de nola: I MET COLDPLAY
AT THE MIAMI AFTERSHOW PARTY!!! IT WAS AMAZING! Chris commented on my
glasses and then we spoke a lil bit after... I told them how great the
show was ( the vibe was amazing at this show). I had a wonderful time
with the guys! Epic records was there along with some important member
of UofM. They gave them some awards ( I have pics when they were receiving
them). UM... ahhh I had the best time!!!! Chris was drinking a Beck
( beer) through out the party... hehehe he's funny! well, I don't know
what else to say! THE BAND WAS GREAT THIS SHOW, THE MOOD WAS AMAZING!!!
I'm so happy i went! loyalCDP: Yo, i was at that concert too. IT WAS
AWESOME! everyone was having such a good time. They played only superstition
and i freaked out. I freaked throughout the whole thing. it was so cool.
I have to get my grubby little hands on one of those dvd's. if they
Johana: The miami show
was just brilliantly beautiful. seriously one of the best concerts ive
ever been to..... i felt tears coming down my face. that was actually
one of the first times the Convocation center @ UM was used...what great
way to use that place???
Coldplayted: Hey! i went to the concert at UM last night and
it was so amazing! The guys were all great, the energy in the crowd
was great!...it ended too soon! i loved the concert and i hope they
come back next year!!
HazelEyes: Shiver So after I've had a day to recover from my
overdose of happiness at finally seeing Coldplay here in Miami, I've
been able to admit that I have a few gripes about last night, though
they are not even directly to coldplay. 1) The Crowd. I wouldnt blame
CP if they never come back to perform here again! I had floor seats,
and though there were some Coldplay fans who were able to sway and sing
along to every song, there were a few zombies there who just stared
at the band with such disinterest, it was all i could do from walking
up to them and pointing them to the exit. IT was a mix of people who
love Coldplay, and people who seemed to have had nothing to do, and
stumbled across this thanks to their College Agenda. I blame UM for
that, for using lame ads to promote Coldplay's concert, labeling them
as a " College band" popular at " colleges across the country" " nominated
for 2 grammy's". UGH. I would haved preferred going to Orlando, I keep
hearing excellent things about the show ANd the crowd. Chris was practically
begging the crowd to sing along, and kept his cheerful, people loving
demeanor through the whole show. His jumps and romps around the stage
made me laugh and appreciate the band all much more. Especially when
he flipped it in reverse!!! LoL 2) The Opening Band. Again, I wil blame
my impatience and anxiety to see Coldplay on my current dislike for
the band. They were on for 45 minutes, that time couldve been used to
have played some more tracks from AROBTTH, like the title track and
" Green Eyes" or even oldies like " Bigger Stronger", " No more Keeping
My Feet on The Ground, even " Sparks". 3) The tshirt vendor not accepting
credit cards. I shake my fist at you!!! Either way, I would go see them
again and again, and i am curently trying to get tickets to see them
In GA. I love 'em, and hopefully they will come back and perform in
a more intimate setting, with a more appreciative crowd. I'll surely
part of the disease: The show was fine, but it didn't measure
up to the last time I saw them. That has a lot to do with it being Miami.
Miami crowds suck. I saw them in Baltimore last October and I was awestruck.
In Maryland the crowd was into it, the band was mixing it up with both
albums, covers and what-not. No one in my section (111) seemed to care.
They sat there. This guy next to me sat with his leg twitching the whole
time and it was very unnerving. From where I sat it seemed like no one
in the place was even singing with them. I've seen several shows in
Miami and, with the exception of U2's recent tour, the crowd has always
seemed "to cool for school". In Baltimore Chris had the audience swarm
the stage and it really affected the performance. From where I sat it
looked like security wouldn't even let people lean on the rail up front.
