Coldplay Live Review – Singapore Indoor Stadium, Singapore (23rd March 2009)

Coldplay played the Singapore Indoor Stadium this evening as their Viva La Vida tour continues into the Middle East. No setlist surprises… but a lot of reviews, photos and goodies thanks to the Coldplayers that went, including entry to the soundchecks, and free tickets from Chris Martin.

Saw Chris, Jonny, Guy and Will. I was holding on to my insane Jonny banner so Jonny smiled at me before he ducked under the door. Chris, however, recognised me from the Sydney shows and approached me He said ‘Nice to see you again! and gave me a tiny hug He asked whether I had flown from Australia to Singapore, but I told him that I’m actually from here, and I had flown TO Australia instead. He then asked if I’m watching the show tonight. I said I had a ticket for myself, but my friends didn’t have because they couldn’t afford the money. He then said, ‘OK I’ll see what I can do, stay right here.’ as he turned to leave. [thanks but a dream]

eeeeeeeeeeeeeps! i got a setlist! one bagful of confetti, some merch, vids and bloody awesome time! the crowd was cool yeah? [thanks Fika]

uploading my photos now. my seats were quite high up so the pictures will all be from the same angle. will update soon! but first i must say the concert WAS BLOODY AWESOME! just mind blowing. i dare say even better than the last time they were here! [thanks joshuachan28]

Have to give it to Chris being so energetic and being able to go on just non-stop throughout the whole concert. At the point in time when Mercury Rev was performing the tour tees were already sold out at the merchandise booths. Was hoping to even just buy the display one but they didn’t want to sell it. They only had the programs left. Forget about the seats stood throughout the whole thing, left my seat the moment they started.The only thing throughout the whole night that i felt was quite irritating was when i was asked to go back to my seat twice by an usher during “Life in Technicolor” kinda spoiled it while i was enjoying the song. I was like “Please , come on i’m not gonna create trouble i just want to have fun”. She went but you’re not allowed to stand. Didn’t bother and just continued standing, the usher buzzed off after that. [thanks zempt]

More on this concert including reviews, videos and pictures here onwards.
