Coldplay Wow Fans Ahead Of Summertime Ball 2012 At Huge London UK Tour Gig

Chris Martin paid tribute to to wife Gwyneth Paltrow during Emirates Stadium concert.

Coldplay overcame heavy rain to perform for "the best fans in the world" as their UK tour continued in London last night (2nd June).

The band delighted the sold-out crowd with a career-spanning set at the second of three gigs at the Emirates Stadium.

Taking to the stage a week ahead of their appearance at Capital FM's Summertime Ball, Coldplay kicked off their performance with 'Hurts Like Heaven'.

The song was one of a number of tracks played from their latest album 'Mylo Xyloto' and was accompanied by the band's now infamous flashing wristbands, given to every audience member on arrival at the stadium.

Frontman Chris Martin could barely contain his excitement as he leapt around the stage, which featured three long runways extending into the audience.

Ahead of debut album track 'Yellow' and as the rain began to fall, the singer paid a rare public tribute to his wife, Hollywood actress Gwyneth Paltrow.

"I'm going to sing this for my beautiful wife Gwyneth, hopefully you can sing it for someone you love to," he said, sitting at his piano.

The song was one of a number of the band's older tracks that was refreshed for the gig, either with an acoustic touch and a more minimal rendition.

Coldplay unleashed a series of special effects during their performance, including huge balloons and lasers which shone out across the audience.

But it was the crowd's wristbands that lit up again during new songs 'Charlie Brown' and 'Paradise', creating a sea of multi-coloured lights, that were the clear fan favourites.

The band concluded their performance with 'Clocks', 'Fix You' and recent 'Every Teardrop Is A Waterfall'.
