Coldplay performs sweeping tribute to Hurricane Harvey victims
On Friday, British rock band Coldplay announced it would be postponing its Houston concert at NRG Stadium due to Hurricane Harvey. On Monday night, the band sent its love onstage from Miami.

The band postponed its performance so fans would not put themselves in possible danger. Hurricane Harvey touched land on Friday, tearing through South Texas cities. The storm then moved toward the Houston area where the town continues to see dangerous, unprecedented flooding.
The band continued with its scheduled performance in Miami on Monday. The band announced to the Hard Rock Stadium faithful onstage that it would be playing a tribute song to Houston titled “Houston #1.” The song was out of the rock band’s comfort zone, delving into the country genre, but Chris Martin and friends nailed it.
“We all grew up loving country music, and of course that’s kind of what we think of when we go to Texas, so if you’ll bare with us,” lead singer Chris Martin told the crowd.
Martin said it was the last time the band would ever play the song live.
“We’re gonna sing it in Miami for everybody here, and we’re gonna send it over there [Houston] to everyone who missed the show.”
Coldplay has yet to reschedule its show in Houston.
