AN­THEMIC Cold­play Croke Park, Dublin 6pm ¤144/¤109/¤89.50/¤69.50 (sold out) tick­et­mas­ More than 20 years after they formed, Cold­play have long since de­vel­oped into a dif­fer­ent, of­ten less in­ter­est­ing group. New EP Kalei­do­scope (out next week) may just hold out hope, how­ever, that Cold­play could still make mu­sic that stirred the senses – the lead track from the EP, All I Can Think About is You, is much closer to their ear­lier “good” songs than long-term on­look­ers might have wished for. These days, how­ever – and es­pe­cially in venues such as this one – it’s all about the an­thems. Cer­tainly, Chris Martin and friends have enough of them to last a cou­ple of hours. Sup­port acts Aluna Ge­orge and Lyves will ser­e­nade the early ar­rivers.
