Video of the Moment #1558: Coldplay

By on Wednesday, 25th June 2014 at 6:00 pm

Come now, admit it. You’d be thrilled if your favourite band showed up entirely unannounced to film a music video in your hometown, yeah?

This is exactly what happened to unsuspecting fans when stadium rock behemoths Coldplay made the fateful decision to use the bohemian Sydney, Australia neighbourhood of Newtown as the backdrop for their video ‘A Sky Full of Stars’. Further, even if you don’t rate the band, just watching Chris Martin walking around town like he’s a one-man band busker is pretty funny. But I’m mostly posting this because I’m selfish and I miss my friends in Sydney terribly, and I spent a lovely day visiting friends in Newtown on my trip there 2 years ago. Watch the video below.

All previous posts on TGTF on Coldplay can be accessed here, including a comprehensive band retrospective our Martin wrote last month on the occasion of the release of their latest album ‘Ghost Stories’.
