Come Experience the Music of Coldplay

The simple line “and it was all yellow” is enough for true fans to know exactly what band we are talking about.  The hit song “Yellow” was released in 2000 by the British alternative band known as Coldplay.  Coldplay was formed in 1996 and key members include singer Chris Martin, guitarist Jonny Buckland, bassist Guy Berryman, and drummer Will Champion.  Their musical style has been referred to as “blue romantic” or “melodic pop”.

So far, the band’s albums have included the beloved Parachutes (featuring the singles “Yellow”, “Trouble”, and “Shiver”), A Rush of Blood to the Head (released in 2002, with popular singles “Clocks”, “The Scientist” and “In My Place”), X&Y (in 2005, which had a number of hits including “Talk”, “Fix You”, and “Speed of Sound”), and Viva la Vida or Death and All His Friends (released in 2008 with hits “Viva la Vida” and “Strawberry Swing”).

The band’s latest album was released October 24, 2011 and is titled Mylo Xyloto.  Already it has received three Grammy nominations for the singles “Paradise and “Every Teardrop is a Waterfall”.  Besides great music and talent the band is also known for being active supporters for many major causes.

In between writing their next big hit and touring the world, the band finds the time to support Amnesty International, the “Make Trade Fair” campaign, “Make Poverty History” campaign, as well as playing for charity at concerts such as Band Aid 20, Live 8, Sound Relief, and Teenage Cancer Trust.  They have also teamed up with famous band member and activist Paul McCartney in the food campaign “Meat Free Monday”, which is trying to encourage people to help slow down the climate change.  They have also had their share of controversy because of strong political opinions, most recently with their opinions on the “Freedom for Palestine” music video.

From their charity work to fantastic music, there is plenty to love about the band Coldplay.  Listening to the newest album is great, but nothing beats hearing them performed live and in person!  Coldplay is on tour again and may be making it to your hometown.

Come hear the band that has been nominated for over 20 Grammy Awards live!
