The band released a statement, "With deep regret, we’ve been forced to postpone our upcoming shows in Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo until early 2023. Due to a serious lung infection, Chris has been put under strict doctor’s orders to rest for the next three weeks," the statement read.
The band also added that they would soon update the new schedule of their shows in Brazil. "We’re working as fast as possible to lock in the new dates and will follow up with more information in the next few days," it read.
The statement further read, "To everyone in Brazil who was looking forward to these concerts, we’re extremely sorry for any disappointment and inconvenience, and we’re so grateful for your understanding at this challenging time where we need to prioritise Chris’ health."
As per the official Coldplay website, the band planned to bring their successful Music of the Spheres world tour to South America this October, with eight shows for Rio De Janeiro and Sao Paulo. Now, the British rock band has announced that they will be postponing the Brazil leg to early 2023 to allow Chris time to recover.
