Here to who ever wanted me to put it in paragraphs or whatever.
So the Mansfield Massachusetts show was my first Coldplay concert ever. And all I can say is, it. Was. Amazing. Period. That was seriously the best night of my life. My friend Kate and went with her older brother and his friends, but Kate and I had separate seats away from them. We arrived at the Comcast center like a half hour before the doors opened, at 7pm. There was no reason getting there wicked early, because it wasn't general admission so we didn't have to fight to get seats.
So, we're waiting outside for the doors to open, and I bought a Life In Technicolor shirt. It was 40 dollars, which I thought was kind if a lot. Also they were giving out free Monster Energy Drinks, and I took one. Which quickly made me hyper, haha.
Then the doors opened and Kate and I made our way to our seats. When we found our seats, we were very dissapointed. The tickets we had bought were over a hundred dollars, and our seats were way in the back, by the lawn. And there was a huge camera, directly in our way! I went down and complained to this worker that we couldn't see. I wasn't really serious and I really thought she was just going to tell me, "Oh well, there's nothing I can do..." But to my surprise, she took both of our tickets and wrote new seat numbers on them, and handed them back. She told us where to go and who to show the tickets to, and she was extremely nice. When we got to our new seats, we were so happy! We had been moved so much closer! All the way from section 13 in the back, up to section 5.
Pretty soon the openers started, and I wasn't too thrilled with them. I didn't like Kitty, Daisy, & Lewis, but Elbow was good. Some music played after the openers, U2, rap, classical, and then the lights went out and Life In Technicolor started with the band coming on stage waving sparklers, I was so excited it was beyond belief!
Later Chris stated that the band had played their shitiest concert last night, so they had to play their best tonight to make up for it. That received a lot of cheers. Clocks sported a laser show along with it.During yellow not many balloons came towards Kate and I, but I did manage to hit one! During Lovers in Japan, I loved the giant slideshow that went along with the lyrics. Also, tons and tons of butterfly confetti fell from the ceiling.
During the show when the band squished onto the little B stage for a few songs, I thought it was amazing how they all fit and still were able to play! Chris sang a little song about New England that he made up, which was so funny. They also went to another small stage in the back by the lawn and played a few songs.
After they got off the B stage, the thumping beat of Viva La Vida started. At the end of Viva La Vida, Chris lay on the ground as if he were dead. HAHA that was great. Then all of a sudden he did a backwards summersault, and Lost! started up. The show ended with Life In Technicolor ii, which was breath taking. The paintings that were up on the screen behind the band were beautiful too.
So when it was over I walked away with my new Life In Technicolor shirt, free LeftRightLeftRightLeft cd, and a hand full of confetti. It's been a while since the concert so some of my details might be a little fuzzy, I was trying to remember. So all in all, the concert was absolutely amazing! It's all I've been thinking about since. Haha. I was like on a literal high the next day after, it was insane. I can't wait until they come back to Massachusetts and I can go again. Now my only dream would be to meet Chris Martin (lol like that will ever happen). I think that would pretty much make my life complete. Or as complete as a fifteen year old's life can be.
So if I make a review of a show, I can't mention that there were lasers? That makes perfect sense. Not.
I read other reviews that mentioned how there was confetti and yellow balloons. And I didn't see you say anything to them. Yeah, we all know that there was confetti, balloons, and lasers but they were just writing it because they were talking about what happened at the concert.
