    Do we have a head full of dreams or did this just happen: Coldplay are finally returning to San Diego!

    The UK pop/rock band and Live Nation announced Friday that in nearly one year to the date, their current “A Head Full of Dreams Tour” will touch down in San Diego: Coldplay will headline Qualcomm Stadium on Oct. 8, 2017. Having already played to 2.5 million fans since March throughout Europe, the U.S. and Latin America, the group is turning their attention back to America’s Finest City as the final date of their fall 2017 leg.

    The show is still a ways off, but it’d be a good idea to snag tickets early if you can. Coldplay have a habit of selling out shows the world over. Citi cardholders will have access to presale tickets starting Monday, Oct. 10 at noon PST through the Citi Private Pass Program, while tickets to the public go onsale on Saturday, Oct. 15 at 10 a.m. PST right here

    For fans, it’s been a long time coming. The band hasn’t played in town since their July 16, 2009 show at Sleep Train Amphitheatre in Chula Vista, but it hasn’t been from lack of demand. They’re one of the biggest rock bands in the world, thanks to their near-countless hit singles (“Yellow,” “Clocks,” “Fix You,” “Viva la Vida,” and “A Sky Full of Stars” just to name a few) and chart-topping albums, starting with 1999’s multi-platinum “Parachutes.” Over the years, they’ve won seven Grammy awards, sold more than 80 million albums worldwide, and even headlined the Super Bowl 50 halftime show this past February.

    It might be rush of blood to the head, but we’re thinking Oct. 8, 2017 can’t get here fast enough!
