It was the first time for the Coldplay to perform here in the Philippines. When I heard that they’ll be having a concert here. I really save a lot. Just a short story here. I remembered April 2016 announcements here and there that Coldplay will be coming and my friend Adrian also wants to go. Then November 2016 came, the announcement of the exact date of the concert and the ticket prices.
Fast forward in buying the tickets, after my work I went directly to SM Cebu but then I didn’t expect that many people will also buy. As the mall opened, people are running, then went ahead to SM tickets near IMAX. As we were lining and given priority numbers, we also tried to check online on our phones then SM online had system shutdown after 4 hours it went back but the tickets were sold out already 😭😔💔. But still we didn’t lose hope. We booked for our plane tickets and for our accommodation. AAAAAND~ March 2017 came the SM Tickets announce that they’ll be selling tickets again. Finally I am holding the ticket! I really want to scream and jump of happiness.
Coldplay is composed of four members namely Chris Martin (lead vocalist and keyboardist), Jonny Buckland (lead guitarist), Guy Berryman (bassist) and Will Champion (drummer).

I had been singing all throughout the concert. When the intro of the A head full of dreams starts to play, my heart beats fast as our xylobands start to light up. As Chris starts to sing, people are cheering and starts to jump. The experience was so amazing. I cried when they sang two of my fave songs of all time Fix you and A Sky full of stars. If there will be next time they will be back again, I’d still go, why not? But on a seat closer to the stage.
