Coldplay to play SA at the end of a cold winter

I have it on good authority on these guys are playing in SA this year:


Much-loved and much-hated English supergroup Coldplay is set to play South Africa in October this year. The news will be announced tomorrow. Let's hope that they get Soccer and not Sun City and do not charge around R1 000, so that true fans actually go.

I suggest the would-be fans who don't dance at concerts but have to go anyway start to learn some songs.

I hope they play my favourite Coldplay track, the one which broke them as a band, Shiver. They must all play Trouble and Amsterdam. Parachutes and A Rush of Blood to the Head were great albums. The ones since have been good and all but I prefer their old stuff.
