Chris Martin reveals stage fright: "I wanted to leave the stage"
Coldplay's frontman has opened up about his experience of being front and centre when his band performs live and admitted that he still suffers from nerves.
Speaking to Le Project Imagine, Chris Martin explained that there was one concert in particular that took place in Birmingham and it had an unexpected effect on him, almost causing him to cut the gig short:
"Normally I have this self-confidence and stuff and it just left like a bird leaving. I wanted to leave the stage."
He revealed that looking to his bandmates for support helped him overcome the sudden bout of stage fright, adding:
"I turned around to tell Will and then I realised – whenever I feel insecure on stage – I always turn around to look at our drummer Will, who's very serious, he looks very serious on stage. But he really is like a rock."
"So I looked around to him and said 'I can't do it, I've got to leave' and he gave me this look – which I can't really put into words so well. But he has this way of looking at me like, it gives me this positive energy, and he does it a lot I realised."
