NME scored Coldplay’s massive 2022 ‘Music Of The Spheres’ show in London a glowing five stars, writing: “This show is a welcome dose of serotonin; a feel-good celebration. The best Tuesday of our lives? That’s high praise indeed – but given the reception from the audience, you’d argue that for thousands of punters, it’s certainly up there.”
