Coldplay adds extra tour dates as tickets sell out within minutes

A second round of shows has been added across Europe as tickets for Coldplay's 2017 tour sold out in minutes after going on sale on Friday morning.

The British rockers announced they would be hitting the road across the continent with their Head Full Of Dreams tour just days ago.

And, due to overwhelming demand for tickets, the Hymn For The Weekend hitmakers have now added a handful of extra dates.

The only UK gig they are playing next year in this leg of the tour is in Cardiff, at the Principality Stadium, but a second date has been added for the Welsh city due to tickets selling out at top speed.

Second dates for Milan, Gothenburg, Paris and Brussels have also been added to the summer schedule for next year.

So far, Coldplay have taken the tour - which coincides with their seventh studio album of the same name - across Latin America, the US and other European destinations and they will head to Australia later this year.

However, fans in Ireland who missed out on nabbing tickets have been left upset as a second date for Dublin's Croke Park has not been added.

They have taken to Twitter in the hopes that the band will line up another gig in the Irish capital.
