Coldplay performed in Miami last night and didn’t just dedicate a song to Houston; the band wrote a song for the city and played it as a one-time-only event to honour the storm-ravaged area.
“This is because we all grew up loving country music, and of course that’s kind of what we think of when we go to Texas,” frontman Chris Martin told fans at the concert. “So, if you’ll bear with us, this is a new song and we’ll never play this again. It’s a once-off and it’s called ‘Houston.’ We’re gonna sing it in Miami for everybody here, and we’re gonna send it over there to everyone who missed the show.”
What do you think of the song?
Martin sings, “I’m dreamin’ of when I get back to Houston/I’m dreamin’ of that very special place/I’m dreamin’ of when Houston has no problems,/In that city where they send you into space.”
Coldplay had to postpone its gig in Houston last week as the storm threatened the area.
