Booo..that would've been epic :disappointed:

Ok seriously you need to come with me to Dublin (and hopefully Belfast) cause my stalking mood will be at its best and altough a friend of mine will follow me everywhere I need the support of the ones and only Guy stalker girls :cool:

Waiting for the review now, I bet even going to the backstage has been a great experience, I'm so happy for you girls, at least you got to meet Chris and you got to hear Glass of Water for the first time :kiss:

the review starts here:
Day 2:
4 hours of sleep is NOT enough… but hey were seeing coldplay again who cares!!!
Left my house around 9 and brought some more supplies: bubble wrap to sit on and a cardboard box to makes signs from.. more markers and more balloons (for Reno heehee)
We arrived at the venue around 10:30 only 3 people there YEAH we got ourselves a nice spot like Pete mentioned against the glass doors (we didn’t bring the airbed though) tried to call Fryske Famke.. but she didn’t answer… not worried though for some reason I trusted her.. (must have been the way she told me: maybe I can help hee hee I loved that) so were actually quite comfy and enjoyed ourselves by making signs out of the box: one for reno: it said: hey reno on one side, and the flip side said: How you doin’? :wink3:
One big one for me:
look at the stars,
look how WE shine for you
And I got 2 small ones on the other side: (cooky pay attention)
Thump a Bass
Hump the bassplayer
(yes that means you GUY)
The flip side said:
Just kiddin’
now take your shirt
OFF!
We wre colouring for quite some time, and enjoying soundcheck! :stunned: soundcheck!?!?!?! Weeee that usually means good news! We heard LIT and VH several times but we didn’t mind
then all of a sudden a girl was in front of us and said HI!
It took a minute for me took click, but then I realized it was Fryske Famke!! Weee (that’s not her name but I don’t wanna out her)
Now this is the part where I say: THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU I’ll be forever thankfull!
She is just too sweet! Off course we needed to pay her and she wouldn’t accept the fact that we wanted to give her some more money than the original price… she finally gave in because she just didn’t have change we got some Pizza and had a little pizza party hee hee, CHavi and I were sitting with our back against the glass and Fryske Famke across from us when out of nowhere she said:
Hey that Oxfam guy is getting ready, and Chavi and I almost choked on our pizza! We turned around and saw Pete again weeeeeeee! We knocked on the window but he didn’t hear.. so we wrote him a sign that said: Hey Pete! And held it up, then he saw us and was like: heyyyy you made it! (Without words) and he gave us a wave… then we wrote flip side saying: how are you? He didn’t see or didn’t want to… I think maybe we embarrassed him a bit…
We so now we had something to look out for, for a bit :blush:.. then Lauren texted us Pete mentioned us :smug: weeeeeee! :nice: he turned up again and we made him a sign that said thanks for the blog… hoping he would see it, but by now we had to move away from the door, and security put up some fences to create a line… that didn’t really go in a fair way but we didn’t lose our first spot.. we lost Pete again  then all of a sudden he was outside talking on the phone.. when he hung up we called his name and he saw us, we thanked him in person for writing the blog, and wished him luck getting signatures for Oxfam and he went inside, he told us to have fun at the show…
It was about 5 and I went to the car to put our unnecessary stuff in, I just closed the door when I heard soundcheck again this time much louder so I stood at the door, and at first I thought it was Albert hammond jr. nbut then I recognized Chris’ voice but they were playing a song I’d never heard before… I was bouncing and wanted to run or call chavi But I made a recording on my phone, it’s really soft.. but still cewllll I was the first to hear glass of water EVERRRRR or at least we assumed that it was… the song ended and I practically ran to Chavi again WEEEEEEEEEEEEE

I'm way too lazy to type long stories, but it was again a great concert, I was standing right in front of Johnny (and that annoying camera guy so I couldn't see Chris), got some nice pics and vids and his bottle of water :P

Really awesome they played Glass of Water!!

Btw, does anyone knows what that song is Chris played with that shirt one is head? It's piano only (not Postcards).

The three Coldplay days have come to an end... it was really oen-ge-lo-fe-lijk!

