The big announcement on Zane Lowe's Radio 1 show turned out to be Coldplay live on R1 from Brixton Academy in London, later this month - just as they did on 6/6/06 for the release of X&Y.
This will be Coldplay's first UK show since 2005 and your chance to hear their new songs live for the first time. You can hear the gig live on Radio 1 from 8:30-9:30pm on Zane Lowe's show on Monday 16th June 2008. Coldplay will be performing old tracks as well as new material from their latest album Viva La Vida Or Death & All His Friends. More on the Radio 1 news here onwards [thanks fixed]
Meanwhile, thousands of Coldplay fans tuned in to two exclusive radio interviews on 2nd June, one on KROQ (LA) and one later in the day on Q Music (London).
