It looks like Coldplay will be taking a break from live shows very soon. According to Billboard, frontman Chris Martin told the crowd at a Brisbane, Australia, show last week, "This is the last big show for three years or so," and added, "I don't want to stop." Early in the night, Martin promised the crowd, "We're going to play for you the best fucking show in our life."

Coldplay has three gigs set for the end of the year, culminating in a New Year's Eve show at Brooklyn's Barclay's Center with Jay-Z.

The Pack | 2006

Berkeley, California rappers the Pack made their footwear choice clear in 2006 with the song "Vans." The track caught the attention of Too $hort, who signed them to his imprint. MTV refused to play the video for the song, though, claiming it was essentially a commercial for the product. Rapper Lil' B disagreed. "I didn’t know nobody [at] Vans," he said. "I was just a rapper who wore Vans." Even without MTV's support, Lil' B recognized the impact of the track. "God blessed me with such a revolutionary song… People around my age know who really started a lot of the dressing people are into now."
