Coldplay know how to have a great time on tour. You can tell by the loose and free vibe in the new video for the title track from A Head Full of Dreams. The Marcus Haney-directed clip opens with the same Charlie Chaplin speech about uniting as one human family from The Great Dictator that plays before each show on their world tour (“We all want to help one another. Human beings are like that. We want to live by each other’s happiness – not by each other’s misery”).
And then… well, they hop on their customized BMX bikes and take a wonderful adventure ride through the streets of Mexico City on their way to an April gig at Foro Sol Stadium. Cruising down sidewalks and ramps, singer Chris Martin mouths the song’s opening verse as the quartet pedal right onto the stage, at which point the visuals focus on color-splashed Super 8mm footage from the massive gig.
