Coldplay heated up Buffalo this on Monday, August 1 as they brought their show to the First Niagara Center. NYS Music was there to capture a few shots of the show for readers. Usually the bells and whistles are saved for the close of the show, but these guys brought the big guns out right out of the gate with some of their best hits, canisters blasting confetti, and showering laser lights through the packed to capacity venue.
Touring for their recent album release, A Head Full of Dreams, Coldplay is half way through the tour that spans America and then heads over to Australia for the month of December. Check to see if they’ll be coming to a city near you soon. This kaleidoscope band delivers one colorful high energy show.
