Since forming the band in 1996, Coldplay, originally called Pectoralz and later Starfish, has enjoyed enormous success. One of the most successful UK groups of all time, Coldplay has sold over 100 million records. And the Candlelight series invites all Coldplayers to experience the band’s chart-topping hits under a new light at Buckley Center Auditorium. Unwind inside a versatile venue bathed in the glow of countless candles and experience a one-of-a-kind Candlelight tribute to Coldplay.
Coldplay is known for its lead vocalist Chris Martin and the distinctive sound created by Gerry Berryman, Phil Harvey, Johnny Buckland, and Will Champion. Fans respond to the band’s ever-changing sound and its willingness to experiment. From the alternative and indie rock songs on Parachutes to the synth-pop hits on Music of the Spheres, Coldplay continues to redefine the rock genre.
