Coldplay Dazzle In Cologne (PHOTOS)

Coldplay put on a breathtaking show last night, as the band brought their Mylo Xoloto tour to Cologne, Germany. (BRIT Awards’ Critics Choice recipient Emeli Sande opened the night with a “Heaven“-ly performance.) The group certainly lived up to their Billboard Reader’s Poll title of Best Festival Performers: The stage was decked out in giant balloons, laser lights and massive amounts of confetti that rained onto the Köln Lanxess-Arena stage during “In My Place”. The encore included “Clocks”, a cover of Bing Crosby’s “White Christmas” (it is the holidays after all) and, for the grand finale, “Every Teardrop Is A Waterfall“. Is this a taste of what we can expect from their 2012 North American tour?
