Michie's Mega Review Pt. 5

A little more to come. :D
hopw can there still be more after that amazing review?


I had a blast. Weeeee.

Glad you had such an amazing time :D


Great review Mich.....now get with the porn uploading. :D
some people are so impatient :p


I spent the entire weekend in bed with the flu - my boyfriend wanted to cancel or sell my ticket... if it had been any other band I'd have stayed in bed but I'd been looking forward to this so much.

This was my fifth Coldplay concert and I have to say it was by far the best. When I saw them during the X & Y album, they seemed to be a band kinda going through the motions. Last night was just four guys having the time of their lives. They all seemed so up for it - as were the crowd! I've had my fair share of moans about Liverpool audiences in the past, but last night they sang their hearts out - I did too when I wasn't coughing my guts up!

Highlights for me included In My Place - it's always been my favourite song but because I had such an awesome seat, I got to see Jonny up close - he's transformed from the shy musician I saw way back in the early days. He was feeding off the crowds energy so much. I was sat right infront of the little runway to the left of the stage. Jonny came to do his thing then Chris joined him, by doing a massive jump towards him... for a split second there was this look of panic on Chris' face "Shit, I'm going to knock him over"... he somehow managed to pull back and leave Jonny safe to play that beautiful riff.

Yellow was awesome - wasn't expecting the balloons. It was fun to see the looks on peoples faces who'd clearly never been to a Coldplay concert before.

Strawberry Swing was brilliant too. I know one or two people have been disappointed with it live, and I've seen clips myself that were a little underwhelming but they totally have that number sussed now and I couldn't help but laugh at the "nipples" in the magic balls... Coldplaying.com was never far from my mind.

I could go on and on, but I'm still in the grip of the 'flu. I will say that 42 was brill - it's a song I've never been a huge fan of, and that Will sounded great on Death Will Never Conquer. I hope it's not the last time we get to hear him take a lead vocal.

The absolute highlight, however, had to be Viva La Vida. The crowd went absolutley mental and maybe it was just me, but that song actually sounded louder than all the others. Everyone just had so much fun.

I really shouldn't have gone and I'm paying for it this morning, the flu is worse than ever, but it truly was a night I'll never forget.

Finally I know what to put on the back of my postcard!

Glad you had a great time even if you were poorly. Hope you're feeling better soon :kiss:


The capacity of the Liverpool Echo Arena is 8000 tonight. 2044 of them made the Health and Education For All pledge, in just under 3 hours, thanks to our incredible Oxfam campaigners. For many of them, it was their first time volunteering with Oxfam. That’s a pretty good first time campaigning, by any account.. 1 in 4 signed up. Wow.
beat ya :p posted this last night whilst you were in bed :lol:


I love this pic its ace :D




Thanks for all the reviews & piccies guys. Liverpool have stepped up to the mark & proven that UK fans are just as good as the rest of the world!! They've also shown that us Northerners are the best of the UK fans :D (no pressure for Thurs & Fri in Manchester :lol: ) The Brummies & the Glaswegians have been rather quiet so far :cry:


Check out the WIki thread :D

HAHAHAHA. I still get nasty comments on youtube for those videos!!!
people really expect us to stay quiet for their own amusement while we watch those concerts?? :thinking:

But I do admit that my yelling during politik is just plain annoying. :blush:
but my crying during fix you was overall seen as adorable (or people are just big fat liars) :laugh4:

they should appreciate that you're sharing your stuff...

who cares if you were screaming or crying.. you bought a ticket and you deserved to do whatever you wanted there (ok... not wathever but still :p )

I knooow.
Like, I put a video of LiT ii on youtube. it's fairly good quality, the song is from beginning to end and a stupid git comes and says "that girl singing is horrible", and I sang like... 5 lines, just coz I didn't want to completely ruin the vid!!!

I was happy I made to 3 different concerts because what I have noticed happening often to me is that I'm so into filming the concerts and trying to make it reasonably 'viewable' that I end up spending more time doing so than actually enjoying the gig properly.
At least this time I managed to fully enjoy Coldplay without really caring (much) and on this last gig, that I was so close, I just took more than 100 pics and almost didn't film at all...
(poor Mimi on the other hand has to take up with my screaming on her vids... :laugh4:)

Postcards, finally from somewhere you can actually SEE Chris playing!!


And my all time fav video by anyone who films it (but this one was me!! and listen to how well behaved I was) because it's just awesome: Lovers in Japan

don't see why ppl say that UK crowds are less enthusiastic because this thread clearly proves just the opposite!!!
