Coldplay delay gig to watch England vs Andorra – Daily Gossip
Welcome to the Daily Gossip: your daily stop-off to find out who in the world of music has been up to what.

Today's top gossip:

Coldplay delayed their gig on Saturday (September 6) at the Palau Sant Jordi Arena in Spain so they could catch England's match against Andorra, which took place at the Olympic Stadium in Barcelona – right next door (The Sun).

From the papers:

Oasis' Liam Gallagher bowed towards Mecca in honour of Sheikh Mansour bin Zayed, Manchester City's new owner, while in Toronto (The Sun).

Justin Timberlake had to dodge punches at the Fashion Rocks party at the Rainbow Bar in New York after a fan tried to take a snap of him on her mobile phone, sending JT's bouncer wild. The incident sparked a brawl, with Rihanna, Mariah Carey and Beyonce having to duck for cover (Daily Mirror).

Pete Doherty has said he's not sure he's over ex-squeeze Kate Moss (live).

Girls Aloud's Nadine Coyle has been stepping out with a new man, New York Gitnas NFL player Jason Bell (The Sun).

Foals' Yannis Philippakis has said he has successfully managed to dodge bumping into the Sex Pistols after being involved in an incident with John Lydon and Bloc Party's Kele Okereke – despite being put in a dressing room next door to him at the recent Electric Picnic festival (Daily Star).

Sir Paul McCartney enjoyed a candle-lit dinner with Nancy Shevell at the Bamboo Japanese restaurant in the Hamptons on New York's Long Island (Daily Mirror).

The Killers' Dave Keuning went to a house party in Brixton, but ended up wandering around Elephant And Castle because he didn't know his way back to his hotel. He was annoyed because party guests kept asking him to sing Killers karaoke (Independent).

Kid Rock says he hasn't had a good night's sleep in years – because he can't stop writing tunes (The Sun).

Duffy guzzled lynchee martinis at the Fashion Rocks party in New York (Daily Mirror).

Alicia Keys asked for ketchup with her fries at the Marriott Courtyard, New York (Daily Mirror).
