“It makes me laugh sometimes that these things that you have written in the heights of loneliness, in the middle of the night, when everyone is asleep - then suddenly there are 20,000 people singing it with you, its such a funny transition; because you could not have started in a more individual place..

“Xylobands are the greatest inventions for our concerts that I can ever imagine.”- Chris Martin.
