Two Gigs in a Day
July 03, 2005 10:16 AM
NME is reporting on Coldplay's Glasgow performance last night:
Coldplay flew to Glasgow directly after their appearance on the Live 8 stage in London last night (2nd July).
The band played the second of two sold-out nights at the city's Bellahouston Park, a gig which had been announced prior to Live 8.
Despite travelling to and from London that day and playing three gigs in twenty-four hours the band seemed in fantastic spirits, with Chris Martin even declaring at the end that he considered this show the best they'd ever played.
Making reference to Live 8 just before playing 'Yellow' he said "Today's one of the most important days in musical history and we're glad to be here with you on it. We're in a very good mood and we hope you are too."
During 'Everything's Not Lost' he asked the crowd "sing it to George Bush, he's flying in" while pointing skywards, and added a chorus of Status Quo's 'Rocking All Over The World' to the end of 'In My Place' - as he also did earlier at Live 8, the song being the one which opened Live Aid twenty years ago.
For the full article, including the Glasgow performance's setlist, head on over to NME.

Coldplay to Duet with Ex-Verve Frontman?
June 30, 2005 4:18 AM
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.
