12 Coldplay Months of 2010: MARCH (10 Shots of Tequila)

Full review and poll: 12 Coldplay Months of 2010: FEBRUARY (*almost* £11k Viva Jacket sold!) [thanks Texasluvsjonny]

In March, The Viva tour rolled into Sao Paulo on Chris’s birthday. The Setlist included Shiver, Parabéns pra você/Happy Birthday (sung by Will to Chris) and Don Quixote/Spanish Rain. Roadie #42 joined the fellas for a spot of sushi on the first night in Rio De Janeiro. Outside the hotel was quite a crowd of lovely folks who were so overjoyed to see the fellas that they stood on the kerb below and sang the entire Coldplay catalogue up to the open windows above. Will in particular, remarked upon how impressive some of the polyrhythmic clapping had been. Only in Brazil…

Without Chris Martin and Guy Berryman, Coldplay visited Ronaldo and team-mates at Parque São Jorge, Corinthians team stadium. See the pictures of Coldplay with the team after the jump. With their own names on the back of their shirts, Jonny Buckland, Will Champion and Phil Harvey talked with Ronaldo, Edu, Pablo Andres and also posed for the photographers. The team president Andrés Sanches was in the stadium for another event and revealed that he didn’t know Coldplay were in the country, admitting that he does not know anything about their music. “I’m into samba!” he said.


The Oracle confirmed that the puppets had met their end during the Mexico trip. They were last seen in Guadalajara. The Oracle didn’t say exactly how they met their demise, but I have my theory….Guadalajara…..ground zero for tequila….my spiritual home land…. Some puppets, just can’t hang…
