Coldplay to Duet with Ex-Verve Frontman?

All the intrigue and array of possible combinations surrounding the running order for Live 8, is keeping music journalists busy this week.
Yesterday we had Sir Paulís alleged insistence to open or close the show – and the compromise that followed was to duet with Bono in a Sgt Pepperís cover.
And now the latest reports surround Coldplay, who are reportedly planning to duet with lanky ex-Verve crooner, Richard Ashcroft, with a take on the classic, Bitter Sweet Symphony.
Both Coldpay and the now-solo Ashcroft are signed to the same record company and sources claim Coldplay frontman Chris Martin has become bosom buddies with the mop-haired indie king.
They have been secretly rehearing the track together in what many punters will view as a highlight of the event.
So raspberries and up yours to Nobo and Sir Appalling, then.
