Commemorating one of the highest-grossing tours ever (at the time surpassed only by U2 and the Rolling Stones), Coldplay put a triumphant cap on their global A Head Full of Dreams stadium tour with Live in Buenos Aires. Coming full circle at Estadio Ciudad de la Plata (both the starting and finishing point of the tour), the English quartet performed nearly two-dozen favorites, focusing on their most rousing, inspirational singalongs, which were energized with copious amounts of exploding confetti, fireworks, and their now-signature light-up LED bracelets, the "Xylobands." The first Coldplay live album to be entirely recorded at a single show, this collection reflected the band's general tour set list and its specialized party-centric atmosphere (take, for example, the inclusion of Tiësto's remix of "Paradise," used to get the crowd going). Aside from the six fresh A Head Full of Dreams entries, they stick to the tried-and-true favorites, providing fans with yet more live versions of "God Put a Smile on Your Face," "Yellow," "Clocks," and "In My Place." Without any deep cuts or rarities -- the cover of Bowie's "Heroes" that was a staple of the first half of the tour is sadly absent, but the 2017 Chainsmokers collaboration "Something Just Like This" is present -- the only surprises are site-specific treats "De Musica Ligera" (a cover of Argentine rock icons Soda Stereo's 1990 hit) and the previously unreleased "Amor Argentina," Coldplay's heartfelt, tango-flavored love letter to the local fans. Even though more than half of the set can already be heard on Live 2003, Live 2012, and Ghost Stories: Live 2014, this tour's overwhelming energy and the crowd of nearly 50,000 fans make Live in Buenos Aires a joyous, communal experience. And yet, despite the massive scale, the band -- and Chris Martin in particular, delivering stage banter entirely in Spanish -- still manages to intimately connect with each fan (and, by extension, listener), a huge part of why they could sell out venues over a year and a half and 114 shows. Unabashedly embracing the feel-good spirit that defined their second decade together as a group, Coldplay jumps headlong into the clouds with Live in Buenos Aires, their most endearing and exciting live statement to date. [A special edition of the album bundled Live in Buenos Aires with the concert video Live in São Paulo, which was filmed at Allianz Parque just a week before the tour's finish. The set list mostly remains the same, with A Head Full of Dreams track, "Birds," replacing "God Put a Smile on Your Face," and the Argentina-centric C-stage songs switched with "Us Against the World" and newly written Coldplay song "Paulistanos," dedicated to the city and its fans. There's also an unexpected version of "In My Place" with drummer Will Champion taking lead vocals. For those who missed seeing this tour live, Live in São Paulo provides an exuberant glimpse into the unforgettable experience that Coldplay crafted for the Head Full of Dreams Tour, with rapturous crowd shots and expanded wide shots capturing as much of the unbridled joy and visual overload as possible. With their simple message of love, tolerance, and acceptance, Coldplay transcends borders and languages with Live in Sao Paulo. Additionally, the three-part "Butterfly Package" added a final layer to the Buenos Aires/São Paulo pairing with the Mat Whitecross-directed documentary A Head Full of Dreams, which chronicled the band's rise over two decades.] ~ Neil Z.
