THE CRUSHING OF SOULS: I've been trying to come up with something more soul-destroying than the thought of a bland, empty act playing an ugly, featureless stadium sponsored by a company which sells unpleasant, overpriced, pointless sports gear to credulous masses. And I don't think I can do anything to top Coldplay at the Reebok Stadium. It's part of their stadium tour, where their music - which struggles to fill the space if you listen on headphones - will attempt to fill a stadium.

The full tour dates:
London Crystal Palace Stadium (June 27-28)
Glasgow Bellahouston Park (July 1)
Bolton Reebok Stadium (4-5)

They'll probably play some stuff from the new album, and the hits. And there might be a 'wacky' cover version - or is that Travis does that?
