I was wondering why their set list was so short? They were the headliner!!!
Does anyone know what the title of the third song was that they played?
Was it new or was it a B-side that I'm not familiar with?
No encore, nothing!!! In their defense a bunch of people left after
the pop-punk band Good Charolette played... but the people that left
were the 13 and under crowd, everyone in the 21+ crowd, and there were
a lot of us, (mostly hanging out at the bar waiting for ColdPlay to
come on and trying not to tortured by Good Charolette and New Found
Glory) waited all night for ColdPlay to play something like six songs!!!
Their performance was great, as always... Chris topped off the night
with a Christmas song that he played on piano.
First post on this board...FINALLY got to see Coldplay last night...also
for the first time as I was away all summer when they were here last.
They definitely didn't disappoint but I agree that their set should
have been longer. I think all the bands had the same set time just about.
As far as a list, they opened with Politik and In My Place. I did not
know the third song either.
From Parachutes they did a
more up-tempo version of "Don't Panic" and "Trouble"
and "Yellow." For "Trouble," Jon played the first
(slower) solo on harmonica. At the end of "Trouble" Chris
threw in a little of "Hot in Here" by Nelly. Since I am a
bit of an Anglophile---don't get me wrong I love my American music too----I
read UK Mags like Q and Mojo and I know Chris is apt to do things
From Rush they also did Clocks
(the new single here in America) and The Scientist---which they closed
with followed by Chris giving a nice rendition of "Have Yourself
a Merry Little Christmas."
I was very happy with the guys' performance but I wish they had played
longer....hope to see them again soon...
I loved seeing Coldplay last night, and ended up getting to the front
row with my boyfriend! I actually ended up getting a drumstick after
the show thanks to one of the guys cleaning up the stage!
I agree that it seemed as though they really didn't play much, being
the headlining band and all. I actually saw them in Australia a few
years ago at The Big Day Out.. and they were AMAZING out there, and
played for way longer even with 40+ bands at that concert. There they
played Spies, Shiver... which I was disappointed to not hear last night.
But all in all I mean, Coldplay is awesome... and like one of you said,
it was GREAT when the eleventeen year olds left and the people who truly
liked Coldplay could see them and not get pushed around in the mosh
First of all I can't believe those idiots at Y100 put Coldplay and Zwan
with those other bands! I flew to Ireland to see Coldplay in October
and would rather deal with the horror of crossing the Atlantic again
then to submit my ears to that, I can't even call it music. Seether
was decent, but I couldn't get into the other bands. I don't think the
little kids at the show realize that they were witness to music gods
The boys played Politik, In My Place, The one I love, Trouble, Yellow,
Clocks, Scientist, a little It's gettn' hot in here lets take off all
of our clothes, and Have yourself a Merry Xmas.
They were brilliant as usual. If it was the first time you have seen
them image them 10 times better, I know it doesn't sound possible but
it is true. Chris really feeds off of the audience, and that was the
worst audience I think I have ever seen. Usually at their shows everyone
sings along with them, it is amazing.
For the gals out there, just like at every show Chris has that child
like smile that is so genuine, you just can't help but smile right along
I was also at the Philly show and I have to agree that they shouldn't
have been on that bill with those other bands. I was embarrassed for
Coldplay. I was also one of the people hanging out in the corridor until
those other bands finished playing. I suffered through Good Charlotte
so that I could have a better chance of getting up close to the stage.
I figured a lot of people would leave after them, and I was lucky enough
to get really close to the stage. Anyway, I loved the show-- I was hoping
they would have played a longer set, but I can't complain-- they were
just simply amazing. I loved it when Chris first came out and said something
like, "We'll be the heart and soul of the show now." He is
so amazing. He melted my heart when he looked right at me when he was
singing "In My Place." I'll never forget that.
Hopefully they'll come around again sometime soon in a more intimate
I saw Coldplay at the Feastival for the first time and for me they were
absolutely amazing. I too thought the set list was short (why did he
say they'd play for about an hour?) and was disappointed they didn't
come back out- the lights went on immediately! I thought their selection
was great, though I would have liked to have heard Everything's Not
Lost. Closing with The Scientist was a close second though. They had
such heart and soul, as Chris said, and they made the huge arena seem
so much smaller- more of an intimate show. I did notice the young ages
of the kids (there to see the other bands I'm sure) but I soon forgot
i eat seeds
HOLY CRAP! THE SHOW WAS FUCKING AWESOME! but i'm biased cause i'm a
huge new found glory fan. and i think good charlotte is decent, as well,
but their fans are all fucking RETARDED, I wanted to punch like 80 of
them. They think Good Charlotte is the best punk band to ever live and
im like let's get one thing straight they're NOT PUNK. But whatever,
thats another story. SEETHER FUCKING SUCKED ASS. they sounded like nickelback,
I wanted to vomit. I was front row ... kinda off to the left side (the
audience left not the stage left)
QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE... WERE AMAZINg. their bassist is SICK at the
bass. he is...ridiculous. they are such a good band, it's amazing. I
had so much fun getting into their sound....they were so great. But
no one was really getting hype about their stuff, so that was sad. But
then, New Found Glory came on....and wow, just wow, I think what most
people don't understand about NFG is that they're all about the fun....they
don't take theirselves seriously, nor to their fans. Like, i take them
seriously as far as "they are the ultimate in fun...and can really
mix elements of hardcore and poppytypepunk and real punk quite nicely"...but
other than that, they just aren't a band like "all hail nfg..."
they're just good, they'll never be rock gods, like coldplay !! ARRRGH!
ZWAN MADE ME WANNA VOMIT! they had some really good talent and stuff
but they shoulda fuckin been on first, they dont even have a fuckin
album out, they played for too fuckin long, it made me so fuckin mad,
though their stuff wasnt "mosh-able" it made me want to start
freaking out and moshing just cause i was so mad that they were playing
so long, thats why i think coldplay was cut short, cause theres a certain
time when the concert has to end, stupid fucking ZWAN fucking ruined
I almost caught the harmonica! but it was brawl, i
felt like there was fumble in football and we were all in this pile
trying to see who had "possession" of the harmonica!!! it
was crazy! it just kills me how close i was to having... THE HARMONICA!!
OH MY GOD!
all in all, it was ridiculous for me to be front row at such an amazing
concert...during new found glory i brought the mosh, but for the rest
of the bands i just hung on the fence...it was GREAT. ahhhhh so many
of those annoying good charlotte freaks left after good charlotte was
over, and i was like WOOO HOOOO but then these annoying drunk girls
were getting in like fist fights with dudes behind me it was ridiculous.
i kept saying shut the fuck up under my breath cause they kept screaming
during the songs...ok, you can scream at cool parts....or scream after
the song, but not DURING, OK!?!?!? drunk is not an excuse. ah whatever,
they annoyed me. anyways, a bunch of the good charlotte freaks were
like "why is stupid coldplay headlining...it should be good charlotte"
i heard so many of them say that. i wanted to THROW UP...my last nine
meals. i felt like punching them for their idiocy. but anyway....all
in all, an amazing show...i couldnt believe i was withing like five
feet of COLDPLAY...it was NUTS. i loved when chris would go crazy dancing
around in circles, that was awesome. AH
WHAT A GOOD SHOW
i hate pop punk. ive hated it since i started listening
to rock music. all these ppl in the arena were pop punk fans as u could
see from their UNIFORMS-colorful hair or blonde, baggy pants, rubber
bracelets, hoodie, chucks, etc.
dey were fucking pissing me off whole time
seether was a great band n when i came in to pit n saw NIck(seether
drummer ) doing sound check, i was going crazy...ahhh hes hot...but
neway EH HEM, i was the only one going crazy in first row n dis dude
in the middle even gave them a finger in the middle of their set. WTF,
u dont see me beating up fucking poppunk bands. u really cant say nething
if u like pop punk since u have degraded urself by liking dat sorta
newayz. so i was like watever peeps. n queens of stone age were soooo
awesome. dey def. knew what dey were doing with their instruments. dey
r the band who knew their instruments the best. Nick Olivieri's solo
was funny cuz he couldnt sing for a shit
who was dat singer neway....he sorta resembled Steven Tyler....hmhm....
