It could be paradise

MUSIC often divides opinion, and there are few bands more likely to provoke such a debate than Coldplay.

Chris Martin and co have come a long way since he strutted along the beach singing (ITALS) Yellow (ITALS), and love them or hate them they’re still going strong.

The group arrive in Glasgow this week to play the SECC – one of many on the first UK arena tour in two years.

It coincides with the launch of new album (ITALS) Mylo Xyloto (ITALS) arguably the hardest-pronounced album of the year, although a few listens to the television advert have since convinced this reporter that it’s (ITALS) my-lo zy-lot-o (ITALS) (of course).

Fans will flock to this show – in fact, if you are one then you probably have your ticket ready and waiting.

If not, you can wait in the pub and have that argument yet again with your gig-going friends.

Let’s face it, the bar in question will probably be playing latest single (ITALS) Paradise (ITALS) anyway – or one of those diehard fans is bound to request it.

Coldplay play the SECC on Saturday. Tickets are priced at £47.50, available from 0844 395 4000.
