London, June 18 : Coldplay's secret inspiration for its spectacular concerts is Mary Poppins - the hit Disney film about a magical nanny.
The group's frontman Chris Martin revealed that the brolly-wielding supernanny has inspired them to come up with fantastic shows for their fans.
"We grew up with Mary Poppins and all those sorts of things," The Sun quoted him, as saying.
"We love making big shows up and trying to work out what lights will look cool. We get very nerdy about it because we can't believe we're allowed to do it.
Coldplay - who performed at Brixton on the night of June 17- have splashed out 900,000 pounds on six giant video orbs dangling from the ceiling.
