Coldplay singer ailing

Written by Scott Mervis on .

If Coldplay even makes it to Pittsburgh Saturday night for the opening of the Post-Gazette Pavilion season, what kind of shape will they be in?

Coldplay canceled its show Wednesday night in Saratoga Springs, N.Y., due to singer Chris Martin losing his voice. According to The Sun, "He has also been in agony after burning his arm on scorching hot electrical equipment backstage."

Saturday's show is the first one after that cancellation, so we'll have to see if he can bounce back.

And we'll have to stay tuned for the chance of a last-minute postponement.

The show has been bumped up to 7 p.m. with Howling Bells and Pete Yorn.
