WATCH: Saxophonist gets hundreds of Queenstown tourists grooving with 'magic' Coldplay cover

Proof that a Kiwi summer is unmatched.

Kiwis and tourists flocked to Queenstown over New Year's for the sunny Lake Wakatipu views and all-around good vibes of the Alps. What they didn't know they'd be treated to was saxophonist Eliott Allemand’s incredible talent.

Playing the iconic Coldplay track 'Viva La Vida,' the 21-year-old captured the attention of hundreds of fans off the street, gathering to create the most wholesome singalong in the heart of the town.

The energy is unmatched in the clip shared to Eliott’s TikTok, captioned: “Magical moment! We need more love like this in the world.”

The video captured not just a beautiful musical moment but the true vibrant vibe of a Kiwi summer.

As the saxophonist played his heart out, the crowd couldn't help but join in, shouting the lyrics and having a good ol’ boogie.

The energy was sensational as a lovely couple, caught up in the moment, danced and cheered the musician on.

The comments poured in, with one user writing: "Queenstown again puts on a show.”

“This is the best thing I’ve watched in forever,” said another.

A third added: “Summer in NZ has never been better. People wanna just sing and dance in the sun, and it’s wonderful!”

"This is why Coldplay needs more than three shows in NZ,” wrote a fourth.

The British pop-rockers announced their three New Zealand show dates for their 2024 'Music Of The Spheres' world tour late last year.

The band was set to perform one show only in Auckland next year, but due to overwhelming demand, the band added an extra two dates to their stop.

This makes Coldplay break the all-time record as the first artist(s) to play three nights in Eden Park’s 123-year history.

How amazing would it be if Eliott jumped up on stage with the band to spread the wholesome vibes around the stadium? Now that's something I want to see!