18.15 Security came outside and to stand in front of us… I asked if they were going to check our bags and he said yes.. I asked the man to do it now so he wouldn’t have to when the door openend and they did :nice:
Pete showed up near our door and gave us a wave.. maybe whishing us goodluck? :nice:
18.28(or something) the doors were openend, but we weren’t allowed to go in yet, yet everybody started pushing and one of the lines broke and that line started running in, it was very unfair cause those were people that arrived at like 15.00 I almost cried and begged the security guard to let us through, finally he did and Chavi ran in first, I was right behind her, security is really harsh in Antwerp, if you run they’ll grab you and hold you.. they didn’t grab me but I got stuck behind a couple that did… lucky for me chavi got the right spot: centre Right GUY SIDE my dream come true!there was like a 10 centimeter gap for me left at the fence and people were really pushing the atmosphere was not good! The dude that was centre front had been a bit behind us in line.. how did he manage to get there before us?! Not fair! Also a lot of people that arrived late were first, the guy behind me came at 16.00 he told me… he was okay though, after a while the pushing stopped and I got some space to breathe, but were were unable to sit down cause people were too close! Allthat didn’t matter.. we were on GUY SIDE WEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE EEEE (sorry about that)
Now we wait… talked to some people… talked to frank… forgot his screename again (sorry bout that)
He handed out printed smiley faces to hold up during GPASUYF, but we told him it would be played at the b-stage so probably wouldn’t be noticed, and decided to just hold it up during both songs
Told people about our adventure the previous night
19.15 albert Hammond started… EARLY weeeee!
We held up the sign for reno and waved some balloons for him he saw us and smiled theehee!
Albert seemed more into it then yesterday and talked more.. saying how it was the last concert and all, and how he had enjoyed it!
Pretty good gig from them as well, couple of smiles from reno it was fun! When they the other guitarist threw some guitar picks our direction, but again missed them (they fell on the floor but we couldn’t see where) we were looking for them and clapping also when a raodie came directly too us with 2 setlists and handed them over, like he had been ordered to do that (or I’d like to think so) anyway it was nice, then chavi said: too bad a bout the guitar pick though, and then she noticed it! It was in front of the fence and out of our reach wee! We hailed someone from security and he gave it too us cewlll!

Again waiting for coldplay now.. even more excited and all the while Chavi and I had so much fun, I haven’t mentioned this btw but we did have an awesome time together! I miss her:bigcry:!!!!

He also looked at me during Lost soundcheck and 42 at that show!

Clocks rocked again! This time I took a lot of time to take pics of Guy cause he was rockin and Chris would be at his piano so I wouldn’t miss any of that action!! They turned out pretty gooddd!!
http://i397.photobucket.com/albums/pp56/carlaatje84/live/antwerp/Carla/DSC01294.jpg
In my place! ramp of love action again… Chavi and I both filmed and I think we should put our video’s side by side and play them at the same time.. only I had to pause mine in the middle so try to be a fast clicker! But chavi needs to upload first so a little patience ( I know I ask a lot)
Speed of sound… we danced danced danced and waved our hands like we were floating (kinda like an airplane) I think guy noticed… but you know I’m delusional!
Cemtries of london
Chris welcomed everybody and said some things in Dutch (or Flemish same thing) he said something about seeing familiar faces and looked at us again weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee! But I dunno if you can really hear it this is my video:
YouTube - Coldplay antwerp 04-10-08 cemetries of london

Strawberry swing wee such a happy happy song on such a perfect perfect day! Again guy with the clapping… oh well….
Talk and god put a smile upon your face, sounded great again! A lot of people got out the smiley faces and it was fun! Plus great ass view this time… (sorry but I’m like that) I call my sister during talk cause she likes it!
YouTube - QColdplay antwerp 04-10-08 b-stage
the hardest part/postcards aww sweet song… turned around again (I just can’t help myself… ) now I understand when chavi said guy might have been a bit freaked out… heehee
Viva la vida: yeah indeed! Always love will on the drums and I like that he gets so close to us! Weeee the ooohing was great! I think I held my sign up for hump the bassplayer… I felt like Guy was really tired not that it affect is playing but I wanted to cheer him up! I’m not sure if he read it though.. I’d like to think so!
Lost… Drums again… no words really… so close… oooh what the heck *THUD* :dead:
and if I put my sign up during viva then this is where I flipped it…! The security guard laughed so hard!
The scientist/death will never conquer… we were the first to turn around again I love that! Chris held that story about us being ongeloofelijk! Such cuteness he said it’s his new favorite word then off course ths scientist was amazing again, and he said such sweet things about will and southhampton before death will never conquer… Chavi and I blew up our yellow balloons and threw them in the audience.. then during the talk remix we started the cell phones again and this time everybody did it! Yayy we started something! Weeeeee!
Politik.. I held up my look at the stars sign for the first time cause it has lots of lights maybe guy looked over.. I know I;’m such a dreamer
Lovers in japan… Just ENJOYYYYYYYYYYYYYY :nice:
Death and all his friends ooh noo nearly the end of our last viva la vida tour concert booooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo :bigcry: the song is really great though… I appreciated it even more now that I’ve heard it the second time!
Galss of water: well just kill me now! I yelled my head off! I loved it soo much! I can’t describe it… and Chavi get’s all the scoops!!!! Now there’s a scoop for ya! Video:
YouTube - Coldplay antwerp 04-10-08 new song glass of water
the ongeloofelijk thing was AWESOME! For those who don’t know: somebody held up a sign that said: coldplay = ongeloofelijk(incredible) when Chris said how the fuck did you do that?!!?
I can’t wait for the EP now… I already was in heaven when I heard LIT II was gonna be on it!
Yellow… there’s my sign again! And the smiley face… all was awesome! Just look at the video in the end… I’m holding up my sign and waving Bye while chavi is filming and chris waves back at me WEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE E
YouTube - coldplay antwerp 04-10-08 goodbye
No picks or sticks today..  but that’s okay! We got the setlist again at the end.. don’t even remember how that went.. ask chavi!

