Coldplay fans can watch the Los Angeles leg of the band's A Head Full of Dreams concert this Sunday, August 21 (Manila time).



When Coldplay kicked off its A Head Full of Dreams tour in the United States, it offered a spectacular mix of technology and colorful elements.

It was even described as a "larger-than-life show that makes the crowd part of the visual landscape" by Billboard.

Concertgoers received LED wristbands that pulsated and changed colors as it synchronized with the music of the British alternative rock band. The wristband lights turned yellow when the band played its massive hit “Yellow.”

The said article went on to describe the July 16 concert in New Jersey as an event filled with vibrant lights, balloons, and confetti.

Frontman Chris Martin even held up an American flag and joked about moving to the United States.

He jokingly told the crowd, “We’ll probably be refugees here at some point.”

He was referring to Brexit, an abbreviation for "British exit" since the United Kingdom opted to leave the European Union.

It will be recalled that last June, British citizens voted to exit the European Union.

Pinoy fans have been eagerly anticipating the arrival of Coldplay--composed of vocalist Chris Martin, guitarist Jonny Buckland, bassist Guy Berryman and drummer Will Champion. Sources have confirmed that the British alternative rock band will be performing in the Philippines next year.
