What do you think of when you hear the name Coldplay, or the name Imagine Dragons? Fans might lean towards incredible showmanship and electrifying hits whereas others might ask why these groups are even in the same sentence. Well, the Candlelight series is bringing two impressive discographies together at Belfast Castle, a breathtaking mansion in Cave Hill Country Park, for a tribute to two groups that have the power to both uplift and strike an emotional chord with their audiences.
Since the band was formed in 1997, Coldplay has gone on to become one of the most influential bands today. Imagine Dragons may be newer to the music scene, but their six studio albums and position as one of the world’s best-selling music artists would indicate otherwise. And now you can rediscover Coldplay’s synth-pop edge and pop-rock tracks alongside Imagine Dragons’ electropop and indie rock songs and more at this mesmerising performance in Belfast.
The setlist includes takes on “Something Just Like This”, “Adventure of a Lifetime”, and “Clocks”, among other Coldplay hits. Imagine Dragons fans can look forward to hearing classical renditions of “Bad Liar”, “Believer”, and “Radioactive”. Don’t miss out on hearing what the Arco String Quartet can bring to music from two of the most popular bands in the world.
Candlelight will make you “a believer, believer” in the spellbinding power of translating contemporary this into the classical form. Invite your friends and family along and find your seat inside Belfast Castle for an unforgettable evening out. The blend of countless candles and legendary melodies creates an incomparable atmosphere. What’s more, with the performance taking place at 7 pm, you can plan for a pre or post-show dinner.
