Anti-war Coldplay to tour US


During ‘A Rush Of Blood To The Head’ he changed the lyrics to “Buy a gun and start a meaningless war” in a subtle anti-war protest.

Sexsmith and Dallas-based pop group Eisley will support them when they tour
the US later this year.

Marty: Yes that is really clever, you are about to tour the US, so you slag off the US President, its policies and its military. Hrm, not the brightest career move eh, Martin?

    When Coldplay played in Dallas at the end of January, “Rush of Blood” wasn’t included in the setlist. As I remember, the war wasn’t even brought up. The only political comment was a plug for some Fair Trade organization.
