“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 honoured 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 favourite location of international artists for music, film and festivals.” : Coldplay
“I am excited this launch will showcase Jordan to the world in the light that it deserves hand in hand with international music icons who carry similar values and messages as the people of my country. Jordan has always been an exporter of peace, a beacon of hope and harmony in line with the cover of the album promoting peace and love. Having been picked by Coldplay to represent the spirituality and harmonious togetherness their music encompasses, wasn’t that far-fetched, as Jordan is a true advocate of peace.
I am certain this collaboration will have an economic impact on Jordan when we welcome media and Jordanians to attend Coldplay’s album reveal, and we hope the global audience for the concerts will encourage more people to visit Jordan.” : Dr. Abed Al Razzaq Arabiyat, Managing Director of the Jordan Tourism Board.