Now it really is over: stalkers UNLEASHED!!!! Mission sexyman is on! Chavi is getting butterflies while I’m trying to get a personal setlist… some girl held up a sign that said : setlist please! (she did that after albert too) and yelled to one of the roadies.. he went to look for one and she was the only one that got something, but I think it wasn’t a personal one… it had no tape and it was quite neat… so we left and we wer off to the back entrance………… dun dun dunnnnnnnn

A 5* Review :D

Coldplay, Sportpaleis Antwerpen

Torenhoge verwachtingen inlossen, het is iets waar alleen de heel grote toe in staat zijn. Na het angstwekkend perfecte concert in Antwerpen, is er maar één conclusie: Coldplay is groots, heel groots. Klonk het voorprogramma met Albert Hammond Junior – denk aan flarden van The Kooks of zelfs Arctic Monkeys – nog behoorlijk goed, dan blies Coldplay iedereen met gemak weg.

Is er iets waar Coldplay niet mee weg komt? Zaterdagavond alvast niet. De sfeer er in brengen met een dope hiphopsong en erna stijlvolle klassieke muziek op het publiek loslaten, Coldplay slaagt erin. Een Regi'tje doen door in songs als 'Talk' en 'God put a smile upon your face' een sterke elektronische basdrum verwerken, Coldplay probeert het en het werkt zowaar! Coldplay in da club, hell yeah!

Hoogtepunten? Te veel om op te noemen – het concert was een aaneenrijging van orgelpunten – maar we trachten er toch een paar op te sommen. Met 'The hardest part' solo aan de piano bewees Chris Martin niet die kwijler te zijn, maar een oersterke zanger die het Sportpaleis tot de nok begeestert. Voorts waren de muzikale orgasmen ontelbaar tijdens klassiekers als 'Clocks', 'In my place', 'Politik' en 'Yellow'. 'Fix you' zorgde voor een eerste karaokemoment, maar dan moest 'Viva la vida' nog komen. Het – laat ons eerlijk zijn – afgezaagde 'Seven nation army'-ohoh’en is voorgoed verleden tijd, vanaf nu is er het 'Viva la vida'-ohoh’en. Deal?

Een übergelukkig Sportpaleis kreeg er maar niet genoeg van en werd zowaar nog op een wereldprimeur getrakteerd. 'Glass of water' – vers van de pers – was een voorsmaakje van nieuw materiaal dat binnenkort in de winkel ligt. En als het klinkt zoals dat sterk rockende nummer, wordt beter doen dan 'Viva la vida' a piece of cake. Coldplay wordt al langer vergeleken met U2 en er wordt zelfs geroepen dat Chris Martin en co beter zijn dan Bono en de zijnen. Op hun concert afgaande zijn we echter geneigd niet eens meer te vergelijken. Hoe U2, wat U2, waar U2? Coldplay is Coldplay!

about the setlist we got, we were looking for our banners and putting them in your bag when the cameraman who was actually pretty far from us, directly went to us and gave it to US ! I wonder why because he could've given it to someone closer just in front of him, but NO he went to the center and gave it to US ! how lucky are we ? :D

maybe I should post a pic of it, setlist with 'Glass of water (possibly AFTER Yellow)' written on it. or maybe you already did Carla ? :uhoh:

ooh I havent said anything yet about Glass of water ! OMG !!!!!!!!!!!!!! it was AMAZING ! :heart:

Coldplay, Antwerp Sportpaleis

Tower High expectations, it's something that only the very large so capable. After the frightening perfect concert in Antwerp, there is only one conclusion: Coldplay is big, very big. Sounded for the program with Albert Hammond Junior - think of snatches of The Kooks or even Arctic Monkeys - still pretty good, then blew away Coldplay anyone with ease.

Is there something that Coldplay will not get away with? At least not Saturday night. The atmosphere in there with a dope hip-hop song and afterwards stylish classical music on the public release, Coldplay manages. A Regi'tje do in songs like 'Talk' and 'God put a smile upon your face' strong basdrum electronic processing, Coldplay trying it and actually it works! Coldplay in da club, hell yeah!

Highlights? Too many to mention - the concert was an organ of aaneenrijging points - but we still try to enumerate a few. With "The hardest part 'solo at the piano proved Chris Martin not to be slobbery, but a strong singer who Sportpaleis begeestert to the rafters. Furthermore, the musical orgasms during countless classics as "Clocks", "In my place," "Politik" and "Yellow". "Fix You" led to a first karaoke moment, but then had to "Viva la vida" yet to come. The - let us be frank - humdrum 'Seven Nation ohoh'en-army' is well past time, from now on there is the' Viva la vida'-ohoh'en. Deal?

