Recent tour reviews
I had always heard Coldplay were a fantastic band to see live. They did not disappoint last night at Fedex Field, right in the midst of their joyous and decidedly over-the-top Head Full of Dreams tour.
The show began with an explosion of color and light (including the LED wristbands supplied to every concertgoer) in the titular track on the band's touring album. Then came fan-favorite "Yellow," followed by "Every Teardrop is a Waterfall," the ever-popular "The Scientist," and "Birds" (the latter was a bit of a personal disappointment as it replaced the brilliant "God Put a Smile Upon Your Face" from recent setlists). This part of the show finished with the anthem "Paradise," featuring an incredible remix outro.
Next the show slowed down for an intimate trio of songs (most of us actually took a seat). This included one of the better tracks from the sub-par "Ghost Stories", "Magic."
Soon, however, things picked up with the timeless piano strokes of "Clocks," themed to a magical red light show. Next came the lighthearted "Charlie Brown." Before it began, lead singer Chris Martin asked everyone to put away their phones and simply enjoy the show. This was followed by the radio hit "Hymn for the Weekend," a candlelit (okay...Iphone flashlight lit) "Fix You," and "Viva la Vida." This last one was remarkable, as nearly the entire stadium knew the lyrics and sang along to the triumphant "Oh-oh-ohhhh" chant. The groovy "Adventure of a Lifetime" finished off this section, featuring Chris gettin' down with the audience, asking everyone to "Get low!"
Then came the highlight of the night for me: an acoustic quad of older (*cough* better *cough*) Coldplay songs which were as intimate as they were nostalgic. The lovely riffs of "In my Place" started off the set. "Don't Panic" was sung by drummer Will Champion; it's one of my favorites. But it couldn't top what was (for me) the best song of the night: "Trouble." Somber but beautiful in its own way, "Trouble" is a rare find in the setlists of today's Coldplay and was absolutely fantastic. Finally came another rare gem: "Green Eyes," which was somewhat marred by Chris's well-intentioned attempt at giving the local Redskins some luck (HA! what folly) by changing the lyrics.
The finale of the show was the hopeful and popular trio of "Something Just like This," "A Sky Full of Stars," and "Up and Up." This last track was played against the backdrop of the magical and visually stunning music video for the song.
And if there were two adjectives to sum up the show as a whole, they would be just that: magical and visually stunning. Thanks for an awesome show, Coldplay!

First of all I need to just say wow! Wow! Yesterday I experienced one of the greatest nights of my life. Yesterday I really did feel like I was part of something special, something so big and beautiful. The love, the happiness and the excaitment people were feeling last night were something you can't put words on. We stood in the rain for so many hours, we sat in a que and then we stood in the rain again.. but let me just say that when Coldplay came on stage they put on the best god damn show ever. You could really feel their thankfulness during the show. They promised us (in Chris Martins own words) "The best fucking show ever" and let me tell you it was! During the night I got to experience people from different countries dancing and singing along together, I got to experience that moment when Chris decided to write a new song about Sweden and Gothenburg! The night was amazing in so many ways. And just as he said during the night, that he believes when people are working together and last night everybody in that arena stood together. We celebrated the music, the evening and most of all we celebrated the love. Because in the end of the day Love is what matters and it will always win.
Yesterday was beautiful, just pure beautiful!
A Coldplay concert is a real face to face experience for a someone who love their songs. It may not be an intimate experience but considering the legions of fans that they have only a concert can accommodate everyone who are waiting all their lives for a chance to hear them live. and they never disappoint. A total performance complete with lasers and light and firework BUT without much fanfare, just them singing & playing their hearts OUT song after song alone or in harmony with the fans some crying, most gleefully dancing to their upbeat song or swaying OR slow dancing to slow Fix You or Yellow and probably thinking of someone they "cannot replace". Chris Martin is an awesome guy and so are the rest of the band. May their personal lives be as awesome as their professional lives, they deserve that too. as to Singapore, it may not be as engaging as it would be in the Philippines but hey, no one can complain; i had the best time celebrating my birthday in one of the best stadium this side of town with around 50K Coldpay fans celebrating with me :) :). Long live Coldplay, may you continue to bring joy to you fans worldwide. Looking forward to another Coldplay concert experience in the future.

