Coldplay's Chris Martin tonight has the opportunity to add to the three shiny new Grammys on the mantlepiece of his lavish London mansion. But refreshingly, the rock superstar with an A-list Hollywood wife has not lost sight of the most important people in the band’s incredible success — the fans.
In the year that has gained the band gongs and sales records all over the world, Chris plans to give away a FREE live album to people who go to their huge shows this summer. He hopes the gift will thank fans for their support and for parting with their hard-earned cash in difficult financial times. Chris says: "What we want to do is try to giveaway a live album for free. We’re playing a lot of shows in the summer and I think what we would like to do is — bearing in mind the recession we are in — record the live album then give it as a gift. We are just trying to work out how to do that. It’s obviously a bit tricky in terms of record contracts and things but it would be great. It’s a way of saying thank you."