A happy at Sportpaleis but there was not enough and was actually still a world first treated. "Glass of Water '- fresh from the press - was a foretaste of new material soon in the store is located. And if it sounds as strong rocking song, is doing better than 'Viva la vida "a piece of cake. Coldplay is longer compared with U2 and there is even called that Chris Martin and co better than Bono and his friends. At their previous concert, however, we are inclined not even compare. How U2, what U2, where U2? Coldplay is Coldplay!

We ran between the people and got out as fast as we could…. Went to the back but were kinda of disappointed.. we couldn’t find the vans anywhere!!! :bigcry: we hung around the tour busses for a bit but the area was much more closed off than Rotterdam, we wanted to at least see pete or reno again but mostly wanted to see ANYBODY from coldplay off course… Our feelings told us they’d left which figures.. last concert they were going home.. and like I said Guy seemed very tired, they probably did a runner… soo bummer… :P

We went back into the venue.. got us some drinks, tried to get a tour book bu t they were sold out… looked for Pete.. couldn’t find him all in all we were just about done… we sat outside to cool off, but then we were starting to get cold and thinking about going home.. we started walking to my car, but it was still pretty busy at the lot, and I said to chavi I’d rather have another look near the busses then be stuck in traffic here, she agreed and we went to the back AGAIN..
we passed a door that said back stage lounge…. We’de passed it before but there had been security. And suddenly we noticed something!
A ping pong table! THE pingpong table!!!! We neeeeeedded a picture :
http://i397.photobucket.com/albums/pp56/carlaatje84/live/antwerp/Carla/DSC01342.jpg

Then suddenly someone came out and we stopped… she tried to open a door but broke the handle… it was funny, then she used another door and as she came out I said: you don’t know your own strength.. she laughed but was a bit embarresed, and walked away quite fast… leaving the door open

What? Open? Really? Should we go in? did we wanna be those girls?

We hesitated and then didn’t do it… so we kept walking to the busses again….
still nothing interesting… there was a hummer there and a man we met in line that morning said that security told him they arrived in a hummer before 10 AM… it seemed highly unlikely too us, since they’d been using the same german Mercedes vans for the entire European tour so why take a hummer now? And arriving before 10 seemed early to us too.. now it started raining and we were cold and tired so we started walking back…


passed the backstage lounge again… the door was still open… Chavi surprised me By just walking in and I hesitated at first but then thought ohhh what the heck the show is over anyway, and snuck in as well… we passed the curtain and were in awe of the ping pong table! Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee

we hugged it and it was glad to take a picture with us… not all ping pong tables would have been that nice… we even smelled it :embarrassed: to see if it smelled like Will (we can compare it to the drumstick) I think it did!
http://i397.photobucket.com/albums/pp56/carlaatje84/live/antwerp/Carla/DSC01343.jpg
http://i397.photobucket.com/albums/pp56/carlaatje84/live/antwerp/Carla/DSC01344.jpg
http://i397.photobucket.com/albums/pp56/carlaatje84/live/antwerp/Carla/DSC01345.jpg

Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee! So now we figured… we’re inside already let’s look around… there was one door that said.. no exit, and a big set of stairs so we went up… there was a bar there and I though I started filming us… unfortunaly I didn’t press the button well enough :(but ooh well memories!
Look at chavi and the Elton john pic weeee!!!!
http://i397.photobucket.com/albums/pp56/carlaatje84/live/antwerp/Carla/DSC01347.jpg
So off course we were trying to find the dressing room.. nothing there so we went up higher.. but it was a dead end (stupid venue).. disappointed we left the area said goodbye to our new friend the table and started walking to my car again..

we were just talking about how it would have been nice to see Pete again, and were bummed that we didn’t even get to see him or reno! :( when we saw a man walk in opposite direction inside the venue (there was a hall way with glass doors) Chavi yelled it’s pete! And I said is it him?! And she said yes so I ran to the door and knocked on it drawing his attention, he turned and seemed happily surprised he saw us again!

I was laughing and said : we’re not stalking you, I swear to god it’s a coincidence were not stalking you! And he laughed, we asked if he had been succesfull with the signatures and he said they got a lot, they also sold(?) chocolate bars.. he opened the box.. He said he wanted to give us some for being so dedicated and looked for an opening to pass us some, but there wasn’t any and the doors were locked..

I made some drama and went : NOOOOOOOOOOOOoo you can’t show us the chocolate and then not give it!!!! WHyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyy
He laughed and said well I want to but I can’t and then :idea2: I rememberd the backstage lounge door! And said: there’s a door open over there we could go there!

