Coldplay Gives Shout Outs to Matt Bellamy, Hogwarts and Twerking


Last night Coldplay, KROQ and Beats Music teamed up to bring radio winners and VIPs an intimate show at the Ace Hotel in Los Angeles. We’ve got photos and a recap!

For anyone listening to ol’ fashioned radio, KROQ aired the 16-song set nationwide–and Chris Martin acknowledged it too.

"Thank you so much everybody for being here at the Ace Hotel…this show is being broadcast all over the country, so, just want to say hello to people in Houston, Pittsburgh, St. Louis, and Austin, Washington D.C., Hogwarts, all these kind of places and the Bachelor in Paradise set, I hope they’re listening. I believe that the White House has shut down everything to tune into this concert, so let’s make it a good one.”

Chris Martin was all about the banter too, telling fans “You can twerk if you want to…this is what it was designed for, what it was made for!” during their hit “Magic.” See kids? You can twerk to anything if you put your mind to it.

Then before “Clocks” Martin dedicated the song to Muse’s own Matt Bellamy, calling him “one of the greatest men in the world.” Gotta love a public bromance.

While the set included many tracks off the band’s latest release, Ghost Stories, they played all the hits too. Check it out!
