Coldplay kick off US stadium tour

Associated Press Associated Press 17/07/2016

Coldplay have kicked off their US stadium tour with a colourful show including fireworks, confetti and balloons, mixed with American pride, sympathy for France, moving words from Muhammad Ali and audio from President Barack Obama.

The British foursome led by Chris Martin performed for feverish fans on Saturday at the MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey.

Martin worked the stage playfully throughout the night.

He ran up the long aisle enthusiastically, rolled on the floor like a child, rocked on the guitar and crooned on the piano.

He held the American flag at one point while the audience roared, later putting it in his back pocket and keeping it there throughout the band's electrifying set, which included songs such as Yellow, Speed of Sound, Viva la Vida and Fix You.
