It has been a year and 9 months since the popular British band, Coldplay embarked on their Music of the Spheres journey across the universe.

They have displayed perfect creativity through their musical craft – a success that can be connected to the experience they have accumulated through more than 20 years of activeness in the music industry.

Today, The Music of the Spheres World Tour is categorized as one of the biggest tours to rock the world, and the band isn’t done yet. They have managed to win the hearts of millions of people across the universe to the point where they have broken so many attendance records in different countries, during the Music of the Spheres World Tour, compared to their previously headlined tours.

One of their major achievements since The Music of the Spheres World Tour began is the supernatural connection they share with their fans whenever they are on stage. When people attend the Coldplay show, they have a feeling of responsibility because they also play their part in ensuring Coldplay’s tour has minimal negative impact on the universe.

The band is currently preparing to take on Asia by the beginning of 2024, with the Philippines being their landing zone in January. The countdown to the end of 2023 has started already, so we believe it is time to remind y’all of the amazing awards Coldplay has been able to add to their records thanks to the Music of the Spheres World Tour.

Before we get into business, you should as well be informed that you can get Coldplay tickets anytime, through a reliable marketplace.

Tour of the Year Award

Coldplay’s Music of the Spheres world tour received the award of “Tour of the Year” from the iHeartRadio Music Awards earlier this year.

Surprisingly, Coldplay was only nominated for this same award during their last headlined tour, which is “A Head Full of Dreams Tour,” back in 2016/2017.

It is only natural to wonder what it is they did differently, that got them the award this time around. We know Coldplay to be a band that adopts new practices – especially for the greater good of humanity.

We’ve seen them implement the use of renewable energy just to reduce the CO2 impact their tour would have on Earth. This is one of the major aspects of touring that a lot of other tourists tend to forget.

Coldplay has also created a unique way for the hearing impaired to enjoy their concerts, which is through the help of “SUBPACs (wearable, bass-delivering vests.” They also have sign language translators to help interpret part of the concerts so that everyone can be carried along.

This is the band going the extra length to give every concert attendee the best experience ever. However, do all these qualify Coldplay for the Tour of the Year award?

The answer is yes. Aside from ensuring that every Coldplay concert is amazing, they do not disintegrate the health of the earth while putting up the best performance. This qualifies them for the Tour of the Year Award.

WhizBang Award

The British band’s Music of the Spheres World Tour also received the Whizbang Award in November this year and from the criteria needed to qualify for this award, it is a deserving one for Coldplay.

On the 10th of November, the British band took to their X charts account to announce their win for the Whizbang award and it made us drive back into their previously headlined tour records, “A Head Full of Dreams,” in 2016/17 and “Ghost Stories” in 2014.

We find that this year with the Music of the Spheres World Tour, is the first time they are winning the Whizbang award in 9 years.

The last time they were featured on the Pollstar Awards, they were not nominated for the Whizbang award, and that was during their 7th headlined tour, “A Head Full of Dreams.”

What changed this year? The thing is Coldplay now has a bigger fan base, compared to previous years. They now have a unique way of connecting and synchronizing every one of their performances with their listeners. This played a critical role in securing Coldplay the Pollstar Awards for the Whizbang category.

The way their fan base changed everything is that Whizbang winners are determined by the public through votes for the nominated artists and bands. At the end of the day, the artist or band with the highest vote wins the category.

Another contributing factor to the winners of Whizbang is the number of publications an artist or band has received from recognized news organizations. Now, for a band that has been breaking attendance records, there was no way Coldplay would miss the Whizbang Award this year.

Best International Concert Award

The Best International Concert award was presented to Coldplay by Ticketmaster France. From Ticketmaster’s archive, before a tour is given such recognition, it would have to sell at least 500k tickets.

Coldplay reportedly sold millions of tickets when the music of the Spheres world tour began early last year. It is as a result of that, that they now have records of vast attendance in almost all of the venues they’ve performed at.

When you look at the history of Coldplay, you’ll realize that they’ve never achieved this recognition, even though this isn’t the first time they have organized the best shows and even sold-out venues in France.

During “A Head Full of Dreams Tour,” Coldplay was globally recognized for “Best Tour,” by IHeartRadio Music Awards, “Best Live Event of the Past 20 Years – Ireland,” by Ticketmaster, and “Best Festival Performance,” by Live UK Music Business Awards.

The fact that they now have this recognition in France means they have rounded up more fans from that region. Taking a peek at the charts, Coldplay has sold close to 4 million albums in France with “Viva la Vida or Death and All His Friends” being certified Diamond having more than 500k certified sales. We guess this explains it.

Most Anticipated Show of the Year (2023) Award

Since 2022 when Coldplay began the Music of the Spheres World Tour, tons of media outlets and blogs carried the news of how millions of fans kept demanding tickets.

The outrageous demand for tickets forced Coldplay to announce more dates for the tour to satisfy demand because there was a clear difference in the number of shows they were willing to put on officially, and the demand from fans in different regions.

The demand clarified that the Music of the Spheres World Tour was heavily anticipated by fans especially the ones in Italy since they are the reason why Music of the Spheres received the award of the most anticipated show of the year by Ticketmaster.

From records pulled out of 2022, Coldplay sold more than 1 million tickets across Europe when the tour started. That number is way less than the current figure. The band reportedly sold more than 9 million tickets worldwide in 2022 and 2023, and the tour is expected to end in November 2024 with more Europe dates fixed in the calendar.

This means that Coldplay will sell more tickets in Europe, and the record as we know it now will change. That being said, Coldplay walking away with the award of the most anticipated show of the year 2023, Italy, was a deserving one.
