    Ah, guys. Bummer.

    Your sister's turning down a Coldplay concert? The friend I'm going with on March 3rd almost couldn't because it's her dad's birthday -- thankfully she can make it.

    Yeah... I wanted to go on the 4th I told her before tix went on sale. Instead she's going with me on the 5th because I have a spare standing ticket and my dad is forcing me to use it ._>

    Could you not go because it's her birthday, or because you had no one to go with? It would be great for you to go on his birthday. Hopefully lots of videos and pictures will be taken, and I'll try and write a greatly detailed re-count of the night.

    None of my other friends could pay their way and I had to take her, and I said that I'd really prefer to go on the 4th, and she asked me why. Of course I couldn't say something like that because she'd just think it stupid and just said no and that she would go on the 5th.

    Ugh. I hope so... thanks for the re-count offer though :uneasy:

    Yeah, I can understand that. Bummer about the friends, too. Whilst I'd rather go to a concert with anyone rather than alone, I don't think anything could compare to going with a fellow fan. Someone else who gets all the excitement and hype. The closest I've got to that is on the 3rd night with a friend who likes Coldplay but doesn't actually love them.

    Still, it'll be awesome either way.

    Oh. Still have no idea. I'm back at uni next week so it may be a tad busy, but interested sure! If not beforehand, after the gigs?
