    Q. After reading about all these huge venues, I'm afraid that my hometown Coldplay concert must have been blah for the band. There were only 13,000 people. Do they hate doing small shows?

    The Oracle replies:

    That's a pretty small capacity for this tour to be honest but don't worry because they love playing smaller venues too. The stadium shows are gonna see the band perform in front of crowds of around 40-60,000+.

    Q. Dearest Oracle, What does "OK" mean?

    The Oracle replies:

    If I describe something as "ok" it means it's not bad or adequate. If someone asks me if I would want to do something and I reply "ok" it means yes. Sometimes I use it as a pause before I launch into an answer.

    Q. Hullo there! I've never been to a Coldplay concert, so I was wondering what happens to those yellow balls they let loose on the crowd? Do people keep them or do the band/crew take them back?

    The Oracle replies:

    I have seen various things happen to the yellow balloons; the majority are popped (they have confetti inside). Some people fight over ownership (ugly!) and some do make it outside. I'd love to see someone try and get one in the boot of their car! Some make their way to Chris and he pops them with his guitar.

    The point is to bounce them around from person to person and then pop them! They're certainly not meant to end up back with the crew.
