Coldplay will apparently take a year off from touring and recording in 2013 while singer Chris Martin moves from England to Los Angeles, according to Gigwise. Martin is reportedly making the move so that his wife, actress Gwyneth Paltrow, can be nearer to her mother, actress Blythe Danner. A source told U.K. tabloid The Sun, "Chris and Gwyneth have wanted to move to Los Angeles for a while. Gwyneth spends a lot of time between the U.K. and the U.S. and she's exhausted . . . Gwyneth spends a lot of time away from her mum, Blythe, and wants to be closer to her as she gets older."
The source added, "Chris was very understanding and is willing to give living in Los Angeles a chance because he's always loved the city. Chris's band won't be working on a new album for at least another year so he has some breathing space to kick back."
Coldplay has been on the road for much of the past year, following the release of 2011's Mylo Xyloto. The band wrapped a lengthy North American tour earlier this month.
The group will next perform on the Stand Up To Cancer fundraising special, which is scheduled to take place on Friday, Sept. 7th, at 8:00 p.m. ET. The show will air on all four major broadcast networks, plus a number of cable channels.
The quartet has also been confirmed to headline the closing ceremony of the 2012 Paralympic Games on September 9th at London's Olympic Stadium. The multi-sport event features athletes with some sort of physical disability.
Gwyneth Paltrow is currently reprising her role as Pepper Potts in the now-filming Iron Man 3.
