The_Lost_Gallagher: What a show...Coldplay
is such an amazing band to see live. I loved every minute of it. The light
show during the concert even suprised me. Great encore ( 3 songs )...which
only added more fuel to the crowd. The show was amazing...i'm gonna go
to sleep a very happy boy.
Loved it, amazing show. They also played an unreleased song if I'm not
mistaken. (Endless it was on one of there 2 cd's before Parachuets and
AROBTTH) The lyrics went something like "You broke your self in 2,
oh what you gunna do/ I don't know why I am here, oh why don't you go
and cry." Those are just the lyrics that for no particular reason
stuck out at me. The song sounded like a mix between Daylight and The
Scientist (IMO) but it was much more dynamic then either of those 2 songs.
Anyway, wicked show last night. Plus the played "One I Love"
so I'm quite happy with that !
JessLovesColdplay: I got to the venue
around 2 pm. There was already a lineup except it was outside which is
different from the concerts that I normally go to at The Shaw. I could
go on about how security were absolutely fucking useless and c.unted up
everything by allowing people from the back of the line to bud. Whatever,
Iím not bitter. *grits teeth*
So my friend and I wandered around the Shaw. We ate our lunch outside
away from the lineup and saw the tour buses. I had my eye out for The
Music and Coldplay. No such luck. So we went back to the lineup. My friend
and I were sitting on the stairs when I saw Adam from The Music walking
up the stairs towards me with his security guard. I had to seize this
opportunity. I looked at him and said ĎExcuse me. Hi, Iím such a big fan
of yours. Iím so glad you were able to come to Edmonton. I love your music.
I was wondering if you could sign my CD?í to which he smiled and replied
yes. He asked if I had a Sharpie. I gave him my CD and my Super Sharpie.
He took one look at it and went Ďwhoa! Look at the size of this thing!í.
He handed back my CD and I said ĎThank you so much. Enjoy the show.í I
was such a nerd around him but he was so nice and gracious. It was weird
how he kept bowing to me when I gave him the compliments. How cute! After
that, tons of girls rushed up to me and asked me what happened and who
that was. Then later I met Robert and Phil from The Music out on the terrace.
They were doing an interview so I waited until they were done. I was once
again my nerdy self. I said ĎHi, Iím Jessica. Itís so nice to meet you.
You guys rock!í and they introduced themselves which was really cute and
proper of them to do. Then I said ĎI already met Adam earlier and basically
babbled in front of him so really, I donít know what to say. Thank you
for coming here! Um, could you please sign my CD please?í They giggled
and said 'yes'. I gave Robert my Super Sharpie and his eyes widened. I
said ĎItís a Super Sharpie. Yeah, itís pretty big, eh?í then he sniffed
it and said ĎYeah, super strong too!í I also got a picture with them which
was great. I went back to the lineup and ate the second half my lunch
on terrace and saw them again except they were down below so I waved.
They waved back. It was cool. Yeah, I know... Iím a nerd.
EDIT: I think I may have said something about their music being 'mindblowing'
to Adam. I should never be allowed around famous people.
So because security was totally useless, I ended up at the far left of
the stage. I basically had to watch the show with my neck at a 90 degree
angle to the left. I think I managed to get some decent pics. Iíll develop
them tomorrow and share them with you all.
Eisley really impressed me. Theyíre so young! I love the lead singerís
The Music blew my socks off! I had heard Rob was really into his set but
this far surpassed my expectations. They were so good live.
Now onto Coldplay. I was a Coldplay virgin (as Mel put it ) up until this
moment. When they came on, it just felt so surreal. Finally! After 3 years
of liking this band, they finally make an appearance in my hometown. I
still canít believe that I finally got to see them live.
I took a sense of
pride in being the only person to know the words to Poor Me. I was right
by the speaker so the sound was pretty strong. Hmmm... what else? Oh yeah,
I may or may not have shed a tear during Amsterdam. Everything just hit
me during that song. Yes, I was here finally seeing Coldplay live. What
a special moment. Yes, I am going to have dinner with them in 20 days.
What a special moment that will be. No one has any idea what this band
means to me. Not even my closest friends and they have some idea but thatís
just the tip of the iceberg. I think my journey with them is almost complete.
What better way to end it than on a high note. Itís late. I donít know
what Iím talking about anymore. I think Iíll edit tomorrow. Goodnight!
Chukman: hehe that was an
amazing show last night!!!!!
i was kinda disapointed with the crowd... seem like too many people who'd
one single and bought a ticket. i dunno, i was goin apeshit and didn't
give a damn!
hehe but ya hte music were great!!!!! really energetic!
and coldplay! hehe amazing!! ya i think if the broadcast didn't happen,
i bet the would've started later and played a couple more songs. hehe
but ahhh was still an amazing show!!!
Brewerbabe: I'm glad everyone
who went last night had an amazing time. It was so good! Like Jess I was
a Coldplay virgin, now I can't wait to see them again.
The opening bands were both very good, definately check out Eisley if
you get the chance.
I'm hoping the guy I was with got some good pics, because I'm kicking
myself now for not bringing my camera. Really security was a joke because
they didn't check for anything.
Also I got to meet Guy Berryman that afternoon. It was really quite suprising
as I didn't think anyone from Coldplay would be out and about, but there
he was shopping at the HMV in Edmonton Centre. I was such a geek though,
the only thing I could think to say was that " I really like your
band". But he was sweet and said he hoped I would enjoy the show.
But my first experience of Coldplay was great, and I was wish I could
go see them again tonight in Calgary.
