Q. When you tour does Coldplay only go to the capitals because I live in Cairns and no one famous plays here.

The Oracle replies:

It's not always Capitals but it is usually cities. They do sometimes play big towns but not everywhere can accommodate the size of the shows in arenas or stadiums.
Plus there needs to be consideration for all a show entails like a great transport system and access for large numbers of visitors (parking etc.).
