Q. Hi!
I just wanna know why Coldplay played Crest of Waves for sound check? Does it have a particular reason?
Thank you :-)

The Oracle replies:

I was at the sound check in Paris on 28 May where the band played Green Eyes & Crest of Waves. Green Eyes was played later in the proper show - as it was again tonight in Tokyo.
Sound checks are a rare opportunity to try old songs and if they work out, they may make an appearance in the show or at a later date but sometimes they play songs at sound check just for fun.
