For sale: Chris Martin

Coldplay singer auctions private gig for school

Chris Martin has put his services up for sale to the highest bidder.

The Coldplay frontman has offered to play a private gig for whoever wins an auction being held in aid of his local school.

Martin will play one song for Cannonbury Primary School’s Auction Of Promises, which takes place tomorrow (May 18).


The Coldplay frontman will “perform one of the band’s songs in your own front room”, however there is a stipulation – “a piano must be provided… and max of 10 people in audience”.

The gig has to take place within six months.
