Taipei, April 11 (CNA) Coldplay, a British rock band, opened its first of two concerts at the high speed rail’s Taoyuan Station Plaza Tuesday.

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.

The two concerts Tuesday and Wednesday are expected to attract an audience of nearly 80,000, according to the organizer, setting a record for the largest outdoor concerts by any foreign performers over the last 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]
