From Freddy Mercury in 1981 until today there is an action carried out by many rock stars who arrive in Argentina; at some point in their recitals they put on the jersey of the soccer team to “homage” to the receiving country. Comfortable and demagogic way to earn a standing ovation without much effort. But there is one honorable exception. When Coldplay visited Argentina in 2017, they chose a tribute full of commitment to the Argentine fans who expressed their devotion to them. At one point during the recital at the Estadio Único de La Plata they played from end to end of light music, the hit of Soda Stereo. Chris Martin and his boys had learned and rehearsed an Argentine song, in a language other than their own, and as if that were not enough, the singer closed the song with a phrase that is already a registered trademark of Gustavo Cerati. It was a moment of euphoria and emotion but also a great demonstration of the band’s respect towards the Argentine public. Of course, the most important thing is the music, but perhaps that attitude also serves to explain Coldplay’s link with Argentina, which, in recent days, has become visible in the 9 shows (550,000 tickets sold) confirmed at River for October/November this year. The record, uploaded on the official YouTube account of Soda Stereo, is not of the best quality, but it is worth as a document. of light musicby Soda Stereo by Coldplay, for you to enjoy all weekend.
