Only... well...
The pills are vitamins, and the whiskey is mostly to lubricate Martin's throat for the many quavering high notes to come. "It's pretty exciting back here, right?" cracks drummer Will Champion, who spends most of his pre-show time playing a PlayStation 3 soccer game. "It's just like Mötley Crüe!"
So writes Rolling Stone's Brian Hiatt, on location at Coldplay's Dallas date at the American Airlines Center back on November 19. The piece, which can be read in full here, goes on to further explain the banalities of Coldplay's live show ("The show gets a lot of mileage out of simple tricks"), while managing, quite deftly mind you, to avoid any direct "BORING!" accusations aimed at the band's musical output.

Gotta imagine that wasn't easyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy
