Not sure whether this is the right place to put this, or if repost.
But here's a review from the Daily Planet along with some photos.
"Seeing Coldplay at the Xcel Energy Center...I was stunned by the group’s individual and collective charisma, as well as their energetic performance."
"The Twin Cities were the last stop on the American leg of Coldplay’s Mylo Xyloto tour, and frontman Chris Martin assured the crowd they had all decided it would be the “best fucking show [they’d] ever played.” Their performance was certainly a spectacle, complete with oversized balloons, inflatable butterflies, and light-up bracelets for audience members."
A sign of the group’s mass appeal, the audience was comprised of middle-aged parents, pre-teens, drunk fraternity brothers, and a number of 20 and 30somethings with a somewhat distant look about them that suggested they had been prime targets for Parachutes and A Rush of Blood to the Head in the early 2000s. Shoot confetti out of a canon, though, ask people to sing along, and somehow these differences (along with a general lack of audience rhythm) matter much less."
