Coldplay Postpone Concert Live Stream in Wake of Paris Attacks, Cover John Lennon’s ‘Imagine’
All ticketholders' passes will be honored at a forthcoming rescheduled concert, with date and location information to follow soon. Read the band's complete statement below:
Tonight’s live stream for TIDAL & KROQ has been postponed out of respect for the terrible events in Paris.
All tickets will be valid for the rescheduled show, with details to follow soon. For those of you already down at the venue and those on your way, we’ll play a short set of old material so that your journey isn’t wasted
We send our love and prayers to the people of Paris.
Despite postponing their concert, Coldplay promised a short set for fans who already made their way to the venue prior to the cancelation. They opened with a cover of John Lennon's "Imagine," which they dedicated to Paris and those affected by the attacks. And though the band intended to debut new music from their forthcoming album, A Head Full of Dreams, they instead played older material that has not appeared in their set lists for some time. As Stereogum points out, the band played Parachutes' "Sparks" for the first time in eight years and Mylo Xyloto's "Us Against the World" for the first time since 2012.

The New York Times reports 127 people have died as a result of coordinated attacks across the French capital on Friday night. One attack took place at the Paris concert venue Le Bataclan, where Eagles of Death Metal were playing a show when four gunmen started shooting. According to the BBC News, all of the band’s members made it out of the venue safely.
