    Coldplay after their visit to chile

    "we'll be back with a massive show"

    In a meeting with the press the band thanked to their chilean fans and told why they didn't show new songs in the concerts

    Coldplay is not a band of lots of risks... in their music or their words. "what do you think about the chilean public?" asked in a meeting with the press, yesterday in the Hyatt Hotel. "Fantastic, we're used to thing a lot more disgusting, this have been really great" Say Chris Martin, the frontman of the band. "what do you think about guys like Noel Gallagher?"; "we''d never talk about someone in a bad way, even if we'd think that it's just shit" said the singer.

    Just thanks as a review of their week in chile, where they did 3 shows that finished yesterday at espacio riesco. Even Martin promise that they'll back soon. "We'll be back with a massive show"

    even when he talks about a confusion moment in one of their presentations in chile the singer looks smiley. "in the 1st night they throw me a lot of flags and I was really close to get one when Will (the drummer) told me that I should no do that, it could be a trouble" said martin about the colombian flag that some people throw at him

    the more news came when the singer talked about why they didn't included new songs, as they promised even in their official website: "we didn't do that because of internet. if we play soemthing new now, it will mess the big surprise; the album won't be released in a while. Also we had never been here so for the people that went to our shows, the song yellow is new".

    their social role and the iniciative of giving losts of tickets to their fans in the hotel, was another theme in their chilean visit. in fact, yesterday the english magazine NME had in their site an article called "Coldplay in controversy because the high price of their tickets in chile", quoting the interview of "El Mercurio which Martin Said that is really ashaming the high price of the tickets

    also the artist confirmed that thursday night, after their show, he met Sebastian davalos, son of the president Michelle Bachelet. "It's very interesting as country, because the international comerce alliances, he said



    Martin the Host
    In Chile, Chris Martin did everything. Yesterday he presented their opening act. "With you, my favourite chilean band.., Saiko!", He said in spanish that he learned from the chilean band. in the concert he sang just a line in spanish "hoy corté una flor y llovía y llovía" oh Leonardo Favio and also played "High Speed" of their 1st album, a gift that he said, he won't repeat again.


    "we're lucky, the gallaghers are nice with us"

    Chris martin





    original spanish article



    Coldplay luego de su paso por Chile:
    "Ya volveremos con un concierto más masivo"

    CLAUDIO VERGARA



    En cita con la prensa, la banda agradeció a los fans chilenos y explicó por qué no mostró temas nuevos en sus tres shows.


    CLAUDIO VERGARA

    Coldplay no es una banda de demasiados riesgos. Ni en su música ni en sus palabras. "¿Qué les pareció el público chileno?", preguntan en una cita con la prensa, celebrada ayer en el hotel Hyatt. "Fantástico, estamos acostumbrados a cosas mucho más desagradables, esto ha sido muy placentero", responde Chris Martin, la cara visible del conjunto. "¿Qué opinan de tipos directos como Noel Gallagher?", avanza el cuestionario. "Nunca hablaríamos mal de nadie, aunque pensemos que es una mierda", lanza de vuelta el vocalista.

    Sólo agradecimientos como resumen de su semana en Chile, donde dieron tres shows que culminaron anoche en Espacio Riesco. Tanto, que Martin prometió pronto regreso: "Ya volveremos con un concierto más masivo".

    Hasta cuando relata un instante de confusión en sus presentaciones chilenas, el vocalista luce sonriente. "En la primera noche me arrojaron muchas banderas y estuve a un paso de levantar una cuando Will (el baterista) me dijo que no lo hiciera, que podía ser un problema", comenta Martin, refiriéndose a la bandera colombiana que le arrojaron.

    Las mayores novedades vinieron cuando el cantante explicó por qué no estrenaron temas nuevos, tal como lo había anunciado hasta en su propia web: "No lo hicimos por internet. Si tocamos algo nuevo ahora, arruina la sorpresa; el disco no va a salir en mucho tiempo. Además, nunca antes habíamos estado acá, por lo que para las personas que fueron cada noche, la canción 'Yellow' es nueva".

    Su rol social y la iniciativa de regalar decenas de entradas a sus fans en el Hyatt fue tema obligado en su escala en Santiago. De hecho, ayer la revista musical inglesa "NME" publica en su web un artículo titulado "Coldplay en controversia por precios de los tickets en Chile", citando la entrevista de "El Mercurio" en que Martin calificaba de "vergonzoso" el alto precio de los boletos.

    Además, el artista confirmó que en la noche del jueves 15, tras diversas gestiones y a varias horas de terminado su show, pudo finalmente juntarse con Sebastián Dávalos, hijo de Michelle Bachelet: "Es muy interesante como país, por los tratados de libre comercio que ha tenido, pero realmente tampoco quiero meterme mucho", comentó.

    Martin, el animador

    En Chile, Chris Martin las hizo todas. Para coronar, ayer ofició de conductor y presentó en Espacio Riesco a sus teloneros. "Con ustedes, mi banda chilena favorita... ¡Saiko!", anunció en un español que le enseñó la banda local. En el concierto se atrevió con la línea "Hoy corté una flor/ y llovía y llovía", de Leonardo Favio; y cantó "High Speed" de su disco debut, un regalo que, aseguró, no volvería a repetir. La locura fue total.

    "Somos afortunados: los Gallagher nos tratan bien".

    CHRIS MARTIN

    But we should hear and approve the stuff, before the album, there are some of us who don't like bucket for a crown. sometimes you need to give your fans input and it won't be a big surprise anyway for they'll put out a single, the tour will start a month or two before the album, and it could be leaked.

    besides, if they wanted a big surprise they wouldn't play a new song, part of a new song, and tell us the names of two new songs and that they are ripoffs.

    Playing the drums very badly, and the bass even worse.

    It's pretty ironic actually...We sit up watching the New Songs thread and there are no new songs because of US!!! Lol!

    As for running your music by your fans, I'm sorry, but that's simply not true or fair. Your music, no matter how much others love it or hate it, is for you first, and the band's approval of what they write is all that matters.

    If Chris would raise the colombian flag, I'm sure all chilean fans go for him and kick on the ass, hahaha. Another band made something like that. Will is our hero.

    Will's so smart. No wonder.

    I agree with Tracie. No matter how responsible your fans are for getting you to whre you are now, you can't write or run your music by your fans. So far, they've written everything on their own approval, despite what the fans (Or even their bosses) say.

    I am disappointed. I think maybe they still preview a new song the last show or something of the sort.

    Oh, and Bucket for A Crown is insignifcant. Chris didn't even write that song with the band and it wasn't even finished when he played it. He was just tossing it around.

    If artists always made the best decisions, look at these stumbling messes How to Dissisamble an Atomic Bomb, and we should have some idea of what an album's going to be before we hear it. Unless they put together an album like Ok computer or Kid A.

    IF they don't play the new songs, the thing I'll be pissed about is that they said they would play new songs.
