I wasn't there, but looking at the vid, it looks like Chris's cord came undone, and tried it then decided to just go to the piano alittle ahead of schedule:) Couldn't see where J maybe stepped on it.

@ Angie, well so much for you being worried your pics wouldn't come out :rolleyes: :P

I think they are better than mine! I need a new camera though, it's too grainy with video and such and the zoom is crap - plus the microphone issue ;)

Home at last!
Why must Texas be so frickin big! :angry:

Woot got hi 5 from Jonny, I wore my Southampton shirt and got a "nice shirt" from Will on their way to the B Stage, then a hi 5 from Will on his way back to main stage. :D
And lots of love from Jackie! Hugs and she remembered where I live. :stunned: After, the cute little security guard that gave me the set list said I thought you said that lady didn't like you. You look like old friends. :lol:


She was acting so BFF with me.
Jackie: Hey, how you doing? :hug: You been going to lots of shows. This is where you live right?
Me--> :stunned: uh, yeah.
Me: Hey did you hear about Nettie?
Jackie:That's the black girl right? No what happened?
Me: she got killed in a car accident
Jackie: WHAT! Fuck! *said into the headset mic that goes out to all the security people, then she does a oops and covers the mic* OMG that is horrible!
Me: I know, it's so sad. On her way to a concert.
Jackie: Well have fun tonight *leaves*


Me: :uhoh2: Did that just happen?

ANGIE :bomb: I seriously think you get more and more lucky at every show you go to! :bomb: I cant believe that stuff about Jackie either :stunned:


OMG my Houston Hi 5 video is awesome! :D

i saw you and Angie. infact, the first person i saw once i sat down was Angie. i was about 20 rows behind you guys. nice pics and videos by the way!



thanks Angie :D



what does she look like? i think sometime before the show started she was sitting in a seat in the row in front of me :thinking:



awesome!



nice brenda!



ok the nothing really special happened to me, but it was a great show!
if only i had been at the end of the row i could have gotten a video similar to Angie's hi 5 video. :\
also, my we waited around for about an hour where the band would have come out because we were pretty sure they were still there (there was a line of people with backstage passes waiting to meet the band after the show) but some police peeps on horses who had sat there with the about 10 or so of us that whole time out of the blue told us to leave. after an hour.
could have told us sooner :shifty:

I apologise about the sound in the second video. I don't know why it didn't pick up the sound very well, since the others were ok. I think it was Will's electronic drums, ha!

Hey guys! Just spent the past hour or so reading all the posts of the concert...it was AMAZING. I was front and center with Brenda--Chris just inches away!! But he didn't ever look down directly at us, which was sort of annoying. Though we're both convinced Guy was looking at us :smug:

Thanks for the pics everyone! And the videos--that high five!! I'm jealous! It may sound crazy, but I hate taking pictures/videos during concerts...I get so distracted. I'm no good with a camera anyway, so I just don't bother and leave it up to other people. And you guys obviously did a good job :)

We stayed after too to try and get some autographs, something, anything! but the jackass security guards shooed us off. They were mean about it, too. Ugh. But whatever--someday, somehow, I shall meet the boys! This was only my third concert, but by far the most amazing. There is just no beating the front of the pit. I mean, last two, I was basically in the nosebleeds, far as could possibly be. After this experience, no more!

I tried yelling at the boys individually--they either didn't hear most of the time or just ignored me :( BUT when Chris was playing Postcards, and the rest were getting ready for VLV, I screamed, "HEY WILL!!" and I think he actually heard, as he like lifted his arms in greeting or something :D So that was awesome.

Anyway, great show, will miss the boys--until the next show!

Oh, and I forgot to mention: Phil was taking pictures RIGHT in front of me, and I had the greatest urge to just pet him. He's so adorable!! Gahh. But I resisted. ;)

Also! I was with my little cousin (well, she's twelve) and after the show, a roadie was reaching down with a guitar pick. I immediately reach out, but he's like, "For the little girl" ! Just because I'm not little doesn't mean I don't want a souvenir! Just like at baseball games...ugh.... but whatever. I worked out a deal with her. I have half-custody :laugh3:

ok here's my 42 vid. it shows Guy, Chris, and ESPECIALLY Jonny rocking out, the part where the roadie runs by to fix Chris' cord (at about 01:08 is where it looks like possible Jonny stepped on the cord or Chris accidentally yanked it out), and the part where Chris and the crowd hold out the OH at the end

Yes!!! I see it on your vid, I watched this same vid from a different angle and didn't notice it, looks like J turns and walks away and kind of tangles in it, then Chris just got annoyed after the guy ran out to plug him back in and just flipped the guitar off and went to the piano early than he usually does.:D

This show was so amazing I enjoyed it even more then the one at the Toyota Center, probably because COLDLAY come down right to were I was and did tree songs about ten feet away from me. Best night ever!!!

