Coldplay, formed in 1996 by lead vocalist and keyboardist Chris Martin and lead guitarist Jonny Buckland at University College London, is in Taiwan for the first time in two decades.

Rain began falling on Tuesday morning after a summer-like day the previous day, sending the mercury down and leaving nearly 40,000 fans worried that they might have to watch the performance in the rain, but it petered out until around 8:25 p.m., when a downpour came. [FULL STORY]
