Coldplay plan intimate gig as they take trip down memory lane

Coldplay will return to where they staged one of their earliest gigs to play an intimate show in front of just a few hundred people.

Chris Martin and his bandmates will entertain a small group of lucky fans booking London hotels at Camden's Dingwalls venue on Tuesday December 6th, with the show then being broadcast by BBC Radio 2 a week later.

The group played at the venue back in 1998 in order to raise money for their debut LP, with tickets costing just £4.

Commenting on the concert, which follows in the footsteps of similar shows for BBC Radio 2 by Elbow and Noel Gallagher, head of music Jeff Smith said: "I can't remember a time when Radio 2's live music offering has been so diverse and exciting."

Since 1998, Coldplay have gone on to have a number of top-selling albums and have played to some of the biggest audiences around the world.

The band recently announced that they would be playing a UK stadium tour, with gigs planned for the Emirates in London and Sunderland's Stadium of Light among others.
