WONDERFUL SHOW ON A SAD DAY
Chris Martin and company proved again why they are a must see concert show! With Alina Bares and Tove Lo providing the opening acts - a mix of soft pop followed by hard techno, setting the stage. The show started with a moment of silence to honor the events of the day and was quietly (and respectfully) followed up with a tribute to Tom Petty. With that, the show began and quickly became a high-energy display of lights, confetti and high-flying musicality. Anyone who has listened to Rock radio know Coldplay's songs/lyrics, which added to the show! Chris Martin loudly encouraged everyone to join in and be one a part of the show. This was led to its grand conclusion with "Viva la Vida", where the crowd sang full-throated through the chorus. Martin allowed his emotion to show through as well. Stopping on a couple of occasions to correct a 'bad start' or confess the emotion he and the band were feeling. When all was done, the crowd left happy, drained, relaxed and feeling good better.

Coldplay's almost 2-hour show Monday night was huge. Chris Martin and company were wonderful transporting us all to a sensory delight. Hard Rock Stadium is massive and the show Coldplay delivered was on an equal scale. From the 3 large screens and the technical visuals to the abundant color everywhere to the fireworks somehow timed perfectly to the music. It was an experience that was uplifting and united the crowd into a state of happiness while even delving into the mad mad world we all find ourselves searching to find ways to cope. Coldplay's message is one of love, kindness and embracing one another's differences. We're all the same in the end. The setlist was a "best of Coldplay" that included a lot from their last two records, "Ghost Stories" and "A Head Full of Dreams", yet the show began with "Yellow" a song from a much earlier record. Things exploded into a synergy of big songs, complex visuals and an energy that engulfed each and every soul present.
