"Hello everyone, we’re very sorry that we weren’t able to play our show in Houston on August 25 due to Hurricane Harvey. We’ve decided to cancel the show so that everyone can get a refund -- but we will make sure that everyone who had tickets for the August 25 show will have priority access for the next time we play in Houston," Coldplay wrote, adding, "We send our love to everyone in Houston and everyone affected by the hurricane. Love Coldplay."
Coldplay's manager, Phil Harvey, also released a statement via the band's Twitter page, writing how "unfortunately there was no venue availability in the slots where we could have scheduled a new concert."
"We will be back. A new show in Houston is a top priority for us," he expressed, adding that the band "desperately wanted to play the originally scheduled date."
