LIT the best gig opener they have

After seeing clips from MSG with LIT opening, with that light show and that atmosphere, I think it's definitely the best opener they have. Certainly more gut-wrenching than Square One and just more creative than Politik as the opening track to a gig.

Anyone disagree?

I dunno:\, hard to beat Politk. But I guess this could be playing as they come up on stage instead of the organ or sound effect thing. Then theyll all come in together with the "Whooaaa" and the show will be underway. Then they could go right into Cemeteries, then Politik;)

Having seen it twice now I agree, it's an amazing opener!

The slight drawback is that the song's so short, and they come on and play along only with the second part of it, so more or less as soon as they appear it's over! I'd really like them to come on, take a round of applause, and then go on to play the whole thing.

that I would love to see :dance: The intros on the AROBTTH tour were the best intros so far. I'll have to wait and see what I think of Life In Technicolor, another 6 months to go

Their openings are always great. You can't beat Politik or Square One though. ;)

And I like how Chris sings Politik live, he makes it extra dramatic.

it's a brilliant album opener, but it's not entirely live and I just don't think there is anything that can stand up to politik.

Politik is the perfect Encore opener...

Ill wait til I see LIT as an opener before I judge but hard to beat the clock countdown and lights of square one.

LIT as opener?

LIT is probably a good opener for the show. If they open with this when I see them in DC, I would like to see them jam out and lengthen the pinnacle another 8 or 16 counts. I miss hearing some good ass jamming from Coldplay like in spies (hopefully some of the new songs will fix that). August 3 in DC is going to be the breaking of my Coldplay-live-virginity... so pumped. About Politik: It's one of my favorite Coldplay songs and seems flawless as an opener, but it would be sick as the first encore song.

i think that Politik is one of the best "firestarters" in music at the moment. but they used that to open basically every show of the rush of blood tour so i think that they should start of with LIT then lead into God put a smile. i agree that politik would be awesome as a encore starter.

It's a good opener but I think, as chris doesn't sing through the song, they should play it with pretty low lights so you can't quite see them, specially chris then go to square one (instead of violet hill) just like in the past tour, with chris reamining hidden until the volume goes up

I think it is absolutely amazing! does anyone think that when the "official" tour starts they will lengthen the song with lyrics?

edit: i was right again, but it needs to be longgggggeeeerrrrrrr

Yep best opener too. Pure magic when the intro gets going and the lights slowly emerge along with the band behind this curtain! In Glasgow it was awesome, but I need to see it again live. The adrenalin was immense!
