Santogold To Join Coldplay Tour

In a somewhat surprising turn of events, Philadelphia native Santogold will support Coldplay on part of their North American arena tour this summer (dates below). These will be the first Santogold live dates in the US since SXSW and Coachella where her performances became highlights of the festivals. She will also perform at this year’s Lollapalooza and Central Park SummerStage.

Downtown/Lizard King released Santogold’s self-titled debut album in April and it instantly became one of 2008’s most acclaimed albums with Rolling Stone declaring her “The future of music, today” due to the album’s genre-defying sound. Critics and radio have championed the record’s first single “L.E.S. Artistes” and the video became an online sensation.
