“Every night, before we go on stage, I think of the person in the top seat in the back of the room. Like, what would they want to see? So I forget about my own issues. It’s like you can flick a switch and just letting yourself go, and it’s an amazing feeling.” - Chris Martin

It wouldn’t be a Coldplay show without confetti, and in just one week of being on tour I’ve become a confetti master.
Well, perhaps that’s a bit of an over exaggeration, but I have now officially been put in charge of one of the confetti cannons during Coldplay’s show!
Each one towering at least a foot taller than me, the cannons blast the famous Coldplay confetti into the air, creating a rainbow that flutters down over fans during the gigs. At each show over 400 pounds of Coldplay confetti is showered over the crowd, coordinated by a crack team of Special Effects Technicians.
My confetti debut took place at the show in Lima, Peru - after saying goodbye to my team of (amazing!) volunteers as they went off to watch the gig, I ran to my station next to my cannon and - with the twist of a gas canister and the precision pushing of a lever - launched hundreds of thousands of pieces of confetti into the sky above the stadium. Fans reaching up to grasp hold of the Coldplay stardust as it showered over them to the tune of A Sky Full of Stars. It looked amazing, if I do say so myself!
So when you’re at the upcoming gigs in Brazil keep a look out for me as I launch confetti into the air (if you can take your eyes off how amazing it looks, of course!)
