    Coldplay at the iHeartRadio festival - Viva Las Vegas (Review)

    iHeartRadio festival - Coldplay


    Coldplay were back in Vegas, for the first time since 2011, where they last performed at the 2011 iHeartRadio festival. Coldplay were on the center stage again for a brief but exhilarating show after their wonderful show in Los Angeles the other night.


    Firstly, i'm sure he needs no introductions around here but he's gonna do one anyway!




    Coldplay's setlist at the star studded festival was condensed, which was inline with the pop based festival in which artists would only play for 4 or 5 songs. The guys wasted no time with a frantic start during 'Clocks', pleased the crowd which was baying for their hits, as Coldplay responded with 'Viva La Vida' and 'Paradise'. Coldplay sneaked in 'Ink' which was the surprise of the night, in favour of the 3rd single 'True Love'. Could this be a hint of 'Ink' being the band's fourth single from 'Ghost Stories'? Or it could just be to follow in the uplifting mood of the concert. The clues of 'True Love' being preferred during the iHeartRadio album release party in May suggest something like this may have some significance on the band's direction with the album singles. The short and sweet setlist can be seen below. The show was finished in style with the biggest hit from 'Ghost Stories', 'A Sky Full Of Stars' which showered many screaming and dancing fans in confetti!

    Remember Will's speech during the Live 2012 documentary about his polarizing experience in a Las Vegas hotel room? 3 years later, his touring schedule is much more relaxed than the hectic Mylo Xylotour as he and Chris chatted to the charismatic host, Elvis Duran, who has been a regular interviewer of Chris and Coldplay during this whole era.
