Incoming: Coldplay at Verizon Wireless Amphitheater

International megastars/activists/relatively faceless British dudes other than their lead singer/producers of pleasingly mellow tunes Coldplay can't seem to stay away from Orange County, getting all up in our area once more on July 19 at Verizon Wireless Amphitheater in Irvine, less than a year after their Nov. 25 show at the Honda Center in Anaheim, whre that picture up there was taken (read my review here!). Show goes on sale a week from today (March 23), and is in addition to the already announced July 18 show at the Home Depot Center in in Carson. Coldplay's live show is so tight, ostentatious (in a fun way!) and energetic, that even those skeptical about their material would more than likely enjoy seeing them--I mean, I was skeptical, and I dug it, for whatever that's worth (probably not very much). Ticket prices aren't yet available, but they're probably pretty high, so consider that earlier recommendation to be a fairly mild one.
