Coldplay frontman Chris Martin showed his support for the LGBTQ+ community by picking a rainbow flag from an audience member on the first day of his band’s concert, performing in front of a 50,000-strong audience.
Martin did so while singing Viva La Vida from the band’s fourth album of the same name as the crowd sang along to the chorus.
The two-hour concert by Live Nation Lushington featured pyrotechnics, psychedelic light displays, confetti showers and a cool moment where the wristbands of the audience lit up to the beat of the song.
But well, this moment speaks for itself:
Coldplay’s performance here is the fourth time the band has performed in Singapore, and by the looks of it, Singaporeans are clearly hungry for more. The band performs tonight, at the end of their two-day stop in Singapore for their A Head Full Of Dreams tour.
On the same day, the creator of the LGBTQ+ rainbow flag Gilbert Baker died in his sleep at his home aged 65, the BBC reported.
