It’s Christmas come early for the the Coldplay haters of the internet, of which there are many. For Coldplay lovers, well, every teardrop is a waterfall.
Reports the Herald Sun:
The British rockers played a concert in Brisbane on Wednesday after which frontman Chris Martin suggested the band has grown tired of touring.
Coldplay has been on tour since October 2011 promoting their latest record, Mylo Xyloto.
“This is the last big show for three years or so,” he told reporters after the show, while adding, “I don’t want to stop.”
The announcement came just a few days after the band hinted at the impending release of their next record.
Now, I’ve said before that I don’t hate Coldplay nearly as much as the average denizen of the internet seems to, nor do I really get why they’re hated with the passion they are hated with. Yes, I know that their stuff is pop-y and appealing to a mass audience, but I sometimes think people hate them solely because groupthink dictates they do so. To me, Gwyneth Paltrow is much more worthy of the hate than Chris Martin and his band are.
Still, I am on record for believing that their songs are often best performed by other people. So there’s that!
