Q.  Hey Oracle,

I just got Will's drumstick and Jonny's guitar pick whilst recording TOTP on Wednesday (which was amazing by the way). But, I wanted to know if those are the same equipment they use on their live shows or just one that Top of the Pops have provided for them?

Kind regards.

The guys always use their own gear, sticks and picks included so you have their bona fide personal items not once owned by the BBC.

Q.  Dear Oracle,
Could you please tell me where I can find the the TOTP gig?
Thanx a lot..

It hasn't been aired yet and I gave the first transmission date the other day - Christmas Day - so as you're in Cyprus if you can't access BBC1 or BBC iPlayer I am sure it will be fairly easy to find online after that date.

Q.  Hey Oracle, I was lucky enough to win tickets for TOTP on Wednesday. Slightly concerned as there is no definite chance of actually getting in to see the show and I am travelling from quite far away. So I wondered how many are actually allowed in the audience? Would be a nightmare if I didn't get in as I'm a massive Coldplay fan! Thanks a lot.

Yes this does seem to be a concern for many fans. It is usual for TV shows to oversubscribe as they like to make sure they have enough audience members; their approach is better to have too many and turn some away than not enough. I am pretty sure that was mentioned at the time of registering for tickets.
To be perfectly honest even if you know how many people will be allowed in, it won't help as you don't know what time any other fans are planning on arriving... It is indeed a risky venture but if anyone is planning on getting there very early, please make sure you wrap up as it's bitterly cold.

Q.  Dear Oracle,
How and when can we watch Coldplay on TV when they perform at the BBC?

I'm sure Anchorman will announce the times and dates as we get that information. But the first transmission will be at 2pm on Christmas Day BBC1. Last year they actually had two shows over the festive period and repeats so there'll be other chances to catch it.
