Coldplay’s Chris Martin received a champions welcome when he returned home to Devon to headline the Radio 1 Big Weekend. Lead singer, Chris, who is from Whitestone, paid homage to growing up in Devon calling it the ‘greatest’ county. While on stage at the event at Powderham Castle, Chris was on fine form and clearly loved performing on home turf, telling the crowds;

“You made me and us feel the most lucky band on earth,” he said. “If you can’t go home, where can you go?”

During the hour long set, fans were treated to performances of their back catalogue, including Paradise, Fix You and Hymn For The Weekend complete with laser show, fireworks and cannon shooting a downpour of multi-coloured confetti to add to the spectacle. The stage was transformed into a lemon haze smoke as the band started singing their worldwide hit, “Yellow” to a backdrop of a golden sun after one of the warmest days of the year.  The 25,000 Fans had waited all weekend for the super massive band to take to the stage against a backdrop of multi-coloured retro items and a garden full of garlands and floral decorations. The crowd simply could not get enough of Coldplay and chanted ‘we want more’ when they finished their set. To have such a home grown band returning to Exeter could not have rounded off a superb Weekender in better style.
