Not exactly. Parlophone, Coldplay's label, belonged to EMI. EMI was bought by Universal Music, but the European commission stated that, in order to make sure there'd still be enough competition on the market, Universal could not buy all of EMI, and Universal therefore had to sold Parlophone. Parlophone now belongs to Warner, not EMI.I don't get it, Warner Music possesses EMI that possesses Coldplay?
Okay, thanks!Not exactly. Parlophone, Coldplay's label, belonged to EMI. EMI was bought by Universal Music, but the European commission stated that, in order to make sure there'd still be enough competition on the market, Universal could not buy all of EMI, and Universal therefore had to sold Parlophone. Parlophone now belongs to Warner, not EMI.
It does sound logic in a way, although I have no idea how all these things work. However, I think, if the problem was indeed the Parlophone selling to Warner, that is not something the band (and by band I also mean here all the people that work for them and are in charge of tours and contracts and all that) couldn't have known in advance, or before announcing the tour.My Opinion, is there is a new owner that was announced a few day's back, and maybe the contract couldn't work itself out in time for the new owners to agree on money issues, or does the record label not make money on tours???
HOW TRUE IS THIS?? Its from a newspaper in Mexico..
