Ashcroft Reunites With Coldplay for Tour

Rockers Coldplay plan to turn the second leg of their 2006 winter tour in North America into a super gig by inviting former The Verve star Richard Ashcroft to open for them.

Ashcroft joined the group on stage at Live 8 for a version of The Verve's anthem "Bittersweet Symphony" and will now join the "Fix You" band on their tour starting March 20.

Fiona Apple will support the group on all other dates on the tour, which begins in Vancouver, Canada on January 25.
