Coldplay To Take Requests On New Tour


Coldplay have recently stated that they will be taking requests from fans on their new tour. They said that they’ll be taking fans’ song requests every night of their 2016 A Head Full Of Dreams tour. 

They recently released their seventh album A Head Full of Dreams earlier this month on December 4th. it was their highest first-week album sales since their album Viva La Vida in 2008.

In a recent interview with The Sun, Coldplay frontman Chris Martin said “What we will do on this tour is almost like a request segment. We’d ask people to give us a reason why they want us to play that song so there is a purpose behind why we play it.”

Martin went into more detail saying “I think we want to make it like a passport photobooth, so you go in and say, ‘I am Derek, I would like you to play ‘The Hardest Part’…’ So for example, if we are going to play a song like ‘Spies’ off ‘Parachutes’, it will be lovely to play it and say, ‘This is for Helen from Bolton as this reminds her of her dad.’ That is a bad example and not a real one.”
