I forgot to mention, one girl fainted before the show even started. How bad would that suck!! I was on the verge on a panic attack, I must admit. I hate crowds and I think I have a mild case of claustrophobia.

Oh, and I think the setlist was the same as last nights, except they played Green Eyes instead of Speed of Sound.

Oh, and Chris' dad was on the other side of the runway to me in the front row of seats. He got up in Viva La Vida and Lost I think. I wonder what he thinks of the music.
they played green eyes??? no wayyyyy!!!! i'm so jealous right now..hopefully they'll play it this saturday...or sunday...lol.

i dont know how chris' dad looked like..do u have a photo?

and yea...yesterday too there was a girl fainted before the boys came out...
i cant imagine being in that situation!

everyone was freaking out about the no photography rule and everything(thanks to the announcement they made every 10minutes)...turned out that there was nothing to be worried of...

Sorry, didn't think to take a photo of him. Just an old-ish looking guy with silver/grey hair. Very British looking haha.

Yes, I just came home from the show to answer your question in the other thread. I'm exhausted haha. I was next to the fence with the end of the runway to my direct right. Planned last night to head to that spot if I couldn't get to the front (which I got nowhere near).

Oh and another thing which has really been bugging me is people in the crowd and the shoutouts I heard on the radio after the show only screaming "I love you Chris", "Chris is awesome" etc. There's 3 other very talented band members you know. The only time I heard one of them mentioned was "the drummer sang too". His name is Will. If you're willing to spend $140 on tickets, you should know this.

lol. people around me were a bit like that too. they only sing the songs that are total hit and do not know a single word of the other songs. come on, do your homework before coming! when i talked to people, they were saying that i did my research...well, u do not have to do researches when u are a fan..

OK... a very fast post since it's 3.30am already.

The crowd was definitely better tonight (especially the seated crowd... more people stood up :lol: in fact EVERYONE in the section beside me stood up :D) Setlist was the same as last night except for the C stage songs, which were Green Eyes, I'm a Believer and DWNC.

A bunch of us waited at the loading dock for the boys. Unfortunately Guy and Jon had left early again, and Will drove off but did not stop although he waved. We waited close to 4 hours in the cold before Chris finally came out. He took photos with everyone and signed one autograph per person :bomb:

That pisses me off big time really. As much as Chris Martin is the frontman of Coldplay, Guy, Jon and Will (and Phil) are still very much a part of Coldplay. All of them should get the recognition they deserve.

Four hours! Wow. When I was waiting in the dock area for the staff bus driver to get his coffee so that I could get to P5, the security guy said that the band were having a party because it was the 100th show and that Chris was going to still be in there for a while. That was close to 2AM so I guess it is better I left to go home then.

Apparently they have never stuck around so long at a venue before (according to the security guy, who is lovely, and to one of my boss-type people) and that it is because the dressing rooms are more spacious than usual at Acer Arena.

Link to a video taken by someone I know who was also there of Chris telling the story of the guy getting a massage at the hotel - followed by I'm a Believer.

:bomb: I hope so, but they have been doing runners every night since Brisbane so I don't think I have much chance to meet then :sad:

I'm working, but I took leave to travel. Singapore is about 7 hours by plane to Sydney.

The security guy is really nice. He came out to talk to us for about half an hour before Chris came out. He had lots of great stories and anecdotes :nice:
