In Tune: Coldplay in Miami


Kathy Paz/Staff Writer

At an early age, I realized that my connection with music extended far beyond just enjoyment. For me, music represents the embodiment of things I can’t explain with simple words. It’s an accumulation of emotions, passions and everything the whirlwinds of life give and take away. Some moments are best captured with a song, and some memories are best relived with one.

I have been to a lot of concerts and festivals in my life, but none of that could have adequately prepared me for the affair that was Coldplay at the American Airlines Arena in Downtown Miami on Friday, June 29. The entire night became an experience, one I hadn’t necessarily expected to have to such an extent. Just after 9 p.m., the AAA went dark and the theme song of “Back to the Future” blasted through the venue. As Coldplay took the stage and began playing the instrumental title track from their lastest album, “Mylo Xyloto,” the chunky, colored bracelets each concert-goer had received upon entry to the Arena lit up and started flashing. Like their wearers, the Xylobands too began to dance in synchronization to the music. From that moment on, I knew this would be a night to remember and a show I would never forget.
