That's so lucky! We went straight to the loading dock to wait for them and the security lady said they had already left! What a liar!! That was about 11.10pm ... Does that mean if we had waited a little longer we could have seen them?? I bought a texta especially for autographs and didn't get to use it.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 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.
It was such an amazing concert!! They came so close when they went into the crowd. They were in the next section so we went down close to them and were only about 5 metres away! It was weird to see them so close instead of on the stage or on TV - we were like "Wow, they're actual people!"
The crowd was pretty great, especially towards the end. At some points though I think they could have sung along better. Although Chris did say we are all into the finals for Australia's Got Talent.
I really liked the slow version of The Hardest Part, it was lovely. And in the set they played in the crowd how Chris was asking everyone "Are you in love?" :laugh3:
Overall, an excellent night. A Coldplay concert is always more than worth the money it costs to see them. And I will somehow find a way to preserve my butterflies.