I had to lean on the woofer in Balto. and every kick of the bass drum
gave me a puff of air, but it was a fantastic show. I will say that
Coldplay concerts attract the most gorgeous women though... How could
they not play "Rush of Blood..." Its so phenomenal live. Small disappointment
And UM's arena sucks. I has house lights shining down on me for the
entire show. Might be alright for basketball, but I doubt I'll pay money
for a concert there again. And with the lackluster respinse from the
audience I doubt Coldplay will do Miami again. I wouldn't. I doubt I'd
have done an encore.
fh3: I was at the Miami show and oh my god... I cannot explain
how good it was... it was my first time seeing them live, and it was
just a spectacular flawless performance... Everything was excellent...
but I didnt really like the crowd... even though there were so many
people that knew all their songs it (being the crowd) still didnt feel
as good as Oasis did in the summer... everyone was so proper in this
one... they were all just standing in their spot with their hands tied
around them... I expected alot more energy from the crowd... I tried
jumping up and down during the "open up your eyes" in Politik, but seeing
as how I was the only one I stopped one of the best moments was the
crowd singing the end of Everythings Not Lost... The band did a wonderful
job... truely appreciated... thanks alot guys.
sye10: I just got home from the Miami concert... it was absolutely
amazing!!!! My first Coldplay concert, and I had awesome seats... I'm
really sick (and sleepy!) so my review isn't going to be too detailish,
They opened with 'Politik', sang a good amount of songs, for ex, in
NO particular order because I don't remember!: 'God Put a Smile Upon
Your Face', 'Yellow' (had so much feeling to it!! Dedicated it to us
Miami people), 'Everything's Not Lost' was AWESOME, he had EVERYONE
singing along with him, it was great.... Closed up w/ 'The Scientist'
(thank GOD, I was dying to hear this one!), then did the encore w/ 'Clocks',
'In My Place', then the grand finale... 'Trouble'.
I know I'm missing some songs but I really can barely think straight!
(I'm sick and still my friend and I insisted on hanging out by the tour
buses to catch a glimpse at the guys leaving... and it worked! So that
was fun...) So I'm glad I created a new Coldplay fan tonight (my friend),
and I just become a bigger fan myself. As soon as I got home I started
checking out their websites and registered to this one (instead of going
They absolutely ROCKED!!
TheScientistChick :I went to both the Orlando and Miami shows.
Coldplay put a smile on my face! They were both phenomenal shows.
The crowd in Orlando was a lot more intense but I think that had alot
to do with the venue. The band gave it 110% each night, though. Chris
even told tonight's audience that they did a fantastic singing job,
when that quite obviously, wasn't the case. There was a lot of fun banter
between Chris and the audience. One thing that made me laugh was when
he told the audience not to panic, even if Jeb Bush is our governor.
He also said that the band was given such a warm welcome during their
first trip to Florida that they felt like Dan Marino. I just can't get
over the energy and talent that Coldplay displays during a live show.
The songs come to life in a way that's breathtaking. It's been a long
but fabulous two days. I will post more after some sleep!
BooRadleyMIA: I also was there last night at the Miami show.
Aside from some minor problems with it being the first show at the new
UM Arena, (ex. They sold some tickets that didn't exist, to some girls
sitting next to us!) The show was simply amazing!! The setlists being
posted are fairly accurate, so I won't post my own. I thought the highlight
of the show was Chris' banter with the crowd. The Jeb Bush comment was
hilarious. Also, as they were about to start YELLOW, Chris mentioned
how this 'was the song that brought us to America, that brought us to
you'. It was almost to much to take when they started playing, Sensory
Overload!! Awesome show,, Thank You Thank You!!!!
Tinafilm: I went last night as well. It was real nice!!!! The
Jeb Bush comment was a highlight! They were just amazing! He kept saying
that this was their first time in florida, but I thought they had been
to miami before? Didn't they do some show with someone else at the bayside
amphitheatre a couple years ago or something like that? Maybe I'm just
imagining things again. I had really good seats, and hopefully got some
excellent pics, I shall find out today. Oh and I loved his funny little
dance like a little yummy leprechaun!
FireOpal: I thought the Miami show was excellent too, lots of
energy from the band and the audience was L-O-U-D! Ron Sexsmith did
a great job opening as well. I liked Chris' parting remarks to the crowd
as he thanked us for coming to see "a poxy English band" -- wot a cutie
he is. The highlight of the show for me was the gorgeous new song "Moses"
-- damn I hope they release that as a single someday. Chris introduced
it as "a song about when you meet someone really beautiful, and you're
waiting for them to call you, and then they do and life is happiness"
-- something like that. I expected him to say, "And it's called 'Gwyneth'"
LilRed: i came back from the miami show and while i thought that
the audience was a bit mellow, that coldplay put on an excellent show.
i asked the soundboard guy for the setlist and it seems like they have
one set for the tour but a choice between 2 encores
scientist275: One of the best concerts I've ever been to. I finally
got to see them. I remember when they tried to come down here at the
Hard Rock Cafe. I had tickets on my hands and the gig was cancelled.
