Coldplay Music of the Sphere show: Crowds enjoy first live concert at Lincoln Financial Field since pandemic

PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) — The concert return after nearly two years at Lincoln Financial Field happened on a picture-perfect evening Wednesday.

Coldplay was in town and the tailgates were fully functioning.

“All my friends were like, ‘Who would be the one band you would want to see when the world opens up again?’ My answer was Coldplay,” said Daria Rose of Broomall.

Action News has encountered all kinds of people enjoying the moment, like Erin Conway of Drexel Hill, Pennsylvania.

It was his birthday and his children made it even more special by accompanying him.

“It’s the best night of my life! I love it. It’s great!” said Erin Conway of Drexel Hill.

For so many in attendance, Coldplay was on their to-do list.

“I love Coldplay. I’ve wanted to go for years,” said Chris Lewis of Pitman, New Jersey.

The show started with fireworks, literally, and the band kicked things off with their new single “Higher Power.”

At one point during the performance, the band’s lead singer, Chris Martin, played his rendition of the song Eagles Fight.

The crowd joined him in an EAGLES chant!

Action News sports reporter Jamie Apody was among those present.

The show also included light up bracelets and a world-class light and laser show.

For regular Coldplay participants, they said in advance that there was no such thing.

“The best part of their shows are the wristbands they give you and the whole stadium lights up,” said Laurie Rogers of Havertown, Pennsylvania.
