Touring in support of their latest album, “A Head Full of Dreams,” the British rock band Coldplay fired up Consol Energy Center during their performance Thursday in Pittsburgh.

The show began with a light show from fans' glowing red wristbands, lighting up all three levels of the arena before a barrage from confetti cannons flooded the stage with paper stars.

Lasers illuminated the runway as lead singer Chris Martin dashed up and down the stage during the opening set, beginning with the title track of the new album, followed by the popular hit “Yellow” and “Every Teardrop is a Waterfall.”

Coinciding with their seventh record, this tour is the band's seventh headliner, returning to large-scale venues across three continents.

Released on Dec. 4, the album debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard 200 in the United States. Following positive reception and exposure from Coldplay's headlining set at the Super Bowl 50 halftime show, the album reached No. 1 in the United Kingdom. At the 2016 Brit Awards, the album was nominated for British Album of the Year but fell to Adele's chart-topping “25.”

“A Head Full of Dreams” ranked eighth in best-selling albums of 2015, with 1.9 million copies sold worldwide.
