Corrections, Updates, and Mos Def?

Janice from Sparks, another great Coldplay site, pointed out to me that I made a little blunder in a previous news post. Coldplay's appearance on the Conan O' Brien show is scheduled for September 27th, not August 27th. I guess I got such a rush of blood to the head that I messed up the date ;)
Fans in the UK should tune into Radio 1 tomorrow, as Chris will be calling in to talk about the new album and make a special announcement. Fans elsewhere can tune in via the web (and find out more information) at www.bbc.co.uk/radio1.
According to Coldplay's official site, several new items have been added to the e-Shop. Among these new items are tracksuit tops, acetates and postcards, so go take a look!
Remember the Amnesty concert I told you about a few postings ago? Well, it went down last night and Chris had a surprise up his sleeve. Before the concert he ran into Mos Def at Coldplay's "pop star hotel," and asked him to join the band at the Music For Human Rights event. Mos Def agreed, and ended up trading verses with Chris, while Chris played guitar on versions of Bill Withers's "Lovely Day" and Bob Dylan's "Simple Twist Of Fate." Will Champion joined in shortly thereafter and added another vocal harmony as the crowd sang along to a rendition of Bob Marley's "Three Little Birds." Sounds like a fun time was had by all, and it ended up working out great for Chris, who probably didn't want all the singing attention on his voice. He had apologized to the crowd earlier in the night for the state of his voice...aparently he has a cold.
