Year of the Dragon

Oxford City Townhall

April - Matt Hobbs

Image of the stage in the Oxford Town Hall covered by very convincing electric candles and the wonderful domed ceiling and huge pipe organ.
Claire and I have seen Coldplay a couple of times in the past, so when we saw there was a string quartet playing Coldplay arrangements, we jumped at the chance to see and hear them!

They played many of their most popular songs. My favourite arrangement was “Fix you”. The photo shows the front stage arrangement with all the “candles” on display. I say it like that because thousands of candles all over the town hall would be a huge fire hazard. So they are all battery operated (but still quite convincing!). I'd hate to think how long it would take to replace the batteries (and the cost involved!)

If you get the chance to see them across the UK, I highly recommend it!
