    Question 14-Mar-09: Coldplay to play Sydney Bushfire Benefit Show, Sydney, Australia [Live broadcast Triple J]

    Speculation is mounting down under that veteran Aussie promoters Michael Gudinski and Michael Chugg are co-ordinating simultaneous stadium concerts in support of the country's bushfire and flood appeals.

    Word is that the 100,000-capacity Melbourne Cricket Ground and the 45,000-plus capacity Sydney Cricket Ground will host concerts on March 14, while unconfirmed reports suggest the likes of Foo Fighters, Coldplay, Kings Of Leon, Jimmy Barnes, the Veronicas and a reunited Midnight Oil could be among the names on the bill. Coldplay is touring Australia shortly and are booked to play Sydney Acer Arena that evening.

    Confirmation of "two major music industry bushfire and flood relief concerts" was made in an email late this afternoon inviting the media to a Feb. 24 press conference at the MCG.

    News of the benefit concerts emerged from an unlikely source - the sports pages. Australia's cricket administrators are in a quandary about its centrepiece state final, which is booked-in for March 13-17 at the MCG - a time and place at loggerheads with the mooted event.

    At least 209 people are confirmed dead as a result of the bushfires which have raged across areas of Victoria, in the south east of Australia, while areas in the north of the country have been battling major floods, causing damage estimated in the hundreds of millions of dollars.

    Whats happened in Australia is a tragedy, if Chris and the lads are able to lend their names to a worthy cause, I'm sure they will, besides they seem to enjoy springing surprises! they always have something up their sleeve!

    Or if there is a problem with the cricket, just have it at the telstra dome (i think its renamed 'etihad stadium' now)...

    Andre rieu played there.... but there is no comparison. He is an old man.

    The problem is, Coldplay are booked at Sydney Entertainment Centre on the 14th

    And yes, I would love nothing else more than seeing them at the MCG. Then, I think my life may be partially more complete than it was otherwise.

    that would be so amazing i can't think straight. i'm in melbourne and i'll be there. even if coldplay aren't playing, it'd be mindblowing - i mean, where else can you see Kings of Leon and the Foo Fighters at the same concert? if Coldplay are there as well my life will be beyond perfect.

    In today's herald sun, it mentioned that the cricket game has been moved to make the MCG free for a benefit concert.

    Bring it on.

    If this happens, it will most likely go like this: there will be two concerts on the same day, the sat 14th. KOL (in melb that night) will headline the melb show, and Coldplay the sydney show.

    Which (if it happens) kinda sucks, cos I'd prefer if they had them both playing at the same venue on different days, not both on the sat.

    I guess we'll just have to wait until the Tuesday press conference..
