After flirting with EDM on the breakup (sorry, "conscious uncoupling") album Ghost Stories, Coldplay embraces the dance floor wholeheartedly on its latest, A Head Full of Dreams. And you know what? It suits them. The buoyant beats and jittery guitars aren't groundbreaking by any means, but these songs are a nice change of pace from Chris Martin's usual overwrought balladry. The band may claim that this is its last record, but it sound more like a new beginning

This summer, Coldplay is embarking on its first world tour since 2012, hitting stadiums all across North America. In Chicago, the band will play Soldier Field, and it's sure to be a spectacle on the level of the Grateful Dead's grand Fare Thee Well last summer. With all the special guests that appear on the band's latest record (Beyoncé, President Obama, Noel Gallagher) we wouldn't be surprised if some famous folks show up to join Coldplay onstage.

Tickets go on sale on Friday, February 5 at 10am.
