    Luckily the rain was nowhere near as bad as last time. More like a teaser to make us all worry but then it stopped after a couple minutes. And according to the weather app on my phone there was a 0% chance of rain all night. Guess the app didn't realize there was a Coldplay concert going on or it would have upped the prediction!!

    Awww thank you!!! And thank you once again for giving my daughter your cross-stitch tour balloon necklace. You did a beautiful job making that too! It will have pride of place among our CP memorabilia at home. :)

    We got nosebleed seats in level 4 back corner. It was a great view but way too scary up there for us. Our fellow volunteer said he was on Level 2 and there were open seats next to him, so we wound up just left of stage facing it and under an overhang...stayed dry. We were on 2 for 2/3 of the show I think. I was deliriously tired by then!!

    SophiaM, your Periscopes are amazing!! I think during Magic is when we moved. We were on your side, but Level 2 last row under the overhang directly behind Chris. Boy in your broadcast you really see the rain. Did you catch what Chris said about the rain? All of his talking was muffled to me. You had seats I would have dreamed of!!

    After five years of trying, Thursday marked the first time I was able to see Coldplay twice on the same tour. Last year in St. Louis was the first - and I'll never forget it - but Chicago's open-air experience completely and utterly changed my perspective of the tour. I was sitting near the back-left of the field, and our view was considerably better than what I was expecting. My girlfriend had never seen them before, which meant I was trying to 'show off' them to her (even though she likes them a lot already). For the most part, my section was pretty mild and not doing much more than standing on the chairs, but at some point, everyone spilled out into the open areas and it turned into an amazingly cool little dance party.

    Now, mind you, I have had to make myself stop following the setlist (even though I know what'll be played), which meant I was trying to pinpoint exactly where the band would be for the C-stage. I vividly remember the C-stage being in the lower stands in St. Louis, and I knew they followed the same rule for most of the arena shows, but I wasn't thinking in a 'stadium mentality.' So, I'm running all over the field with my girlfriend saying, "THEY'RE TOTALLY GONNA BE RIGHT HERE! Just wait until you hear everyone scream and that's where they are!" Well, me being me, I hear the crowd behind us yelling and think, "Oh, they must be running around the crowd!" Nope. Instead, they were two sections over from my seats. We immediately ran back to the area everyone was crowded around in and we fought our way in to see them up close and fucking personal. The band was probably no more than 20 feet in front of us. Sure, In My Place is tired, but I didn't care at that point. I just stood there in awe and sang along. At some point some girl tried to stand on top of a chair directly in front of my girlfriend, so she goes, "UM, NO." and said girl looks at her all sorry-like, apologizes and moves over a bit.

    I'm so damn glad they played GPASUYF over Birds (even though it's in my Top 10 Coldplay songs), and I'll be the first to confess SJLT is considerably more enjoyable when you're seeing it in-person. The open-space-turned-dancefloor only grew as the night went on, despite the small amount of rain. One of my favorite moments was when Chris restarted Charlie Brown and told everyone to put their phones down and just focus on the show for one song. People went wild. The same happened with the abundance of messages for unity, love, and peace throughout the show. I think he speaks for most everyone when he talked about Charlottesville and Barcelona and all the chaos in the world. I don't know how they do it, but Coldplay manages to pull everyone in even if just for a few hours. It's really something special.

    I'm sorry! I just saw this. We were in D5 on the field. Great view!

    @lowlight10 can the mp3 download be viewed without the Samsung VR like a regular video? I was lucky to be at this concert too but some of my friends will love to watch this if they can. Or is that just an audio file? I think I just remembered what an mp3 is vs. mp4. I'm technologically challenged. LOL. Thanks!!!!!!

    This is just the audio extracted from the video capture. The full video is up on dime but is 11GB and you need Samsung VR to watch it properly. It can be played on other software but looks odd.

    Can you give link to this video? I'd like to download it for future use if I ever get a VR gear.

    Thanks, Sue! Sorry I missed you, I was looking for the booth but I couldn't find it! Soldier Field is huge! During Everglow, Chris was basically talking about how out of all of the concerts they have, it only rains in Chicago! He also had his speech about how we should all send and spread love to other places around the world like Charlottesville, Barcelona, Venezuela, etc. I thought the stream was better quality but I guess not. Some of the videos I shared on my twitter (@squirly7) were better quality but I'll make sure to post more in the coming days!

    Hi! I just saw this. Thanks for the reply. We ended up leaving at noon and then getting to Chicago by 5pm. Traffic wasn't too bad. Fortunately we booked a hotel right by grant park and there was a parking lot right across from the hotel. Also a walkable distance to the stadium. I agree with you.

    The south side didn't seem to good. Good thing my cousin warned me about it. We stopped for food and rest room in indiana and then just straight shot to Chicago. Good city, I just wish I was there for more than 1 night. Went home the day after the concert.

    Did you enjoy the concert ? :) it was amazing!

    Well that was worth waiting a year. Anyone who talked to me last summer remembers I missed St Louis because I was busy. I was scared I missed a last shot to see them. So glad I got to go. One of the best nights of my life. Thanks to everyone who helped me get information over the last year. It was great and I look forward to talking here more!
