If they ever get to India, here is exactly what we should expect.
Coldplay’s 4th headlining set at Glastonbury was, as you’d expect, nothing short of epic. The band made the most of their slot, calling Barry Gibb of the legendary Bee Gees on stage and enthralling the packed crowd. “We came here a little scared for the state of the world, but to see Glastonbury makes you believe together we can do anything,” said Chris Martin during their set, probably referring to Brexit. Confetti balloons and lights made their presence felt as the band dished out hit after hit for all their fans on stage during the final set at Glastonbury 2016.

What made their show even memorable, though, were two things: the presence of the only surviving Bee Gees member Barry Gibb, and the touching tribute to a band that unfortunately lost their lives in an accident this year, Viola Beach.
Barry came out to perform accoustic versions of You Don’t Know What It’s Like and the ever-popular Staying Alive.
To pay their respects to Viola Beach, Coldplay performed one of their songs on stage, and tried offering them an “alternate future” in the process, in Chris Martin’s words.
Another presence felt on stage was that of Micheal Eavis, Glastonbury’s founder, who was jokingly introduced by Martin as “the greatest singer in the world”
Coldplay closed what was hailed as the “muddiest Glastonbury ever” by the founder himself, and he blamed climate change and torrential rain for the same.
