My first ever awesome Coldplay concert: Music of The Spheres!

At long last, I had the exhilarating experience of attending my first Coldplay concert! My friends, who attended their concert in Europe performances, had raved about the electrifying atmosphere and insisted that if I ever had the opportunity to attend one of their concerts, I should seize it without hesitation. Now, having been immersed in the spectacle myself, I wholeheartedly concur. It was a sensory feast that surpassed all expectations, living up to their glowing reviews and then some!

Securing tickets was akin to diving headfirst into a Hunger Games arena. The competition was fierce, as if every music enthusiast in the region had turned into a hunter on the prowl. With all six nights selling out faster than lightning, it truly morphed into a thrilling battle royale. But against all odds, yours truly emerged victorious, clutching the coveted tickets!

If you ever head down to the National Stadium in Singapore, here are some handy tips!

Firstly, it’s crucial to adhere to the Singapore Sports Hub admission policy for a seamless entry into the National Stadium. For swift security checks, consider going bag-free. There’s even a dedicated entrance for those without bags, which can save you some time.

Other handy tips:
– Admission is granted only with a full ticket presented (printed or electronic tickets).
– Ensure e-tickets are ready and your mobile screens brightened for easy scanning by ushers.
– Outside food and beverages are not permitted within the venue.
– Personal water bottles must be emptied before entering.
– Bags exceeding dimensions of 35cm x 20cm x 30cm are not allowed.
– Noise makers, such as air horns and whistles, are strictly prohibited.
– Professional photography, videography, and social media live streaming are not allowed.
– Strictly no use of cameras, video cameras, GoPros, iPads, tablets, selfie sticks, tripods, and monopods.

Coldplay Concert: The Music of the Spheres World Tour – The experience

The National Stadium was buzzing when I arrived around 8-ish. Unlike previous concerts I’ve attended here, I was more prepared this time. I skipped bringing a bag, allowing me to breeze through the no-bag security scanning. At the entrance, they handed out plant-based, reusable LED wristbands and souvenir pins. These wristbands, collected back at the end of the show, had an impressive average return rate of about 86%.

I reckon I missed the first opening act, but I managed to catch Jasmine Sokko. Unfamiliar with her, I quickly (or rather slowly, given the stadium’s awful line!) Googled her. Turns out, she’s a renowned Singaporean singer-songwriter and electronic music producer, one of the most-streamed Singaporean female singers on Spotify. The stadium’s wonky acoustics made her performance a mixed bag, but I chalked it up to the echo, possibly exacerbated by the closed roof due to forecasted rains.

Before Chris Martin and the gang took the stage, animated videos promoting environmental initiatives set the tone for a night of not just music, but also sustainability. They had cool interactive initiatives, such as generating electricity through kinetic bikes and dance floors. They also promoted quite a number of organisations, like The Ocean Cleanup, One Tree Planted, and more, that aimed to heal the earth.

At 8.30 pm, the National Stadium erupted in a sea of screams as Coldplay emerged, launching into “Higher Power.” The dazzling lights from our LED wristbands added an extra layer of magic to an already mesmerising performance. The concert kicked off with a bang, featuring confetti and bouncy balls that set the tone for an energetic and immersive experience.

Midway through the show, Chris engaged in a ‘sign reading’ session, connecting with fans in the standing pit. As the night progressed, he asked fans to keep their phones off for just one song – “Sky Full Of Stars,” encouraging everyone to immerse themselves in the moment.

Chris Martin’s magnetic charisma was a focal point throughout the night. His genuine warmth and infectious energy created an intimate connection, turning a massive arena into a personal space where every fan felt seen and appreciated.

The production value of the concert was nothing short of spectacular. A symphony of lights, lasers, and confetti added a visual dimension to the auditory masterpiece unfolding on stage. A poignant moment came when the band performed “The Scientist,” accompanied by a breathtaking display of illuminated wristbands worn by the audience, transforming the entire arena into a pulsating sea of colour.

Of course, no Coldplay concert would be complete without their iconic anthems that have become synonymous with unity and hope. From “Yellow” to “Fix You” – both my favourite songs by the way, each song elicited an emotional response, reminding us of the power of music to heal and inspire.

In conclusion, attending Coldplay’s concert in Singapore earlier this year was nothing short of a transcendent experience. From their electrifying performance to their heartfelt connection with the audience, Coldplay proved once again why they are one of the most beloved bands of our time. If you ever have the opportunity to see them live, seize it without hesitation – you won’t regret it.
