Naturally 7 is pleased to confirm two shows with Coldplay

coldplay_main

Naturally 7 is pleased to confirm we will be opening for our friends, Coldplay, next month, for two shows in the U.S.:
  • Saturday, 29 December – Mohegan Sun Arena – Uncasville, CT
  • Sunday, 30 December – Barclays Center – Brooklyn, NY
Can’t wait! We feel honored to be invited by Coldplay to do these 2 shows … we are all big fans, so it’s gonna be like double the fun!” ~ Naturally 7.

If you’re wondering how the paths of Naturally 7 and Coldplay first crossed, let us take you back to January, 2009 …

Chris Martin was so blown away when he saw Naturally 7 perform, he invited them to join Coldplay in the studio the very next day.

The unusual US band – who combine singing with rap, which they call “VocalPlay” – were delighted when the Fix You singer turned up to their gig at London’s Pigalle Club last month, along with producer Brian Eno and Natalie Imbruglia.

Chris went backstage afterwards to meet the band and invited them into the studio with the rest of Coldplay the following day. The two bands spent around four hours working on a few ideas and may meet again to work on some tracks.

Roger N’glish Thomas, baritone and rapper for the group, said: “I didn’t quite believe that Chris Martin, Brian Eno, and Natalie Imbruglia had come out to see us perform the night before. But I chose to believe it because my eyes were seeing it. And then we had the opportunity to meet the whole band the next day.

“I told Chris when he extended the invitation to us, ‘There is no other place I’d rather be than hanging out with Coldplay.’”

“The visit was somewhat surreal, which is to be expected when you’re talking to musicians you have the highest respect for. We asked a lot of questions about their last album, recording and touring and they asked us a lot of questions about the concept of VocalPlay and our album Wall Of Sound.”

“The night was short, but sweet. And I look forward to whatever happens next!”

    Hey, Naturally 7! Congrats on your gig with Coldplay! Unfortunately for me, I’m am not close to either of those locations, or else I would be there! I check your website frequently for your tour schedule, always hopeful I’ll see a Philadelphia/New York City/South Jersey/Delaware show date. How come you don’t play more U.S. venues?? You have a dedicated fan base, and my friends and I would be at all your shows if they were closer. Your U.S. fans need to see more of you!!! Please schedule something near me!! Happy Thanksgiving and Happy Holidays to all of you and your families!

    Your Number One Fan,

    Sue from Philadelphia

    Sue,

    Do you know that the Barclays Center Arena is in New York CIty? Its the most amazing venue you imagine that just opened up a few months ago. You can get there from Philadelphia without a car since 11 subways go there, many in the less than 20 mins from Penn Station. That place kicks MSGs butt. Go see them tomorrow night. I am!
