0804martinpaltrow.jpgChris Martin will be (attempting to) steal the spotlight back from his wife Gwyneth Paltrow soon. She's been in the news for fainting from live-food fasts and being honored by Food Bank NYC, and you know he must be shivering there in her shadow. Well not for long; Martin and his band Coldplay have just announced a free show to help hype up their forthcoming album.

If you're a fan of the fellas, set that alarm clock early tomorrow as the contest for free tickets will be announced on their websiteat 7:15 a.m. (you'll also be allowed to download their new song, "Violet Hills," at that time).

The show isn't until June 23rd, and will be held at Madison Square Garden. Can anyone recall a free concert at MSG prior to this?