I had 4 tixs for the 109 section, literally 10 ft from the mid-audience stage. We had only 2 of our group sitting there (the others were in 103BB with me) and we chose to leave the other 2 seats vacant in 109 b/c we could not sell them.
I actually sent my 11 yo grand daughter into section 109 before the concert to see if they were better seats, she declined & came back to sit with me in 103BB.
Well, when Coldplay went to the mid section to play, she was crying b/c she would have been 10 ft from them. :(
I was able to bring her right up and below them about 15 ft away. SHE MELTED away as they sang.:D:):D My daughter (her mother) was in section 109 and melted also as they watched them play so close......
During the concert I was able to catch a yellow baloon and let he knock it back up. Of course, she caught a few butterflies also.
This was her 3rd Coldplay concert, and by far, her best.It just dont get any better than this folks. Long after I'm gone she'll remember this night, as will I to the end.
Oh yea, the others in our group gave it 5 stars too.
The only negative to the night was the heat in the Pavilion, it was still hot at the end. :(
I personally rocked so HARD that i dislodged a tooth crown and have been in pain till this am when I went to my dentist for relief. And I'd do it agin in a heartbeat.
Praising Coldplay on this site is preaching to the choir, but, heck, they ARE the best. Lookin forward to our next concert.My grand daughter will be with me then too. :D Cheers !

Yay! I've had so much fun reading everyone's reviews and seeing all the pics and videos!!
So glad everyone had a great time!
MrMan, awesome pics and videos... in fact, I'm JUST outside the frame of your video of Death will never conquer!
Angie- Awesome high 5's and Jackie love!
Brenda- Gorgeous pics (great stuff for the Chris thread!! :D)

We were on the lawn this night, since we had been in PIT the night before. I must say, this was THE BEST lawn experience I've ever had. We were directly on the barricade for the c-stage, which meant I had a completely unobstructed view of the stage (though they were still tiny!). My only complaint was that when we first got there (right when lawn gates opened), they had a canopy set up over the c-stage, and we didn't know if they were going to take it down, so we took seats just to the left of the actual stage. This resulted in us getting to see mainly the guys' backs at the c-stage, but it was still awesome. More on that in a sec...

My husband and I were seated on the lawn by 5:40, so we settled in for a long wait. The security guy in front of us and I became great friends, chatting about the shows he's seen (he played with Gwen Stefani's kids when No Doubt was there last week!). We enjoyed the great opening acts. Kitty, Daisy and Lewis were AWESOME. Loved them. In fact, I need to go download their CD. Amadou and Mariam were also fun. About 20 minutes into our wait, a large cloud bank rolled in front of the sun, making things much more bearable. But that's also when I started to worry about rain.

Anyway, Magnificent came on, then Jay-Z and the Blue Danube and everyone around me was very excited. I love that they have a roadie leading claps for the Blue Danube now. They didn't do that when I saw them in SA. Finally, the lights went out, LIT began, and the sparklers came out! :dance: Though I was a mile away, the energy and excitement were electric. As in Dallas the night before, the band sounded awesome. Chris' voice is just gorgeous live and the guys seemed to be in high spirits. Around the beginning of the show, we began to feel random drops of rain and see BIG flashes of lightning. The lightning intensified throughout the show, which was a little scary (but also kind of cool), as we were literally standing on a metal barricade, but luckily, the storm seemed to move away from us and we never got more than a few random drops. The storm did keep a nice breeze blowing, so though the lawn was PACKED (sec. guy said it was completely sold out), it was actually quite pleasant out there (for a Houston night, anyway!).

