actually all the pushing thing is the reason why i dont arrive extremely early to the shows, and i will say that it was not as bad as other concerts, it was pretty calm considering that everytime i have gone to a concert in Mexico City the security has to take out all the people from the crowd that faint, i didnt see that in monterrey

Funny how all of you mention the extreme pushing of mexican concerts, and as I have only gone to concerts here in Mexico I almost can't imagine a concert without it, sometimes is funny but in certain moments you just wanna scream "COME ON PEOPLE CALM DOWN!!!" and you feel really angry and upset (and of course so tired and on the edge of fainting), in fact all my friends hate general admission concerts and for this reason lately I have attended several concerts alone because my friends only want to go to the seated section.

Now I'm really curious about how are concerts in other countries, In fact I think now that the LP5 comes out and that they'll surely finish once more this tour in Mexico in 3 or 4 years, and I don't wanna wait so much time for it, I think I'll go to a show in the United States once the tour starts, and finally I'll feel how is to be in a GA concert without savage people :p

Honey You Are a Rock

When I was 13, I was going through hell.

Music saves you. And when I was 13, only "Green Eyes" could soothe me, calm me, relax me, and give me a moment to think and breathe and rethink the screams that were building up inside me. "Green Eyes" was not the first Coldplay song I heard. It wasn't the first Coldplay song I fell in love with, or the reason I began to buy their records. But "Green Eyes" had the power of making me feel at home.


It's been said that there are more people in the world who hate Coldplay than those who love them. I, for one, do not understand who these people are. I've met these people, and some are friends. I've heard people say Coldplay's music is depressing, or pretentious, or stupid. I, for one, do not understand why these people believe this.


I've been waiting for years for Coldplay to come to my city. And I've been planning that concert with my best friend, whom I made a pact with that we would not go to our first Coldplay concert without each other. Which is why, after many opportunities of seeing them live in other cities, we waited until we could both go to Coldplay's first concert in Monterrey. That was last night, March 11 2010, when the band played at Estadio Universitario to close their Viva la Vida tour.


After a 10-hour bus ride from Austin and a 10-hour wait outside and in the stadium, my back out, my legs and feet sore, my eyes red and puffy from the lack of sleep, my mouth dry, the lights went out and I heard screams.


Coldplay's songs are not about sex. Coldplay's songs do not have the word "bitch" in every other verse. Coldplay's songs are not about getting wasted, or the curve of a fine ass.


Coldplay's songs speak of hope and urgency, confusion and dreams, they speak of loss and about finding a way back. They speak of belonging, friendship, possibility and politics and wishful thinking. They speak of freedom. They speak of fairness.


Chris Martin's voice is not the finest. It's far from perfect. Weird, even.
Chris Martin's voice is pure and honest, the sound of heartbreak. The sound of peace.


When you see the four boys live, they look like just that- boys. Boys running around the stage, smiling tiny secret smiles when listening to the thousands of voices that know their music by heart.


Last night I cried. At first I cried of frustration, pain, tiredness, and because my best friend was nowhere to be seen. In midst of the madness, we lost each other. And then I cried for the music. And no, I was not the only one. And no, it was not only girls that cried last night. Coldplay's music does not only speak to girls, it does not only speak to gay men (like many straight Coldplay-hating men would think). It speaks to the hopeless, or the worried, the excited and eager, the joyful, the madly in love, the indecisive.


I tightly grasped a friend's hand last night while "Fix You" was playing. The lights bright and Martin at the piano, there was a silent wish that could be heard through everybody's singing.


The beauty of their music lies in the impact it has in its listeners. After seeing them live, all I wanted to do was write. Write while the memory of "Shiver" was still fresh in my mind and the image of Will Champion's smile was still infectious. And like I wanted to get home and write, I bet a lot of people left wanting to play the guitar, or paint, or take a photography course, or dance and laugh, or play soccer with more drive and confidence than they had before, or with a greater reassurance that one day they will accomplish what they've been wanting to accomplish.


"Green Eyes" wasn't played last night, and neither was "See You Soon", another one of my favorites. But it was an amazing night, a memorable night. And when I found my best friend outside the stadium after the concert, it did feel like the plan didn't go 100% like we wanted it to. But there'll be more nights like this, without the 10-hour bus ride and the sore feet.


And for those who say they hate Coldplay, I hope for their own sake that they give their music another listen.


All music has the potential of saving someone.

The ticket said that at 20:00 hours on 11 March was the appointment in the University Stadium, so by 6:30 and was leaving home with Ninfa, leave my car at the condo where they live and Albert and JC we walked to the subway station is at Padre Mier, there we began to hear the comments of other people who also went to see Coldplay, all expectant and excited to go see them, I finally got the subway and boarded up get to university that was completely full of people ...

Abriendo paso entre la multitud logramos salir a la calle y la vendimia de playeras y demás cosas nos recibió, decidimos echar un vistazo y compramos una playera cada quién y pues salí con un pin, una muñequera, un vaso tequilero y una gorra también... Opening through the crowd we get out into the street and vintage T-shirts and other things we received, we decided to take a look and bought a shirt each and then went out with a pin, a wristband, a cup tequila and a cap also .. .

Ya se oía música pero no nos apuramos, seguimos viendo cosas, el grupo que sonaba era LeBaron, originarios del DF tuvieron la oportunidad de abrirle a los Ingleses y ahí estaban, haciendo lo suyo, pero nosotras seguimos viendo y preguntando en cada puesto que tenía algo interesante... Music could be heard but we do not hurry, and we see things, the group was sounding LeBaron, originating in the City had the opportunity to open to the English and there they were, doing its thing, but we still see each position and asking that he something interesting ...

