Just days after canceling a gig in Houston due to Hurricane Harvey, Coldplay paid tribute to their Texas fans during Monday night's (Aug. 28) show in Miami with a new song dedicated to their love of all things Lone Star, "Houston." Singer Chris Martin explained to the crowd at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami that the group wrote the new song, "because we all grew up loving country music, and of course that's kind of what we think of when we go to Texas. So if you'll bear with us, this is a new song and we'll never play this again."
Martin explained that the band would play the acoustic song one time for fans in Miami and that they wanted to "send it over there to everyone who missed the show," with lyrics that pray for Texans to make it through the rain so the band can come back down to see them again soon. As spotted by HuffPo, the song features the lyrics, "I'm dreamin' of when I get back to Houston/ I'm dreamin' of that fair and special place/ I'm dreamin' of when Houston has no problems/ In that city where they send you into space/ I'm dreamin' of when I get back to Texas/ Corpus Christie, Harris County, Galveston... Houston you got to keep on keepin' on."
