Scientist synopsis: Gwen's mother's birthday sing-along? Wow that's
love! Also on a lighter note Chris gets rushed by a fan during the last
Just posting to thank Coldplay for an amazing concert last night. Holding the show in the Savvis Concert Club made it so intimate, and I don't think there was a bad seat to be found. I was so ecstatic when I found out that not only was my favorite band touring, but they'd included St Louis! The band was incredibly energetic--sometimes I thought they were more excited to play for us then we were to see them! Everything was beautiful--particularly "Warning Sign." That's my favorite song from the new album, and I wasn't sure that it would work well in a concert setting, but it was the best part of the show (okay, well, everything was the best part...it's Coldplay!) Also enjoyed Chris' sense of humor, making fun of Justin Timberlake and Mariah Carey and busting out with "It's getting hot in here" (this IS Nellyville!). Anyways, I could go on forever. Long story short, I cannot wait to see them again, and it hasn't even been 24 hours yet!
I was very inspired by the concert and the band in so many ways. Especially the energy level and the optimism. Things that will last with me for some time to come. And the straight shot to watch W.C. play drums was a bonus.
It has been only 24 hours, and I want to see them again.!!! I wish them all of the success in the world.
A fan for Life! thank you COLDPLAY!!!!!!
The show last night in St. Louis at the Savvis Center was very impressive! Ron Sexsmith said that since he's from Canada, it's very comfortable to be playing a concert at a hockey arena. His songs were very mellow and pleasant, and got the night off to a nice start.
Now, onto Coldplay...
I was very satisfied with the setlist, but I would have
loved to hear "Sparks", "A Rush of Blood to the Head", "Green Eyes", and
"Easy To Please". At the end of Trouble, Chris sang, "they spun a web
for..." and then the music completely stopped, and Chris smiled and said,
"You know, I think that since we haven't really been properly introduced
yet, it might be nice if you could all sing along with me here. It goes
'They spun a web for me', and don't worry if you can't hit that note,
I'll help you. This will be the greatest effort of the English and the
Americans since... Fleetwood Mac (laughs). OK, are you ready?" And after
we sang, Chris said, "This is definitely going to be a great concert".
Yes, the concert was great.
To correct someone below that said there was a woman who jumped on stage to hug Chris, I was sitting about 5 rows above the person that did it and it was actually a man. I thought it was a woman, too, until they turned the lights on and I saw him high-fiving his friends. Odd? Yes, Chris, looked a little frightened. I think it is such a shame that some people have to try to ruin a good thing. Hopefully Coldplay isn't too frightened to come back to Savvis to play. Luckily, I am not from St. Louis, so there are plenty of surrounding cities they could come back to.
Was he joking about the "happy birthday" to the girlfriend's mother??? I thought he was serious....
