UPDATE: Coldplay played the Open'er Festival in Poland last night (30th June) - however no reviews are available, and only one photo has surfaced. The setlist was the same as Glastonbury and Where The Action Is festivals. For more on this concert visit the Coldplay Live forum. Next stop: BELGIUM!
Coldplay were due to headline the RXP TaKLIBERTY Festival in New Jersey on 18th September, that is until the radio station WRXP scrapped the event, according to various reports tonight. No reason was given beyond the dreaded 'unforeseen circumstances.' The news of the TaKLIBERTY cancellation comes on the heels of news of WRXP's sale to Merlin Media, a group headed by radio entrepreneur Randy Michaels. You can read and discuss more on this breaking story at the Coldplay Live forum now [thanks xmonstermaggie]
Meanwhile, better news on two other festival fronts. Splendour in the Grass playing times for 2011 have been revealed. Sunday 31st July is UK invasion day, with the Amphitheatre stage having Elbow followed by Kaiser Chiefs, Pulp and Coldplay to close the thing out. Coldplay's set is due to start at 10.45pm and finish around midnight. Click here to download a pdf of the schedule, and continue discussing the festival at the Coldplay Live forum here onwards, where news of one Coldplayer winning VIP upgrade passes is sure to bring back excellent reviews from the side of the stage.
And as the official site told us earlier, don't forget that the Coldplay show at the Main Square Festival on Sunday night (July 3) is being broadcast live on France's Virgin Radio - and you can listen online, wherever you are, at VirginRadio.fr.
