Coldplay turn back the clock

 
 
 
 
Coldplay turn back the clock

"I have more cousins than this," quipped Chris Martin as Coldplay returned to the scene of one of their earliest gigs to play for just 400 people.

One of the world's biggest bands played against a backdrop of graffiti at Camden's Dingwalls, a venue no bigger than a small village hall.

The chart-topping stars played the venue in May 1998, just days after their first low-key, self-financed EP was released with just 500 copies made.

This time round a stream of adoring fans queued for hours outside in a bid to see Chris Martin sing and dance around the stage as though he was stepping on hot coals.

The audience were treated to songs such as Fix You and Viva la vida as well as some new tracks from their latest album, Mylo Xyloto.

The gig, presented by Jo Whiley, was part of Radio 2 In Concert, and fans can listen to it on December 15 at 8pm.

Jo Whiley described the venue as "intimate slash dingy" and said it was "steeped in folklore".

The band finished their set with a rendition of their old track Christmas Lights.
