Coldplay's Chris Martin Blames London 2012 Olympics After Forgetting Lyrics

1 August 2012, 15:02

The 'Paradise' star jokingly accused the Games of causing his mistake during band's performance in Detroit.

Coldplay's Chris Martin blamed the Olympics after forgetting the lyrics to one of the band's songs at a gig in Detroit.

The singer had just begun singing the piano-led 'Warning Sign' when he abruptly stopped to tell the crowd he had made a mistake.

"I was thinking about the Olympics," Chris joked.

"I was distracted. I was not in the breakup frame of mind and I should have been. I'm going to get back into it. I'm going to stop thinking about pole vault, things like that, and I'm going to focus back in on the song. So is everybody else."

Chris, who lives in London with his wife Gwyneth Paltrow, called the Olympics a "big deal" for the British capital city.

"We've never had the Olympics in our lifetime so you can't blame a band for thinking about it every once in a while - 'God, the f**king Olympics are happening in London!'"

But the 'Every Teardrop Is A Waterfall' singer then told the crowd that the concert was "more important", adding: "F**k the Olympics."



After attempting to restart the song, Chris, who along with Coldplay will perform at the closing ceremony of the Paralympic Games, said: "Please don't tweet that I said, 'F**k the Olympics'.

"I didn't mean that. Please don't turn it into a news story, whatever you do, because we're going to play the end of it. Don't tweet that either! S**t, I'm in a big mess now."

Coldplay are currently on the North American leg of their 'Mylo Xyloto' world tour, which called in the UK earlier this month.
