It all started in 1996 when two guys from England wanted to start a band. Over the next two years, along with adding bandmates, the name changed from Pectoralz to Starfish to finally, Coldplay.
Coldplay is one of the most world-renowned, successful bands of its time. With a reach of millions of listeners in countries all over the world, this group made up of four Englishmen brings the entertainment and freedom of music to every arena. From “Sparks” to “Clocks” to “Viva La Vida”, Coldplay is one of the hottest musical groups ever to perform.
But this group is not only musically talented, they also perform at numerous charity benefits and concerts and bring attention to important causes all over the world. According to this charitable celebrity website, Coldplay has supported over 25 charities over the years.
Let’s face it, these guys would have certainly been voted the “Best All-Around” superlative in high school. Here are just a few fun facts about one of our favorite bands:
•Chris Martin and Johnny Buckland were college buddies at University College London.
•Will Champion had no previous experience as a drummer before joining Coldplay.
•Parachutes, their first album, was recorded in four different studios.
•Paradise is Coldplay’s best-selling single, selling over 410,000 copies.
So, the next time you’re in a mood to listen to some good, chill music, turn on Coldplay. Not only will it not disappoint, but you will find yourself experiencing the musical genius of one of the best pop/rock groups of the decade.
Coldplay A Head Full Of Dreams Tour
In December of 2014 Chris Martin and the boys were the most streamed band in the world according to spotify. Martin also announced they were in the middle of making their seventh album “A Head Full Of Dreams” which he also spoke about it being their last album. This could mean Coldplay A Head Full Of Dreams Tour their last tour. Their “Viva La Vida” Tour had 185 dates and “Mylo Xyloto” Tour reached 91 dates. Rumor has it that Coldplay A Head Full Of Dreams Tour would also support some of “Ghost Stories” as well. With no exact dates of the release of tour dates yet look for the Coldplay A Head Full Of Dreams Tour to happen late 2015 through 2016. The Coldplay A Head Full Of Dreams concert tour will could have multiple dates in many of the venues especially if its their last album and tour as Coldplay!
The Coldplay A Head Full Of Dreams Tour is will most likely have stops at Madison Square Garden, TD Garden in Boston as well as the Oracle Arena in Oakland. The Coldplay Los Angeles concerts will either be at The Forum or Staples Center.
If you have never seen Coldplay in concert then I suggest you add it to your bucketlist and when the next and maybe last Coldplay concert tour happens see them live! They put on an amazing concert! Truly Amazing!
One of the most famous arenas across the globe only deserves the best.
