NME is reporting that Coldplay took the 2005 KROQ Almost Acoustic Christmas by storm this year:

Coldplay and The White Stripes played storming sets at Los Angeles radio station KROQ's Almost Acoustic Christmas show last night (December 11).

Depeche Mode also rounded off the evening celebrating the bands of 2005 with a headlining set at the Gibson Amphitheatre.

The band, who Coldplay's Chris Martin described as "shit hot", closed the night with a set of hits that included 1990 classic 'Enjoy the Silence', 'Never Let Me Down Again' and 'Shake the Disease'.

Coldplay, who had almost the entire 5,000 strong crowd on their feet for their own set, were moved to pay tribute to the reformed eighties act. Just before 'Fix You' Martin suggested the crowd appreciate Depeche Mode as much as he does.

"Please give them the respect they deserve for being the forefathers of modern music," he told the audience.
