Q.  At Radio One's Big Weekend back in May, what was the band and audience singing at the end of Fix You? It's been driving me nuts because I couldn't quite understand what it was they were saying. Thanks Oracle!

It was a bit rude / sweary so I better not say!

Q.  Hi O
Can you tell me Chris said can we do the end again at Radio 1 Big Weekend and Chris said to Will you don't have it! What did he not have? Thx

I was at the show but was already sitting in the car ready to do a runner. I have a feeling that time is what Chris did not have. The end of Fix You went a little haywire with improv and crowd singing.
I imagine Chris wanted to do the end again but Will (likely) said they didn't have time.

Q.  Hey Oracle,

At BBC Radio 1's Big Weekend 2014 during the middle of the opening song Paradise Jonny signaled someone who I'm guessing was offstage with a thumb going down. Can you tell me what that meant?

You see a lot of musicians doing this. When you see the thumb / finger gesturing up or down, they are signalling to their sound engineer. It's to let them know that they need to have what's coming through their monitors turned up or down.

Q.  Hey O,
Before they sang Oceans at Glasgow Chris said something. I heard this is for all the people who lost their art at Glasgow? Could you explain what he said? Thanks!!

The day before Coldplay performed at Radio 1's Big Weekend (23 May), a fire at the Glasgow School of Art destroyed part of the Mackintosh building.
Firefighters managed to salvage about 70% of the contents but many students lost a lot of work.

Q.  Hello! I understand that Coldplay will perform at BBC 1 Radio Weekend, do you know whether it will be broadcast on Television or Radio?

Thanks Oracle!

As you probably know - given it's been and gone - it was broadcast. If you missed it, or wish to watch it again, you can watch highlights via the BBC's red button.
