I’ve been obsessed with one British band for almost the last 20 years. Coldplay. That’s because not only are their songs always fantastic but they are one of the best bands to see live. In concert, they’re always ‘spot on’ when it comes to performing, they play so many hit songs, simply because they’ve had so many, and they have great stage presence.
Which is exactly what happened when Coldplay performed at the iHeartRadio Music Festival 2014 last night. Five of their biggest hits, a great performance, and, of course, the lovely Chris Martin filling the stage with his energy. God, I just love watching him. He inhabits the entire stage and the energy he gives off? Just beautiful.
As usual, they also played some of their best songs — “Clocks,” “Viva La Vida,” “Paradise,” “Ink,” and “Sky Full of Stars – which, if you missed it, you can watch in the video below. And, as I always say, loud, with headphones, and your eyes closed.
As for my favorite? ‘Viva La Vida’. It just always is.