And he said okay meet me there! So we walked up there and Pete met us there, at first I meant to wait neatly at the door, but then I noticed a bin and I wanted to throw away my bottle so I just did, and then Chavi followed me in and said: uhhmmm I don’t think we’re allowed in here :lol:
We talked a bit.. (chavi what did we say? We had fun I remember that) and we thanked him, then a couple of Oxfam volunteers came out and they said by to Pete and he said : Hey guys these are the girls I met yesterday I told you about them! I was like :stunned: you’ve told them about us? That’s so nice! But I’m kind of embarrassed… well servers me right cause we embarrassed you a bit didn’t we…

And Pete said oooh noo don’t be embarrassed…. And yeah I was a little hehehe… then some security guy came up to us and said looking at me and chavi(in dutch) personell wasn’t allowed to go out through that door I laughed and said we don’t even work here :lipsrsealed: Pete and Chavi didn’t have fuckall Idea what was going on and and the other volunteers tried to make it okay by saying just this once it’s okay I explained to Pete, and said to the others just go run for your lives :lol: Pete tried to calm the guard saying he was letting them out but he was staying in, the guard kept replying in dutch it was really funny, but we figured we weren’t allowed back there so we should go, we were already outside but still saying bye to Pete and then I remembered we should ask for his email so we could send him his first fan picture! Awww so I just said:ooh we wanna send you that picture we took yesterday and he said: I’ll give you my email! Just need something to write on.. chavi was carrying our bag so I turned to her and said you have a pen.. she said: I do? And pete said something like.. you’re the fans you’re supposed to have a pen! I said yeah I know alllllll about that :bigcry: (remembers guy incident at brixton) it was okay he found a pen and ripped a pieeof the boxe of chocolate and wrote down his email… some more people came out and said we needed to close the door, Pete said we’ll be gone in a sec I’m going that way and he pointed at our friend the Ping Pong table… I said oooh booo you’re going to the funside… we’re just going home :( we were rushed so we said goodbye and thanked hima gain for being SSOOOOO Nice! And we got in my car and rove off into the sunset (not really it was rainy and dark)


Chavi said things too I just can't remeber them properly so just add them?

Chavi
05-10-2008, 10:17 PM
'I swear we're not stalking you' :lol: Priceless moment !
You also asked him if we were his first groupies and he blushed and laughed ! Poor him, he was so embarassed !
and when he was looking for a pen, he said something like 'I know I know I'm no Guy Berryman' .. how the fuck did he know we were only looking for Guy ? is it THAT obvious ? :uhoh: :P
I cant remember what I said.. I was embarassed too Haha! I think I tried to convince the security guy that we were working for Oxfam as well but took our Oxfam shirts already.. I said I didnt like coffee chocolate bars.. :uhoh: how rude ! but no one heard me so it's good :lol: we told him we met Chris as well and he was happy for us :nice:

Right the guy berryman thing was very CUTE... I remeber I said: well you aren't but really.. you shouldn't compare yourself to him

and I didn't hear you say the coffee thing! but you said it again in the car...

yeah I cant believe you guys started talking about fashion :thinking: :lol:
OOOOOH ! he also said that Lyon was one of the highlights of the entire tour (so did Reno from the Albert Hammond Jr band, and I think the Roadie who came to talk to us said it too..) ! I asked him about Italy, and he said 'yeah it was great, especially Milan'. He added Toronto to the list of his greatest moments. Carla you also asked him about his favorite moments that he tries not to miss during the show. He said The Hardest part and Lost I think.. and Viva la vida too, i'm not sure.

Lauve
05-10-2008, 10:34 PM

05-10-2008, 10:52 PM
oh yeah, that's right :nice: thanks Lauren!

okay, not a review but I'm just telling you how the stalking thing all started..
A few months ago (I think) Carla and I thought about going to a show together.. we thought about Strasbourg, Rotterdam (because we were going) and Antwerp (because it's located between the two.. Haha, not really!!). And so she couldnt make it to Strasbourg unfortunately and we didnt find any tix for Antwerp nor Rotterdam for me.
Then on TUESDAY 30th, Frysk Famke posted a link for that Extra video in which Chris is and says : 'maybe I can help'.. :stunned: She pmed me telling me she had two tickets available for Antwerp ! OMG ! it's in 4 days ! what should I do ??? OMG ! then later that day, Carla texted me 'OMG Frysk Famke has 2 tix for Antwerp, what do we do?'... i got online and she said to me she also had a spare ticket for Rotterdam on Friday ! OMG ! LONG HESITATION .... two hours later maybe, my train tix were booked ! :stunned: it went so FAST ! and bam I was on a train to Rotterdam on Friday morning !

