    Coldplay have a history of having an ambient track that plays before the concert opener kicks in. Here you can discuss about those songs.

    --------------------------------------------------------------

    * Parachutes Tour - Man With a Harmonica by Ennio Morricone (from Once Upon A Time In The West).

    * AROBTTH Tour - Liquid ambience (thanks for reminding me @I ran away :)).

    * Twisted Logic Tour - Square One synths + countdown background.

    * VLVODAAHF Tour - The Blue Danube by Johann Strauss.

    * MX Tour - 99 Problems by Jay-Z + Back To The Future Theme Song.

    * GS Tour - An Ending by Brian Eno.

    * AHFOD Tour - O Mio Babbino Caro by Miriam Gauci + The Great Dictator speech by Charles Chaplin.

    --------------------------------------------------------------

    **Since the Twisted Logic Tour, the band has also been playing a handful of tracks (inc. White Diamond by Hatchback) before any acts perform.**

    --------------------------------------------------------------

    PS: my favourites are The Blue Danube from the Viva Tour and the BTTF Theme Song from the MX Tour.

    Have fun! ;)

    My absolute favorite is the Liquid Ambience of the AROBTTH Tour. It is so beautiful and at the same time heavy that I think it should have been recorded and released as an extra track !

    In Parachutes they had that harmonica one.

    Not sure for Twisted Logic. My favourite is...

    The Liquid Ambience or BTTF:D

    It could have been on the album before Politik
    Do you have a link for a video of the Parachutes one? I can't find anything resembling an harmonica!

    Yeah, now I remember it. It's the theme of "Once Upon A Time In The West", in case you wanna adjust it in your original post @diogo_sg ! :)

    I think Twisted Logic was the Square One synth and the countdown.

    For me that is the one from the only concert I've been to: the BTTF theme, which was immediately followed by Mylo Xyloto.

    As I mentioned in the other thread, the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra playing 'The Blue Danube' brought me back to Viva times today. Funnily enough, when they finished it, my mind still went immediately to the LiT beginning. I listened to the tour bootlegs too much, I think. :D

    I love a good intro song and how it can be something of a theme setter as well as almost a kind of Pavlovian trigger. This year I really, really loved U2's 'People Have The Power' intro and how it got the crowd going. I can still feel the excitement whenever I hear it.

    Can't wait to see what Coldplay will choose for the AHFOD tour!

    Your post on the Random Coldplay Thoughts thread was the one that made think of creating this thread - thank you for that ;)
    Whatever Coldplay use as an intro for this era, I'm sure it'll be epic - they said so in an interview (that their intros will be amazing). So excited! :D

    I'm not familiar with the intros, so thanks for the thread @diogo_sd
    And thanks for this video. It reminds me how much I love the Parachutes concerts because the first song they played was Spies. It wasn't their opening track in the album, but it was a great choice to start the show with the effects Jonny does in this song.
