar?” by Chris Martin.
Coldplay will perform at the Gelora Bung Karno (GBK) Stadium as part of their Music of the Spheres World Tour to promote their ninth studio album of the same name, which was released in 2021.
Tickets will go on sale exclusively at www.coldplayinjakarta.com. More information on prices, ticket categories and layouts will be available soon.
The Jakarta concert is a new addition to the Asia and Oceania leg of the tour, which is scheduled to wrap up in Kuala Lumpur on Nov. 22.
Coldplay is one of the most popular and successful bands in the world, with over 100 million records sold and seven Grammy Awards. Some of their hit songs include Yellow, The Scientist, Viva la Vida, Fix You, A Sky Full of Stars, and Hymn for the Weekend. The band consists of Chris Martin (lead vocals, piano), Jonny Buckland (lead guitar), Guy Berryman (bass guitar), and Will Champion (drums).