NEVER done anything that crazy in my life ! and I'll never regret it ! :nice:

I just need to add : Frysk Famke, you're my HERO ! :heart: :heart:

Cris_Santos

something very amazing happened during yellow!
off course I held up my sign saying: look at the starts look how WE shine for YOU, and at the end Chavi and I sang this bit and pointed at Guy together, singing it to him, I am sure he saw us here he looked at us for 10 seconds at least (WOW:lol: ) maybe he read the sign but he saw us sing to him... we sang to him and he saw it WEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE

OMG I think I saw you, Carla and Chavi in the backstage lounge!( see later on in my post)

As you can see, I'm not a very active member, but I read this forum almost every day, SO:

it was my 1st time seeing them live and I absolutely wanted to be there( I have been a fan for 5 years) front row, but we had seats( same price like standing-tickets) so we tried get to the centre area( standing-places) but we weren't allowed to with our tickets( I knew there wasn't much kope for that)
When we saw our places in the area I was quite dissapointed, we were seated quite far away from the stage. Then Albert Hammond Jr. started, I liked the music, I really did, but the sound was soo bad from where I sat! It really hurted my ears.
Time for coldplay now: the sound wasn't much better and most say the problem with Chris micro got solved after 2 songs, but I thought it was only after the 10th song or something it was totally solved. But the show was absolutely great. Chris has to be the best frontman ever! But the amosphere round my place was so bad..me and 2 other friends were the only one dancing , singing, clapping to all the songs. Because of that and because of the fact we were seated that far away, I never had that ' Wauw-feeling', I liked it, but it wasn't really special to me..
BUT then there was a little pause and suddenly everyone in the venue looked to a point right after me, so I turned around, and there they were, 10m from me they were playing the acoustic set!little Very awesome to see them so close.
When they stared on the big stage again with Politik, the sound suddenly was perfect and then it was amazing!t It's my fav live song! Lovers in Japan was absolutely beautiful aswell.
Glass of Water really surprised me, very cool song and even cooler they only played this in Antwerp!! Yellow was the final big sing a long and then it was over....Amazing show! But good god, I was so jealuous of the people who were standing in the centre area, the atmosphere seemed so great there.

But the coolest thing has to come after the concert, I have to go now but I will post the backstage adventures later this evening.

06-10-2008, 06:09 PM
So after the concert we hang around in the venue as we wanted to walk the same way as Coldplay did when they ran from the stage to the C-stage for the acoustic set( haha, I'm a freak, I know). We kept walking further and further 'till we saw a cord( don't know exactly how to say in english) which means you may not walk further anymore, but there was no security around..so we walked under it and we were next to the stage then. On the other side there was a door...and it got open!
Still no security..
then there was this little hall to another door which opened aswell and there we saw a sort of refter for the roadies etc( all their bags, food,) and after that another door! We just kept walking into the backstage, man, that was so exciting, the thought that every moment you could see a coldplay member maybe or... in the worst case the security who sends you out).
And then we stood in front of a door with 2 little windows in it, we looked trough it and we saw doors of toilets and I think....dressing rooms aswell!!!

I knew coldplay was somewhere very near then! We stood there( me + a friend) looking trough the little window and saw a woman coming, couldn't see clearly who it was, my friend ran away but I hid behind the door :d. I looked again trough the window and I saw someone coming out of the toilet. I was shocked( security maybe) and started to run back a little bit, but noticed he started walking in the opposite direction and I thought ' I KNEW this person, the hair, the length, he turned his face a bit to the right( didn't see me yet) and it was.....GUY BERRYMAN! Coming out of the toilets!omg!
I yelled to my friend to come back, so she could see Guy aswell, and we stood there pointing at him and yelling etc...haha, then he looked back , trough the window, and his face was like' huu, what's going on here' omg he looked at us!
But because we were yellying so hard a security man saw us and we had to leave there.
The moment we saw Guy went so so fast, but it was amazing! I think he was wearing a black shirt and jeans( if someone's interested in his clothing, hehe:d) and looked absolutely gorgeous!

I wanted to see the other guys so hard that we ran outside the venue, to the back.
and like Chavi and Carla said, we saw a door, wide open, with ' Backstage lounge' written above it. ( that was 1 hour after the concert I think) . There were chairs for the security but no one sat there, it was totally empty in there and then I saw THE ping pong table, haha:d we entered the backstage lounge and climbed up the stairs, went further, 'till we saw that bar like Carla and Chavi did...It was so cool to think the lads have been there, there were still drinks on a table( maybe where they were relaxing etc)...We also saw the door where they entered the stage I think, not sure of that... but no doors or stairs anymore, we could't go to the dressing rooms etc... but WAUW, what an amazing experience: Seeing Guy truough a little window( just for a few seconds) and a part of the backstage from coldplay...

We went back to get out again, and I think there were standing 2 girls next to the door of the backstage lounge, and I'm pretty sure it was you girls,, chavi and carla! :d

Chavi
06-10-2008, 06:14 PM

06-10-2008, 06:21 PM
goh, I don't know exactly, we spended quite some time on the other side of the backstage( where we saw Guy) , had a few drinks after...so hhmm, I think it must be 1.5hours after the concert, or a little bit later....and you girls?

Chavi
06-10-2008, 06:26 PM
cant remember either.. maybe around 00:30 .. I dont really know! I was so tired I kept falling asleep in the car while Carla was singing along the radio :nice:

10 minutes.. hmm let's see. We were probably still asking for setlists and people were not at their cars yet.. so yeah they might have left then, they still had some time before getting stuck in traffic. that thought should make me feel better ! phew !

