Concert – Coldplay: Music and ecology that go hand in hand

Beyond their music, the lyrics of their songs and the sensory experience of enjoying the live concert “Music of The Spheres”, by the British band Coldplay, they have other intentions.

In this first meeting with their Dominican public, this Tuesday night at the Félix Sánchez Olympic Stadium, Chris Martin, Jon Buckland, Guy Berryman and Will Champion, members of the group, seek to make this a better world and achieve a change of attitude in his followers, in terms of caring for the environment.

This is why, prior to the musical display and the impressive visual effects that were dispensed during little more than two hours of concert, the audience was able to watch a short film that tries to raise awareness about the use of plastic and the cleaning of the seas. For this reason, it was not surprising that they held a reforestation day in the Nigua Ecological Park, in San Cristóbal, prior to their presentation, which began with the main song of the 1982 film “ET”.

The band, which supports the Amnesty International movement, is following a path that brings them closer to other colleagues from the world of rock who have made this type of contribution in the past, for example, Sting, in defense of the Amazon, or The Beatles, a great influence on Coldplay, in their call for peace. Some ideas, present above all in the solo discography of George Harrison and John Lennon.

This line of thought coincides with the visual aesthetic used by Coldplay, colorful, inclusive, and that gives the band an image that distances it from the darkness of other valid rock and roll proposals. “Music of The Spheres” was a sensory show that the London group always intended to be enjoyed to the fullest.

That is why one of the most special moments, of so many memorable moments of the concert, was when Chris Martin asked those present to stop using cell phones, at least in the song they were performing and not to record it and what They just enjoyed the moment, something that the entire audience did.
