Would they be able to do Wembley in August after the football season has started? Charity Shield will be around then.

With the Charity Shield being the week before, Wembley should be free until the next International Break at the end of September, which gives them plenty of time to sort out the pitch.

The main problems with concerts in August/September is when the ground is being used for regular League Matches and needs to be turned back to football quickly, as memorably demonstrated when Rotherham tried to use Don Valley Stadium the weekend after U2 came to town.

Yep, Hellfest too. Just a hit-and-hope that someone booking the Other fancies a flutter to follow up BMTH, Babymetal etc.

The truth is there will always be metal bands touring around Glastonbury as June is peak metal fest season. I don’t think much of it ever.

Hate is a strong word.

I certainly don’t hate them, I just think Chris Martin is a bit of a git.

I can see some dislike for them … but git ? I struggle to fathom that out something maybe I’ve lost somewhere … but seems like a decent guy and Has helped Glastonbury out in the past (himself also ) and seems to be making some forward steps to lessening the environmental impact too …

Do they always turn up though? 6 years between headline sets and then 5 the next time?

You'd think they play every year the way idiots go on.

We’ve only had two festivals since they last played. There were only three festivals between their 11 and 16 sets.

Even when they’re not playing Chris Martin still finds a way to show up.

Would you turn down the opportunity to play ? I’d milk it for all it’s worth if I were them … and most of us take every opportunity available to be at the farm .. he just likes being on a stage

I know all that. I am sure he’s a great bloke, as you say he’s a dear friend of the festival, socially conscious and a keen supporter of the environment. He does a lot of great work for a lot of great causes…

You still can’t help but look at him and think “git”.

Much like U2, Coldplay are hated because of how big and ubiquitous they are, and because they champion worthy causes. People just love to hate things other people love. (cue predictable reply: "No, I don't hate them because other people love them, I hate them because they're shite!") 

It seems you can be an actual c**t (like Josh Homme for example) and get far less hate than Chris Martin gets.

I think Coldplay are a great band (even if their recent records have been a bit patchy) and will definitely be getting tickets for next summer. That said, still too soon to invite them back to headline Glastonbury.
