yay Kara!! Sounds like we needed someone to show that UK Coldplay fans can party, and you stepped up admirably :D

Thanks for the review :)

the media is rubbish this morning. where's the first night of the uk tour reports from the nationals, and where are the local reports (I know its only Yorkshire, but still!!!!)?

I know, there was a photo agency there so you'd think there would be at least one report.

Maybe the papers are too busy speculating about American billionaires to write about something that actually happened :p

Awesome night - band on top form and, as previously said, looked like they were really enjoying themselves.

We were sat/stood about 3/4 way back 5 rows up the tier and it just seemd that most of the crowd were happy just to stand and watch. No real singing or moving about which dissappointed a little. I guess thats what happens when the floor area is seated. :(

Thats my only complaint of the whole night. If they're half as good at Wembley next year then its going to be an amazing day! :)

Back!! That was a crazy car ride home, haha... lots of very loud music, fog, and tiredness :wacko:
thanks to Jen for my ticket :nice: It was in Block C, Row 22... good view for the Trouble/Postcards/GPASUYF and Talk :dance:

So cool to finally meet Maaaaarrrrri :kiss:

It felt strange to be behind rows and rows of people who did nothing and didnt sing for most songs.... but hey. I musn't be downbeat! The most amazing moment for me had to be when I pulled out all the stops dancing to Politik in these said rows of quietness...... :lol:
twas a beautiful moment!! :heart:

I also loved it when Chris decided to not play the Hardest Part and play Trouble instead...wahey!!!! :dance:

I took a few music clips here and there with my mobile phone, but unfortunately my proper camera is kinda broken, so I don't have any photos or videos :disappointed: Sorry :(

It was a good night! and I think the boys really enjoyed it too, I could see them having a smile and laugh a lot of the time. I just wish they threw in a few more oldies :nice: or a few of the new Prospekt's March stuff. Maybe in time........

EDIT: my only crappy photo...Im sorry it's so bad: http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v301/crazyduckette/DSC00558.jpg
ooh well!!! need to buy a new camera or something. This one is from my phone, and zoomed in = rubbish.
Shows you where I was though :)
Kara, if you got these non-singers all the way in the front, imagine me, all the way in the back. I had a guy beside me that kept asking: "so, do you also know this song?"

And NO ONE one block 212 wanted to stand up. people were SITTING! I couldn't believe my eyes (I stood up anyways. and a guy threw beer on me. i didn't care).

But The concert was amazing. and when Chris decided NOT to sing The Hardest part was probably the high moment of it!!!

I have pics (few) and loads of videos (although from VERY far away) - which as always contain my amazing singing skills on it (sorry for that) - that I'll put here as soon as I upload!!!

And Kara, it was aaaaaawesome to meet you!!!!! Our little surreal foggy night, with the spanish and their picnic, listening to soundcheck and a crazeh drive home in the end!!!! :kiss::kiss:

Im sorry to hear about that...sucks. This is why standing is better!! because people who are passionate about the band can all have a great time together singing along at the front, while people who are less inclined to sing and stuff can stand further back! It's annoying :/ but I didnt care about people throwing looks my way for singing Jay Z 'Give it to Me' LOOOOL

so here is the ultimate shitty phone recording..... of Chinese Sleep Chant

that scream at the beginning isnt me :lol:

I agree Trouble was a definite highlight!! :dance: :dance: :dance: woooohooo!

Awww I forgot the Spanish people, with their vodka and their ham and bread, and little knife!

What a night at Sheffield Arena I was lucky enough to be just 8 rows from the front and feet away from the sides that they used.
Like everyone else the highlight of the night just had to be Trouble (The first Coldplay song I ever heard)
After that it had to be Fix You (Made the hairs on my neck stand on end) All you lucky ones that are still waiting to see there shows in the UK the wait is nearly over and believe me you wont be dissapointed if they are on the same form as last night at the arena boy what a treat!!

What the heck some people grumbled about lack of changes in the set list but after a two year wait for them back on English territory (Excluding the warm ups and Brixton) I was more than grateful to hear anything.

The down side had to be the support acts AFJNR what can you say about a bloke who comes on stage in an indian headress abd performes all the way thu with a plastic Captain America shield on his arm , two young lady backing singers doing occasional stupid dances and making noises (Oh!! was told it was singing)

Then after that having to put up with 40 minutes of some DJ making just a load of noise which was totally and utterley pointless with even more pointless images on a screen.

Stay in the bar till just before Coldplay come on save your energies for the boys YOU WILL NOT BE DISSAPOINTED:laugh3:

The voices in the backgrounds of the videos are too funny!
Damn I wish my camera wasn't so dodgy...I could have got some good vids like Brixton :/

Hey Kirk! :nice:

You going to Wembley too?! That's great! There's like 500 of us from here going (well not really that many, but over 70 of us :dance:)

Glad you had a good time :D
