Published November 19, 2023

British rock sensation Coldplay mesmerized their Perth fans with an electrifying concert this past Saturday night. The performance was a feast for the senses, featuring dazzling fireworks, glowing LED wristbands, giant inflatable planets, whimsical alien suits, and a setlist filled with crowd-pleasers.

A Night to Remember

The anticipation was palpable as the band took to the stage at Optus Stadium, launching into the dynamic sounds of their hit single Higher Power. The atmosphere was electric, with more than 60,000 audience members revelling in the experience.

Coldplay's charismatic frontman Chris Martin had the audience in raptures, leading singalongs to popular anthems like Adventure of a Lifetime, Paradise, and the emotive The Scientist. He expressed heartfelt gratitude towards the fans, especially those who journeyed from afar for this unique Perth-only concert.

A Setlist Spanning Decades

The band expertly navigated their diverse discography, intertwining their early hits with recent chart-toppers. They proved that their music transcends generations, with fans young and old dancing to songs such as Viva la Vida, Hymn for the Weekend, and Charlie Brown.

During a poignant moment, Martin performed Everglow with Jasmine, a young fan and cancer survivor. The stadium soaked in a golden wash of light as the band played the much-loved song Yellow, showcasing their enduring appeal.

An Otherworldly Finale

Act three of the concert witnessed Coldplay embracing a spacey theme with alien headgear and a performance of Infinity Sign. Martin's call for an unplugged moment, with phones away, during the performance of A Sky Full of Stars set up a grand fireworks finale.

They concluded the concert with an intimate performance of Sparks, followed by the powerful ballad Fix You, and ended on a high note with Biutyful, leaving fans applauding enthusiastically.

In a special gesture to Perth, Martin even debuted an original song dedicated to what he called the city's 'Emerald City', highlighting local influences and claiming that missing out on Western Australia would have been a great misstep.

The concert not only delighted the fans but also made a significant economic impact, attracting over 40,000 visitors from outside the state and boosting the local economy. After a stunning show, Coldplay is set to continue their world tour, leaving Perth with unforgettable memories.
