    A fantastic night. I waited around for Chris after the show, and when he did come out, he was his usual friendly and obliging self :)

    :laugh3: I know what you mean Chris is always moving like crazy, the only decent shots I get of him are him sitting at the piano :p
    I don't know if I can :sad: I hope so though :nice:
    He is indeed :nice::heart:

    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!!

    I know what you mean!
    For me "Clocks" is overplayed or at leat I heard it too often. Hearing it at a concert however is a completely different thing!
    Love it.

    I'm happy for you that you got to see them live!
    When leaving the venue all you have in your happy mind is thinking about when you will be able to see them again, isn't it?

    I saw you'll record the benefit concert as well - thank you so much for doing that, you'll make MANY people happy!!!!

    It's strange how songs which aren't our favourites can blow our minds live. That happened to me on the last tour with Talk and on this tour with Lost. Nowhere near my favourite album songs, but up there with the best songs live for me.

    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....

    Chris mentioned him and you could tell by the way the people around him were acting and the way he was acting that it was him.

    Okay, so I THINK the guy sitting right at the tip of Chris' foot and behind the security guards head, is Chris' dad.

    Okay, so I too was there on Thursday night and it was my first Coldplay concert.

    What I can say is that it was one of the best nights of my life, ever. The atmosphere, the music, everyone singing along... it was just amazing. The boys have an amazing stage presence. I think I almost cried during Strawberry Swing.

    I was with two friends. We were in the 4th standing row on the left side near Jonny. And about half way through the show we found ourselves in the 3rd row, somehow. I could see everything! Getting there early and queuing for hours certainly paid off!

    My only disappointment of the night was that they played Green Eyes instead of Speed of Sound, the song that got me into Coldplay in the first place. Ah well.

    I got myself a program and two t-shirts, I'm so happy I did. They were certainly on the expensive side, but I have no regrets. I also collected a ton of butterflies from Lovers in Japan.

    Highlights of the night (the ones that stood out most for me):

    Life in Technicolor - the months of anticipation finally paid off when this one started, and what a fantastic start it was

    Clocks - this song sounds so much better live, plus the lasers complimented the song so well, everyone got really into it

    Yellow - the yellow balls bouncing around the audience was expected, but exciting nevertheless, plus the song is a classic

    Glass of Water - not everyone knew this one, though the rockier sound of the song had the crowd going, it's my favourite off the EP

    Strawberry Swing - woooow, this song always gets to me, and sounded even better live

    The Hardest Part - the acoustic performance of this one was great, and this song is a personal classic

    Viva la Vida - nothing needs to be said; being their 'biggest' song, everyone was going crazy singing and the atmosphere was indescribable

    Viva la Vida Remix Interlude - everyone in the whole arena was waving their mobiles around, that was an amazing sight

    Politik - the usage of strobe lights was really great, everyone going mental jumping up and down was a bonus

    Lovers in Japan - possibly my favourite song off the album, the butterfly confetti just added to the mood

    Death and All His Friends - everyone shouting out those last lines, absolutely epic

    The Scientist - my second favourite ballad (behind Amsterdam), it was amazing how the band entered at different times and eventually all played together

    Life in Technicolor ii - the last song of the night, and such a great one to finish off with; the multicoloured 'VIVA' at the end was preetty (it's my computer background now)

    Overall it was amazing night and one that I'll probably remember forever.

    Thank you so much for the videos! I've been watching them as you've been uploading them. :)

    Out of interest, did you get Strawberry Swing, Violet Hill, and/or Politik?

    Thanks! :D

    i got politik [awesome song]; but i took a rest during cemeteries of london, violet hill, death and all his friends and strawberry swing. i regret not videoing strawberry swing- great song-but i got quite a good vid of it in berlin in sept, it's up on my youtube channel [also my forum ID photo on the left of this comment is from my vid].
    i used to regret not taking a camera to a gig, then not videoing the full song, then not enough songs, now i regret not getting all the songs! :angry:
    lol, actually i'm pretty happy, security was pretty tight at Acer Arena, you had to empty your pockets and they even printed on the tkt that videoing was not permitted :D
