Great show! Though, it seemed to be the sound was terrible, maybe it was just my section in the back. However, the lighting was incredible, thanks to the enclosed stadium and all the fog/smoke lingering. Made for an incredible laser show. Nice to see Phil brought on stage! Chris screwed up AOAL and restarted it. Jonny finally got to sing Don't Panic without Chris making him start all over again.

I have to say despite the nearby Texas Rangers game getting out at the same time, this was the easiest concert to leave. Quite a clash of fan bases though, baseball fans meet Coldplay fans lol.

Also, anyone else find it weird that they featured the Texas state flag instead of the US flag?

They do that tbh if there's a state flag for that state. I think they did it in Arizona as well

I didn't think the sound was terrible, there was a lot of reverb but where I was ( on the 50 yard line in 235) it wasn't too bad.

Loved doing the "Phil"

and the request song is...In My Place.
But hey, they played Don't Panic before it and Chris didn't actually interrupt the song for people to cheer Jonny!

Ok clearly I am showing my ignorance here because I am not american haha. My bad
haha, it's ok! it was something that i thought was weird, like we all have individual flags so why would they use the state flags for some and not others?

i mean Arizona's flag is really the only one that looks good so that i can understand :p

Maybe they got inspiration from the twitter account we use for the I Ran Away Live 2016 project :)

if only they were inspired to play the song :p
Yeah, I know. 3 concerts left in the US Tour leg...
I'm holding on because I'm stubborn but it is so disappointing that they even didn't like a tweet or an Instagram post or let us know that they saw it.

AT&T stadium is horrible for concerts. I got very lucky this time around, because we had floor seats (Sec J, Row 8 - 2 seats from the catwalk), and for where I was sitting the sound was not terrible. I got a couple of songs recorded (one on my phone and 3 on my camera) and they all sound decent. The show was amazing!!! I was able to get a few good pictures (always hard with Chris because he's never still), and I inadvertently captured a crotch shot of Chris. (*Note - I am not especially tech savvy, but I will try to figure out how to load some videos and pictures.....eventually)

PS - the Texas flag thing is probably a result of "knowing your audience". Since Texas used to be it's own country, we are allowed to fly our state flag at the same height as the US flags. (if places fly both on separate poles, they will be the same height, if the same, US flag is flown higher). The TX flag is probably the most recognizable state flag of all the states in the US. It could be our pride **cough arrogance cough**
