    Does anyone have any info on this? I thought that they were doing the closing ceremony, but came across this:

    I'm actually going to be in London that day, though it looks like the cheapest tix available right now are 300GBP...

    Unfortunately, I believe they'll only be playing maybe two songs, three at a push. I hope I'm wrong but this is what I'm hearing.

    I am going through London the week before when I head to Paris to see them at the Stade De France, but if the ticket prices were cheaper and Coldplay played a decent amount of songs then I'd definitely go.

    The Oracle recently said that if you're just intending on seeing Coldplay at the Closing Ceremony then "don't bother going."

    I hadn't seen it but since they will perform at the closing ceremony of the Paralympics it's unlikely they will also perform at the opening ceremony. They are in Copenhagen on the 28th and in Stockholm on the 30th so it could be possible but the flight schedule wouldn't make any sense.


    edit: Anchorman just tweeted about it:

    For those asking, Coldplay were never due to play the Olympics Closing Ceremony. They play the Paralympics Closing Ceremony on 9 Sept. A

    it means everything and it means nothing to everybody and nobody - Guy Berryman

    Phil, who is our fifth member, he doesnít play an instrument but he plays the mobile phone and the laptop computer - Will Champion

    a negative capability is the ability within yourself to accept that things go up and down and you can't always control it and they can't always be up but they won't always be down - Chris Martin

    itís a good noisy crowd that sing through the show at the Ahoy - none more so than when the band are on the B-Stage and the cheer for Will during Us Against The World is so huge that the song grinds to a halt amidst disbelieving giggles on stage - Roadie #42
