Coldplay has announced that they are “very sad” to have to cancel planned performances in Brazil due to the diagnosis of a dangerous lung infection in vocalist Chris Martin.

The gigs, which were scheduled for this month, will now take place in early 2023, the British band said on Tuesday.

As part of their “Music of the Spheres” international tour, Coldplay was scheduled to perform at eight concerts in Rio de Janeiro and Sao Paulo.

The band said Martin must rest for three weeks according to “strict doctor’s recommendations.”

The statement said, “To everyone in Brazil who was looking forward to these shows, we’re tremendously sorry for any inconvenience and dissatisfaction, and we’re so grateful for your understanding at this difficult time where we need to prioritise Chris’ health.

After the required medical hiatus, “we’re sure that Chris will recover well, and we look forward to continuing the tour shortly.”

The group noted that they were working to secure the new dates and would provide more details later on.

Additionally, it stated that refunds would be honoured when necessary and that tickets would be good for the 2023 events.

This year’s Coldplay world tour kicked off in Costa Rica in March.

Following Martin’s planned period of rest, they will perform their next concert in Argentina on October 25. The European leg of their tour will start in May 2023.
