Q.  On the Ghost Stories Live 2014 DVD, are all the songs performed on the televised concert included, or just the Ghost Stories songs only?

If you scroll down the original news article that Anchorman posted on this site, you will see the full track listing.
It's not like the Live 2012 release, hence the specific name - Ghost Stories Live 2014.

Q.  Hey Oracle,
How many concerts did you attend while the band was touring for Ghost Stories ?


There weren't all that many shows on the GS tour but I was lucky enough to see 3 of the official tour dates (2 London and 1 Paris) plus the Radio 1's Big Weekend & the Radio 2 theatre show.
It's hard to believe it's just over a year since I watched their SXSW iTunes Festival show online in the middle of the night (UK time).

Q.  Hey guys, I have a million questions that i could ask all day but honestly all i want to say is thank you so much for every word you guys recorded! We have never meant but honestly you guys have helped me out more than the people around me all day. So thank you

Now for a question, you guys have been all around the world, but is there somewhere you still haven't visited that you would like to??

Sadly, such is the nature of touring that there are always places that artists hardly ever / never get to.
I receive many requests from all over the world - notably Greece & India but also Maldives and though the band may have visited there individually, they haven't appeared on the tour schedule.
Bands don't sit and choose where to go / not go so petitions don't work.

Q.  Oh mighty Oracle. Seems to me like you're the best source for an answer to this question: When will Coldplay going on their Ghost Stories tour? I am a huge fan and I'm hoping that it's soon. Follow-up question: Could they please come and play in Buffalo, New York? It would make me extremely happy! ?

I'm a little confused as to why this question is being asked so regularly. I hate to break it to you (even though Chris did himself a while ago) but the Ghost Stories tour - albeit a very small tour in terms of dates and venue sizes - has been and gone. They visited New York too, oops.
We've no current tour news but hopefully you'll catch them next time round.

Q.  Hi Oracle, Hope you're weather in London is better than mine in Chicago. I'm wondering, if you were to buy tickets to a Coldplay show, where would you try to sit? I like the idea of being on the runway or stage, but people there seems to spend the show looking up. I'd love to be close and get a great view at once, if that's possible.

It's all down to personal choice. Arenas are floor seated, stadiums are standing so you may wish to sit at the sides.
I remember once buying tickets (on the phone) for the Rolling Stones and they offered me seats at the back of the stadium. I asked if there was anything closer to the front and ended up 4 rows from the stage. Sometimes people assume you want the overall best view of the whole show - lights, effects etc.
I don't like standing for hours on end so as long as I'm not right at the back, I'm happy anywhere. In fact, scrap that. To be there at all is better than not!

Coldplay have had a runway and the 2nd & 3rd stages in more recent years so you have different vantage points depending where you are.
Big shows have screens so you can see close-ups and what's going on though.

To your question: For you, I'd suggest by the second stage so you get a bit of both. Me? I usually get to sit at the sides with a great view but once had 2nd row seats when I was with my family. That was ace but a bit weird.

Q.  Can we conclude that the GS "tour" is over now?

Yes. I think I receive more questions about touring than anything else. Especially since the Ghost Stories tour wasn't the usual world tour but there won't be any further dates for that album specifically.
Obviously I'd usually guide people towards the Tour section but if there's nothing there - there's nothing. I'd be the last place to go really because we'd announce dates in news & as I mentioned, the tour dates would also appear in the tour section.
There's nothing pending so I can't tell you more than that just now. It means we've all got something to look forward to but it's currently an undefined date in the future.

Q.  Has Coldplay ever played in New Jersey?

Oh yes, between 2003 and 2012 Coldplay have played NJ many times - both as part of their own tours and at the All Points West Festival.

Q.  Hi there Oracle! I'd like to know which country had the most numbers of Coldplay's concert and also if there is any song that had never been played live, is there? Thanks so much for your time!

It probably won't surprise anyone that USA has had the most number of concerts. Given its size, it's hardly a shock statistic.
For anyone that's interested, their home country comes in second.

I've talked about which songs haven't been played before. There aren't many if we're sticking with albums only (not b-sides, EP tracks etc.) Off the top of my head, Twisted Logic always comes up as one obvious one given the tour at the time of its appearance was called Twisted Logic.

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.  Hello Oracle!
I know that Coldplay has gotten a lot more narrow in their selection of tour spots, but do you think there is a chance that the band could ever come to Houston? If not, so be it, That's life. But I figured if anyone knew you would! Thanks!

You have to understand, the Ghost Stories tour is not to be compared with tours gone by or any future plans; it was unique to that period. There's more than a good chance as historically since 2003, the band have played Houston many times so there is no reason they won't again. I'm not taking bets or placing odds on where the band will tour though because it's way too soon to speculate.
