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 ) 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
I know what you mean Chris is always moving like crazy, the only decent shots I get of him are him sitting at the pianoThey're not the best pics haha. It wasn't my camera and it was way too slow taking pics with Chris running around like a madman
I don't know if I can I hope so thoughSquee Squee Squeeeeee!
Get ready Min, for you are meeting Jonny today/tomorrow!
He is indeedWow, Chris has really been the hero of this tour. He's stopped for almost everyone. What a sweetheart.
first post updated
I know what you mean!i dont really post in this part of the forum that much. over the last couple of years my passion for coldplay has died down a little bit but having been a fan for sooo long i really wanted to see them live at least once, and see what its like. having looked at the setlists for the tour i was dissapointed that they were soo one dimensional almost identical every night. but wow last night was one hell of an experience. one i will never forget. i've been to my fair share of big concerts but this was different to all of them. it felt like much more of a "show" rather that your regular concert. rather than just hearing 20-odd songs being played it was light show, stage spectacular and a hint of comedy from chris. despite experiencing countless technical difficulties through the night they sounded amazing. but the one thing i will remember from the show is how it felt like the band were performing for each and everyone of us individually at no point did it feel like they were simply going through the motions.
leading up to the show i was thinking this will the first and last time i see the boys live. but after last night my mind has been changed. i really hope they come back soon. i could continue writing about last night forever but i'll stop here. but highlight of the night for me was when the crowd sang the harmonies to viva la vida, a song i dont like that much but when its being sung by 20 000 sydneysiders its the best song in the world!!
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).
Thank you so much for the videos! I've been watching them as you've been uploading them.I got about 18 songs on video [nearly all of them in High Definition if you have a fast connection] i'm posting them up slowly [most are 300-400MB files and take a couple of hrs for me to upload]. i'll collect them all on a playlist on my youtube channel soon. In the meantime, what d'ya think about the colours in Life in Technicolor ii [encore]? Amazing....
