Patriots get Super Bowl endorsement from Coldplay

When Coldplay was in town for the "Head Full of Dreams Tour," the band's front man made the case for the Patriots to win the Super Bowl.

In the middle of confetti rain, Coldplay's lead man Chris Martin used seemingly endless energy to ignite the Gillette Stadium crowd on July 30, and when the singer offered up some "political" insight, the crowd went even crazier.

"We know there's a presidential season going on so we'll tell you what we think … we endorse the Patriots to win the Super Bowl," Chris said.

The comment came after the band met Tom Brady, Julian Edelman and Danny Amendola backstage. The players took a few pictures, talked with the band before they went onstage and stuck around to see Coldplay take the stage, and the trio apparently made a big impression on the British band.

Later in the night as Coldplay rocked out playing "Up&Up" off their newest album, "A Head Full of Dreams," Chris called an audible and sang "The Patriots are going to win the Super Bowl" in the chorus, garnering a positive reaction from the crowd. 

Coldplay jammed out in front of a sold-out Gillette Stadium audience with Alessia Cara and Foxes opening up the show.

The Head Full of Dreams Tour marks the beginning of the end of the Gillette Stadium concert season. Kenny Chesney's Spread the Love Tour rolls into town on Aug. 26 and 27, and Bruce Springsteen closes out the year with The River Tour on Sept. 14.
