Chris Martin to Leave Coldplay, Gwyneth Paltrow Wants

Gwyneth Paltrow has been branded the Yoko Oko of Coldplay because she’s trying to assure her husband Chris Martin to leave the band and go solo.
The actress clearly feels her hubby will do better on his own.
“Gwyneth has outright told Chris that he should consider going solo,” a source told Betty Confidential. “She is busy doing all of her projects and she needs him to diversify as well. She doesn’t have a problem with Coldplay, but she needs Chris to think about trying a solo album just to see if he likes it.
“When Gwyneth referenced it, Chris was furious. He loves the band and he has no appetite to different things right now. Chris basically ignored her and walked away.”
In 2004, Paltrow said, “People ask if I will sing with the band or do a duet, but always in anterior of my mind is the Yoko effect. I don’t want to be known as the girl who split up Coldplay.”

Coldplay Intense polished show

On the final performance of the Coldplay group its current US Tour which ends tomorrow in Tampa, Grammy winning Brits Coldplay gave an intense polished show at Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre Friday.

Coldplay may be best known for every thing specially for the heart tugging ballads and mid tempo pop, but their live show transformed softer moments into booming rock songs that are more intense than on record. “Cemeteries of London” played like a modern version of a traditional folk story that swelled to a rhythmic conclusion. “Fix You” created a church-like atmosphere that built to a climax during which Martin twirled like a ragdoll and shuttered as if shot with bullets. And as on the “Viva La Vida” album, “42” morphs from launched piano intro into a spastic rhythmic romp.

At the end of “Strawberry Swing”, the band members weren’t static either they said “God Put a Smile on My Face". Martin sat alone in the centre of the amphitheater for “Hardest Part” as drummer Will Champion echoed his vocals from the stage. Champion proved an indispensable sideman (the Richards to Martin’s Jagger) hitting his kit like a determined wind up toy and singing along throughout the night. He pounded the tympani and bass drum as Martin sprinted back to join in on “Viva La Vida” and “Lost!” They abandoned the stage again for the edge of the lawn where mandolin, resonator guitar, and harmonica set the pace for an acoustic break that included Champion on vocals and guitar and a sincere cover of “Billie Jean.”
The group of the Coldplay took the stage again flashing stark white light on its audience for “Politik” and flying multi colored butterfly confetti into the crowd. Which closes “Viva La Vida,”at the “Death and All His Friends,” fittingly finished the set. Yet the massive hit “The Scientist” was saved for an encore. The triple bill made for an incredibly consistent show capped with Coldplay’s tireless headlining set.
