ROSKILDE (VIP-NEWS) — One of the world's greatest rock bands will play Roskilde Festival as this summer's only Scandinavian festival concert.
Coldplay visits Roskilde Festival for the first time since 2003. Back then they proved to be in excellent form on the Orange Stage.
In 2009, the band has chosen to play at only three European festivals –Roskilde, Werchter and Arras.
The four Brits broke through in 2000 with the album Parachutes. Since then they have rubbed shoulders with U2, Oasis and Radiohead. Bands that Coldplay is an obvious successor of with its grandiose arena rock and star-gazing ballads.
A parade of hit singles and best-selling albums have kept Coldplay at the top of the game in the new millennium. Latest release is the EP Prospekt’s March which came out shortly after the album Viva la Vida or Death and All His Friends.
Roskilde Festival has made a strong start. Several thousand festival-goers have already bought a ticket – even before the first band was announced. The festival organizers will announce more acts in the coming months.
