Coldplay Upset London's Bull And Gate Venue To Close

The 'Every Teardrop Is A Waterfall' stars speak about their memories of playing the Kentish Town spot.

Coldplay have expressed their sadness upon hearing that London's Kentish Town venue, the Bull And Gate is to close.

The 'Paradise' stars managed to perform at the iconic venue during the early days of their career back in 1999.

The band spoke to local newspaper the Camden New Journal to reveal their disappointment upon hearing the news.

"In January 1999, promoter Simon Williams and the great people of the Bull let us bang out five songs in 20 minutes," they said.  "It got us our first NME review and changed our lives forever.

They added: "Long live the Bull. We'll always be grateful." 

Meanwhile, Coldplay were recently forced to cancel the remaining dates on their South American tour.

The band said in a statement that they will have "your corner of the world at the front of our minds when the time comes to do it all again" as they apologised for the news.
