rush of blood to the head
One I love
God put a smile upon your face
Everything's not lost
Your World Turned Upside down
In my place
Eline: I saw Coldplay
on Werchter and they were sooooo great, I think they were the best of
the whole program!!
Martinus: What I find so amazing about Coldplay is that after just 2
(full) albums they can already play a set of Best Of songs, something
bands like even R.E.M. need like 2 decades for...
Mezzanine: I loved cp @ werchter but other bands were gr8 too, 4 me feeder, stereophonics and radiohead were excellent but no-one had the character like chris, GOD BLESS YOU!!!
Leentje: yesterday i saw
coldplay at the festival rock werchter in belgium, and it was really
great, they are the best!i really liked it when chris spoke the dutsh
words, he did really well!
pat_ze_pat: Yes Chris spoke
both Flemish and French (a little) and much in English... But didn't
get everythings he said!
m@t: It was the third time I saw them and this was by far the best of the three. In fact, it blew the other two away. I never thought I'd say this, but coldplay is way better in front of large crowds. Strange. I saw them in Lille last time and that was a relatively small venue. But this was ten times better. Chris Martin was joking. He did a part of "insane in the brain" (Cypress Hill) at the beginning of Amsterdam. And when there was a technical problem before "everything's not lost" he said just like someone who tries to hypnotise you "just imagine ... how good this next song is gonna be ... just imagine ..." hilarious. And before trouble "this song is what the Belgian chocolate crisis 1812 must have been like ... If there was one". It really was a great gig (maybe the best ever I've seen). He was in better spirits than ever, Climbing on the amplifiers, walking through the crowd and stuff. And everyone agreed this was by far the best gig of the festival. He also made tons of REM references (REM did the same thing), but coldplay blew REM away, honestly. It was so good there wasn't a difference in crowd interaction between yellow or GPASUYF, there was clapping and singing and juming and whatever during EVERY song. Usually, they only get the crow on their feet when yellow starts. Now the atmosphere was good from the opening bars of politik.
Stonybono: yesterday i was
in werchter 2. And Oh my god what a band...
Aapje: Now, I'm a little
bit biased seeing I have been a Coldplay fan for several years, but
the gig was truly amazing. Yesterday they played a gig of Coldplay of
3 years ago on MTVe, and you really could see how greatly they have
evolved. Chris Martin overclassed Michael Stipe in every way. The jokes
put a smile upon my face, but last year at Werchter he already came
up with "I pity the man who couldn't use that tonight" when
he saw a condom flying by. So we are kind of used to that :-)
Daspop: I could write a book full of superlatives
about the werchter-gig. The only problem is that everything has already
been said: Werchter was heaven on earth for one hour and half. The fact
that you can make 50.000 (or even more) people sing and scream and jump
means that you're just the best. As simple as can be.
