Coldplay has turned Barcelona upside down. The British group held yesterday the first of the four concerts they have scheduled in our country, more specifically at the Estadi Olímpic Lluís Companys in the Catalan city.
The music group led by Chris Martin has reserved May 24, 25, 27 and 28 at the aforementioned venue, days in which their fans will fulfill a dream. It should be noted that the interpreters of The Scientist and Viva la vida have hung the sold out sign on each and every one of the available dates after exhausting the 200,000 tickets for the four appointments.
Yesterday was the first day in which the English group demonstrated its quality and professionalism before the Catalan public. Thousands of people from our country and from other parts of the world attended the acclaimed event excited and nervous to hear great songs of the likes of Clocks, A Sky Full of Stars or Princess Of China.
Among the tens of thousands of viewers, the fans detected one of the couples of the moment: the singers Aitana Ocaña and Sebastián Yatra. The duo stood in one of the stands of the stadium to enjoy the music of the group and they were happy to live that experience. Although they have not yet officially confirmed their romance, in recent weeks they have been much more relaxed and affectionate with each other, implying that little by little they are beginning to understand that the obvious cannot be denied.
One of the big surprises of the night was the presence of the Hollywood star Dakota Johnson. The Fifty Shades of Gray and Persuasion actress has been the Coldplay vocalist's girlfriend for five years, so it is not uncommon for her to attend some of his concerts. Despite her well-known relationship, English fans did not expect her to also travel to Barcelona.
Johnson and Martin star in one of the most discreet love stories on the current social scene, but they always support each other in the launch of the different projects in which they participate, as well as in events and public appearances.
Coldplay dedicated the first of their massive concerts to singer Tina Turner, who had just passed away at the age of 83. According to music critic Jordi Bianciotto, yesterday was a "great and sensitive" evening, worth admiring.
At the end of the concert, the band's followers filled the social networks with praise for the show and were happy and excited to have experienced a musical show in capital letters.
