Mansfield review: Coldplay hits Comcast Center

MANSFIELD - Coldplay brought their Viva la Vida tour to the Comcast Center Monday night and showed why they are probably the hottest act in music today, writes The Sun Chronicle.

Lead singer Chris Martin was in full control throughout the show and played the audience like one of the finely tuned strings on his guitar. The Brit quartet stormed through a strong sampling of their huge CD "Viva la Vida" as well as many of the hits from their relatively brief career. They rocked the main stage, held court from a side stage, and even went to the back of the lawn section of the venue for three numbers.

After they were done, no one could have possibly felt cheated on a gorgeous August night with a brilliant orange moon keeping watch overhead. It was all reminiscent of Bono, The Edge and company as they ascended to the height of their career and conquered the music world.

The show kicked off with the standing room only section in front of the stage swaying to the strains of the "Blue Danube Waltz," which many of the fans seemed to know would soon usher in Coldplay. The band took the stage and launched into the incredibly catchy "Life in Technicolor," the first track from the "Viva la Vida" CD.

From there, it was a quick transition into the equally foot-tapping "Clocks" as multicolored laser lights shot over the audience. The band played in front of a huge tapestry with the revolutionary "Viva la Vida" CD cover and several giant white globes hanging overhead.

After "Clocks," Martin belted out "In My Place" as he danced and jumped across the stage in his ragtag soldier's outfit, looking almost like a marionette. Then it was onto "Yellow," a huge hit for the band made all the more memorable by the scores of large yellow balloons that somehow emerged from the Comcast Center audience and bounced their way across the sea of hands.

Playing four hits right off the bat, Coldplay obviously wanted to get the audience immediately into delerium, and succeeded. They went on to perform an incredible version of "42" from "Viva la Vida" with black and white silk screens adding a nice effect. Martin turned "Fix You" into a sing-along, letting the audience sing much of the enduring hit, then performed a stirring rendition of "Perfect Day."

On the tiny side stage, Coldplay performed the hit "Talk" then Martin went into a relatively sedate piano solo before returning to the stage and launching into the title track from "Viva la Vida" with the audience shouting out the chorus without cue.

Martin tossed multicolored sticks into the crowd as he pulsated through "Lost!" - another big hit from "Viva la Vida" - then Coldplay made their way through the audience and to the back of the lawn where they performed "Green Eyes," a number written and sung by the drummer Will (the name of which I did not catch), and Michael Jackson's "Billie Jean." The gesture to the late pop superstar was touching, though it was pretty obvious from the start that Chris Martin is no Jacko. He did get points for his falsetto, though.

the sun's coming up...

THE BEST DAY OF MY LIFE!!
a review (with pics and video) by Brooke


also, i apologize in advance for all the screaming/bad singing/bad filming in the videos. i was excited. :p the pics aren't so great, so i might try to take some screenshots from the videos and post those later. :)

oh geez, the videos are doing some funky thing where they speed up in certain parts... will have to fix that later as well. :(
this was my first Coldplay concert and it was AMAZING!!!

we (my two sisters Olivia and Harley and myself) arrived at the venue around 2, and there were only a few girls in line at that time. as it got later and later, the line of people in the middle became huge, but we were off to the side, so when they finally let us up to the doors we were almost in first.



we had lawn seats, so as soon as we entered the section i searched for the c-stage. it was way over to the left (looking at the stage) and we managed to snag seats right in front of it. i was already freaking out at that point, knowing that they'd eventually be within feet of us. and i saw Hoppy tuning up the guitars! :D








Kitty, Daisy & Lewis played... they were all right. not really the kind of music i like, but they weren't bad.



Elbow was fantastic!! i felt bad for only knowing Grounds for Divorce, though.



The Blue Danube came on... i freaked, naturally.

(yes, that was me saying "i do love you:wacky:" :sick:)

Chris was great. the hair talk at the b-stage- something about them being on tour for as long as three inches of curly hair, and that they'd keep on touring until people mistook him for Michael Bolton. then in VLV It was the wicked and wild wind// I just took something off my chin :lol:
the crowd was amazing, too.

then came the c-stage...

[ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CRPtGz911dA"]YouTube - Coldplay Walking up on the C-Stage[/ame]



OK, so i had made Coldplay puppets for my video for the Lost? competition, and i thought it'd be a good idea to bring them to the concert. i had the Chris one, Liv had the Jonny one, and Harley had the Guy and Will ones.

well, about 5 or 10 seconds after that video ended, Chris noticed the puppets. he loved them!!! :D he laughed and smiled, then showed Will, who also laughed and smiled. according to Harley, Guy noticed the puppets and smiled, too, but i didn't see. :(

they played Green Eyes, and i was surprisingly calm for being feet away from my loves. there was a bit of jonnychrislove! towards the end which is SUPER ADORABLE IN PERSON!!! :wacky::wacky:
then Chris sang the bit where he introduces Will. just before they started playing DWNC Guy had the SEXIEST look on his face. :bomb:
then Will started, and Chris was dancing around the stage. at one point he reached out and touched someone's hand, then he walked over by the corner closest to me. he looked directly at me (and let me tell you, he has GINORMOUS BLUE EYES!! :bomb::bomb:) and was smiling, and i started freaking out. of course, i looked right back at him. then he moved his hand, and it took me a second to realize what he was doing.... HE THREW HIS HARMONICA AT ME.
CHRIS MARTIN THREW ME HIS HARMONICA.:dead:
i couldn't believe it. especially since i caught it with my left hand. there were all sorts of people reaching for it, but i had managed to grab it and as soon as i did, i shoved it in my pocket so that no one could try to take it from me. apparently Chris didn't see that i caught it, though, because my sisters said he looked a bit confused and kept looking at the ground.

they played Billie Jean, which is a complete blur for me, as i was freaking out about the harmonica, then went back to the main stage.
the butterfly confetti didn't reach the lawn section, but i was OK with that because we ended up snatching a whole bunch as we were leaving.

when they came back on for the encore, Chris said something about them not coming back for a few years, so everyone started to boo. he was like, "what?! :p" then said something about Guy entering on America's Got Talent and being a naked Flamenco dancer (to which i may have said YEAHHH!). :lol:




and then it was over. :(
BUT I HAVE CHRIS' HARMONICA, SO BAM! :dance::dance:


so a VERY big thanks to everyone who sent me lots of Coldplay karma. :wacky::hug:

Luckiest Coldplayer ever :)

Some moments I'll never forget:

1.

