PHOENIX — Grammy Award-winning rock band Coldplay is inviting its Arizona fans to “Viva La Vida” next May when it makes a tour stop at State Farm Stadium in Glendale.

The British band will play at the home of the Arizona Cardinals on May 3 as part of the Music of the Spheres Tour.

Coldplay will be joined by singer H.E.R. on the stop.

Presale packages go on sale Wednesday and general public tickets will be available Friday at 10 a.m.

It’ll be Coldplay’s first metro Phoenix stop since August 2016, when the band played at Gila River Arena in Glendale.

The band has only performed five times in the Valley, according to setlist.fm.

Coldplay released its ninth studio album, aptly titled “Music of the Spheres,” last week.

The British rockers have accumulated seven Grammys wins, most recently racking up three awards in 2008.

Coldplay headlined the Super Bowl 50 halftime show in Santa Clara, California, in 2016.

We want to hear from you.
