Coldplay are one of history’s most successful bands. They are also one of the most enduring. Since forming in 1996, they have gone on to exceed all expectations and their songs, from “Yellow” to “Viva La Vida”, will live long after they have gone. They will also shine and burn bright at these sensational Candlelight concerts taking place at the Athenaeum Theatre in Melbourne.
A classically-trained string quartet takes to the Athenaeum stage this autumn to perform awe-inspiring renditions of Coldplay’s anthemic hits. You’ve been waiting for “Something Just Like This” to reintroduce you to the iconic band’s beloved music.
Although they have sold more than 100 million albums globally and their sound continues to evolve from their early records to their most recent releases, Coldplay are one of the most polarising acts on the planet. People still claim that all their music sounds the same but it’s just not true, and Eclective Strings (string quartet) will shine a light on the matter thanks to their incredible talent.
Eclective Strings will reimagine classic songs like “Clocks”, “Adventure of a Lifetime”, and “Fix You” as well as “Sunrise”. As candles glow, light flickers and dances, and hands move over strings, the music will resonate and sound as if these songs were written just for you.After having enormous success around the world—in cities like London, Manchester, Madrid, Barcelona, and Paris—Candlelight brings its unique experience to Melbourne to pay tribute to one of the most popular and influential bands in the world.
Guests will delight in the music in the beautifully lit-up venue, one of Victoria’s oldest public institutions and is listed on the National Trust’s Register of Historic Buildings since 1981. Add hundreds of candles and your evening will be magical.
Note: For the safety of our audience, all of the candlelight will be provided through flameless candles
