50,000 Coldplay Lights

Posted in Live Music, Manchester UK by Claire Burgess on June 18, 2012

Last Saturday I went to see Coldplay at the Etihad Stadium in and I just had to write a post to tell you how amazing it was. We were given a wristband on the way in – a small plastic box on a strap. I had no idea how amazing it was going to be until about 15 minutes in when the sun had gone down. It was like 50,000 little stars all beating along with the music.


I read in this week’s NME that it cost them £400,000 every night to do it and I have to say- for me it was worth every penny. The bracelets are made by Xylobands and it looks like they are based in Devon.

Here’s what they looked like in action:

TOTALLY Spectacular!

What a view!
