UNDENIABLY the world's biggest band, Coldplay, is heading to Suncorp Stadium in Brisbane on November 21 for the Mylo Xyloto tour.

This will mark the first time the seven-time Grammy Award winners have toured Australia since the overwhelming success of their 2009 Viva La Vida tour and their quick visit to our shores headlining 2011's Splendour in the Grass.
