IN PHOTOS: #ColdplayManila — every fan’s dream come true!


#ColdplayManila was lit, fam. Where do we even begin! Held last April 4 at the MOA Concert Grounds, the Manila leg of Coldplay’s A Head Full of Dreams tour was everything every fan dreamed it would be. From the stunning production–Confetti! Giant balloons! Fireworks! Laserlights!–to the epic performances by the band, the show definitely did not disappoint.

Formed in 1996, lead vocalist and keyboardist, Chris Martin, with lead guitarist Jonny Buckland, bassist Guy Berryman, and drummer and backing vocalist, Will Champion, treated their Filipino fans to one rockin’ night as they perform their greatest and well-loved hits: Yellow, Fix You, The Scientist, Paradise, Magic, Viva La Vida, A Sky Full of Stars, Up&Up, Hymn for the Weekend, and Don’t Panic to name a few.

If you missed the show, don’t worry–we got you covered. Here are some of the highlights of the concert for all you #TeamBahay peeps:

Nothing beats the classics like the song “Yellow”:
