Coldplay announce gig at London’s Natural History Museum
Coldplay have announced their plans to play a special one-off show at London’s iconic Natural History Museum.
The performance, which will take place on November 25th, comes in promotion of the band’s new double album Everyday Life. The concert coincides with the second part of the double LB which will be officially released on November 22nd.
The performance at the Natural History Museum is the band’s only announced show in London and marks their first gig in the city since their last appearance in 2016.
Tickets are in high demand for the unique show and priority has been given to fans who pre-order their new album through the band’s official website. All proceeds from the show will be donated to ClientEarth, an environmental charity who recently teamed up with the band.
Coldplay frontman Chris Martin described the new album as “our reaction to the perceived negativity that’s everywhere,” in an interview with BBC Radio 1’s Annie Mac, adding: “And there is a lot of trouble, but there’s also so much positivity and so much great life happening. So in a way, it’s just trying to make sense of things, saying what we feel and what we see.”
“Some of it’s very personal, about real things in my life, and some of it’s about things that I see or we see, and some of it’s about trying to empathise about what other people are going through,” Martin said of the album’s inspiration.
“It seems to me that one of things that might help people have a better time is to put themselves in other people’s shoes, whether that’s these kids who have to leave Syria, or who grew up in Baltimore, or whatever it might be. Rather than judging from afar, maybe to think ‘I wonder what it’s like to be there.’”
