Coldplay fans can request for songs at S’pore concerts

They just need to make a video explaining why.

By Belmont Lay | March 10, 2017

Coldplay will be taking song requests for their upcoming concerts in Singapore on March 31 and April 1.

On their website, the band wrote that requests for songs the band doesn’t usually play will be entertained.

To make a song request, fans must record and upload a short Instagram video of 15 seconds or less of themselves explaining why they chose that particular song.

The band @Coldplay has to be tagged in the post and include the #SingaporeRequest hashtag, indicate the day of the concert, and add the song title as a hashtag, for example, #Shiver.

All 100,000 tickets to Coldplay’s two shows at the Sports Hub were sold out within two hours of their release.

They were supposed to play for one night only.

Coldplay was last in Singapore in 2009 and had played at the Singapore Indoor Stadium.

This is what Coldplay’s website wrote:

Good afternoon. If you’re coming to any of the upcoming shows in Asia and there’s a Coldplay song you’d like to hear (one which the band don’t usually play), then we’d love you to send us your request video. Yours might get chosen and played! Here’s what you need to do…

– Record a short video (15 seconds or less) of yourself on a plain background telling us which Coldplay song you’d like the band to play.

– Please don’t have any music playing too – just you talking.

– Don’t forget to tell us why you’d like to hear your chosen song.

– Upload your video to Instagram with the name of your chosen song as a hashtag (ie #Shiver) PLUS the appropriate show hashtag from below (only one show hashtag per post, please). Please tag @Coldplay too. If you’re going to a show in a city which has more than one show, please also tell us which date you’re going to.


And then when you’re at the shows, we’d love you to share your pictures and videos on social media using these hashtags…


We’ll be posting lots of photos and videos on the band’s Instagram, Snapchat, Twitter and Facebook accounts too – and here on the official site.
