Long Awaited Update

I apologize for the lack of updates in the past week or so, but I had some site problems (which you may have noticed) as well as a bunch of work to do that wasn't Coldplay related. I'm starting to get back on track, though, so here's a long-awaited Coldplay update for you starving fanatics out there :)
As you most likely have heard by now, Coldplay is gearing up for yet another U.S. tour in support of its latest album 'A Rush Of Blood To The Head.' After a string of pre-Christmas radio performances, as well as a slot on the Late Night With David Letterman show on Dec.19, the band will hit the road beginning Jan. 21 in Orlando and wrap up on Feb. 9 in Phoenix, with 14 dates currently scheduled. I'm sure a lot of you out there (myself included) are keeping your fingers crossed in hopes that more dates will be added. If and when they are, you'll hear about it here first.
You also may have heard by now that Chris debuted a new song, called 'Moses,' during Coldplay's recent show over in Europe at the Madrid Riviera. I haven't heard any real details about the song yet, but if I get a hold of any lyrics, or better-yet, audio, I'll be sure to add whatever it is to the site. I'd appreciate it if anyone who has more information about the song would email me, too.
According to an article over at RollingStone and a few fan-emails I received (thanks, by the way), Coldplay is set to perform at KROQ's thirteenth annual Almost Acoustic Christmas this year, along with Sum 41, Queens of the Stone Age, Beck, and the Flaming Lips. The set of two shows will take place on December 7th and December 8th in Los Angeles.
You can expect to see some footage of the band on their 2002 tour come New Year's Eve, when Dick Clark's Primetime New Year's Rockin' Eve airs. Apparently the footage will be shown as part of a "look back" on some of the better tours of 2002.
And finally, I'll leave with a rather humerous piece of news. NME is reporting that Coldplay has unveiled a new bizarre cover while on tour in Scandenavia. According to several fans at their November 21st show at the Copenhagen VK Hall, Chris and Jonny covered Aqua's 'Barbie Girl.' Apparently Chris did the Barbie voice while Jonny played the part of Ken. One fan said about the rendition, "it was awful and yet amazing at the same time, but they had to quit one minute into the song because they couldn't stop laughing and it really was a spectacular sight!"
The article also goes on to say that several new songs, beyond the aforementioned 'Moses,' have been unveiled in the past few days. The band performed a song with the working title 'Gravity' in Copenhagen, and another called 'Marianne' in Stockholm on Saturday night that has been labeled a "full on rock song."
