When asked how he compares performing at our intimate beach house to his show at Gillette stadium, Chris admitted that performing for 100 people was “much more nerve-racking” for him. He explained, “I mean love it. I love to play, and I feel so grateful, and if we don’t hang out with you guys, we don’t get to do those big shows. You’re responsible for those people showing up, so I feel like it’s a nice thing to do.”

When asked how Coldplay got Beyoncé on their album, he jokingly answered, “There was a competition between all the English bands, like ‘win a chance to sing with Beyoncé.’ Someone’s supposed to send in the best hand-drawn sketch of her and Jay, and I did a charcoal print of the two of them skinny dipping, so that’s sort of what happened. But I also texted. She responded with a thumbs up emoji and then a cash symbol.”
