Really? I thought the the crowd were pretty good IMO, we were all up on our feet in 110! I couldn't see anyone sitting down at all tbh. Plus loved the wooah ohhh's all the way out the arena, in the queues to get in the tube station and then on the platforms! Also the woman on the tannoy (sp?!) system on the tube was hilarious. Talking about if the two men running up the wrong side of the escalator hurt themselves they wouldn't help them, but if they hurt anyone else they would be liable! Brilliant! lol

Highlight tonight Jonny wearing reindeer ears and the others santa hats during Jingle bells

think it was almost better than monday though can't split them. I had the clearest head on view and wasn't destracted this time by a certain arse off Mr Buclkland this time so could really take it all in


for the loudest cheer bit instead of left vs right we had boys vs girls, Jonny was in charge of the boys (chris called this the Brave Heart Roar) and Guy incharge of the girls ( He called this the Take That squeal) to which Guy laughed and most probably blushed

for Jonnys solo in IMP Chris introduced him along the lines as Coldplays version of Slash

trying to upload vids, managed one but YT very slow tonight, only down side were some annoying people who decided to get drinks during at least 3 songs I was recording. Chinese sleep chant which I had to delete because they knocked me leaving and coming back and they did it again during LIJ:confused:..they seemed more interested in the drink than the band and didn't give anyone else any consideration plus they knocked over my bottle of water..

other than that it was perfect. Can't wait to here Politik in that Stadium next year

well, I guess i'm used to GA.. it's really disturbing.
and crowd only showing emotions by clapping in between songs only, not that exciting to me.. not that much singing where I was and not much dancing either (not talking about Pete.. he was on fire :lol:) but still better than Sunday's crowd.

btw, we were in the same block and didnt even know..

edit : the screaming comp 'men vs women' was a GOOOOOOD one !! never screamed THAT loud in my whole life ! all for Guy.. :rolleyes: :lol:

*takes moment to imagine JB in Christmas hat*

and nothing else:sneaky:

:santa:

:wacky:

Woot! :D


My quick-very-R-#42-as-usual review before taking an eurostar early in the morning :

Useless afternoon waiting for them to arrive, we've been told quite quickly that they had arrived earlier for a soundcheck though (we thus new we'd have a special song).
Got told before the beginning of the concert that flags were forbidden in that venue... WHAT A JOKE. This actually worried me and I felt quite bad at the beginning of the show though I did wave my VLV one a lot.
Anyway decided to stand up right at the beginning of LiT and luckily people in my block stood up too, so I spent the concert jumping and dancing, which help when you want to enjoy it (not like on sunday...).
Saw R#42 working hard before the beginning of the show and started to think I could have thrown him my banner, though I was too far away... then during VLV remix, desperate to see no one was enjoying that important part of the show, I decided to run toward the roadies area next to the stage on Guy's side (where R#42 was) where I threw my banner randomly... it landed in a roadie box XD
Guess they'll find it as a Christmas gift ahahaha.
Anyway I really enjoyed the show (better atmosphere in my opinion, at least in my area).
Quite good performance from the band, Chris reminded everyone 2 times that he seemed quite disappointed by the Londoners : changed some lyrics to something similar to ''London crowd is miles away from what a coldplay crowd should be'' (wasn't exactly that, and I don't remember during which song it was, but it was at the very beginning of the show... we'll find out with some videos I guess). Then during In My Place (as far as I'm remember, not sure again) he emphasized A LOT the ''come on and SING TO ME''... I think that worked quite well. Happy me. (though I'm not doing all seated venue anymore).
I tried to get closer to the C stage during Hardest Part in order to leave London with a clear picture of Chris' face in my head (ahah, didn't manage to see him on sunday, being in the upper tier), but was asked to come back to my seat after 20 seconds hehe.
We left the venue around midnight, I'm sure the band was still there and I guess we could have meet them by leaving later but we had no idea how we would have managed to come back after midnight, we thus had to stop stalking (which made me saaaaad).

Anyway really great evening, compared to sunday... :)

HAHA! You are awesome!!! :thumbsup: I have a very hilarious image of you running down there and flinging your banner with zest! Bravo!

Sorry you didn't get to finish stalking. :cry: But thanks for your review!

Great little details in your review! What's this about Mr. Buckland's arse? Were you behind them at the C stage the night before? :wink3:


Mmm... yum.

:wink3:

Seconded! :wink3:
