Another full summer Coldplay US arena tour annoucement may be round the corner as Live Nation has listed a second US date at the Sommet Center in Nashville, Tennessee on 6th June (screenshot taken in case it disappears!). This follows just hours after a new date in Birmingham, Alabama was confirmed for 18th May.
The two dates, almost three weeks apart, look to be joined by further shows in between, with more in early-mid May and mid June also a possibility. Four June Canadian shows were announced yesterday in Winnipeg, Calgary, Edmonton and Vancouver. This comes as Chris Martin explains Coldplay's ambitions, comparing them to triple Olympic record holder Usain Bolt.
He admitted that the band are constantly striving to be the best in their field. "I know we're not shit," he told the Herald Sun. "We want to be like Usain Bolt, we don't want to be the guy who came fifth. It's not enough to get into the Olympic finals, you've got to win it."
Chris Martin added that there is more pressure on recording artists than ever before. "We're on our fourth album, we're doing about as well as you can ask to do, but there's a blessing and a curse to being in a band in 2009," he said. "The curse is there's so many things that have gone before you it's difficult to be original and also you're competing against all those things in history from Beethoven to Sigur Ros to Gabriella Cilmi.
More on that interview with the Herald Sun at the Coldplay forum here onwards.
