Coldplay Deny They’re Planning Israeli-Palestinian Peace Concerts

Yesterday, the Times of Israel reported that British band Coldplay would be playing two joint “peace concerts” for Israelis and Palestinians “at an outdoor location north of the Dead Sea” during November, “to promote human rights and to bring people together.”

It turns out this was likely a steaming hot pot of bollocks.

Coldplay have denied that they planning to play a pair of concerts near the Dead Sea in a bid to boost peace efforts between Israelis and Palestinians.

The band had allegedly earmarked November 3 and 4 for the outdoor concerts, the Times of Israel reported. A total of 50,000 tickets were said to be going on sale in both Israel and the Palestinian territories.

Rolling Stone now reports that a representative for the group has “denied these reports… saying there’s no truth to any of the story”.

No word yet on whether “there’s no truth to any of the story” means there won’t be a joint concert in Israel, or whether there won’t be any concert here. Although lead singer Chris Martin was spotted here in November, possibly scouting locations.
