COLDPLAY fans from across the country will be bracing the cold tonight as they wait to snap up tickets to see the band.

The British music giants, pictured, will play at the Stadium of Light next summer.

Queues of fans are expected to start gathering at the stadium today to make sure they get a ticket when they go on sale at 9am.

Preparation for the fans’ arrival started yesterday with barriers, stewarding and additional facilities on standby for those hoping to camp out tonight.

Gary Hutchinson, Sunderland AFC’s head of venue and events, said: “We are delighted with the bands we have once again been able to attract to the Stadium of Light. Coldplay are a hugely influential and successful group, not only in Britain but across the world, and that has naturally resulted in huge interest in their sole appearance here in the North East.”

SAFC boss Margaret Byrne said: “To have established the Stadium of Light as one of the top music venues in the country in just three years is a fantastic achievement for both the club and the region.”

Fronted by Chris Martin, the band will play on June 7.
