    This is an odd request. My friend works at a trade magazine and is working on an article about freight companies that handle concert transportation. The particular company for tour is X-Freighted. He needs photos showing the trucks for the concert gear at least the crew setting up the rigging, moving around the boxes, etc. Photo credit can be given. Thanks if anyone has any photos like that (btw, he said his co-worker already got Bruce pics from the Bruce board).

    Does Chris' dedication to the Bidens mean he's Illuminati?

    Coldplay // 8.6.16 // Philadelphia (Lincoln Financial Field)

    I. Soundcheck

    We arrived at the stadium at about 4:45pm. Walking up, I could hear Chris’s voice. Naturally, I took my phone out and the recording madness began…

    Ink (sort of) – not sure what Chris is singing here, but you can hear the Ink guitar riff every now and then

    One I Love

    Mobile Link: https://youtu.be/Kh9HeZXVaMM

    It was so cool to hear AROBTTH and One I Love – technically I can now say I’ve heard the band perform them live! Just not seen them perform it. :p And some of what they played I didn’t recognize, so if anyone can tell what those are (if not just random jamming) please let me know so I can update the video descriptions! :D

    We met this one young guy who was here for his first Coldplay concert. He'd been a fan during MX tour but wasn't able to go to a show. He ended up having to leave to put his backpack into a locker, but we actually ran into him again inside. I didn't get his name or anything, but hope he had a great time!

    II. Getting Upgraded In A Different Way

    Some of you might have seen the outfit I made for this concert. I actually got quite a few compliments on my shoes before the show. When I showed up at LFF, I was all decked out with bracelets, glowsticks – I even brought my Mylo Xyloto doll back for the action (with a new white Xyloband and Love pin)! We made sure to stop by the Oxfam table and sign the Stand as One petition as well (and of course I went for the yellow bracelet). :D

    [​IMG]

    My friend Maddie came with me to the concert, because the person I was supposed to go with originally couldn’t make it. However, we had seats way up in the nosebleeds and she has a definite fear of heights (which she thought she might be able to work through like she’s done in the past). We walked around the 100s section for a while, but even down there she was panicking a lot. The heat did very little to help.

    We went up the escalator (because there weren’t any elevators up to the 200s) but only made it one flight up to the Club seats and we had to stop because her anxiety got really bad. One of the staff (didn’t get his name) came over and asked if she was OK and if there was anything he could do, like ask his supervisor if they had anything available in a lower section. So we sat down and after a few minutes this woman named Liz came over and she helped us exchange our tickets for seats in 114!!

    [​IMG]

    This was actually a really great spot, because we were on the end so no one blocked our view of any of the stages, and there was no one behind us so standing the entire show wasn't an issue (Maddie didn't stand the entire time, but I sure did). So, shoutout to the LFF staff for being so kind and helpful. I was worried Maddie would have to watch/listen from the outside where they sell the food like she said she was going to do. :|
    I had hoped maybe we could get upgraded (like I did during MX tour) but neither of us expected to be upgraded in this way. :lol: And once we were in the process of having our tickets changed Maddie was able to calm down and the rest of the night was fine. We never made it up to the 200s, so I have no idea how high our original seats even were. :p

    By the time we got to our seats, Foxes was already on. Both Foxes and Alessia Cara were really good. I felt bad, because I had to get up a few times during their sets to get some water (from the fountain, you know, for free – more on this later from Chris :p), but it was just so hot and I figured it was better to skip out than to die from dehydration.

    Well, then soon enough (although it didn’t feel soon in the moment), the lights went down and Charlie Chaplin came over the speakers…

    III. Coldplay Takes the Stage

    It turns out there are very few songs I didn’t take video of. But you’ll probably see from the quality of the camera work that I mostly just held my phone and let it do all the work. So when Chris said, “When Will starts drumming, the hands go up!” my hands went up, even if I was holding my phone. :p

    There were a few songs that the audience kinda quieted down for, but it felt like most of the time every single person in the stadium was super into it. Chris will always say to audiences that they’re the best audience the band has played for, but in this instance he could be telling the truth. ;) ("Maybe I'm biased, but I'm definitely right")

    The Scientist Singalong into Birds

    Mobile Link: https://youtu.be/Az2Y2Wedi_w


    The singalong was great, during both The Scientist and Fix You (which I didn’t get video of, so if anyone has it please post it! We all sounded great for those two seconds when Chris stopped playing the piano.)

