Album Listening Parties

Coldplay fans will have the opportunity to preview the group's second album, A Rush Of Blood To The Head, during a series of listening parties scheduled in 10 U.S. cities for Wednesday and Thursday (July 31 and August 1). The album is not due for release until August 27..
Parties are scheduled for Wednesday in Seattle; Austin, Texas; Dallas; San Francisco; San Diego; and Portland, Oregon. Four more are slated for Thursday in St. Louis, Denver, Atlanta, and Cleveland. Another gathering is also on the schedule for August 8 in Los Angeles.
However, fans will be on their own when it comes to sizing up the album. Coldplay frontman Chris Martin says he'd rather not try to explain it. "You know, to describe an album, particularly a new album, is a bit like someone asking you to describe your own nose, you know, because you're the one person that can't really see it for what it is, you know? Even if you look in the mirror, it's still the wrong way around, and that's how I feel about talking about our albums, because we're just too close to it."
A Rush Of Blood To The Head features the single "In My Place." Coldplay will promote the album with a club tour in select U.S. cities in August, with a series of dates in larger venues to follow in September.
