Fisher hot on Coldplay
The unmistakable beat that rocks the walls of the Ottawa Senators dressing room put a smile on Mike Fisher’s face.

Just another reminder about what awaits the veteran centre and a number of his teammates tonight, when they’ll take in the Coldplay concert at Scotiabank Place.

“Wouldn’t miss it,” Fisher said about the 7:30 p.m. show featuring the British rockers, who currently rate as one of the world’s most popular bands.

Ask Fisher what he likes about Coldplay – he’s obviously not alone in that area – and he’s quick to supply the response.

“They have so many good songs,” he said. “Their sound live… I heard them live two years ago and they’re unbelievable. They’re just one of the best rock bands around. They’re great.”

And yes, he has several of their songs in regular rotation on his iPod. His favourite, though, is an oldie from Coldplay’s debut album, Parachutes, which was released in 2000.

“Their new album (Viva la Vida or Death and All His Friends, the band’s fourth studio release) is good,” said Fisher. “But I like Yellow (the band’s breakthrough hit in the U.S.)… probably, I’d say Yellow (is my favourite).”

Fisher will have plenty of familiar company at the show.

“I think most of the guys are going,” he said.

Viva la Vida was the No. 1 pre-order in iTunes history. It followed up on 2005’s X & Y, which debuted at the top of the music charts in 32 countries (including Canada) and has sold more than 10 million copies worldwide.

Some tickets are still available for tonight’s concert, which serves as a prelude to a 20-show run south of the border. Tickets can be obtained by logging on to www.CapitalTickets.ca, visiting the Scotiabank Place box office or by calling (613) 599-FANS (3267) or 877-788-FANS (3267).
