Coldplay fans label band's 2016 Glastonbury headline show as best live set ever

Coldplay took us back to 2016 as BBC Two aired their last iconic Glastonbury headline set to mark what would have been Glasto 2020.

Chris Martin and co. played on the Sunday night of the music extravaganza four years ago, following on from Adele on the Saturday and Muse on the Sunday.

(BBC Two also screened Adele’s performance tonight – watched by none other than the lady herself from the comfort of her own home).

Fans flocked to Twitter to lavish praise on Coldplay’s set – which included hits like Yellow, The Scientist and Every Teardrop is a Waterfall.

Said one viewer: ‘Watching @[email protected] 2016. One of the best sets live I have seen. Hairs on the back of my neck sit up. Can’t wait to see live music in this context again. It’s about people coming together & sharing positive experiences.’

A second added: ‘Cannot tell you how much I want to see Coldplay live! The #Glastonbury2016 set is just incredible. I’ve never understood how people actually dislike them!’

A third said: ‘Have to say I’m loving watching #GlastoAtHome #Coldplay know how to put on a show!’

Said another who witnessed it first hand: ‘@Coldplay headlining the Pyramid was bucket list material even after 4 days of mud carnage and Brexit! Much maligned but they’re just brilliant live – the epitome of Glastonbury; feel so lucky I was there.’

And another: ‘Nothing compares to Coldplay at Glasto. Unreal. One of the best nights of me life.’

Coldplay shot to fame in the year 2000 with their debut album Parachutes.

They have gone on to sell over 100 million records worldwide.
