Coldplay Review: Vector Arena, Auckland 19 March



To be honest, I'm not a huge Coldplay fan, but they undoubtedly have one of the best stage productions I've ever experienced. Coldplay have truly perfected the art of a sound and light show.

The visuals were stunning and these guys really know how to look after their fans, with big crystal clear screens halfway down the Arena, walkways on both sides of the main stage and a set played right up in amongst the cheap seats. And you'd have to be a narc not to love the yellow balloons.

The entire show was wonderfully choreographed, and the production values for the background videos were amazing. I may not be a died in the wool Coldplay fan, but for my money it was a great show, and Lost is going straight into high rotation on the iPod. Will Champion one of those unique percussionists with perfect timing.

Maybe it's just me, but the sound seems to have improved dramatically since the first concerts at Vector Arena. Anyone else think so?

The spelling of technicolor and "butterfly release song" makes me cry :cry:.

Yeah me too.

I'm glad they didn't change it or I would be freaking jealous. Lol.
