NEW YORK (AP) – After its upcoming Super Bowl halftime show, Coldplay expects to be accustomed to big stages.

The British rockers said Thursday they would be performing seven stadium gigs in the United States this summer, touring in support of their album, “A Head Full of Dreams.” Since the announcement called them the first U.S. shows, it is expected there will be more.

All of those announced so far are on Saturday nights, starting July 16 at MetLife Stadium in the New York City metropolitan region.

Coldplay is also scheduled to play Soldier Field in Chicago; Gillette Stadium outside Boston; Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia; the Rose Bowl in the Los Angeles area; AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas; and Levi’s Stadium in the San Francisco market.
