Q. Hi there:)
Quick and easy question: Does Coldplay ever play random shows in the U.S. that aren't on their tours?

The Oracle replies:

Not random in the sense that they turn up unannounced and play but they do perform at smaller clubs, radio stations, TV programmes & once a barbecue - all of which were part of promo and tickets were available to the public by either competition or (as with TV) applying for studio tickets.
