It was just as they ran past us. Nothing major! :laugh3:

I've taken my videos the wrong way round. Any ideas how I can flip them?
I don't know, but I can stand on my head or what ever it takes to see them so just upload. :lol:

I know this won't make a lot of people happy but I gotta admit I was really disappointed with last night's gig. That was the 5th time I've seen Coldplay and was the worst by a country mile. The word that my boyfriend (who's a bigger fan than me) used when we left was "pantomime". I wish they would concentrate on singing the songs instead of all the other stuff they seem to fill their shows with these days. I felt like they didn't really play an awful lot of songs. And the songs they did play, especially the older tracks, they didn't do justice to. What the f happened to Politik. One of my fave live tracks ever, and last night's version was horrendous. They played prob about 95 mins, but if you took out all the constant yakking and hideous Take That covers (why?) it probably just scraped in at 1hr 15mins. Was so gutted cos I'd been gagging for this gig for ages. Had originally got fri tix cos I thought I'd be desperate to go back for the Sat gig. Hmm, think that's put me off going back unless they reign themselves in (yes I'm talking to you Chris) and get back to the music. I'd been watching the Live 2003 DVD to get me in the mood, and that gig last night was nothing in comparison. Sorry, I know a lot of people won't agree. But it's the first gig I've gone to in yonks and felt cheated. Makes me feel ok now that I can't afford Hampden tix, doubt I'll be missing much based on that performance. Will's got a lovely voice but, one of the highlights of the night. :\

[Coldplay Oxfam Blog] Glasgow SECC - Take Two.

I’m sitting in the same little room as I was a few days ago, writing another blog, about another Coldplay show. We have had some adventures on this tour, playing 3 different countries in 3 days.. it’s not quite the same adventure when you return to the same city, but it was another great show in Glasgow. Oxfam’s brilliant bunch of volunteers, between them, got 1526 Health and Education For All pledges, to add to the thousands of others on the Coldplay tour.

Another noisy crowd greeted the band tonight. Needing little encouragement to sing every word and clap to the beats (even if they weren’t always in time with the band). Chris Martin had to tell everyone to stop clapping at the start of ‘The Hardest Part’ (which he dedicated to his haircut), as he couldn’t figure out the timing. He got it in the end, and the clapping continued anyway.

1 in 5 people at the show tonight, made the pledge. They took a few moments to chat to one of our campaigners and put their name down. To support more children having the chance to go to school. To take action to put pressure on governments to provide affordable healthcare for all.

After they were finished doing that, they went to watch the Coldplay show. Stamped their feet, clapped their hands, chanted chords and sung words. It’s a great crowd here, and I won’t forget it in a hurry. I’m sure the band won’t either. We head South tonight. Back to England. Next stop Manchester. Two nights. Two shows. 40 Oxfam volunteers ready and waiting. Plus, another 28′000 or so Coldplay fans..

Hi there my first post in here!
a nice forum...
Yesterday was my 1st concert for The viva la vida tour, and my second concert for coldplay (1st time in france during x&y)

So good to see them again!

I don't from where to begin, they were f* good.

Highlights: all these balloons during yellow? it reminded me 3 years ago...
or the encore with Politik?
I was jumping and dancing alone in the very first row, and a guard came and warned me, i'd been asked to go and sit in my place!! :D

I can't remember when was my favorite moment, there were so many...

Should I now go to London...?

PS: i managed to pick up a setlist, but it was not one of those in the stage, a guard gave me one, and it appears that there are some mistakes on it.... :veryangry2: i couldn't wait more, i had to run to catch the last bus to Edinburgh...

We usually get Chris on C stage, but I want me some WILLLLL.:D But I always forget. So THANKS!!!:kiss:

Not really actually, after LITii they left the stage and as an outro we could hear The Escapist.
And then it was all SECC trying to get out of the venue, it was already 11!
We had to run with my friend from the venue until the train station to catch the train until Central station, and then ran again until the coach station. We arrived just 1minute before the bus left!
But that was a great nite!

In the setlist i picked up there is a song they didn't play (?) which is "Lips like Sugar", what is it?
I hated yesterday when we were not even allowed to ask to the technicians to have a setlist from the stage . It was more like ok now just get out!!
