Chris Martin loses his voice in New York...

COLDPLAY were forced to cut short their sold-out show at the NEW YORK IRVING PLAZA after singer CHRIS MARTIN had problems with his voice.

Eyewitness reports from the gig state that the band were only three songs into their set on Friday night (February 16) when a visibly unwell Martin had to give up.

The band were scheduled to appear last night at Boston Avalon on their highly anticipated and sold-out tour, before moving on to Chicago, Toronto and Miami next week.

No further details are available at present.
