Q. Olaa gran y poderoso Oraculo!
Well maybe this is a stupid question but I can't remember when and where was the first show of the Viva la Vida tour so can you tell me?
Thanks and sorry for my bad English.
The Oracle replies:
It's not a stupid question at all; it was a long time ago! Even though I know when and where it was, I still feel the need to account for the live shows preceding the tour.
On June 13 2008 the band performed for friends & family at Wembley. This was followed by free/TV shows on 16th in Brixton, 17th Barcelona, 18th BBC Television Centre, 19th Paris and 23rd & 27th New York.
The first live date of the tour proper was July 14th at The Forum, Los Angeles.
