COLDPLAY + MARINA & THE DIAMONDS // LONDON
Yoki Attitudes suggests: Cold Play & Marina & the Diamonds live at Emirates Stadium in London. Friday, 1st June 2012 Tickets prices vary
Named the world's top selling act of 2008 at the World Music Awards in Monte Carlo, the world's best selling music artists, the iconic, uber-cool, alternative rock band, Coldplay need little introduction.
With mega-star front man, Chris Martin and his Hollywood film start wife, Gwyneth Paltrow, the group is assured of an A-lister welcome wherever they go. Guy Berryman, bass guitar and backing vocals; Jonny Buckland, guitars and backing vocals; and Will Champion, drums, percussion and backing vocals, complete the celebrity line up.
One of world's best selling music artists; Coldplay has sold over 55 million records worldwide. To have kept up this level of success over such a long period of time, is testament to the apparent down-to-earth nature of Chris Martin, he remains as modest and as likeable as ever, with his feet planted firmly on the ground. For the front man of the world's biggest band, that's quite some feat. Even the rapturous response to Coldplay ticket sales, for example Coldplay Emirates tickets (one of three sets of Coldplay London tickets on sale for the three London dates this year) never, ever seems to faze him.
Describing their music as melodic and romantic, Chris Martin is never afraid to be in touch with his feminine side. This accounts for the huge appeal of the group whose songs and lyrics are mesmerising, both haunting and beautiful, appealing to all cultures, ages and temperaments.
This most famous of alternative rock bands is always surprisingly fresh, never clichéd and certainly never fall into the trap of sounding like a typically British band, they are naturally a global band. Support: Marina and the Diamonds.
