BUMP!!!

Just bumped into a friend of mine at uni who I hadn't seen in ages. She's going to the show tonight but isn't getting there until 5:30, though she's in standing area.

A-fucking-mazing. They played Glasses Of Water and I almost had a heart attack. They played every single song I wanted them to. Now to do it all again tomorrow. Had to plan my attack for GA. I'm going to get there around 4:30 to line up and then if I can't get to the very front before other people when we're let in, I will head to the right of the stage where they play a few songs on the little runway type thing. My hope is many people won't have been tonight and won't realise to stand there.

Please forgive me again for my incohesiveness after a gig.

I was sitting this time, on Jonny's side :p I was at the end of the ramp so I had a good view of him during IMP. He saw my banner again, and gave me a smile :heart: The concert was great, they played GOW and I'm a Believer, the energy was amazing!!! :D

I got told off by the people behind to sit down because I got excited and started dancing :rolleyes: I was kinda disappointed that I was probably the only person in my block singing GOW.

And something else really FAIL. I was in the queue for the merch and there was this girl behind me who told her friend, 'I really like the blue butterfly tee, but butterflies have NOTHING to do with Coldplay!'

*facepalm*

And we met Will and Chris :dead:

We were waiting outside the loading bay trying our luck. Will came out in a van and was very patient and gracious :heart: He told us both Guy and Jonny had left before him, but Chris was still around. So we waited... and waited...

Then this van with tinted windows came out. It didn't stop, although the person inside was waving at us. Some of us thought it was Chris, but the others weren't convinced, so we continued waiting until this nice security guard informed us that Chris was INDEED coming out, although we were to wait quietly and not mob his car.

So we stood at a respectful distance before Kelly came out and opened the door for Chris. He signed everything we threw at him :laugh3:, and took a couple of pictures.

My hands are still shaking.

:laugh3: My friend who I took said I was the only one she could see singing GOW. It's in my top 3 Coldplay songs atm, along with Politik and Death and All His Friends, so I'm a happy girl. I really wanted some merch, but the line was too long. I may as well just get it off the website. I too, like the butterfly shirt. I at least know what it means though haha!

Oh no!! I wanted to wait around, but my friend needed to go home. Can't be greedy though. I was lucky enough to meet them last time.

P.S I stink!!! Too much singing and dancing.

I got the tour tee, which still isn't on their website yet :thinking:

And the tote since it's much cheaper @ the show than online (but that's because I can only buy from the UK site, the US site fails on me :p)

I was so nervous... my hands still cannot stop shaking although I try not to.

Will was really nice :dead: I didn't manage to say much to both because there were just too many people and everyone was trying to get a few words in themselves. Although one of the other persons waiting for Coldplay told Chris that I came from Singapore to Sydney to watch them, and Chris said 'Wow thanks.' :nice:

Oh. I couldn't believe it when the guys came right near our seats on a mini stage. So lucky!!! Some guy gave Guy and Jonny a beer, so Chris gave him his harmonica. Sweet deal!

Well, that would have upstaged my "I came from Adelaide to see you" :p

I don't have many photos for tonight's gig since I was seated. I've got a couple of shaky videos but I guess I can only upload them when I get back to Singapore next week.

Ohh I can imagine your hands are shaking, I would feel the same way. It's amazing you've met them :)
Sounds like a dream to me :wacky:
