Just got back
Thankyou Chris for just you and your piano singing 'warning sign,' one
of many best bits for me....
I seemed to be in a minority where I was stood, singing along[not too
conspicuosly] I hope to the new album tracks, others obviously havnt
listened enough to it yet!
Why do they go so bananas for 'Yellow' ........many more high points
than that ..........brilliant evening, even if we wernt allowed our
cameras, taken away and had to collect it at end, so no pics
Same set list as Paris, except 'Warning sign' instead of 'See you soon'
What a day! When I first woke up yesterday morning I had no idea that
I would be at the Coldplay Forum gig, but then with a massive stroke
of luck I was incredibly over the moon to get two tickets from a fellow
coldplayer aka 'Cav_TX'. Thanks so much
The gig was absolutely amazing!!! Intimate, almost felt like they knew
half the people they were playing for. I was sitting upstairs among
what seemed to be the whole record industry, including their manager
whose birthday it was... Chris even got the crowd to join in on a Coldplay
rendition of the ever popular 'happy birthday'.
The opened with a blinding light and the intensely brilliant song ‘Politik’.
Throughout the night they mixed the tracks playing songs from both the
new album and from Parachutes. Chris did a couple of acoustic numbers
on his own, with Will doing some beautiful backing vocals.
Compared to other times I have seen Coldplay play, this was AMAZING.
They were happy to be in their hometown, and even more over the moon
that everyone was really getting into it (especially downstairs).
Upstairs there were quite a few record industry people hangin up at
the back bar talking all the way through the gig – I really felt like
this was a huge let down, even more so disrespectful to the band. BUT
THE BAND PLAYED ON and boy did they play!!!!!
Congrats Coldplay on a fantastic night, can’t wait to see you at Wimbledon
