Coldplay frontman Chris Martin hinted at the group's Brisbane show last week that the band would be taking a three-year break from touring, according to Billboard.

Billboard writer Lars Brandle noted that before finishing a 20-song set, Martin announced, "This is the last big show for three years or so," Martin told the stadium crowd. "I don't want to stop."

New England-area fans may be in luck (if they can get their hands on tickets.) Coldplay is slotted for a sold-out show at the Mohegan Sun Arena on Uncasville, Conn. on Dec. 29 before heading to Brooklyn, N.Y. for a duo of shows at the Barclays center on Dec. 30 and 31.

Coldplay will co-headline the New Year's Even performance with rapper Jay-Z. The Brooklyn native is part-owner of the Barclays Center home team, the Brooklyn Nets.

This will not be the first time the two acts have joined forces for a concert. The two have performed together twice in the past, including a show on New Year's Eve 2010 in Las Vegas.
