Coldplay, Imagine Dragons Kick Off SXSW
What better way to kick off SXSW 2014′s music portion than with a Coldplay show that not only highlighted some of their biggest hits but also premiered four new songs from their upcoming album ‘Ghost Stories‘?
The quartet opened the show with ‘Always in My Head,’ and then moved onto ‘Magic,’ ‘Midnight’ and ‘Another’s Arms.’ You can watch the performance of this last song above.
Coldplay also played ‘Every Teardrop Is a Waterfall’ (which frontman Chris Martin admitted to messing up part of the intro), ‘Viva La Vida’ and ‘Fix You,’ among others.
Trip-hop breakouts London Grammar opened the show, stirring quite a bit of buzz with songs like ‘Wasting My Young Years,’ ‘Strong’ and ‘Metal & Dust.’ Imagine Dragons also performed, filling their set with the hit ‘Radioactive,’ ‘Cha Ching (Until We Grow Older)’ and ‘The River.’ You can watch Imagine Dragons perform their hit ‘Radioactive’ below.
