It's been four long years since the Grammy Award-winning alternative rock band Coldplay played here, and their A Headful of Dreams tour won’t disappoint. This is the seventh tour for the band with front man Chris Martin and marks their return to a large-scale pyrotechnics and laser light show that will be sure to ignite AT&T Stadium. With hits like “Viva la Vida,” “Hymn for the Weekend” and “Up & Up,” Coldplay’s latest album has so far reached number two on the U.S. Billboard charts. Formed in 1998, Coldplay features the British quartet of singer Chris Martin, guitarist Jonny Buckland, bassist Guy Berryman and drummer Will Champion. While they’re known for their unique sound and energetic concerts, the band has also won 62 awards from 209 nominations over the past 18 years for songs like “Yellow,” from their debut album, Parachutes (2000), and “Viva la Vida,” from their fourth studio album, “Viva la Vida or Death and All His Friends” (2008).
And who could forget their live performance headlining the halftime show at Super Bowl 50, along with Beyoncé and Bruno Mars? The performance was considered the third-most-watched show of all time in the United States, with viewership of 115.5 million. Don’t miss this fantastic opportunity to see one of the best bands of this generation in the penultimate show of their worldwide tour! Those who get tickets are no doubt in for the “Adventure of a Lifetime.” And, of course, a rockin’ good show.
