End Of The Road? Coldplay Announce Three-Year Hiatus During Performance In Brisbane


Coldplay have hinted that they are taking a three-year hiatus following their mammoth 'Mylo Xyloto' world tour.

The 'Paradise' hitmakers, who have released a DVD of the world tour, told their audience at their show in Brisbane on Wednesday night, that it would be their "last big show for three years or so."

Frontman Chris Martin broke the news to their crowd at the stadium, saying: "This is the last big show for three years or so. I don't want to stop."

The indie band released their fifth studio album in October 2011, and followed the chart-topping record with a huge 92-date tour in April, after which they travelled to Europe, Asia, Australia and America.

Fans can still expect to see the band perform a few more times before they take their reported hiatus, carrying out a series of shows in Latin America in February 2013 and also joining Jay-Z on stage for a special New Year's Eve concert at Brooklyn's Barclays Center next month.

The news of a hiatus may come as a shock after the band revealed they have begun writing their next studio album, assuring fans that the title will be a lot easier to pronounce than Mylo Xyloto.

Martin told Australian radio station 2DayFM: "The next one we're releasing is much easier to pronounce."

The frontman was hesitant to reveal the title when asked he said: "I can't tell you that!" Chris then turned to guitarist Jonny Buckland and said: "Can I give a hint?" Buckland shook his head and told him: "No."
