Coldplay are set to play a huge gig at Knebworth, most likely during summer 2009.
Although no arrangements have been finalised, Martin hinted that that the band were currently in negotiations to book the site.
“We’re trying to book a place that rhymes with Blebworth. We realised there’s a lot of people who don’t like us in Britain but, you know, they don’t have to come,” he said.
Martin also told the station that the band aren’t aiming to beat Robbie Williams‘ three-night run at the venue in 2003, which saw an estimated 375,000 fans attend.
“We’re not gonna do three [nights], Robbie did three. We’d be happy with one. Then the next day can be some kind of caravan conference.”
