Coldplay frontman Chris Martin unloaded on a couple of autograph collectors following a benefit show by the British band in Los Angeles on Monday night (January 20th).
According to TMZ, Martin was approached by what was described as several “assertive” autograph seekers shortly after the show. Instead of going patiently through the motions, Martin snapped at them and asked that they show him some “decency” after he played what he called a “s**tty” gig.
Martin did take a moment to collect himself and settled down quickly, proceeding to sign some items before hurriedly walking away.
The concert itself was a benefit for Reform LA Jails, which campaigns for alternatives to incarceration and prison reform. Coldplay's intimate, 19-song set at the Hollywood Palladium featured a healthy serving of songs from the band's new LP Everyday Life, as well as a few rarities.
One of those songs, the early fan favorite “Amsterdam,” was abandoned after Martin forgot the lyrics — prompting him to beg the audience, “Please don't put this on YouTube.” Perhaps he was still thinking about it when he got hit up for his signature after the show.
