Q.  Dear Oracle
A simple question, overall, how many concerts have been performed by Coldplay??

Apparently there have been 990 Coldplay shows.

Q.  Did you ever have to interrupt a show because of an annoying fan?

If not, what was the weirdest fan demand you guys ever received?

Yes! Well, that sounds awful so I shall rephrase it. Chris & Jonny were performing at the Little Noises charity event. As Chris started playing The Scientist, a fan up on the balcony began tapping a tambourine out of time. It was very off putting so Chris paused and asked them to stop.

As it's a "yes" that makes the second question redundant. Phew.

Q.  Hi Oracle!
I was curious to see what the smallest-scale concert that Coldplay has ever done and how small would they go?
Thanks!

Obviously when the band started they were playing pubs & clubs with very small capacities. The last time they played anywhere as small was December 2011 when they went back to perform at Dingwalls (Camden, London) which has a capacity of less than 500.
It's not a case of how small would they go, but can they go and for what reason.
Dingwalls was a special radio event and obviously their production had to be reduced heavily for such a tiny venue.
I have to say, watching Chris on that stage being restricted, unable to do his usual running around, was like watching a caged tiger!

Q.  Is it true that Coldplay played over 100 gigs in 1998, before getting signed?

No, more like 10. They signed their record & publishing deals in 1999 but there were only a few gigs in 1998/9 before that point.
