Coldplay wasted energy and emotion in their first concert in Barcelona

Coldplay’s Music Spheres Tour isn’t a concert, it’s an amusement park with music, and even the most credible admit that it’s fun.

Determining what Coldplay are doing at the Music Spheres tour is like a park concert. Perhaps the most appropriate concept to explain is “immersive experience”, that formula that makes the state receive stimuli through the five senses and forget what is happening elsewhere. You don’t just enjoy the show, you ‘live’ it. In this case, there is no need for virtual reality glasses: just light xylobandes bracelets, huge fish that bounce off raised hands on the track, local visual effects and anthems sung by thousands of people at the same time. . There will be 6,000 Britons in Barcelona every four nights, where they sold out in the blink of an eye.

It’s not a recital, it’s an amusement park with music and even more unexpected things to admit it’s fun. The band proposed this price to have as little impact on the environment as possible. Specifically, the first half of the Head of Dreams Tour (2016-1017). Some of the measures they put into practice are the use of low-consumption led screens or reducing air travel. But they have also done other things that include the state and turn their idea into a game of limitation. Part of the area is in motion and the attendees recharge the mobile battery that powers the stage with their dancing or power pedaling. It’s a sustainable party and I’m happy to go to all the concerts.

After the games by the opening acts Cerva and Chvrches and almost half an hour after the announced time, the starry journey of Music For The Spheres began. He opened the popular Flying Theme, which John Williams composed for ET as the soundtrack to the stage, why this reference to Steven Spielberg’s film? Perhaps because one of the mottos of the tour and the self-titled album is “Everybody’s Stranger Somewhere.” It’s those kinds of phrases that lie somewhere between an affirmation of self-help and a soft plea that expose both the falling love and the rejection of millions of people. But his songs can make everyone murmur.

The singer of Coldplay, Chris Martin, presented a concert this Wednesday at the Olympic Stadium in Barcelona. martha perez

Coldplay’s performance began with a higher power. Not even five minutes had passed and the stadium was already a superlative karaka room. “Oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh” and the first explosion of confetti (recyclable confetti). The public generated only electricity on the footbridge as if to propel it into space: some, perhaps the most devoted, had arrived at the venue at seven in the morning to find a place, but in Advent their forces were compensated. Red, white, green and blue fireflies pushed the fish with raised hands.

The sold-out stage of the epic is powerful, and Martin is an expert showman, so he directed the emotions as he wished. In heavy broken Spanish, he asked the audience to chant the unmistakable “O-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh” heard several times throughout the night along with “Ole, ole, ole!” Deaf people will also be able to enjoy the Spanish and Catalan language sign, in addition to the punch bags to make their experience even more immersive (it’s the only site on the tour where they offer this service).

At 10:00 am the skin is already in goosebumps with the first chords of one of the already total classics, Scientista, included in his 2002 album Russian Blood to the Head, although the version has not yet been released. for all radiohead listeners. Before we got up from the piano, Chris Martin gave other words to the audience: “Good evening, good night, we’re playing the best show of your life” and a dedication to Tina Turner, who died a few hours before the concert. .

The celebration that went along with Viva la vida was almost bigger than the expectations and expectations couldn’t have been higher at that point. The climax of the feeling was reached when a singer named Sonia took the stage to dedicate O to the sick mother. But, without a doubt, the public at last yielded to Flavius ​​with undoubted solemnity. They listened to the most on Spotify (1,645,000,336 listeners), which has in the cradle of everyone the repertoire of his nostalgic heart.

The singer interpreted the lyrics in the sign language of Infinity Sign, which followed the song they did with the South Korean group BTS and which was scorned by specialized critics but adored by the public. Not a single song disappointed those who were there and at times Chris Martin’s attitude was slightly closer to that of a spinning master like a starry sky.

In the encore, several members of the Gipsy Kings took the stage to perform the song Rolling on the River, in adoration of Tina Turner with a flamenco air, and some pieces from the rum group as a familiar version. Caballo viejo also wrote Bamboleo in addition to other classics such as Volare. To end at the top, two other songs destroy the stadium: Fix yourself and Biutyful with pyrotechnics, balloons, playful and confetti for the last part in the height of the epic group that gave everything that is expected.
