At Thursday night's show at London’s Wembley Stadium, Coldplay paid tribute to Jo Cox, the British parliament member who was murdered earlier that day.
“We’d like to send love out to the family of Jo Cox,” frontman Chris Martin announced late in the set, following a performance of their 2015 track “Kaleidoscope” with the venue lights dimmed. He also mentioned the victims of the Orlando Pulse club shooting, whom Coldplay saluted with the song “See You Soon” the previous night. “None of us are entirely sure why that stuff goes on. All we can do is send our love out and hope everyone is able to recover," Martin said.