The show progressed as normal (which is to say, it was fantastic) and I was excited to finally be able to really see the b-stage performance, as I had been in the PIT for Dallas and first row for SA and hadn't gotten to see it then. Loved GPASUYF and Talk, and HOPED that Chris would do Trouble again, but it was back to the Hardest Part. I knew we were getting close to c-stage time and started getting really excited. BTW, I was REALLY impressed by the crowd on the lawn. EVERYONE around me was standing the whole time and tons of people were singing their lungs out. From the very first words of Violet Hill I could hear people singing along. That was awesome.

So when it was c-stage time, the band walked up the steps to the stage right in front of me. They got set up and for Green Eyes they were all kind of moving around and turning looking in different directions, so I got to see all of them really well. After that, they settled into a formation of all looking out in the same general direction (away from me :( ) but I still loved it. I took video of basically the whole c-stage set, so I'll get that uploaded and posted here soon. We got some great shots here, too. I got a huge smile from Guy (well, not just me, but ya know :P) and Jonny was really cute dancing around with his tamborine. I was struck by how INCREDIBLY BLUE Chris' eyes were (sorry for the fangirly moment) and Will was AWESOME. He was back toward my end of the stage, so I really got to watch him. So cool. So when the set was over and the guys went running off (Chris is ridiculously fast- he flew down the steps and was gone before the others even made it to the steps), my friend, security guy, hands two girls guitar picks that had been left on the stage, and one of the girls (she was probably around 16 and IN LOVE with Chris- very cute) got a bottle of water that one of the guys had been drinking from. Then he came over to me and handed me a bottle of water from the stage (still sealed, though) AND a towel that had been used to wipe Chris' sweaty brow :wacky: My husband was laughing at me like I was crazy, but I loved it!!

Anyway, after that awesome moment, we were all pumped for the last few songs and the encore. Everyone was dancing around and singing. SO MUCH FUN. I was a little sad to see the concert end and have my summer of Coldplay come to a close, but everything was so fantastic. We have some awesome memories, and I've got some great souvenirs, too!! :D

Highlights of the show for me: Strawberry Swing, LIJ (always such a great moment) and C-STAGE!!!!!!
Video to come soon!!!

:lol: Yeah, it was funny. When I told the people around me (who got there early) that the band would be RIGHT THERE, no one believed me at first. I was honestly afraid the girl standing directly behind me was going to faint. When they started the walk up from the stage, she was like, "OMG OMG, CHRIS MARTIN IS COMING HERE!!! OMG!!!" You can hear her screaming throughout my video. :lol:

I went walking around looking for you, Angie, but I couldn't remember where you had said you were sitting. I was wearing a black tank top I decorated with a neon green LRLRL butterfly.

I think she may be the one who upgraded me at my show... I asked if anyone knew who she was in the roadies thread- but no one knew!

Marta! I will eternally be grateful for you! :)

LOL yeah when they came right to where I was and started playing ten feet infront of me I started doing the same thing. All i could say was OMG OMG OMG OMGx100, I was so shocked I was shaking and thought I might pass out at the sight of Chris, Jonny, Guy and Will right there in the fleah. I will remember that to the day I die.

ugh. believe me, I tried. My camera is so old and crappy that once it's in video mode you can't zoom in w/out stopping it, zooming and re-starting. :(

http://angie-footieandconcerts.blogspot.com/

I read your blog. You are "ate up with it" just like my group! The costume was a fantastic idea,wish I had thought of that. But then had I wore it, people would KNOW I was crazy- a 56 yo man in a costume as such ...whehhhh:D
We had 2 rooms at the Marriott, had we known you were in the parking lot sweltering in the heat, you could have chilled with us. My daughters and grand daughter would have liked that. Maybe next time?
:)
We made the last Houton show in November 08, made the New Orleans show last month and the Woodlands last Wednesday. They were all great shows, but forced to choose one- I'd take Houston this week. Only downside was the heat. You blog is great, sorry to ramble on. ;)

Aww, you should have come over and said hello!! :D

Aww, you should have come over and said hello!! :D

ah you know i totally would have! :wink: but i was stuck with my mom and my friend was with me. and im pretty sure my mom wouldnt be comfortable with me going over to random people to say hi to them, and then would be even MORE uncomfortable if i told her i knew them from the internet :stunned: although my friend wouldnt have cared.
but by coldplay's next tour i'll be in college and surely be able to go to them without anyone, or with someone who wouldnt care.

