The show isn't until tonight, but the big news from Coldplaying.com so far is that Cemeteries Of London has been soundchecked by Coldplay in Strasbourg today, and there is a great possibility they may play it live tonight. The track from the new album Death And All His Friends has never been played live... yet.
Chris Martin has described it as their "ghost march" and he is clearly trying to tackle the big questions as he sings about a supernatural and religious quest. This, along with a few other tracks, brings to mind the resonant 1980s stadium rock of bands like U2, Genesis, Simple Minds and Marillion.