Coldplay at Etihad Stadium Manchester 2023 – stage times, support act, tickets and setlist
It's a massive gig for the city - here's what you need to know if you're heading down.
Coldplay will finally touch down in Manchester this month for their long-awaited Music of the Spheres World Tour.
The group, fronted by Chris Martin, will be performing a whopping four nights at the 60,000-capacity Etihad Stadium, home ground of Manchester City.
It’s the first time they’ve brought this tour to the city, choosing London and Glasgow on last year’s run of shows.
Coldplay are one of the most successful and popular bands of the last three decades, with nine albums and endless sold-out concerts in their back catalogue.
They’re also famed for putting on a staggering live show.
This 2023 tour promises to be as environmentally beneficial as possible . They’ve even added a kinetic dance floor that harvests energy from the audience’s dancing, and installed electricity-generating pedal bikes so that the crowd can recharge the band’s battery by having a little cycle.
If you’re heading to see Coldplay at the Etihad Stadium in Manchester, here’s everything you need to know.
When are Coldplay performing in Manchester?
Coldplay will be taking over the Etihad Stadium for FOUR nights – quite a feat.
They’ll be performing on Wednesday 31 May, Thursday 1 June, Saturday 3 June and Sunday 4 June.
Are there still Coldplay tickets available?
Demand for tickets when they went on sale was phenomenally high – fans reported being in 400,000-strong virtual queues .
So as you might expect, tickets are extremely hard to come by at this point.
At the time of writing, there was one single, lonely seat left in the entire venue for the band’s opening show – and absolutely nothing for subsequent dates.
Keep checking See Tickets here for any last-minute releases.
And if you try to buy tickets second-hand, make sure you’re using a reputable resale site so you don’t get caught out by scammers.
Who is supporting Coldplay in Manchester?
Coldplay have called upon the phenomenally talented Glasgow group Chvrches to be their main support act in Manchester.
The trio, fronted by Lauren Mayberry, are famed for hit singles including Get Out, The Mother We Share, and Gun.
Naturally, for a gig of this scale, one support act won’t do – Coldplay will also be supported by Manchester electronic-indie band Porij.
Each of their songs feels like a love letter to the Hacienda rave scene and bands which came before like New Order.

What are the stage times?
According to the Man City site, these are the stage times for Colplay and their support acts.
- Campus opening time – 2pm
- Doors open – 5pm
- Porij – 6pm-6.30pm
- Chvrches – 7pm-7.45pm
- Coldplay – 8.15pm-10.15pm
What’s the expected setlist?
Setlists will always be subject to change as artists hone their live show, but this is what Coldplay played on their most recent gig in Barcelona.
Higher Power Adventure of a Lifetime Paradise The Scientist Viva la Vida Something Just Like This (The Chainsmokers & Coldplay cover) Magic What’s Love Got to Do With It (Graham Lyle cover) (with Lauren Mayberry) Charlie Brown Yellow Human Heart People of the Pride Clocks Infinity Sign Hymn for the Weekend Aeterna My Universe (Coldplay x BTS cover) A Sky Full of Stars Sunrise Bamboléo (Gipsy Kings cover) (with Gipsy Kings) Nel blu, dipinto di blu (Domenico Modugno cover) (with Gipsy Kings) Humankind Fix You Biutyful
How to get to the Etihad Stadium
Public-transport wise, the Metrolink is the most direct way to get to the Etihad Stadium (and its dedicated tram stop Etihad Campus), which is just a few stops away from Manchester Piccadilly.
Both Holt Town and Velopark Metrolink stops, located on either side of the Etihad Campus stop, will not be open for at least an hour after an event at the stadium.
The trams will be very busy though, and the weather looks good, so you might prefer to walk – it’s around a 30 minute stroll from town with this safe walking route recommended.
If you need to drive, official car parking is priced at £25 for cars, £50 for coaches, and £40 for mini buses.
There are unofficial car parks near the stadium too but make sure you’re not getting ripped off.
Weather forecast in Manchester for Coldplay
Oh guys, you’re in luck – for once in its life Manchester has a stunning weather forecast for the entire run of Coldplay shows.
It’s set to be sunny with highs of 19 degrees on Wednesday and Thursday, then there’s more sunshine with a high of 20 degrees on Saturday and Sunday. Glorious.

