Coldplay to Go on Hiatus for Three Years
Expect Coldplay to be under the music radar for quite a long time. The band announced that they would be taking a three-year break from music activity during their Wednesday, November 21 concert in Brisbane, Australia.
Frontman Chris Martin suddenly made the announcement to his concert audience and said that they wanted the night's performance to be their best ever since the group intended to take a long hiatus from music and performing. Huffington Post quoted Martin as saying, "This is the last big show for three years or so...I don't want to stop."
The Australian gig being the last big show might not exactly be accurate. The band still have a couple of U.S. shows coming next month including a New Year's Eve concert co-headlined by hip-hop mogul Jay-Z. The two artists are set to play at New York's Barclay's Center on December 31, and the show will mark Coldplay's return to the U.S. since 2005.
Other concert dates will see Coldplay on stage at the Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Connecticut on December 29 and at the Barclays Center again on December 30, this time headlining the show solo but with an opening act from R'n'B/pop group Naturally 7.
Throughout their 16-year musical career, Coldplay have been able to dish out five studio albums. They have spent most of this year going on an international tour.
