COLDPLAY – SILVER CLEF AWARDS 2013
The incredibly successful and internationally acclaimed band, Coldplay, will this year receive the Royal Albert Hall Best British Act Award. The band, who formed in 1997, grabbed the world’s attention with their single, ‘Yellow’, in 2000. Since then they have sold out stadiums all over the world and performed at some of the most important events of a generation including Live8 and the 2012 Paralympics. With 5 consecutive no. 1 albums, over 60 million album sales and multiple awards including 8 Brit Awards – winning Best British Group three times – and 7 Grammy Awards from 25 nominations, the band have remained one of the biggest acts in the world for over a decade.
Chris Martin of Coldplay says, “It means a huge amount to us to be named Best British Act by Nordoff Robbins at the 2013 O2 Silver Clef Awards. Nordoff Robbins is an organisation that lies very close to our hearts. They provide life-changing music therapy for thousands of people each year and we’re humbled to collect this award in their honour.”
