Q. Hi Oracle, I read that Coldplay travelled to their O2 gig back in December 2011 on the tube and that it was weird for them listening to what their fans were saying about them as no one recognised them. Is this too good to be true?

The Oracle replies:

As far as I know, it was only Chris who travelled by tube to the O2. I didn't hear any such thing about him listening in to what fans were saying about the band though...
What usually happens is that fans can't quite believe it's Chris on the tube so they convince themselves that it can't possibly be him.
It really is the fastest way to travel around London.
