Coldplace are more than a tribute act to Coldplay - they believe they guarantee an authentic performance.

The band, formed in 2004 by frontman Shane Crofts, live and breathe their goal.

“We spend hours and hours studying Coldplay, from the way they move on stage, their mannerisms, the way they hold their instruments, how they address the crowd, and what they wear, to ensure we create an accurate stage show,” he said.

“It’s not just a case of learning their songs, but how they are delivered. We want to guarantee fans an authentic performance.”

Having performed more than 700 shows in 28 countries, they have been on the bill for Chris Evans’ Car Fest alongside Kaiser Chiefs, The Jacksons and Mel C, appeared on BBC Radio One and Two, The Gadget Show, and performed alongside musical legends such as Sir Bob Geldof and Ringo Starr - and are coming to the Hazlitt Theatre this weekend.

“Our 2018 tour is the biggest tour we have done to date across the UK, and we’re so excited to be coming to Maidstone,” said Shane.

“We have developed our show production to a level now where it works in a theatre environment, which gives us more scope to enhance the show with pyrotechnics, lasers and visuals, which we’re really excited about. We have recreated the incredible spectacle of Coldplay’s recent A Head Full Of Dreams sell-out tour, on a scale that is accessible to everyone.”
