After all these months of waiting, and hoping, and fervently checking any and all of our social media platforms, the good news has finally arrived. Legendary British rock band Coldplay are all set to perform on an Indian stage on 19th November, 2016. Now though we are still waiting on official sources to confirm the news, we are pretty sure to expect Coldplay in Bombay this winter, playing to the chords of our heart. Coldplay had hinted on wanting to tour in India earlier in the year, during the release of their latest studio album, ‘A Head Full Of Dreams.’ Scroll on as we give you our top 5 reasons to be excited for Coldplay in November:
Coldplay’s first tour in India: This is going to be Coldplay’s first tour in India. After all the rumours and the confusions that have been doing the rounds since Chris Martin played an impromptu gig at Delhi when he visited as a part of the Global Citizen delegate.
Right after Hymn For The Weekend: There is something very poetic about Coldplay coming to tour to India after shooting their music video for their track, Hymn For The Weekend. It seems like the colours of our cities coloured the minds of the legendary band members, and we cannot be thankful enough for it. Don’t you remember how crazy the fans had gotten hunting for the band during their shoot in Mumbai, because we definitely do.
They’re coming to Bombay: There was nothing quite as disappointing as being in Mumbai, or any other city in the country to be honest, and hearing of Chris Martin playing an impromptu gig in Delhi. This was further followed by rumours of Coldplay definitely coming to play in India, but choosing Delhi as the city to perform in. Thankfully, after all the debacles, it has been confirmed, well, allegedly confirmed that they are choosing Mumbai MMRDA Grounds as the venue for this mammoth event.
The weather will be perfect: Considering the fact that we are expecting Coldplay to come to Bombay right in the middle of November, which is just when the nights are cold enough to stay out in but not too cold, we can just almost guarantee the concert to be a big hit. Of course, it would be a hit even if Coldplay came down in the middle of May, because its Coldplay, but the perfect weather adds to the fantasy of the perfect Coldplay concert.
Because, Chris Martin: And well, if you’re still not excited about the band coming down, let us hit you with the biggest reason of all; Chris Martin. That’s right, people, in two short months, you may be standing a few feet away from legend himself, as he serenades the crowd with his magnetic voice. Eeeep!
