In an age when a bands popularity can come from their appearance or pop-following, it's nice to know talented groups such as Coldplay can produce good music. While many people expected this group to become forgotten about, their popularity has only increased over the year. Now, they sell sold-out shows in dozens of countries including the United Kingdom, United States, Japan, South Korea, Australia and New Zealand just to name a few.
The widely-popular alternative rock band Coldplay was formed in the mid 90's by Chris Martin and Jonny Buckland. The two met while attending the University College of London as students and quickly hit it off as friends. Because of their mutual appreciation for music, they started collaborating on songs with Chris helping to write songs for Jonny. Soon, Guy Berryman and Will Champion joined their group and Coldplay was officially formed in 1998.
After the formation of the band, they quickly went to work and began producing songs under the management of Phil Harvey. The groups first album “Parachutes” was released in 2000 and included their first hit single, “Yellow”. Critics praised Coldplay's originality, vocals and instruments. It was an all-around success for the group with more than 2 million copies sold within the first year of its release. However, the band didn't close up shop and call it quits with their success. They continued to push the limits of their talents, making more music for their fans around the world.
While the group was enjoying the steady sales of their first album, they kept busy touring both the United Kingdom and the United Sates. Coldplay tickets
were a hot commodity and concerts were selling out for both of their tours. In fact, Coldplay London tickets were selling out in minutes at some of the smaller venues.
In 2001, just months after the release of their first album, Coldplay began working on their second album titled “A Rush of Blood To The Head”. After writing more than 20 songs for the new album, it was finally released in 2002. This new album features several hit songs such as “Clocks”, “In My Place” and “The Scientist” which were blasted over the radio waves.
Coldplay then spend the next year and a half touring around the world while promoting “A Rush of Blood To The Head”. They traveled to over a dozen countries in five different continents and received praise and a loyal fan-gathering everywhere they went.
The talent and skill that went into making the groups albums didn't go unnoticed. They received dozens of nominations and awards including a Grammy for the best alternative music album in 2003 and record of the year for “Clocks” in 2004.
