    Coldplay makes Jo'burg Paradise

    A blaze of fireworks kicked off British rock band Coldplay's Johannesburg concert at the FNB Stadium in Soweto on Saturday night. Frontman Chris Martin and his band opened the concert with a song from their upcoming fifth studio album Mylo Xyloto, which would be released later this month.

    The audience didn't have to wait long to hear some of their old favourites, with Coldplay launching straight into its first top 10 hit single Yellow. In keeping with the theme, the stadium lit up with yellow lights, lasers, large balloons and beach balls, as the crowd sang along.

    About 62 000 people packed into the stands and field to witness the band's first tour in South Africa. On Tuesday, Coldplay wowed Cape Town fans. Martin told the Johannesburg crowd that the band's drummer Will Champion had suggested shooting a music video in South Africa, saying: "It's so much sunnier and warmer than where we come from." He then asked the crowd: "Would you like to be in the video?"

    The stadium exploded into cheers and screams. Martin explained a minute-long clip would be shot for the end of their new song Paradise.

    The band then proceeded to place huge elephant masks over their heads. "When you're not as attractive as Beyoncé you got to do what you can ... please don't put this on YouTube," he joked.

    The mood remained upbeat through the set with a Mexican wave of cellphone lights around the calabash stadium. In keeping with the sporty spirit of the weekend, Martin replaced lyrics of God Put a Smile Upon Your Face with: "and maybe give the Springboks the World Cup", to the delight of the crowd.

    Coldplay ended the concert with a spectacular three song encore with Clocks, Fix You with the intro to the late Amy Winehouse's Rehab, the new hit Every Teardrop is a Waterfall, and an amazing fireworks display.

    Right, the folks behind Dan Green are responsible for the sound in my way of thinking.

    Well, first off. I heard Coldplay doing there sound check in Cape Town stadium, because I waited in the golden circle line since 9am. To be honest, they didn't really do much of a sound check. In the beginning, they played pre-recorded live versions of each song on the set list and I don't think it had anything to do with Coldplay, probably the organizers. I think it had to do with the organizers or sound techs, because the U2 concert in February at the same stadium also had pathetic sound at the back from where I was sitting. BUT. I also heard Coldplay doing their own proper souncheck, and they didn't really do too much. Just a little silly sounds and stuff. I don't know. I just know that Chris got very cross at the CPT concert during shiver, he asked "what the fuck is that sound???" to some techi who was fiddling around (in front of the whole stadium). So I donno.

    OK, I've just flown home from the Joburg concert, and I am still speechless. I queued from 1pm, and got to the barrier near the end of the ramp. I was completely blown away. I'm not sure what I was expecting from this concert, but the band surpassed every expectation I could have ever had. It was absolutely phenomenal and without a doubt the best live concert I have ever seen. I plan to write a blog post about it later, and I'll post the link here, along with photo's.

    The elephant heads were absolutely hilarious, and i have a video of part of it, which I will try to upload as well. I heard complaints about the sound, but from where I was, it was perfect.

    I don't have the order of the setlist right, but the songs were:
    MX/Hurts Like Heaven
    Yellow
    In My Place
    The Scientist
    Lost!
    Violet Hill
    Viva La Vida
    Politik
    The Hardest Part (acoustic)
    Til Kingdom Come (acoustic)
    Major Minus
    Charlie Brown
    Paradise (and video shoot)
    Shiver
    God Put A Smile Upon Your Face
    Life Is For Living

    Encore:
    Clocks
    Rehab/Fix You
    Every Teardrop Is A Waterfall

    Also, there were two pianos, the painted one was on the main part of the stage, and another plain one was at the end of the ramp, and was used for The Hardest Part and Til Kingdom Come, when Will played it for a bit.