so ok, NFG comes out. these fuckers around me screaming jumping up n
down. im standing in the front, rolling my eyes. its funny cuz both
pop punk singers(GC n NFG) came right in front of me ( little to the
left from the middle) like 100000s of times, when other singers didnt.
n dey kept on looking at me whole time, cuz all these ppl were going
crazy around me while i was like lalala when is dis gonna b over...i
guess dey were wondering y i didnt like their COOL MUSIC. i think dey
were both good. its just dat whole genre sucks ass. so neway, after
NFG, nobody was on stage n ppl started pushing harder. i was sooo pissed
so i yelled out "CAN U GUYS STOP FUCKING PUSHING!!!" n OH
yea, dey DID stop pushing, for like 3 mins. so neway, when good charlotte
was playing, i was really dehydrated. n deir music was sooo pissing
me off, because they were just whining about their stupid highschool
life. watever yo, if u were picked on as kids, den u suck, u dont hav
to still whine about it when ur like 23.
so whole rolling eyeballs process began again, dis time me pinching
some of crowdsurfers also. i heard cracking sound in my neck when one
of em felt on me. GOD I HATE EM.
so after all the sufferings, GC was finally over, n half of the ppl
left. i was like DIE. dey r stupid as shit, dey claim to be unique n
stuff not realizing dat dey dress all same ns tuff. dey must hav POP
PUNK UNIFORM SITE where u can match all their clothes b4 dey come to
the cocnert. so neway, Coldplay finally came on, n dis was my first
coldplay experience. one word cant describe it, but best description
is-AWESOME. when i started listening to coldplay cd, Chris martin's
piano encouraged me to take lessons again. its just so beautiful. his
talents r amazing. i loved his dance but highlight of their set was
HOT IN HERRE. after trouble, martin kept on playing piano. i was like
wat is dis? he was all serious n coldplay-ish when he sang the song
so it was really funny. i was kinda disappointed at the length of the
set. i mean, i waited since 2 oclock, freezing my ass off outside just
to see em. but still, its better than nothing. dey were really amazing.
btw, dey r coming back to Camden? in Feb? or did i misread it. i cant
wait til i see them again!!!!!!!
one of the pop punk fans in my skool said " EW, u stayed for coldplay?"
dat whore is gonna get punched in the face. ROAR
my ribs still hurt. dis was not as bad as hoobastank concert though.
when i went to hoobi concert, i ended up with rows of bruises along
my arms upto myelbow + a breathing problem for like awk.....aw it hurts
at the Philly show, if any of you were in the front row, you most definately
saw me... I was wearing a red zip up soccer jacket thing (my brother
gave it to me from london) and I was taking Photos... I had a photo
yep that was me
seether.. i didn't really care for.. couldn't take good pics because
the lead singer like wearing his hair in front of his face..
it was like trying to take pics of cousin it..
QOTSA- i'm not really a big fan...they were..OKAY but their lighing
we can't take pictures in teh dark , or when strobe lighting is going
on...so we sorta just stood there..
New Found glory/Good charlotte- i cant believe the weirdo following
that these bands have...it was fucking dangerous to be up in the front
where we were because people were FLYING over the barrier... and i like
my camera and my face more than i like the bands, so i just wanted to
take my pics and get teh fuck out of there...
Zwan.. i like zwan... i got some really good shoots of them... their
lighting was pretty good except for when they fucking had FOG in the
beginning...when you can only shoot the first 3 songs, it sorta makes
and coldplay...of course...
I think they derived from their setlist, but whatever... i watched the
show from the side of the stage... wonderful as usual.. I was laughing
soooo hard when chris was like "its getting hot in here... so take
off all your clothes" i was dying..
and i love how i was standing next to the guitarist from Good Charlotte
and had like...no clue.. i was just like..whatever...
so yeah..philly recap!
I think i liked the TLA show lots better.. but the philly show was still
