On Sunday evening, my dad and I went to Wembley Stadium to see Coldplay's final show (of 4) there. And they were brilliant.
I expected it to be amazing, but they went above and beyond, putting on one of the best shows I have ever seen. I think the whole production was phenomenal, with the lights adding something very special to the night, especially in all the moments everyone's wristbands were lit up; we were all there celebrating a band we loved, and the sense of togetherness was wonderful.
They played a two hour set, filled with their hits and an extra couple of songs from their most recent album, A Head Full of Dreams.
I loved every song, but some highlights included The Scientist, Everglow, and Fix You, which hit you even more in the feels when you heard everyone singing along passionately. Adventure of a Lifetime, Hymn For the Weekend, Viva La Vida, and Every Teardrop is a Waterfall were the party songs, with so much energy running through the stadium, even despite the rain. A Sky Full of Stars was a rather beautiful moment as well, with the most beautiful atmosphere about it.
Honestly, one of the best live bands ever. I could not recommend going to a gig enough. You will have the time of your life.
Until next time.
