For some reason, Coldplay are a band that I have had a tendency to underappreciate in the past. Despite loving so many of their songs, I couldn’t tell you of a time when I reached for an album to listen in full. Maybe I never had. I suppose what I’m saying is that they are a band I’ve massively overlooked for as long as I can remember.
But when a friend asked if I would be interested in taking her spare ticket, I was immediately tempted. It was an expensive ticket - probably more than I’ve ever paid for a concert - but when I really thought about their music and the fact that this was supposedly their last tour, it was an opportunity I couldn’t refuse.