I went to a vendor to get my Coldplay T-shirt, because at the moment I was wearing my ' Some girls were born Lucky shirt'.

Vendor: Hey, where you born lucky?

Me: Just because I'm here!

Vendor 2(to vendor): Well his wife wasn't born lucky!

Vendor : Aww that was just mean. :bigcry:

Everyone: :laugh3:

2.
Chris(singing): New England people can scream loud as f***...

Everyone: :Screams:

3.
Viva la Vida and The Hardest Part performance!

4. I cried as soon as they got on stage.

Ok i am typing this from my hotel room where i am staying along with my hubby in Providence,RI.But seriously i really can't believe how Chris said APW was their shittest concert ever.I don't know which words i've to believe which i shouldn't believe when he speaks.At APW when i was there he tells we're the best and says our concert is the best.Any way what ever to me
that concert is one great concert for me.I don't care what he feels.:rolleyes:

But now my review here too he said this is best concert ever.And the singing of the audience is wonderful during Fix you.And right from Lit,violet hill,clocks he's really rocking every moment.Especially Clocks is my favorite song and i like red lights,lasers during the live of that song.During the starting of in my place he said "oh that's a lot of people".And Yellow he cracked a lot of jokes at the end.Asked the audience to sing the entire last phrase and also some lines in the beginning.He also said the people at Massachusetts make a lot of noise.
Glass of water was really rocking i like that song.Cemeteries of london too i sang almost every word and enjoyed it highly.These two songs were actually not my favorite songs before but still after attending so many concerts i started to love them more now.42 was just amazing i think at the end Chris haven't really made any long pauses.He just finished it fast.And went into Fix you.At this song when we audience sang the beginning of some lyrics he really surprised and said "wow that's the most wonderful singing i ever heard" or some thing.But he liked our singing i can say.And after that,strawberry swing was awesome as usual.And during the b-stage set they almost were visible to me from where i sat yesterday.During the b-stage set Chris looked in my direction some times.They're just almost opposite direction to me.And i recorded the entire b-stage set.Its my favorite as usual and i enjoyed the whole set. Chris said a comment about his curly hair "we're touring with about 3 inches of curly hair in this tour". But he joked a lot during the beginning of hardest part.About how we people came to see them.After that Chris went back to the stage and started Viva la vida and here too we audience did our loud viva chants.And its so awesome.And then Lost is my favorite song and i enjoyed it from starting to end as always.And then during c-stage as i expected they went to lawn to do it.I stood up on my chair to see them from where i am but sadly i am some what far from them than every time.But that's my favorite part of the whole concert really.But well i was close to them a lot of times before and those memories are enough for me.:)And even in APW i was just 2 feet away from them from b-stage and also in my place ending .So and also in APW i was almost front row,and before i saw them especially Chris running past by me in one show too.All these memories can give me relief.
But well its awesome the whole green eyes,dwnc and billie jean.The mexican cell phone wave was good too.Then during viva remix the audience did viva chants around me and also danced a lot for it,after that ,the band went back to the stage and Chris started viva tune on piano for some time and then went into Politik and that's my god highly electric.And then Lovers in japan was very very awesome and this time too i got so many butterflies with me.And i really loved the death and all his friends its my favorite song.Then they took the bow and went backstage before encore.And during Scientist Chris said it'll be a few years again they return back.And said some things about LRLRL cd how its just zero cents.And then beginned Scientist.I always love it.I had the whole video too.And then Life in technicolor II i sang the entire lyrics for that song along with Chris and he looked in my direction straight in some parts too.I absolutely loved it.And the entire band left the stage.
It took a while for us to reach our places again back crossing all the traffic from the parking lots.But i got 2 copies of LRLRL again.Now i've totally 5 copies of it with me.:)

I'll upload my photos and videos and i edit them in this post again soon.:)

My photos:

Edited removed the link.

Awesome night last night! The weather was beautiful, with hardly a cloud in the sky. We got there kind of late though, so we missed part of the first act’s performance. I’m glad I got to hear Elbow though. Their set list did seem kind of short, but at least introduced me to another great band!

During Jay-Z’s I Just Wanna Love U, I managed to see Jesse’s “Let’s Talk Coldplay” sign and remembered it from here. You were really grooving man! :)

We were a little further back in Section 13, row N. It was kinda far from the main stage, but were excited to see them walk up the stairs next to us to Stage C. I wish I’d been able to get closer to them though, I was like 6 seats from the stairs.

I also wish I’d taken my dslr camera with the zoom lens, because nobody was checking any bags. I could’ve also brought my HD camcorder and recorded some of the songs…

Either way, it was an awesome night, and the free cd’s were a pretty cool treat. We listened to it 3 times while waiting to leave the parking lot, lol.

I'll try to get some pics up later on, but they're not all that great since they're from my point and shoot.