But because we were yellying so hard a security man saw us and we had to leave there.
The moment we saw Guy went so so fast, but it was amazing! I think he was wearing a black shirt and jeans( if someone's interested in his clothing, hehe:d) and looked absolutely gorgeous!

I wanted to see the other guys so hard that we ran outside the venue, to the back.
and like Chavi and Carla said, we saw a door, wide open, with ' Backstage lounge' written above it. ( that was 1 hour after the concert I think) . There were chairs for the security but no one sat there, it was totally empty in there and then I saw THE ping pong table, haha:d we entered the backstage lounge and climbed up the stairs, went further, 'till we saw that bar like Carla and Chavi did...It was so cool to think the lads have been there, there were still drinks on a table( maybe where they were relaxing etc)...We also saw the door where they entered the stage I think, not sure of that... but no doors or stairs anymore, we could't go to the dressing rooms etc... but WAUW, what an amazing experience: Seeing Guy truough a little window( just for a few seconds) and a part of the backstage from coldplay...

We went back to get out again, and I think there were standing 2 girls next to the door of the backstage lounge, and I'm pretty sure it was you girls,, chavi and carla! :d


I don't think I saw anybody come out exceot people fromthe red cross...
but are you sure it was us? I was wearing a red coat....

I knew coldplay was somewhere very near then! We stood there( me + a friend) looking trough the little window and saw a woman coming, couldn't see clearly who it was, my friend ran away but I hid behind the door :d. I looked again trough the window and I saw someone coming out of the toilet. I was shocked( security maybe) and started to run back a little bit, but noticed he started walking in the opposite direction and I thought ' I KNEW this person, the hair, the length, he turned his face a bit to the right( didn't see me yet) and it was.....GUY BERRYMAN! Coming out of the toilets!omg!

cant remember either.. maybe around 00:30 .. I dont really know! I was so tired I kept falling asleep in the car while Carla was singing along the radio :nice:

10 minutes.. hmm let's see. We were probably still asking for setlists and people were not at their cars yet.. so yeah they might have left then, they still had some time before getting stuck in traffic. that thought should make me feel better ! phew !

I was trying to stay awake...:wideeyed: I sang along with everything.. even shakira... stupid car didn't have a cd player... I have my own van back now :nice: with coldplay mp3 cd...:D

okay I'm calm now....


at this point, everything is important!!!!!!

do tell...... :)

when we just came in Vicky was on stage with a short woman with dark hair(don't think it was marianne) and two children... one blond girl (about apples age but it wasn't her) and a boy... about 2 I'd say... but not moses!

After albert they came back on again...
Chris first dedicated strawberryswing to I think he said Georgia and nico? or nicole...

then he decicated viva la vida to his godson ehrrhhm what was his name again.. I wanna say laurence but that wasn't it!

Chavi
06-10-2008, 08:29 PM
you told me the second name was Louise, not Laurence :uhoh:

Carlaatje
06-10-2008, 08:46 PM
tnx that was what I needed Louis... his godson.. any one know about this?
Chavi and I discussed this off course we put our money on mimi... so get your butt in here mimi!!!!

Mimi as in me me?

Chris does have a godson but I can't remember who the parents are (someone Gwyneth knows as I recall) or the name of the child. Plus he could have acquired more god children since then too, I guess. Sorry :\

Chavi
06-10-2008, 10:02 PM
yep as in you ! :P
oh so he does have a godson.. so that might have been him.
that was cute when Vikki let them put the black tape on Chris' setlist near the piano :nice:

Mimixxx
06-10-2008, 10:05 PM
Yeah I definitely remember it being reported in like 2003 that he was asked to be a godfather, for friends of Gwyneth's. But I don't see why they would be backstage at a Coldplay gig :lol: So maybe it was a different child. :idea2:

We didnt want to take any pic of them, because that would have been just too weird.. they're just kids. :confused: but then I really wonder who they are. I freaked out and thought it was Apple.. but Nah that's just insane and Chris would never let it happen.

it's really not that important.. but I'm just too curious !

Chavi
06-10-2008, 10:57 PM
Carla wanted one of those bottles, and I said 'God, that's just water'.. and then she said 'I'm thirsty, I could use some water now :dozey:' ..

take a cotton bud, collect his saliva on the neck of the bottle and you'll have his DNA ! in a few years, maybe you'll be able to clone JONNY BUCKLAND ! :stunned: :lol:

Here’s the rest of the story of the most amazing weekend Ive ever had so far in my life !


