I saw him at Glasto, it was a great show :nice:

It helps that I know and like about 7 or 8 of his songs, but I think most people will enjoy him regardless of knowing his stuff.... he puts on a really entertaining show, and he also samples a lot of other well known music inbetween his songs and stuff....

:)

I can't wait to see Jay-Z and I think it's a brilliant idea. It's another example of Coldplay thinking outside the box and surprising us.

Who wants to see another Coldplay-lite guitar band? Yawn...

Awwful, hideous, vile. I'd watch it probably, but my thought is that it is such a mis-match that it is not recoverable. The audiences do not match in any way, Jay Z fans arent going to want to see Coldplay. Maybe its an evil scheme to increase their already gaudy attendence and sales records.

I'm really excited about Jay-Z, it'll be the ideal warm-up music for my old bones so I'll be as supple as a snake come the main event :p

I watched his Glasto set and even though I didn't enjoy it and I still don't like his music, I can imagine his set will get the crowd going big time!!! The only problem I have with it is when the guys perform Lost, guess who will ruin it?

From an audience of four to 25,000...


Guitarist Jim Machin (second left), from Canterbury, pictured with his band the Domino State who are supporting Coldplay

He once performed in front of four students in his school common room.

Now guitarist Jim Machin is preparing to take to the stage at the 25,000 capacity O2 Arena in London as support act for Coldplay.

Jim, a former pupil of Canterbury's Simon Langton Boys’ School, plays in the band Domino State.

He said: "If only a 10th of the crowd are in their seats when we’re on it will still be the biggest crowd we’ve played to by a long shot."

The concert on Sunday, December 14, is a sell-out with tickets being touted online for hundreds of pounds.

Domino State’s appearance means there will be a Canterbury presence in both acts on the bill, as the headliners’ bass player Guy Berryman attended Kent College.

But the local connection is not how the band landed the gig.

"We know Coldplay’s guitarist Jonny Buckland through a family link although I must have seen Guy around in Canterbury," Jim said.

"We got a text from Jonny asking us if we felt like playing the O2. And after a deliberation of about 0.2 nanoseconds we decided it might not be a bad gig."

Scusi, no doubt they will be doing more gigs around London & the UK in the New Year if that helps... Keep a eye on their My Space at http://www.myspace.com/thedominostate.

Thanks, trouble is I live in Cornwall so it's not so easy, it would have been brilliant to see Coldplay and DS at the same time! I already look at their Myspace and I found out the other week that they performed at the pub in Herts practically opposite my parent's house back in April!!
