Coldplay to receive Godlike Genius Award at NME Awards 2016
Coldplay will receive the Godlike Genius Award at the NME Awards 2016 with Austin, Texas.
The band will pick up the award in person and play live at the ceremony on February 17 at O2 Academy, Brixton, London.
Coldplay, who recently released their seventh studio album ‘A Head Full of Dreams’ and have sold 80 million records worldwide, will perform an exclusive set of their greatest hits to close the show.
Speaking of their win, Chris Martin said: “We’re extremely grateful to the NME for giving us this award. It’s a huge honour and it means everything to us as Coldplay would be nothing without the NME. Appearing in the magazine for the first time in 1998 – in the smallest font – was the biggest thing that ever happened to us, and their love and support changed our world. Thank you so much NME.”