Well hello there, you fine music-loving folks. If you’re here it’s because you love good tunes and are always on the lookout for new local artists and, lucky for you, Manchester is always full to bursting with ’em.
All that being said, it’s a good job you’ve just stumbled across a new regular series from The Manc Audio , where we’ll be spotlighting all the best Manc music we’ve been listening to over the course of each month throughout 2024.
We’re in the privileged position of being able to keep in the loop when it comes to the sheer wealth of 0161’s up-and-coming bands, solo artists, DJs and more, and we’re all about sharing the wealth as the saying goes.
So, let’s not faff about any further, here are five Manchester artists we’ve been listening to this January and we hope you’ll like them too. Let’s ‘av it, shall we?
Manc bands we’ve been listening to over the past month
First up on the list is Sugarstone, an alternative rock band originally from Preston but now based in Manchester who are spearheading the synth-punk movement here in 0161.
They’ve gone through a bit of a makeover and sound change recently, moving away from the glam approach over the last 18 months or so and opting for a slightly heavier but still with lots of distorted sounds and plenty of electronics remaining in the mix.
Each month we’re going to pick out three tracks we reckon you should start with and for this first entry, we’re spotlighting ‘Hostile’ and ‘Tender Hook’ off their latest EP for that more in-your-face approach they’re leaning towards lately, as well as ‘Can’t Help My Machine’ for keeping the digital presence alive.

Alternative electronic at its finest as we see it. Porij are pretty popular in The Manc office and for good reason: they sprawl in their variety of sounds, can somehow suit almost every mood imaginable and seem to draw influence from almost every genre and culture you can think of.
Some call it art pop but all we know is it’s dancey and we LOVE it. And we’re not the only ones: they’ve collaborated with the likes of Metronomy, as well as Greater Manchester locals Interplanetary Criminal and rising spoken word artist Antony Szmierek, not to mention being ripe for remixers.
We’re slightly obsessed with their current single ‘My Only Love’ released earlier this month but ‘Nobody Scared’ is undoubtedly their biggest track and it’s not hard to see why (the chillest of bops) and so many could come in the third but we’ll settle on ‘Lose Our Minds’ for now. Ask us again later and it’ll change.

3. Balancing Act
In at number three is Balancing Act. They’ve got everything from third and fourth record Arctic Monkeys, and frontman Kai Jon Roberts certainly exerts plenty of that Alex Turner swag here and there, to moments of Cage The Elephant or maybe even Radiohead in parts.
There isn’t any other place to start with these lads than their most popular track, ‘A Little More Time’ — the kind of tune that feels like you’re sat smoking a cigar and sipping a drink in a cabaret bar — ‘Cheshire Smile’ it’s probably our second favourite and more of indicative of their indie roots and then the beautiful ‘Rabbit Hole’. That should you a little taste of everything.
Like any band with the potential to go far, these guys still feel like they’re doing plenty of experimenting when it comes to their sound and, if anything, we’d say it’s in those moments when they shine the most.

4. The Deep Blue
Now these lot just make us so happy. Well, sad-happy to be more specific. The indie girl band have absolutely nailed those often upbeat and catchy melodies with slightly less jolly lyrics that always make for a great song.
If you’re looking for comparisons, you’ll get a bit of HAIM in the all-girl and often bass-driven funk but with the harmonies almost closer to something like The Staves. You get more of the latter the further you go back, having first started out in 2021, but they quickly draw other parallels with The xx and The Corrs.
Having not long finished up a short run of shows with the lovable Leigh local, The Lottery Winners, they’ve got a lot of love among other Manchester artists. As for the songs we’re picking out, you can’t argue against arguably the best known ‘Bad Tattoo’ with Alex Amor, ‘Yellow and Gold’ was one of their first tracks we ever heard so it’s going in there, and the immensely catchy ‘How About It?’.

