Coldplay: ‘We’re less shit than we used to be’

Chris Martin also has kind words for Nickelback

Coldplay‘s Chris Martin has said that his band are “less shit than they used to be” in an interview to be broadcast tonight.

The singer made the comment to DJ Christian O’Connell after their show in Munich last week.

The concert is being broadcast in full tonight on Absolute Radio, which has today been re-branded from Virgin Radio.


Of the concert, Martin says: “I think our concert is the least shit Coldplay concert at the moment that you could have possibly ever seen. Do you see what I mean? We’re better than we used to be.”

Asked whether the band felt more comfortable playing large venues, Martin commented: “We’ve turned from a Mars Bar into a King-Sized Mars Bar.”

Martin also outs himself as an unlikely fan of Nickelback.

Of the much-maligned Canadian band he says: “I have nothing but respect for Nickelback.

“They take a lot of flak from people who have never done fuck all in their life. And I think they’re great. That is my final word.”

The concert and interview can be heard on Absolute Radio from 7pm (BST) tonight.
