Like returning home from a distant journey, Coldplay transported the Optus Stadium crowd (18 November) through a performance that was nothing short of a spectacular cosmic odyssey, guiding us back to earth in four acts, past the Planets, Moons, Stars, and tenderly back Home to Western Australia.

Coldplay brings empathy — and Selena Gomez — to the band's 2023 North American tour finale

In 2023, a Coldplay concert opens like a triumphant finale — LED wristbands flashing, confetti canons on overdrive, a singalong of 68,000 voices repeating “You’ve got a higher power,” to match frontman Chris Martin’s energy.

If you were a fan of Coldplay in 2001, you might have caught them on their first tour when they played the Showbox in downtown Seattle. MTV, back when it still cared about music, reviewed the show and described lead singer Chris Martin as nervous and wondered if American audiences would embrace the British band.
