Coldplay's Chris Martin: "We Really Don't Care About Looking Cool"

9 November 2012, 11:02

The 'Paradise' front man speaks about how excited he gets before a live performance.

Coldplay's Chris Martin has confessed that the band are not concerned about looking cool when they take to the stage because they want to enjoy every moment of their live performance.

The 'Every Teardrop Is A Waterfall' star opens up about his feelings of excitement before a show during an exert taking from the band's forthcoming live DVD.

"When the lights go down, that's 30,000 people's lives colliding. For that one moment, everyone there working is working for that moment, everyone watching is watching for that moment," he reveals. "It's when you're all in agreement about what you're all doing so it's a wonderful feeling of togetherness and possibility."

The British star admits that the same feelings of adrenalin he occurs when he is performing are echoed when he watches someone else live.

"I start getting real adrenalin and start doing Rocky shadow boxing and all that. I get as excited as anyone else and I still get that excitement when I go see anyone else's concert – I love that moment," he declares.

Chris also speaks about people's perceptions of himself and the band and criticises other group's who pretend not to look like they're enjoying themselves on stage.



"Whilst it might not be perceived as cool to be really enthused by the fact that people show up to hear your music -we don't give a f***, we really love that," he adds. "It's exciting when you're 15 and you throw a party and people come so imagine what it's like on a daily basis with 20,000 people coming – it's crazy."

The new DVD will be accompanied with a live CD – which was all recorded during their current 'Mylo Xyloto' world tour and is released on 19th November.

The band have previously admitted how they feel they are performing at their best during their latest outing.
