COLDPLAY are set to play a huge gig at Croke Park next year, Independent.ie can reveal.

The long-awaited concert will take place on 8 July 2017 in Croke Park as part of the A Head Full of Dreams Tour.

Speculation of an Irish concert was high when the band uploaded a video of various flags, including the Irish tricolour, flashing saying "2017" on Friday.

The Welsh, German, French, Italian, Swedish, Polish and Austrian flag are among the flags featured.

The English rock band last played in Ireland at Kildare's Punchestown Racecourse in July 2011 for their Mylo Xyloto Tour. Now speculation will begin on whether the gig on July 8 - a Saturday - will be a once-off or whether other gigs will be added.

Bruce Springsteen played two massive gigs at GAA headquarters last July - on a Friday and a Sunday night in peak GAA season.

Tickets will go on sale this Friday 7 October at 9am.

Prices start €69.50 from Ticketmaster.
