A few hours after Israeli media reported on Friday that the British band Coldplay was intending to put on a show in the Jewish state, the group's frontman Chris Martin took to Twitter to say that his band has no such intentions.
Currently on his second visit to Israel in three months, Martin posted a picture along with his message on Coldplay's official Twitter account.
"We are in Israel and Palestine to listen and learn and that's all," he wrote. "There is no concert scheduled, we are just having an interesting and enlightening trip to learn about the area."
Removing any doubt, the former husband of Gwyneth Paltrow added, "The articles suggesting that we have a signed contract are incorrect."
Rumors had been swirling with Martin's tours around the country that he had been scouting a location for a show.
