Live in Atlanta
March 09, 2003 9:39 PM
As posted previous to this update, 99x New Rock was nice enough to re-broadcast Coldplay's gig from March 6th, 2003 tonight on the air and online. However, even though their site says "in its entirety," apparently that phrase has a different meaning for them than it does for most of us. They decided to leave off the final song (which I'm guessing was "Ladder to the Sun" and the only one I really really wanted to hear), so I was unable to record it for all of you! I guess you can't look a gift horse in the mouth, though, so I should say it was nice hearing another great Coldplay show. I did manage to record a few of the tracks, and they are here for you to download:

Tour Going Well
March 09, 2003 1:44 PM
Besides the rumors that Chris Martin and Gwyneth Paltrow are engaged, Coldplay's current tour has been the talk of the town(s) lately. Marisa wrote in about a week ago to give details about an intimate acoustic session that Chris and Jonny put on just before the University of Miami show on January 22nd. Apparently toward the end of the show Chris threw in a line from Missy Elliot's 'Work It,' saying "lay it down, flip it and reverse it." Pretty funny!
Joseph wrote in to say that the Grady Cole Center, North Carolina show was great, and Clark reported that the show at the Ryman in Nashville "kicked ass." Paolo wrote in concerning the February 27th show in Wallingford, Connecticut to say that "they were just excellent. The whole show was a blast and they did a great job. They made everyone excited and pulled the audience in." Thanks for the emails, guys!
In semi-related news, you can catch a replay of Coldplay's latest gig in Atlanta today at 8pm Eastern over at www.99x.com. According to Sam (in the guestbook) there was a new song played during the show and some Elton John, so you won't want to miss it! Thanks, Sam.
And in non-tour news, there is apparently a "Making of the Video" type deal over at the Australian Channel [V] website that features Coldplay and the making of their new video for 'Clocks.' If you're interested in watching, check out new.channelv.com.au. And finally, tune in to NBC on the night of March 11th, as The Conan O'Brian Show will be repeating their September 26, 2002 program with Coldplay. Thanks to Sally and Toni for sending both of those tips in!

Happy Birthday Chris!
March 01, 2003 11:36 PM
Looks like the folks at The Daily Standard didn't appreciate Chris Martin's apparent anti-war sentiment at the Brit Awards, when he said "Awards are essentially nonsense. We're all going to die when George Bush has his way. It's good to go out with a bang." The did, however, appreciate the band's performance at the Grammys.
Just in case you do happen to share Martin's view on world affairs, though, you might want to give this article at KnoxNews a read, though. My favorite line? "Occasionally you run into a photographer or something. Just when you start to think, 'I'm a huge rock star,' there are 50 people in the airport with you who have no idea who you are or a guy serving you a sandwich who gets angry with you because you haven't got the right change." Chris never fails to crack me up.
And finally, a very happy birthday to Chris Martin who turns 26 on March 2nd!
