During the soundcheck, previous to their November 11 show in Brasil, Coldplay surprised fans by playing a cover of “De Música Ligera“, a classic by argentinian band Soda Stereo.
The moment was captured by fans waiting outside Arena de Gremio in Porto Alegre. In the video you can hear Chris Martin perfectly singing in spanish. Coldplay is closing their A Head Full Of Dreams Tour tomorrow (November 15) in Buenos Aires, Argentina which generated speculation about the band playing Soda Stereo’s classic live during their performance at Estadio Único de La Plata.
Last year, during a press conference in Mexico, Chris Martin said that “De Música Ligera” is the song that best defines latin american music.