Hi all,

I finally posted my reviews of the show (did a Dallas/Houston combo) on my blog at www.austingirlmusicguide.com (http://www.austingirlmusicguide.com). I reviewed Kitty, Daisy and Lewis and Amadou & Mariam as well and posted pics from the Dallas show (we were really far from the stage in Houston, so the pics aren't too great). Hope you check it out! :)

Hey!! That's me! In the crazy yellow shirt! I'm Luisa *shakes hands* You could've come talked to me, I wouldn't have been freaked out :) Actually I met up with Brenda, a fellow Coldplaying member (yellow745 I think it is?..) at the gates before the show. She's the one next to the girl in the blue shirt next to me.

I wanted to find fellow Coldplayers as well, but I didn't see anyone else with crazy t-shirt/costumes :( Maybe they were dressed normally? Ah, well.

Btw LOVE your shirt! :)

Coldplay’s Viva La Vida Tour Justifies Grammy Domination

This is Coldplay’s year. Long time fans of the British band’s melodic pop tunes have been able to celebrate the success of Viva La Vida, and the previous three beloved albums, on this year’s tour that seems almost endless. The thing about Coldplay that keeps reeling listeners in, is the consistency of innovation in their artistic rock that relentlessly reflects any and all streams of emotion.

In 1999, the popish breakout single, “Yellow” from their debut album Parachutes, put Coldplay on the map. Later, we were introduced to “Clocks,” “The Scientist” and “In My Place” from their second album, A Rush of Blood to the Head. A deep soulful album, X & Y, followed up in 2005, giving us the hits “Fix You” and “Speed of Sound.” Then, most recently, Viva La Vida or Death With All His Friends, provided a breath of fresh air to Coldplay fans with a feel good album full of uplifting and inspirational tracks like “Violet Hill,” “Lost,” “Lovers in Japan” and “Strawberry Swing.” It must be said that if you have not given “Strawberry Swing” a listen at this point, you must lend your ears for a quick minute of your day and enjoy.

Coldplay brings more than sound to a show. They bring real entertainment and a beautiful performance. For a second, one might think a Coldplay concert would be boring, with all the emotional “slow” songs. However, the thousands of fans at the sold out show on July 22, at The Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion in Houston would say that it’s just not so. From the large yellow balloons floating in the air and crowd surfing during “Yellow,” to the bursts of confetti throughout “Viva La Vida,” to the crisp and riveting up close video of Chris Martin rocking on the piano, there was no denying that this show was all about having fun.

Twice during the two hours of play time, the entire band – Martin, Jonny Buckland, Guy Berryman and Will Champion – traveled into the crowd to perform in the middle of their adoring fans. This kind of intimate surprise is rare during shows at larger venues housing thousands of passionate fans. Coldplay reached out and kept it fresh. Another treat for fans included a special cover of the late Michael Jackson’s “Billie Jean.” Thousands sang along in tribute.

Martin’s vocals were almost flawless and quite similar to studio perfection. He danced and spun around free – arms flowing in the air – as he normally does during songs like “Lost” and “Strawberry Swing.” There is one message this band exudes through their perfection and brilliant execution in performance, and the message is clear – this band was meant to tour.

As the show ended and fans flooded to the exit, each person was given a free CD with live tracks from previous shows. The CD included live versions of “Strawberry Swing,” “Clocks,” “Glass of Water” and more.

Sadly, Martin mentions at the end of the show that it may be a few years until we see them again. If a few years is what it will take for another Grammy dominating album and top notch entertaining world tour … well, we’ll just have to accept the wait.

-Melissa Kabilio

Also, I finally finished uploading ALL of the concert videos to You Tube (Dallas and Houston). Check out, http://www.youtube.com/user/AustinGirlMusicGuide to see full length videos and my personal You Tube channel, http://www.youtube.com/user/virginiarh22, to see all the snippets and short clips.

Dang I guess i missed this bandwagon! But I was there as well, I was up on the lawn next to the stairs by the C-stage! It was crazy, when the band was running up there to play! I was sooo close to them that if there weren't people there to stop us i could have touched them(swoon)! It was the best concert that I have ever been to! The night was incredible with all the thunder and lightning surrounding us, but never any rain! It was such an incredible atmosphere, and I don't think anybody came away from that concert sad or thought it was mediocre! I loved their tribute to "Houston boys and girls" This was one incredible concert that I will never get over! Next time i am forking up the money for the best seats in the house!!!!!!!!!!!
