This past weekend was one of anticipation and excitement as fans came out to see the popular English rock band Coldplay perform at Glastonbury, England’s renowned music festival. The presence of this Grammy award winning band made this spectacular event even more amazing, it was their 1st headlined Glastonbury appearance since 2005.
The festive city was filled with bright lights and a screaming crowd as the band got down and performed a number of the fans favorite hits on the legendary pyramid stage. Keeping that excitement alive, they surprised fans with not only one or two news songs, but a total of four unreleased tracks. Right before giving fans a taste of their upcoming album, lead singer Chris Martin warned the crowd “Please forgive us for playing new songs, one day they’ll be your favourites, but now it’s OK to be thinking, ‘What the fuck?’”
And judging by their reaction, the fans loved each one. The new tracks include: ‘Hurts Like Heaven’, ‘Major Minus’, ‘Us Against The World’, and ‘Charlie Brown.’ This performance marked the very first time these songs were played live in the UK. It’s been quite some time since their last album Viva La Vida which sold nearly seven million copies back in 2008, but after three years they’re back to give fans more great music.
