Coldplay shows postponed

Just days after Lana Del Rey announced that she wouldn’t be coming to sing awkwardly for us later this month, Coldplay has announced that they will also be postponing their upcoming promotional tour dates.

The heavily branded visit was to see last year’s Splendour in the Grass headliners playing two intimate gigs in Sydney for fans of breakfast television shows and mobile phone companies. However the shows were dangerously close to the presentation of the 2012 Grammy Awards where Coldplay are in with a chance to win three awards – Best Rock Performance, Best Rock Song and Best Group Performance.

So not content with causing the cancellation of tours the Cee-Lo Green and Janelle Monae tours last year it looks as though the Grammys might have killed another Australian tour. Damn you old men of the American music business!

Like Lana, who promises that “more extensive dates will be announced soon”, Coldplay say that “We miss you guys and we promise we’ll make it up to you. In fact, stay tuned for a big announcement soon.”

Big announcement, huh? What ever could that be? Surely not the strongly rumoured proper tour?

Stay tuned to FasterLouder for the Coldplay tour announcement coming soon.

Its actually a good thing for me coz I'm finding myself pretty short of funds after the Wall, Playground Weekender and flights and a ticket to YES in Melbourne and I can only imagine that Coldplay want another $150 at least from me.

"strongly rumoured tour".

It's like no one has been listening and I have to repeat myself all the time. It's not a "rumour" that they're doing a full tour, Chris Martin already said himself at Splendour 2011 that they were doing a full tour in 2012.

Yes, we all know that's it's almost certainly happening but until it's actually announced it's just a rumour. They might have been planning a 2012 return while at Splendour, but a few words on stage hardly counts as anything solid.

If we took every time a band said "We'll be back for a full tour" on their last Australian tour as concrete evidence, there'd be at least double the amount of traffic coming through our concert halls and arenas.

We'd probably also have a Radiohead tour by now.

"And no matter where you are, you always say It's the wildest town in the whole damn world."
"So when you said it in Springfield last year you didn't mean it?"
"Yeah sure I did, but only because Springfield really is the wildest town in the whole damn world!"

One month later, we have a Radiohead tour.

What's the new go-to artist that hasn't toured Australia in ages that we can quote for our lack of tours? Bowie? The Boss? Prince? Madonna?

Tom Waits - fucker hasn't toured since '79.

Doesn't he not like live shows altogether though? I remember one of the past ATP curators saying that there is a blanket ban on asking Tom Waits to perform because "he always says no and it's a waste of everyone's time"

Well there was the Glitter and Doom tour but I think there was less than twenty stops all up including American and European dates.