    Birds was probably the song I was most excited for. It has easily become my favorite off of AHFOD and it holds up just as well live. I might have been the only person in my section who knew any of the words, but that didn’t stop me from singing every one of them.
    By the way, that shriek in Birds was not me but kudos to whoever it was. I’m with you on that one.

    Always In My Head

    Mobile Link: https://youtu.be/S2w7XIRun2c


    It was strange for me to realize during the concert that despite having heard live versions of the songs from Ghost Stories, I hadn’t actually heard any of them live in person. Always In My Head is such a great song – and it really fits this past week for me, waiting for this concert: “I think of you, I haven’t slept” :p

    Chris on Tailgating & Everglow

    Mobile Link: https://youtu.be/SyIpGEAitBc


    “I always wondered why everyone tailgated in Philadelphia and why you had so many parties. Then I saw the price of beer and water and I was like, ‘Oh, I see why everyone eats outside’… We’re in the wrong business, we should be selling water at football stadiums. We could make a fortune!”

    The Guest House // Amazing Grace & Don’t Panic

    Mobile Link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c50wkaM2di8


    For some reason, at 3:15 in that video there was a random/unsuccessful USA chant. It confused and amused me at the same time.
    But then the band went into Don’t Panic (3:27), and I got excited to hear Jonny sing. Chris did his usual stopping of the song to talk about how much Jonny doesn’t like singing (but likes talking about space :wacko:), then proceeded to make Jonny sing his part not one, but two more times. Jonny was laughing at the end of it. :wacky:

    Band Intro & In My Place & Til Kingdom Come (Request)

    Mobile Link: https://youtu.be/tvCCfqG0W5o


    Part of me wants to be bummed that the request song was Til Kingdom Come (was really hoping for A Message), but it was just so beautiful that I don’t honestly care that much. This was one of the only songs I didn’t sing along with, because I just wanted to hear Chris’s beautiful voice and the lovely music. :heart:

    And then it was over. I couldn’t believe how fast it went, but I was still channeling my inner Chris and just feeling very grateful to be there. :p My experience at this concert was very different from the other two I’ve been to, this being the first one where I was not at any point in front of the band on one stage or another, but it was still an incredible night. There's nothing quite like being in the same place as thousands of other people who are sharing in the Coldplay love. I’m looking forward to the next time I get to see them live, which hopefully will be sooner rather than later. :wacky:

    If you check the periscopes from coldplayings twitter I was actually really close to that person, at the beach now but I'll post it when I get home. This was way better than MX at Wells Fargo, and even though newplay isn't my first choice, there's no question that when it's live it's amazing. The crowd was really into it too, considering picking up tickets for made in America to see them again but i think I'm probably going to pass since it's a festival

    I might have missed this in a post but where can I get an audio recording of the Philly show Aug 6? It was my first Coldplay concert and was unlike anything I've ever experienced. I've been watching/listening to a recording on YouTube but the audio is inconsistent. Can anyone help a newbie out with this?

    I tried to record the audio on my phone but it's pretty dodgy. Just left the phone clipped to my hip the whole night so the crowd noise is really dominant. Because the phone was low it picked up people talking (?!?!) that thank goodness I couldn't hear myself since I was standing up/dancing. I haven't had a lot of time but I will try to clean it up in the next couple weeks and can share when I do.

    I did just get around to editing my photos from this show: https://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/albums/72157669967999494 ... they aren't my best but I love the colors and excitement and the memories they bring back. :)
    Also took videos of The Scientist and Amazing Day ... the picture isn't very good because my hands shake and they shake even more when I'm really excited or emotional. But the sound is pretty good and I still love them because I love reliving this night.

    I was really lucky to be able to see them in NJ twice as well as this show (all three magical shows), but seeing them in Philly was particular special because it's where I first saw them in 2008 and again in 2012. They've been an amazing constant in my life over the last 16 years and it's such a privilege to be able to see them live.
