Flyer for the show

Coldplay’s first show took place in the upstairs room of a pub called The Laurel Tree, not far from Chris and Jonny’s flat. The building still exists, but is no longer a music venue.

This is one of the small handful of Coldplay shows not mixed by Daniel Green. It is also notable for the short lived band-name Starfish, before they finally arrived at Coldplay. The gig was completely sold out – mainly as a result of the band’s persuasive skills amongst their friends.

Most of these folks, though, continued to come to all of Coldplay’s early shows, so it can’t have been too bad…
