Making Headlines as Usual

Let's get this news update rolling. According to Ananova, Coldplay's frontman, Chris Martin, has contributed to two tracks on Ian McCulloch's new album (of Echo and the Bunnymen fame).
Have you noticed that Coldplay's tour for 'A Rush of Blood to the Head' is a lot more "together" than past tours? Well, there's apparently good reason for this. In an article over at LAUNCH, Jonny Buckland says "it's the first tour we've ever really rehearsed. So, when we were touring over the last few years someone would say, 'Oh you're going to Japan and then you've got a European tour.' So we wouldn't really have any time in the rehearsal room. Whereas now, we've been able to spend three or four weeks with lighting people and sound people and just to try to get everything together. So we feel a little bit more prepared."
Speaking of the recent tour, there has been a lot of hype surrounding the latest shows. On Monday night, Chris dedicated 'In My Place' to one of the band's biggest high-profile fans, Gwyneth Paltrow, during their London gig at Wembley Arena. NME reports that he also dedicated songs to his mother, who was in the crowd. Radiohead's Ed O'Brien showed up at the band's after-show party, which was held at the Cobden Club. The band played a show in Belfast tonight and finishes up the tour in Dublin on Sunday.
Coldplay picked up one of the most prestigious awards at this year's Q Awards, the award for "Best Album." They were topped, though, by Ed O'Brien's band, Radiohead, who took home the award for "Best Act in the World Today."
And finally, if you haven't seen the video for 'The Scientist,' you have to check it out. It's definitely thought- and emotion-provoking, to say the least. All you need to do is register at The Official Coldplay Site, and you'll have full-access to the video, and other great features.
