This is also why, if you type I hate Coldplay into Google, you get thousands of results. But while journalists lob criticisms at the groups lush soundscapes and lyrics, remember what makes Coldplay unique: it shows a rare glimpse into male emotional sensitivity, a market its cornered with ease. And for as many music critics who have written Coldplay off, the proof is in the melodic pudding. The group has sold nearly 40 million albums, and still plays for packed stadiums around the globe. Witness just that when Coldplay plays BankAtlantic Center at 7:30 p.m. (2555 Panther Pkwy., Sunrise). Tickets range from $49.50 to $77.50, if theyre not sold out already.
