Coldplay to Play Colbert Report, SNL, Today Show & More…
It seems like the new hot ticket for British bands is making the ‘New York City circuit.’ Radiohead did it last month, stopping by the Colbert Report for an interview/performance, before playing Saturday Night Live and even two more than sold-out performances at Manhattan’s Roseland Ballroom.
Now fellow Brits Coldplay are preparing a Big Apple platter of their own. In anticipation of their upcoming album Mylo Xyloto, due out October 24th, the band will perform on the Colbert Report this Thursday, October 20th, followed by another performance on the Today Show on Friday.
The band will then take a quick detour to the West Coast for an appearance on The Ellen Degeneres Show October 27th, before returning to NYC for their fourth appearance on Saturday Night Live on November 12th.
If that doesn’t get fans’ panties in a twist, a third song has leaked from the upcoming album. This one, entitled “Princess of China,” features a Chris Martin/Rihanna duet over some synth-laden hysteria.
