    Coldplay Perform Live on Instagram in Support of 'Every Vote Counts'

    Today Coldplay played a short live set on Instagram in support of Global Citizen’s ‘Every Vote Counts’ campaign.

    Coldplay, a band comfortable playing in front of 70,000 people in stadiums, played live to a virtual audience today on Instagram in their typical awkwardly cute ways.

    We were treated to Phil on camera, pointing his phone close to each band members face while they cheerily smile and laugh at each other. Phil also paused the band halfway through their set to untangle himself from the bundle of wires tethered to the phone!

    While troubled with a few technical issues, the band played a spectacular set live from Hansa Studios in Berlin.

    Despite the glitches, Coldplay proved their versatility as a band today by playing each song live and raw without their usual spectacles of fireworks, lasers and massive screens. Each track was performed beautifully by each band member accompanied only by their own instruments. It's rare that we ever get treated to such an incredible stripped back set from Coldplay but they have outdone themselves today!

    Everything’s Not Lost was particularly well received by fans on Twitter who haven’t heard the song played live in years.




    Today’s show was in support of Global Citizen’s latest campaign ‘Every Vote Counts’.

    During the Instagram Live, Chris pleaded with viewers to vote in the upcoming US 2020 presidential election and asked major news outlets to hold off on calling the election until every vote is counted

    Many states can’t start counting mail-in ballots until Election Day, and with more people than ever voting by mail due to the COVID-19 pandemic, it may take weeks to count them. Whether former Vice President Joe Biden or President Donald Trump wins could come down to a few states, and if news outlets call the results prematurely, it could have serious consequences, causing confusion, doubt in the democratic process, and even unrest.

    • Hard one… Arabesque vs Yellow
    • They can’t just “abandon the era” when they’re still working on it. A lot of recording and tour rehearsing has been happening last year as well as so far this year so they’re just busy with that I think. MOTS Vol ii is well on the way I think! 
    • It's been oddly quiet. Perhaps that's just part of releasing a record later in the year before the Holidays when the band is spending time with families and when the media cycle slows down. Maybe it's just the new norm when you're a legacy band -- there's lots of exciting artists to be talking about instead of Coldplay afterall.  But yeah... for an album featuring BTS and Selena Gomez, it seems like it didn't gain a lot of steam? Obviously I'm biased because it's my least favorite Coldplay record and also, if we are to trust metacritic's results, their least critically acclaimed record. The heights of this era really seem to have come from Coloratura, which took the media and critical world by storm, and of course, My Universe given how massive it is.  The question moving forward is whether they will continue with a pre-determined 3 volume plan or if they are shifting their tactics based on the responses to this album. I'm more inclined to believe they have 2 albums ready to drop and more singles to come in 2022 with more features and Max Martin will continue helping producing.
    • ¿Alguien tiene las grabaciones de este programa? si lo tienes te lo agradeceria mucho!
    • Thanks @Dany93! I won't need it right now. With covid I'm not sure what's happening in July. If I get a plane ticket locked in closer to the date I'll message you. I appreciated the help.
