North London is set to be temporarily short of one celebrity, as Coldplay singer Chris Martin leaves the marital home and wife Gwyneth Paltrow to go on tour around the UK.

Chris and the others in the band are playing a string of huge shows at arenas, in December.

Maybe actress wife Gwyneth will quit the capital city to see hubby Chris play rainy Glasgow, in December.

A tour of football stadiums around the country will follow.

It is all part of promoting new album, Mylo Xyloto.

Life on the road must be fun for Martin and the others, as they surely don’t do it for money.

Coldplay break the mould in the modern music business by being one of the only bands whose every new album outsells the last one.

Coldplay will appear at Arsenal’s Emirates stadium, early next June. Tickets go on sale on Friday, November 18.
