    Just days before Chris Martin and Co. are set to be profiled by Steve Kroft on 60 Minutes (see below) and hit the stage with the slew of other musical heavy-hitters in celebration of The Grammys, the English outfit, perhaps best known to you and me as Coldplay, has rolled out dates for a summer U.S. tour.

    Following stops in Japan, Australia, and Europe, Coldplay will return to the U.S. for what is currently a month-long endeavor beginning July 10th in Portland, Oregon. Of course, as any festival goer will tell you, the most attention grabbing part of the current itinerary is the plans around August 7-9, or the weekend that will be Lollapallooza 2009, which as of now, don’t give much credence to the current rumors that the band will be headlining the festival this year. But then again, one date (August 8th) is open, so you never know.

    Additional dates will be announced in the coming weeks. Tickets for the ones below will go on sale beginning Friday, February 13th via Ticketmaster.com.

    Before heading out on tour, Coldplay will be splitting its time working on the followup to last year’s Viva la Vida or Death and All His Friends, performing at The Grammys, and dealing with a recent lawsuit served by musician Joe Satriani over plagiarism charges.

    Suffice to say, the jacket won’t be going anywhere anytime soon.
