They’re two of the biggest bands in the history of rock.
Coldplay and Imagine Dragons have performed in some of the world’s biggest stadia.
But audiences in Belgium will soon get the chance to listen to their ageless music as it’s never been performed before – and all this in one of the most impressive venues in Brussels.
The performance on 29 July will not feature any of the usual instruments normally associated with the bands but something quite different ….. a string quartet.
In what has been dubbed a “magical musical experience”, the candlelight concert takes place at the historic Concert Noble in Brussels city centre.
Visitors will get the chance to listen to the anthems of two of the biggest bands in the music industry but in a totally new light.
The event organisers said, “The event promises to be an unforgettable experience for music lovers.”
The stage will be illuminated by the soft glow of candlelight, creating an intimate and warm atmosphere. A string quartet will then perform specially curated selections of the bands’ most beloved hits.
The talented musicians, with Michelle Lynne on piano, will kick off the night with Coldplay’s emotional and uplifting ballads like Clocks, Something Like This, and many more. Then, they’ll perform Imagine Dragons’ energetic and catchy rock-infused pop hits like Believer and Bad Liar.
“The dim lighting and sea of candles will create a warm and relaxing atmosphere, making it the perfect setting for a special date or a night out with friends,” added the organiser.
Outlining the general concept, the organiser said, “We have a varied range of programmes. When the concept initially launched, concerts focussed on the greatest such as Vivaldi, Beethoven, Mozart, Strauss, Tchaikovsky, Chopin and Schubert. Now, our programmes include more modern artists such as Taylor Swift, Queen, ABBA, Coldplay, Ludovico Einaudi, Aretha Franklin, Adele, the Beatles and Ed Sheeran.”
The “candlelight concerts” are known as Fever originals, 100% created and produced by the company.
The concept, says the spokesman, brings classical music to an entirely new demographic, with 70% of attendees under the age of 40.
“Across our various channels we reach over 18 million people each week.”
The concerts have become well known for bringing classical music out of traditional concert halls and into unique venues that form part of each city’s cultural heritage. The selected venues “stand out in their historic nature or singular character, spanning from modern rooftops with great views to iconic cathedrals and palaces.”
The Imagine Dragons/Coldplay concert lasts an hour and the doors open 30 minutes before the start. Latecomers will not be admitted.
