According to the band, Coldplay chose Jordan for its natural beauty and historical and cultural significance, while also reflecting the middle eastern flavors and motifs that permeate the album’s music and artwork. The band added “We’re really excited to launch our new album in Jordan. It has always felt like the perfect place for these two special shows.”
“We are honored that Jordan, the land of hospitality, home of Petra and the legendary Wadi Rum was chosen by Coldplay to debut their latest album, “said, Majd Shweikeh, Minister of Tourism and Antiquities. “A hub for adventure, cultural, historical and faith-based tourism, Jordan is becoming the favorite location of international artists for music, film and festivals.”
Jordan Tourism Board is proud to be one of the entities supporting this international event that will take place in Amman. Known in the ancient world as Philadelphia, the city of Amman has been inhabited since the Bronze age, and has been a home to a diverse range of ancient civilizations.
The album is being pre-promoted on an international scale, teaser posters featuring the band members in black and white vintage-style photos surfaced mid-October in cities all over the globe, including Amman, Berlin, Hong Kong, Madrid, São Paulo and Sydney.