Thankfully, they returned. And what a return! UM sucks! Our bar codes
on the tickets were not dark enough and could not be scanned. Had to
come down to customer service only to be told to go up and try again.
The staff on the gig were so uptight. They would not let us rush up
front to the stage. What harm is that gonna cause? Even when I was taking
pics, this guy comes up to me and says: "No pictures!!" Besides that,
the gig was amazing!
Briggs: coldplay is my favorite band, ever since the first time
i heard their music, i was in love. fortunatly, my best friend also
feels the same way for the band, and lastnight at the miami show, we
bonded more than ever. we cried together, laughed together, and danced
our happy little butts off i would have to say, the show was one of
the best i have ever been a part of. i have never gotten such a vibe
from a concert ever in my life, the fans showed appreciation for the
band and one another. i am on a natural high, and cant come down (not
that i want to).... Thank you to the band, for making my night a truly
jericho_54: I thought the Miami concert was awesome...the band
had great energy... It was the first time I saw Coldplay live...Man!
Chris is a great performer. The lights and video panels (helping people
like me who were stuck in the back see) were unbelievable.
Rockishfemme: COLDPLAY WAS THE BEST THING EVER!!! TOO BAD THEY
DIDN'T PLAY 'RUSH OF BLOOD TO THE HEAD". ANYHOW, THE CONCERT WAS AWESOME,
I HATED THE FACT THAT MOST OF THE "COLLEGE" KIDS WEREN'T REALLY GETTING
INTO IT, AND SOME OF THE THE GIRLS DRESSED EXTREMELY SLUTTY! BESIDES
FROM THAT IT WAS THE BEST CONCERT I'VE EVER SEEN, THEY ROCKED SO HARD,
THAT CHRIS HAS THE GREATEST STAGE PRESENCE EVER! I LOVE WHEN THEY PERFORMED
"YELLOW" AND "THE SCIENTIST" AND "A WARNING SIGN" AND "IN MY PLACE";
IN OTHER WORDS I LOVED EVERY SINGLE MOMENT OF THIS CONCERT. I WAS SO
HAPPY AND EXCITED, I JUMPED AND I SCREAMED EVERY SINGLE LYRIC.
I shiver: hey my friend Sarah wrote a small review of this show...here
it is.. They began by thanking everyone for coming and started "Politik".
The lights were CRAZY blue and strobe-like and Chris was flying around
on his seat. The venue at U.M. was JUST built and Chris commented on
that they were the first band to ever perform there. They played "Shiver".
Before "Don't Panic" he said that this song was for anyone who had Jeb
Bush as a governer. Hahahahah... Ummmm and also they played "Moses"
and Chris went on about how it was new and that he wrote it about when
you meet someone beautiful and you want them to call you and you're
waiting and waiting and finally they do, but this was written about
the uncertainty part. And before "Yellow" he said it was a song about
the most beautiful girl that ever lived.
Barbiesunrise: WOW! I saw their show in Miami the other night
(first time to see Coldplay live) and was completely blown away! What
a great performance! I was also given some passes, so I got to meet
the band during the aftershow "meet n' greet" and asked them to autograph
my pass. I also got a photo with the band. I only spoke to them for
a brief moment. I told them that I was disappointed as I had something
else for them to sign, but had left it in the car, and asked if they
could just sign the pass itself? Will replied, "oh that's okay - signing
the pass is fine"... and I told Guy that I enjoyed the show and he thanked
me. They were very pleasant, which was really nice. I used to work in
the music industry here in South Florida (hence, how I came about getting
to go backstage) and trust me when I say, some of the artists that I've
worked with in the past or have met in that setting were not at all
nice people. But these guys seemed very sweet, very polite....
Christina Miafocus: just got back from the concert and i must
say it was the best i have seen. them boys really now how to put on
a show. makes up for driving all the way to atlanta and having a no
show. cant wait til there next cd comes out, hopefully there will be
another one, and hopefully they come to miami again. good job boys
