let's hope they play a cool Coldplay only version :p
As long as those 2 from CS are not on stage I guess I can live with it. But then they have to cut out the Paradise Remix. 1 EDM song is enough (ASFOS not counted).
Glad they aren't returning to my country during this tour then lol
Thanks neighbour. [emoji12]

Are we sure Jason knows shit though? I mean they could be preparing a production for it without having decided on the setlist. tbh I'm hoping Will vetoes it. It's a big #hit though so objectively speaking it would make sense to play it but ehhhh

In any case I hope it won't replace Birds or a different good song, if that happens I'm gonna be mad :whip:

Jason kind of was polling on Twitter how fans were thinking of the song earlier.
He got more negative answers than positive. [emoji4]

yeah, as much as i love the Paradise remix, i'd actually much rather have them play SJLT because then we get another song with Chris actually singing instead of only jumping around :p

Isn't the jumping around/jumping into crowds versus singing ratio in SJLT not >70% though ? :p
Well he is welcome to jump into the crowd next to me [emoji12]

Oh God, next to you of all people, the "biggest Chris fan" ! And then probably you'll find a way to smuggle him out of the stadium and poor Chris was never seen again :p

Actually, it would be dangerous for the audience if Chris jumped into the crowd, and I don't think he is gonna do it. This is not a small crowd like during those Awards shows, in a stadium, this might cause a stampede with awful consequences, so I doubt it.

I think birds is not a stadium song..I'll be glad if they replaced it with songs like politic or violent hill or even spies.

oh they can replace whatever the hell they want with Politik

But I wouldn't say Birds isn't a stadium song, it worked great on the previous legs of the tour.

Wow... I seriously can't believe the amount of love this song is getting. I really like this song but I expected way, WAY more hate for it. I'm surprised. Pleasently surprised.
I'm probably the only person who generally likes The Chainsmokers on here outside of the sexist comments and things like that. This is a great song and even for the people not liking it we shouldn't be too worried, keep in mind this is The Chainsmokers ft. Coldplay not the other way around. If it was the other way around, I could see where you're coming from. The haters should still have hope for the EP. Then again, who's to say Coldplay won't do something with The Chainsmokers the other way around....




I literally only listened to it twice and it's been playing in my head nonstop, even though I listened to about 15 songs afterwards. As per usual with The Chainsmokers, catchy and extremely memorable at least for me.




This song is actually receiving much more positive comments then I had expected. Of course there are haters but still. You're one of the last people I would have expected to be defending this. I really like this song too and I actually like most of what I've heard from The Chainsmokers. I'll never defend them artistically for now but they're fun to listen to for me. I can see why you wouldn't like them though. But this to be honest is a great song.
About Nickelback I honestly think they're criminally underrated but it is funny that a lot of people consider their new song far better than that Linkin Park fail though.




Won't be on the EP, not sure about the tour
FAM IT FULLY FUCKING BANGS

If it were to replace something on the set list, Birds would make sense. Huge bummer. I absolutely loved Birds when I saw them on tour, it was one of the few times the band was all together each playing an instrument and Chris gave a great performance.

Maybe the Paradise remix could get replaced? But again, live that remix was some of the funnest 2 minutes of my life because it was simply an all out rave with screeching guitars. Unlike SJLT it has real speed and ferocity to it that is super fun to dance to.

The ultimate test for Coldplay is the "silhouette" test, or how many people are deciding to leave in the middle of a song? I wonder if that is what happened with Army of One? We also know they'll be performing Fun with Tove Lo, and I expect the same to happen. As long as fans can unite around not wanting to hear SJLT, then maybe they'll stop playing it.

Now we know they replaced Amazing Day which in my opinion wasn't good. They should replace Heroes. I like their version but it's not a Coldplay song!

I agree that it was a bad idea to scratch Amazing Day off the setlist and put SJLT instead. I think it was a better idea to replace Paradise (Remix) with SJLT.

But I am here to say that I really liked the version of SJLT that they played in Singapore yesterday (I can't find their last performance of SJLT of today)
I really prefer this more rockier SJLT, I like it so much more than the original ! And did you know that Jonny also changed his guitar riffs at some point, which sounds more like his old style, in my opinion ! He did that around 2:36---2:58. Overall, it sounds so amazing.
