Coldplay in Sydney – 50th Max Sessions – Watch now!
Coldplay in Sydney – 50th Max Sessions performance.
The band performed a wonderful show for the hundreds of delighted Coldplay fans in Sydney, Australia, on June 18th. The intimate gig which was positioned in between Coldplay’s two live shows in Toyko and Syndey for the Ghost Stories ‘mini tour’, was aired on Foxtel, an Australian TV channel, on Saturday just gone. Many Coldplayers have been looking for the show since then, with the full show not appearing on the net until today! Many thanks to Jonny and the cake for the video link on the ever growing Coldplay multimedia forum. Click on the link for the download of the Max sessions show!
The start of the broadcast brings back memories from Coldplay’s 2003 appearence which was infact, the first ever Max sessions show. They have came a long way since then and have returned on their 50th show. Remarkable!

Recap – from June 2014
On June 18th in Sydney, Australia, Coldplay played an exclusive live show at The Star Event Centre for Foxtel’s MAX channel 50th anniversary event. There was a selection of lucky fans who had to the privledge of being at the show, in the company of the many camera men who were filming the show which we know will be aired in August.
The band played a great show, with a slightly re-arranged setlist, with the likes of Til Kingdom Come and The Scientist making a comeback in the encore. Every Teardrop is a Waterfall ended the set, just like it did during the whole of the Mylo Xyloto tour! View the setlist in full below.

Lasers filled the packed room as the band made their entrance signalling the beginning of an experience few in attendance would forget anytime soon.
Coldplay opened with the low key ‘Always On My Mind’ to entice the crowd before knocking out two big songs,’Charlie Brown’ and ‘Paradise’. Martin thanked the crowd for putting up with the TV cameras and were excited to play Australia again, for the first time in years.
