- Coldplay Covers Soda Stereo's “Musica Ligera” at Estadio Ciudad de La Plata in Argentina
- British rock band Coldplay has currently toured A Head Full of Dreams Tour in South America. The band covered Argentine rock group Soda Stereo's song “De Música Ligera” in Spanish at Estadio Ciudad de La Plata in Argentina, where over 50,000 people watched Chris Martin's performance.
The song “Musica Ligera” was written by Soda’s late frontman Gustavo Cerati and the trio’s bassist Zeta Bosio, was released in 1990 from the album "Canción Animal".
Soda Stereo drummer Charly Alberti, who has never met the members of Coldplay personally, Chris Martin recently connected with him through star polo player Nacho Figueras, a mutual friend, to let him know about the band’s plan to perform the song.
Charly Alberti said, “I think it was fantastic that they did it. To have a band that doesn’t speak your language, that they rehearse it, they learn the words, that they make the decision to do it a show as important for them as the end of their world tour, it is an honor beyond anything I could expect, more so because Coldplay is a band that I really like, so the honor is even bigger.”
Coldplay also paid tribute to the five Argentines who were killed in the terrorist attack in New York City on Halloween.
Chris Martin said before the band played the song “Everglow", “We are going to send them a prayer and a lot of live."
