just come home! I'm really tired now, jumping, screaming....
It was awesome! :cool:

The pics I took was not so good, but I have some nice videos!
I was on the 4th row, and when Chris came close, I was only 2 meters away from him! :laugh3:

Most interesting thing was Chris asked Jonny to sing in front of 11000 strangers! :D

My mind is still "Viva-ing"!

It was .... AMAZING!!
I have been singing/screaming/dancing for 2 hours straight, but I just keep going on this rush of adrenalin!
The setlist was the same as Singapore ... Life in Technicolor gave me shivers, Chris Martin singing acoustic version of the Hardest Part made me cry, Viva la Vida with the whole crowd backing up was amazing, Lovers in Japan with all the konfetti coming from the ceiling was spectacular and The Scientist as the second-last was moving, beautiful and perfect.

They played the best version of God Put a Smile Upon Your Face I've ever heard. Sort of dance-style, improvisation, really really really cool!

I loved when they moved into the crowd and placed themselves on a small stage in the back performing Green Eyes, and WILL singing solo (can't remember what song ... i'm getting all confused now, sorry).

I loved it when Chris kept excusing his British accent to the people that didn't speak English ... only thing is, HK is pretty international. I wish I could remember everything he said, cause he was really funny! Anyone remember? :)


Ohhh... and the best part was ...


WHEN I TOUCHED WILL, GUY, JOHNNY AND CHRIS!! :D:D:D:D
One feet away from me. Seriously the craziest, best moment of my life.


Aaaarghhh can't wait to see them again this summer in Europe!!

Awww ... I would have loved to being there as well.

Been to Hong Kong in November for 7 days and I had the time of my life. It's an awesome city/spot and much greener than many people may think ;)

Glad that you had such a fantastic time and don't worry about the quality of the photos, we'll gladly take everything we can get :laugh3:

Hahaha yeah, that was great. Although you can barely call it singing ... it was more like ... a tone. hehe.

So where did that happen?? :stunned:
C-Stage or anywhere else or later when they left the arena (but given the time, Chris may still be there :laugh3: as it is only 0.20 am over there).

DETAILS PLEASE :D

I live in Hong Kong, that's why I went to the concert here :)

Okay I was placed on the ground in the first section, and when they went off-stage to go to the back-stage they moved through the crowd. and since I was (almost) right at the pathway they were walking I jumped over a few people and got to touch them and scream "I LOVE YOU GUYS!"

Way too excited at that moment. But oh well, it's Coldplay so why not? ;)

Believe it or not, but I have to get up for a history class in about 5½ hours. The adrenalin from tonight will hopefully get me through it! :D

It was the most amazing concert I've experienced.. and Chris and team showed why they are the best live act ever!

What was touching was the way the band moved to the other end of the auditorium to perform in the middle of the people who had the cheapest tics.

So gratituous! And so much fun! Hong Kong rocked! The audience was very very knowledgeable about Coldplay's songs and cheered and sang along.

God Put A Smile Upon Your Face, Viva La Vida, The Scientist.. honestly, each and every verse he sang was magic!

Did they have a press conference before the concert? Didn't read any newspaper report on their arriving into HK and stuff like that..??!?
