Coldplay for U.S. iTunes Festival

Brit rockers Coldplay have been confirmed for an exciting performance at this year's South By South West festival in American on March 11 at ACL Live at the Moody Theatre.

Their live set will take place on the first ever night of the U.S. iTunes Festival, which has previously been limited to just the UK, and will be supported by the likes of Imagine Dragons and London Grammar. 

The band's drummer, Will Champion, explained that they're all so excited to perform at the event: "We're really looking forward to the first ever iTunes Festival in the US, and are thrilled to be asked to play on the opening night. It’s a great honour for our band and we hope everyone has a fantastic time."

Each concert at the American iTunes Festival will be available to be streamed online and other artists who will take part include Keith Urban, DJ Zedd and 'Timber' hitmaker Pitbull. 

The 'Viva La Vida' superstars posted the news via their official Twitter page earlier this afternoon (February 19) and told their fans that the show will be huge: "Coldplay will play at the @iTunesFestival at SXSW in Austin on 11 March. The show will stream worldwide via iTunes."
