Coldplay will be performing in Atlanta this SundayMay 15th, 2009 - 9:51 pm ICT by GD
Chris Martin, Coldplay’s frontman, does not have any idea whether Michael Stipe, the singer from REM will be with the band or not this coming Sunday, when the band will be performing at Atlanta.
For Martin, having Stipe, the lead singer of REM, sit with the band in the year 2005 was a dream come true for him and this year also he is looking forward to have Stipe at hand. However, this year his presence is a bit uncertain.
The latest album of Coldplay titled “Viva La Vida” won three Grammys and as for the sales it was a multi-million success. Considering this, one can imagine that the admiration for each other is not just not one-sided, it goes both ways. If it did not then Stipe would not have sat in with the band way back in 2005.
The extended tour of Coldplay that began almost 12 months before in order to provide publicity for their latest album had brought the band earlier in Atlanta in last November 2008, and they they will be there in Atlanta performing at the Lakewood Amphitheater this coming Sunday.
Recently, in an telephone interview from the city of Los Angeles, Martin talked about the sold out arenas in which they played and also about the thunderstorm which they had to experience while performing in one of their recent out door concert in Abu Dhabi. Reflecting on their “thunderstromy” Martin quipped, “I think it was God telling us to shut up.