5. Witch Fever
Last but not least, we’re finishing with a bunch of absolute ragers in the form of Witch Fever, who never fail to deliver that more aggressive brand of post-punk, grunge and all-around reliable rock. Lead singer Amy Walpole has labelled everyone from the Cancer Bats to Sugarstone themselves as influencing the band’s sound and there’s plenty more in there too, believe us.
We don’t think it’s getting too far ahead of ourselves to tip this furious four-piece for big things, having toured with fellow hardcore lovers Hot Milk and scored some decent festival slots over the past couple of years. Walpole’s voice alone is almost as if Dolores from The Cranberries loved screaming her head off even more over even heftier guitar riffs and had the added attitude of early Wolf Alice.
If that doesn’t sell you, these aren’t for you. The title track from their debut album Congregation is just immense; ‘In Birth’ is a perfect slope towards their heaviest stuff, and we have a real soft spot for 2019’s ‘Bezerk(h)er’, which incidentally happens to be one of our favourite track titles for a long time — and we usually hate it when artists mess with punctuation.

And that’s it for your first edition of our new monthly look at the best up-and-coming Manchester artists that are getting us very excited.
2023 was an absolute belter for new music in our region and across the North West in general, for that matter, and we can’t wait to see what this year has in store for us.
Finally, the best part about this series is that we want you to let us know about all the best new tunes you come across too; this is a collective effort, guys — don’t let us down.
See you in Feb and be sure to keep tuned into our Audio page this year if you know what’s good for ya’.

The Manchester Food and Drink Festival Awards have named the best restaurants, bars, individuals and more in our city, in a glittering ceremony at New Century.
The MFDF Awards took place on Monday evening, championing the best of the city’s hospitality industry across 18 categories.
From the highly sought-after Restaurant of the Year award, to Chef of the Year and the new Takeaway of the Year award, more than 350 people piled into New Century for the celebrations.
Each category was packed with brilliant food and drink businesses from across Greater Manchester, with several awards dedicated to the people who keep the industry ticking.
The Manchester Food and Drink Festival Awards shortlist was compiled by the MFDF judging panel, made up of food and drink critics and writers (hello, including us here at The Manc…)
Then the public had their chance to vote for their hospitality heroes, with some category scores being combined with the results of secret shopping visits from the judging panel.
Highlights include Higher Ground scooping Newcomer of the Year (on the same day they received a Bib Gourmand from Michelin), Fat Pat’s nabbing Food Trader of the Year, and Erst taking home the coveted Restaurant of the Year Award.
Alexa Stratton-Powell, Festival Director of Manchester Food and Drink Festival Awards commented: “We’re delighted to announce the winners of the 2023 MFDF Awards. Times are more challenging than ever for the hospitality industry, which has made it all the more important to champion our fantastic nominees and winners tonight.
“Shining a light on the city’s incredible independent restaurants, bars, cafes and everything in between is what the awards are all about and we’ve loved bringing everyone together to celebrate.

Coldplay, MIT Live Music Climate Change Report Due in June 2024
Academia and the music business are joining forces to reduce the environmental impact of live music events.
By Mix Staff
Cambridge MA (January 30, 2024)—Academia and the record business are joining forces to suggest practical solutions to reduce the environmental impact of live music events at every level, from pubs and clubs to stadiums.
The Massachusetts Institute of Technology ’s Environmental Solutions Initiative (MIT ESI) will conduct a comprehensive study of the live music industry’s carbon with co-funding and support from Warner Music Group (WMG), Live Nation and Coldplay . The study will kick off with an initial research phase, resulting in an Assessment Report of Live Music and Climate Change, focused on the UK and US markets, which is anticipated to be completed in July 2024.
This report aims to develop a comprehensive assessment of the relationship between live music and climate change; identify key areas where the industry and concert goers can make tangible improvements to reduce emissions and drive planet-positive outcomes; and provide a detailed analysis of the latest developments in green technology and sustainable practices.
Mix Live Blog: Wildfires Vs. Concert Production
MIT ESI, a climate and environmental academic research and solutions group, will recommend scientifically informed actions and policies that can be implemented and replicated across the entire live music industry to reduce its environmental footprint and establish a sustainable future for live events.
Coldplay, which launched its current Music of the Spheres World Tour—which began in March 2022—with a pledge to cut emissions by 50%, has also made a world-first commitment to manufacture all physical records for its upcoming 2024 album from recycled plastic bottles. In June 2023, the band reported that it had reduced greenhouse gas emissions from the tour by 47% compared to its A Head Full of Dreams stadium tour, which ran from March 2016 through November 2017.
For its part, WMG is committed to lowering carbon emissions, reducing waste and aligning with global efforts to tackle climate change. The company created a large-scale release of Coldplay’s “re-vinyl” Music of the Spheres album made of 100% recycled vinyl raw materials in 2022. WMG will provide its industry observations, encompassing internal data and insights, to MIT for the report.
Fan transportation can be one of the top contributors to emissions related to live music. In 2022, Live Nation partnered with Coldplay and major public transportation providers to offer fans free or discounted rides to incentivize and encourage green travel. This initiative supported a 59% average increase in public transport ridership on show days across four US cities.

