Coldplay Mylo Xyloto Tour Reviews


The US Leg of the tour has seen the band play in LA at the Hollywood bowl. The influential LA Times said of the band

“For an act that crankier critics accuse of playing middlebrow post-indie-rock for Apple adverts, this was awfully ravey. The London quartet, one of the biggest bands to emerge in the 2000s, is certainly grounded in earnest guitar-and-piano emoting (with the good taste and huge budgets that afford Brian Eno as a producer).”

LA TIMES May 2nd 2012
USA Today reviewed the new Mylo Xyloto album saying

Thematically and musically, Mylo Xyloto does come across as a medium-weight and up-to-date blend of middle-period U2, the Beach Boys’ Pet Sounds and Coldplay’s last three albums.

USA TODAY 23rd October 2011
Coldplay played HP Pavilion at San Jose on 28th April 2012 The Mad Priest commented on the crowd reaxtion to Coldplay

It’s always moderately to severely annoying when an entire crowd sings along during a show, but there’s something endearing about Coldplay fans. The emotion was so thick! Don’t even pretend like you wouldn’t sing along/cry through “Yellow”.

The Mad Priest 30th April 2012
