Coldplay will launch its first North American tour in nearly three years this spring. Fans in Massachusetts will have to wait till the summer when the English rockers hit Boston for a show at the TD Garden on Sunday, July 29. Tickets for the show, which range in price from $49.50 to $115, will go on sale Saturday at 10 a.m. through Ticketmaster.

The band will be touring in support of its new album, Mylo Xyloto. The band’s fifth studio effort has scored the most #1 rankings of any album this year worldwide, topping the charts in 34 countries to date. It also hit the No. 1 spot in all 35 iTunes stores around the world, breaking the record for the highest number of download sales in one week – a milestone Coldplay first achieved with the release of 2008’s Viva la Vida or Death and All His Friends, which was the #1 selling album worldwide of 2008, according to IFPI.

Mylo Xyloto‘s first two singles have received Grammy Award nominations – “Every Teardrop is a Waterfall” for Best Rock Performance and Best Rock Song, and “Paradise” for Best Pop Duo/Group Performance. “Charlie Brown”, Coldplay’s next single, will go to radio later this month. A video of the band performing the song at summer festivals is streaming below.

“Austin City Limits”, the world’s longest-running live music television series, will ring in the New Year with a performance by Coldplay. The first-ever ACL New Year’s Eve special – a rare 90-minute episode – can be seen on PBS stations nationwide on Saturday, December 31, at 11 p.m.