Vi mi reloj y eran las 7:30, ¿ya vamos a entrar no? I looked at my watch and it was 7:30, have you not going to go? le dije a Ninfa y respondió que sí, de nuevo nos abrimos paso y caminamos hasta llegar al acceso que nos correspondía, hicimos una fila enorme pero que avanzaba con rapidéz, checaron nuestros boletos, nos revisaron y entramos por fin al Uni... Ninfa and told him yes, we made our way back and walked to get access to our share, we made a long line but it moved quickly, check our tickets, we revised and finally entered the Uni ..

Since I did not see my watch but I think we were like 8 passes when the lights went out and many people cried with emotion, appeared on stage a giant photograph of a wolf howling at the full moon in the background and then were some people walking on stage, the music started and was surprised to the pleasant voice of the vocalist, was the English band Bat for Lashes who gave a presentation very emotional and full of great music, I loved, I thought to myself that the concert began with the right foot ... tocaron una hora aprox. played one hours approx. luego se despidieron y se fueron... then they parted and went ... rápido se subieron los técnicos al escenario y quitaron sus cosas para poner las de Coldplay, mientras nosotros esperábamos al ritmo de varias rolas que pusieron de fondo, poco a poco el estadio Universitario se llenó... technicians quickly jumped on stage and took his stuff to put Coldplay, while we waited several rolas pace that put the background, gradually filled the Universitario stadium

Once again the lights went out and appeared on the giant screens an image of Planet Earth, then zoomed in to see North America after Mexico, went to Nuevo León, Monterrey came up and advanced to become the University Stadium in the crosshairs, then opened the concert: D

Chris Martin took us by surprise with Spanish speaking a decent enough mistakes but we thrilled to see their intention to connect to us ... y lo consiguió...todos estábamos entregados disfrutando su música e interpretación. and got it ... we were all enjoying their music delivered and interpretation.

Cuando tocaron "Yellow" echaron luces amarillas entre la multitud y unas pelotas gigantes amarillas surgieron de la nada y empezaron a rebotar entre los asistentes, eran muchas y durante toda la canción se la pasaron avanzando entre la gente quienes las golpeaban para que siguieran su accidentado camino, cuando se acabó la canción dejaron de verse... When they played "Yellow" yellow lights cast in the crowd and a giant yellow ball came out of nowhere and began to bounce among the attendees were many throughout the song and it went forward among the people who beat them to follow his eventful way, when you finished the song stopped seeing ...

Durante todo el concierto vimos a un Chris Martin contento, bailó, corrió, se quedó sin aliento, se tiró al piso, se preocupó por nosotros ya que al ver que había varias personas al frente que estaban siendo empujadas muy fuerte nos pidió que nos moviéramos hacia atrás para no lastimarnos, también en algunas piezas nos pidió que cantáramos más fuerte y ahí estábamos nosotros, gritando para él. Throughout the concert Chris Martin saw a happy, she danced, ran, gasped, fell to the ground, worried about us since we saw that there were several people in front who were being pushed too hard we were asked us to move back to not hurt, even in some parts asked us to sing louder and there we were, screaming for him.

El escenario a pesar de ser sencillo contaba con dos brazos salientes que permitian que se acercaran más al público y de hecho tocaron un par de piezas ahí, las cuales cantamos con todas las ganas... The stage despite being single had two protruding arms that allowed them to come more to the public and actually hit a couple of pieces there, which we sang with all the enthusiasm ... otra cosa que nos encantó fue que se bajaron del escenario y empezaron a caminar entre la gente hasta llegar a un pequeño escenario en la parte media de la cancha, solo cabían los 4 parados y un poco apretados, pero tocaron varias piezas ahí en versiones acústicas y hasta el baterista cantó una canción, demostrando sus buenos dotes vocales... another thing we loved was that they got on stage and started walking between people until you reach a small stage in the middle of the stadium, only fit the 4 unemployed and a little tight, but played several pieces there in acoustic versions and even the drummer sang a song, showing his good vocal talents ...

Other points that intrigued us were the explosions that threw a lot of colored paper butterflies, which flew over us graciously, were flying over thousands and all the people singing and shouting happy for the wonderful show we were witnessing ... también hicimos la ola pero con las luces de los celulares, todo a petición de Chris Martin y en español, la ola se hizo varias veces y se veía fenomenal... but we also did the wave with the lights of cell phones, all at the request of Chris Martin and Spanish, the wave is made several times and looked phenomenal ...

Hubo algo de pirotecnia muy bien sincronizada y colorida, que nos hizo gritar una vez más, Coldplay presentó un espectáculo realmente padrísimo, muy buen sonido, maravillosa voz y una entrega mutua no tan vista en este tipo de conciertos... There was some very well-timed pyrotechnics and colorful, which made us cry again presented a live Coldplay really hoot, very good sound, wonderful voice and a mutual surrender not as seen in this type of concert ...

I kept wanting to hear "Trouble" and "Speed of Sound" and yet the concert I came, I filled it and left me amazed at how big it can be a group ...

They promised to return ...

I completely agree with what you say and I'm happy you finally got to go with your friend to the concert! :) I would've definitely cried (and yes, I am a straight guy)

I just want to say THANK YOU :D Thank you everyone for your comments, reviews, pictures and videos!

I was not privileged to attend a VIVA concert and it was my ultimate dream. But through your feedback, I felt like I was there. So thank you from the bottom of my heart. :heart:

Slightly sad the VIVA era is over *GROUP HUG* :hug: but I'm so syked for the next one!
Hopefully, I'll finally have my dream come true and actually see Coldplay live

Thanks again everyone
