Coldplay's first album, the 2000 release Parachutes (Parlophone), has sold almost 5 million copies. Following on its success, the band spent most of 2001 touring the U.S., Australia and Europe. Back on the road through the second half of 2002 to promote A Rush of Blood to the Head (Capitol), which sold almost 2 million in its first week of release, the band returned to the San Francisco Bay Area in September, this time appearing at Berkeley's 12,000-capacity Greek Theater; previous San Francisco shows were at The Warfield, The Fillmore and the much smaller venue Bimbo's. The tour will return to the States in December and is scheduled to continue for another year or two.
