Coldplay Revisit Classic ‘Yellow’ During ‘Good Morning America’ Appearance
Coldplay are keeping up a hectic schedule as they continue the promotional rounds in support of their latest album, ‘Mylo Zyloto,’ and early Friday morning (March 2) that meant swinging by Times Square and ABC’s New York City studios for an eye opening — literally! — performance on ‘Good Morning America’ that reached all the way back to their breakthrough 2000 smash hit, ‘Yellow.’ “We specialize in early morning gigs,” joked Chris Martin during their appearance.
Birthday boy Chris Martin — the singer turned 35 on Friday — was in top form for the gig, brushing off lukewarm reviews of his recent Grammy appearances to deliver a three-song set with his band. In addition to ‘Yellow,’ Coldplay also rocked recent hits ‘Paradise’ and ‘Charlie Brown,’ both also off ‘Mylo Zyloto.’
Coldplay are about as big in America as a band of somewhat mopey lads from England can get, yet a performance in front of a national TV audience during the high-stakes morning talk shows is still a big deal, and obviously Coldplay pulled out the big guns for the gig. The photo above, which the band posted on Twitter, captures Coldplay looking relaxed just before hitting the stage, while paparrazi snuck shots of Martin stopping to sign a few autographs on his way out of the GMA studios.
