No matter who may be the top selling act this year, alternative rock band Coldplay puts on the best show. On Sunday, Nov. 16. the band played at a sold-out Ford Stadium in Oklahoma City. Tonight they play in Dallas at the American Airlines Center.
Coldplay's concert bombards the senses with visual effects, incredible music and even massive amounts of confetti that pour from the ceiling. More importantly, the band is entertaining, especially when front man Chris Martin uses his humility for comedic purposes. "Thanks for being here," Martin said after the first few songs. "We're a band called Coldplay. And I have to say that, as a band, we're thoroughly impressed for a Sunday night in Oklahoma,"
The tour revolves around the group's album, "Viva la Vida or Death and All His Friends," released this past summer. The concert opened with the mostly instrumental "Life in Technicolor," a song perfectly suited for opening a show because it begins in a mellow state but finishes with energy.
