NME is reporting on Coldplay's Glasgow performance last night:
Coldplay flew to Glasgow directly after their appearance on the Live 8 stage in London last night (2nd July).
The band played the second of two sold-out nights at the city's Bellahouston Park, a gig which had been announced prior to Live 8.
Despite travelling to and from London that day and playing three gigs in twenty-four hours the band seemed in fantastic spirits, with Chris Martin even declaring at the end that he considered this show the best they'd ever played.
Making reference to Live 8 just before playing 'Yellow' he said "Today's one of the most important days in musical history and we're glad to be here with you on it. We're in a very good mood and we hope you are too."
During 'Everything's Not Lost' he asked the crowd "sing it to George Bush, he's flying in" while pointing skywards, and added a chorus of Status Quo's 'Rocking All Over The World' to the end of 'In My Place' - as he also did earlier at Live 8, the song being the one which opened Live Aid twenty years ago.
