Q. Dear Oracle, first of all I have to say that yesterday was the most amazing concert I've ever been to, and hope you guys come back pretty soon. My question is, did the Coldplay-shaped puppets made it to Monterrey? they seem to be MIA around here


The Oracle replies:

I'm surprised they survived the tour to be honest. I don't know whether to blame Tequila for their behaviour in Guadalajara; as you can see by that photo they were certainly not at their best. It was a very hot day and they weren't in the mood to go to Zapopan Catedral, Teatro de Gollando or Acueducto.
There was a party here in Monterrey on Wednesday night for all the crew members, Bat for Lashes and of course the band. That was quite a late night and so the following morning the pesky puppets were, as you say, missing in action.
They even refused to have their photo taken with the real band members yesterday.
There will be one last photo but I doubt it will be a scenic shot of this wonderful terrain. It's a shame because I quite fancied taking them on a trip to Mirador del Obispado.