Didnt get much sleep.. but it’ll be alright ! it’s gonna be the 6th time I see Coldplay live in 34 days for the Viva la vida Tour !!! we’re on a OMG-we-met-Chris-Martin-last-night high, and nothing can bring us down ! We’re leaving for Antwerp early in the morning, because WE NEED our front row spots again ! we have people to say Hi to you know =P hehe ! Carla and I are the 4th and 5th person to be at the venue (which is an ugly one btw..). The doors are wide open, the roadies are setting up the stage, we can see it from outside.. weeee, we’re gonna be right over there tonight ! So we’re sitting here against the glass windows making new banners for the band and Reno Bo. Ninke (aka Fryske Famke) joins us and gives us our tickets. We have a pizza for lunch which was a very nice idea I must say as it probably was the only real meal we had for two days ; when we see Pete from Oxfam inside the venue.. We knock on the windows and wave but he doesn’t notice us. So we make him a banner which says ‘Hey Pete’ and he sees us, quite surprised again ! but he laughed so it was great ! made the waiting a little less long.. :P Later, we see him outside the venue this time and thank him for mentioning us in his blog :). Around 5pm, Carla tells me she could hear a new song played during soundcheck (which was surely Glass of water) when she got back to the car. I hear it too when I go across the street to get some water at the pizza place. It’s very exciting, we’re hoping they’ll play it tonight.
They open the door at 6:35pm, the security is being FUCKING ANNOYING but eventually we get through, and so we run ! I don’t know how it happened but I managed to get an Oxfam flyer when running ! Hehe Good job me ! :lol: we struggled through security who was telling us to slow down but GOT OUR FRONT ROW RESERVED SPOTS, center right between Chris and Guy : PERFECT ! a bit upset at the beginning because people who came much later to the venue got perfect center spots, but later we realise that ours are simply THE BEST ! we were between, on one side two guys who were a bit weird as they were nice but wouldn’t want to share their pics and wouldn’t admit it (thank you…………. whatever) and one the other side two young girls who had the lyrics printed on papers and were practicing with their ipod on.. COME ON, SERIOUSLY ??!!!!!!! you don’t know the songs ?? WTF ?! :dozey: !! That was pretty annoying, but huuh.. anyways. Thank God the guy behind us was nice .. Well, from what I understood.. he spoke mostly to Carla in Dutch. I had no idea what the hell they were talking about actually ! Haha !
(okay, I’ll just shut up.. this is getting way too long for a review.. is not even a review Haha :lol:)
Highlights :
-We waved some balloons and the ‘Hey Reno, how you doin’ ?’ banner and he saw us !!! he even laughed hehe ! again, we were the only ones clapping at the front ! Poor Albert ! We got two setlists of the band which were directly given to us by a roadie ! SWEET ! and also one of the guitar picks Reno threw in our direction !
-LIFE IN TECHNICOLOR : I keep repeating myself in each review, but the beginning is always AMAZING! That’s when the fun starts and you cant get tired of it ! Never ever !
-Violet hill : Chris said HEY !!!!!! Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee ! he saw and recognized the ‘you make me shiver’ banner he signed the night before in Rotterdam ! OMG !
-In my place : the yeahs were pretty awesome ! so much energy and that’s when the guys gather. AWESOME ! and the drums always kick ass in that song !
-Just before Cemeteries of London : ‘We hope you have a great time, Please sing with us, THANKS TO PEOPLE WHO’VE BEEN TO OTHER SHOWS BEFORE THIS ONE!’ :stunned: OMG is he talking about us and pointing in OUR direction at the same time ? OH YEAH HE IS ! Yaaay !
-CSC : I love it ! I love it ! I love it ! oh and I love it !
-Fix you : Tears almost streamed down my face ! I swear !
-Viva la vida and Lost! Such a great combination ! it rocks live !
-it was Ongeloofelijk ! Chris’s new favorite word ! haha !
-We started the cellphone thing during the Viva remix ! That was much better than in Rotterdam ! Come on people do it it’s fun ! no one saw the video from Paris or what?
-Politik !! I was dead tired after that one ! it was so great and powerful !
-Lovers in Japan, again the tears.. but no ! I enjoyed as much as I could !
-Chris waving back at us when he goes off stage before the last encore ! Weeeeeeeeeeee !
-GLASS OF WATER !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! as soon as we saw Chris heading to the piano WE JUST KNEW ! Such a nice present from them ! the song rocks live, I cant wait to hear the studio version. It really is something to discover a song for the first time when it’s played live. You just enjoy and you cannot not fall for it ! I thought it’d be more a slow song, but I was gladly surprised !
-When they played Glass of water it was probably one of the first time I see Albert Hammond Jr smiling and laughing like this at a Coldplay concert ! Haha !
-They took their time to say bye to Europe.. that was nice and emotional. And that was it !
-Got a setlist from the other cameraman who came to us, although he was far and could’ve given it to someone closer .. THANK YOU!

We knew, or had the feeling that the band left already but we still went to the back entrance. But no German vans this time.. bummer! We met the famous ping pong table, after sneaking in backstage when we saw a door open ! nothing can stop us hehe ! we went upstairs, went into the lounge bar, but no Coldplay.. so we left. Later, we went back and saw Pete again. Great moment !
And we went back home..
that was the end .. of this tour leg I mean ! Don’t worry, I’ll be back :P !
