Are Muse *that* far apart from Coldplay? Coldplay sell more records and get more airplay but they're still multiple Glastonbury (and other festival) headliners, stadium fillers and whatnot...

I meant '...as well as Muse'. I don't think Muse are that far off Coldplay, and they're certainly a step up compared to the other IOW headliners next year. Had IOW had 2 headliners at that level, any talk of them on their last legs would be nonsensical.

Muse are a big band but their size isn’t equal in all markets they sell in. Coldplay I’d say are a truly global band. They are about the same size… everywhere. A rare feat.

I'd say they've peaked in terms of size haven't they? They're still a big band, but I've got the feeling their status has dropped a little.

Based on what?

Last time they played Rock Werchter, they didn't even manage to sell out their day (while being a pretty exclusive festival booking in 2019), whereas other big acts like Pearl Jam, Radiohead, Foo Fighters,... managed to carry a day on their own. In the past they seemed like a much hotter ticket. 

Maybe it's because they're touring too much? I mean, next year they're even playing festivals like Open Air St Gallen, Mallorca Live, Beauregard Festival...

Still scratching my head on how that song became so popular. Coldplay has become much more -measuring my words- simple but they've still not wrote a lyric as cheesy as the ones in Fix You. Dreadful song. 

Disagree. Fix You is a terrific song on just about every level.

So you guys really want this to happen.

 

Wow, imagine one of the most popular artists in the world right now managing to make this song worse. They could literally have picked anybody from the front five rows of the stage to do the same thing and it would have sounded the same. Even Chris Martin was encouraging Billie to actually sing. She is so overrated.
