Fans at Coldplay Athens show chant for hostages’ release

Video shared on social media shows groups of people breaking into chants of “Bring them home,” during a Coldplay concert in Athens.

According to reporter Ben Caspit, the groups chanting were Israelis who had traveled to the show; Athens is among the most popular vacation destinations for Israel, especially with many now avoiding Turkey due to diplomatic tensions over Gaza.

The British group last played in Israel in 2022, and frontman Chris Martin has visited the country on his own. In 2017, the band was reported to have been planning an Israeli-Palestinian “peace concert” near the Dead Sea.