Coldplay concert in Singapore: Review and setlist of the band's first night at the National Stadium
The first Singapore show of Coldplay's record-breaking Music Of The Spheres world tour saw a mix of electrifying and heartwarming performances, despite a few technical hiccups, at the Singapore National Stadium.

This audio is AI-generated.
It finally happened. After months of lamenting my inability to secure a ticket , I eventually snagged a seat at the first of Coldplay's six shows in Singapore this year. Suffice it to say, the months of agony paid off.
Music Of The Spheres marks the British rock band's return to Singapore – seven years after their A Head Full of Dreams tour – and they did not disappoint. In fact, one could say they've achieved a Higher Power.
The night started with a series of performances by opening acts Jinan Laetitia and Jasmine Sokko – both of whom captivated concert-goers with their respective charms.
Indonesian singer Jinan Laetitia soothed the crowd with her ethereal voice while Singaporean singer-songwriter Jasmine Sokko worked her magic with her masterful crowd work. The way these two artistes commanded the stage deserves praise and I'm sure they've succeeded in converting many new fans.
At 8.30pm, the National Stadium drowned in a sea of screams as the members of Coldplay emerged from under the stage and made their way up, before launching into the songs Music Of The Sphere and Higher Power.
The crowd, myself included, immediately got hyped up upon hearing Chris Martin's emotional vocals and the group's mesmerising instrument skills. Add the dazzling lights from our LED wristbands into the mix and it seemed like we were in for a smooth-sailing ride.
That is until it was time for Coldplay to perform The Scientist and Paradise.
Due to a technical fault with the screen, the group had to restart Paradise which admittedly dampened the vibe slightly. But hey, it was a minor inconvenience and Coldplay bounced back quickly.
What was weird, however, was when Chris Martin's piano stopped working as he was singing The Scientist. This prompted him to stop the performance and ask the stage crew to get it fixed.
At this point, the show could have easily stopped dead in its tracks and I wouldn't have blamed Coldplay. However, Martin – being the consummate professional that he is – immediately joked with the audience to diffuse the tension.
Without missing a beat, he then partnered with Jonny Buckland to perform an acoustic version of The Scientist, with Buckland's guitar replacing the piano – giving birth to one of the best renditions of the song I've heard.
It takes a special kind of group to turn a potential disaster into a stellar highlight, and this incident proved that Coldplay deserves all the accolades. I'm happy to report that after overcoming these obstacles, the band was in full force for the rest of the night – locking the audience in with hits such as Hymn For The Weekend, Yellow and My Universe.
The full set list of Coldplay's first Singapore show is as follows:
- Music Of The Spheres
- Higher Power
- Adventure Of A Lifetime
- The Scientist
- Viva La Vida
- Hymn For The Weekend
- Charlie Brown
- Human Heart
- People Of The Pride
- Infinity Sign
- Something Just Like This
- My Universe
- A Sky Full Of Stars
- Don't Panic
Despite being a longtime fan of Coldplay, I ended up learning something new about the band after this concert: The depth of their sincerity. Both in connecting with their fans and making the world a better place.
There were many instances during the concert (and tour) where this sincerity was highlighted – from the kinetic dance floor and electric bikes that powered the show to the green transport options for fans heading home .
The one that spoke the most to me was when he brought two audience members onstage in the middle of the show. Just like the mother-son pair at Coldplay's Tokyo Dome concert , these two fans had also recently lost someone close to them and requested the band to play Everglow – which Martin, of course, obliged.
However, before Martin could start singing, one of the fans onstage whipped out his phone – presumably to record the performance – leading the 46-year-old singer to stop him and impart some wisdom.
"You don't need to film this now, my brother. I'm right here. We're having a real connection," he said as the audience laughed.
Sure, it was a light-hearted incident but it underscored Coldplay's commitment to being in the moment with their fans, which I would argue has led to some of their most powerful performances.
With five more shows to go, Coldplay is poised to deliver one of Singapore's most memorable concert experiences. From its sustainability initiatives to production values, almost every aspect of the show ranked highly in my opinion, save for a few hiccups here and there.
But hey, nobody said it was easy.

