After having to cancel a Houston concert last week, Coldplay showed the flooded city some love from afar with a new song they wrote called, wait for it, "Houston." The band performed it for the first time at their Miami concert on Monday night.
Chris Martin, frontman for Coldplay, told the crowds that he and his fellow band members grew up loving country music, and that's what they think of when they visit Texas.
"So if you'll bare with us, this is a new song and we'll never play this again. It's a one-off and it's called 'Houston.'" "We're going to sing it Miami and for everybody here, and then we're going to send it [to Houston] for everyone that missed that show."
Then a slow, country melody played as Martin sang, "I'm dreamin' of when I get back to Houston/ I'm dreamin' of that very special place./ I'm dreamin' of when Houston has no problems/ In that city where they send you into space."
The band canceled its upcoming Friday night show in Houston due to Hurricane Harvey.
"We really wanted to play tonight, but sitting here all together watching the news about the storm we feel that we can't ask anyone to put their safety at risk,"
the band said in a statement on Facebook.
