Top Summer Tours 2012: Madonna, Radiohead, Coldplay
Also: Springsteen, Aerosmith, One Direction, The Beach Boys, Drake and more
Sure, “Mylo Xyloto” didn’t resonate with audiences like “Viva La Vida,” but Coldplay remains one of the most vibrant live acts around. Chris Martin’s spastic dancing is worth the price of admission, and, who knows... maybe Willie Nelson will join them for “The Scientist.” The band is in North America now, and returns again in late June following a European swing.