Coldplay have long been one of the most prominent artists to not just speak out about the climate emergency, but to try to take action in their touring business.
Now the band have teamed up with Warner Music Group, Live Nation and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s Environmental Solutions Initiative for a sizeable study of live music’s climate impact.
The study will begin with research on the UK and US markets for a report to be finished by July 2024.
That will assess “the relationship between live music and climate change”; identify ways the industry and fans alike “can make tangible improvements to reduce emissions”; and analyse recent developments in green technology and sustainable practices.
Last June, Coldplay said that their recent ‘Music of the Spheres’ stadium tour had reduced its CO2e [carbon dioxide equivalent] emissions by 47% compared to their previous tour. The band also launched a website breaking down some of the measures they had taken to do that.
“I applaud the spirit of openness and collaboration that will allow us to identify specific challenges in areas such as live event production, freight and audience travel, and recommend solutions that can be implemented across the entire industry to address climate change,” said MIT’s Professor John E. Fernandez on the new study.

SINGAPORE: British band Coldplay’s Music Of The Spheres World Tour in Singapore that will end on Wednesday (Jan 31) has not only entertained the band’s scores of fans. It has tried to reduce its carbon footprint as well.
Through kinetic dance floors and energy-storing stationary bikes at its performance arena at the National Stadium, the band has fuelled batteries that power elements of the show.
These are just several initiatives the band has put in place to be more environmentally responsible for its tour.
In June last year, the band said that on a show-by-show comparison, the Music Of The Spheres Tour produced 47 per cent less carbon dioxide equivalent emissions than its last stadium tour.
Transport operators like ride-hailing platform Grab have also been quick to jump on the green bandwagon to offer more eco-friendly ways to get home, rolling out free buses to take passengers to Redhill, Boon Keng, Jurong East, and Toa Payoh MRT stations.
Other shuttle services selling tickets for guaranteed seats are also running their own promotions and discounts.
Such moves are creating awareness about the need to reduce the carbon footprint of large-scale entertainment events as more venue operators and event organisers in Singapore look to go green to appeal to environmentally-conscious event-goers.
ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY INITIATIVES
Among these venues is the Singapore EXPO, which is making eco-friendly changes.
The convention and exhibition venue is now home to the largest single-site solar panel installation in the country. In January alone, it generated enough energy to power 170 four-room HDB flats for a year. The venue aims to be Asia's first net zero venue running on clean energy.
There are also 20 electric vehicle charging bays across its vicinity.
Such efforts set a benchmark for the meetings, incentives, conferences, and exhibitions (MICE) industry, said Mr Ian Gan, vice-president of centre management at Constellar, which manages Singapore EXPO.
He noted that consumers today are not just aware of climate change but taking active steps in reducing their impact from day-to-day activities.
“Sustainability is now a requirement from our clients who want to do events … It is critical that our industry continues to make an effort and pursue sustainability as part of our greater initiative to continue to make Singapore the preferred MICE destination for the years to come,” he said.
The biggest challenge that faces the industry is the alignment of standards, especially in terms of measuring and reporting greenhouse gas emissions.
FIRMS NEED TO CATCH UP
Economist from CGS CIMB Securities Song Seng Wun said that while efforts are being made by sectors including the MICE industry, they are part of a transition that cannot take place overnight.
