From today's Sun newspaper in the UK:
COLDPLAY are going back to school — playing at tiny university venues next year.
CHRIS MARTIN & Co want to try out material from their new album on small audiences.
They are planning gigs in London, Liverpool and Scotland next March in halls which hold no more than 1,000 people.
Tickets for the shows will be like gold dust.
Quick phone calls to contacts at other universities and so forth suggest Glasgow University, Liverpool University, then a final date at ULU on the weekend surrounding the album's release, similar to the Kentish Town Forum album launch gig in August 2002. I really daren't think how rare these tickets will be.
