So, here are my photos from the show, kidlets! Sorry it's taken so long to do a proper update, but I still can't really process it all. So, a rep from Capitol came and got us and we waited downstairs. And we waited. And finally Jackie (the lady with the afro) came and got us and took us into the friends and family room. And then in walks Guy. And then Chris. And then Jonny. Then Will. I'm sure my mouth fell open at that point :lol:

I was so humbled by how humble they are. They are the most down-to-earth guys you'll ever want to meet and Will was such a gentleman during our interview.

Which is here: (sorry bout the sound.....you'll probably have to crank it cos the lady who was shooting was too far away and our voices had nothing to bounce off of)

And here are my pics from the pre-show and during the show. We had decent seats, but my camera doesn't work well from so far back. Still, I hope you enjoy. http://www1.snapfish.com/thumbnailshare/AlbumID=746437017/a=5454539_5454539/otsc=SHR/otsi=SALBlink/COBRAND_NAME=snapfish/

Thanks so much to everyone else who posted photos. They are AMAZING!

New guy here. I just wanted to post and say how much I enjoyed this show, and I haven't been able to stop thinking about it since. I have a new found appreciation of Viva after hearing most of it live.

Thanks for the set list and the pics! I was about 5 feet from the band when they came and played in the audience.

Awesome!!! (here's a pic - my wife cheesin' in the foreground) :)

Really congrats for your self-control, it doesn't seem at all that you're talking to Coldplay's drummer !:stunned:

OK GIANNA!!! YOU NEED TO GO TO EVERY SINGLE COLDPLAY SHOW EVA! and i need to come with u too!:sneaky:

LOOKED AT ALL THE PICS............MY FACE WAS = :eek: + :dead: + :dizzy2: the entire time! :dead:!



Ohhhhhkay. Review time. I got into Des Moines at about 3:30 and kind of drove around for a bit. At 4, I parked and had a nice long walk to the venue in the POURING rain:veryangry2:. I was soaked for the rest of the night but I got over myself because its COLDPLAY!

I went to this show because I volunteered with Oxfam (an amazing organization and I strongly suggest you volunteer at a show at least once)! I ended up getting the most signatures which was awesome! I got an Oxfam/Coldplay shirt! Here is our awesome group!


Everyone say hi to Soha if you see her! She's the one in the yellow pants! She's an awesome and so fun to talk to!

After we were done going around asking the concertgoers to sign our petition we met back at the Oxfam table to get our tickets. Soha told us that she got us really great seats. I thought, 'Sweet! Hopefully we'll be in the 200s instead of the 300s!' NOPE. She got us Row 10 Seats in the CENTER section. When we got to our seats, we were dead even with the end of the ramps! SO CLOSE!

Coldplay finally got on at 9:15. They were ON too! Jonny was so dancey, Will was pounding the shit out of the drums, Chris was all over the place, and Guy even had an extra bounce in his step! The highlights of the evening for me 42 (with Chris hitting that ridiculous note at the end, the cheeky bastard!), when Chris caressed Guy's head during In My Place:bomb::sneaky:, and I'm a Believer (when I heard GUY'S ANGELIC VOICE FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER!!!! :bomb: ). But what really made this night amazing was the crowd. They were all really into it. Even the corporate mofos were out of their skybox seats dancing!

Overall, it was a fantastic night! And it was Dan Green's 30th birthday! Happy belated birthday Dan! For those of you who don't know, Dan is Coldplay's sound engineer who has been with them since the beginning! I got a wave from Rick (Liz and I's roadie buddy) and said hi to Phil one of the camera men when he was roaming the halls before the concert!


That's Phil and Rick is the one holding the curtain that's been cut off by my camera.

I didnt take any video because my camera fails at it so you're stuck with my pictures:laugh3:


]
IM SO EXITED THAT ROADIE RICK RECOGNIZED YOU AGAIN :dance: :dance: AHHH i wuv him he is such the best roadie buddy of ours! :hug: :pleased:

thats so great volunteering with Oxfam was a great experience for u too! :D i want to volunteer at a future show sometime too!
nice butterfly shirt too missy! :blush:

glad to know the boys all seemed in a good mood and all "dancy" :lol:






I know the kind of thoughts that are going through Lori, Mel, and Angie's minds when they look at this picture:laugh3::sneaky:








Wishing Dan a Happy Birthday!



"There he is!"






For LIZ!!!:D




ANNND that's it. If you wanna take a look at the rest of my pics, here's the link:

I hope you enjoyed them!
AHHH :bomb: thank you for my picture dearest! :kiss:

Will and Jonny too!:sweatdrop: DAMN!! seriously u need to go to EVERY coldplay show! :bomb:

so happy you had a wonderful time! :wacky: :hug:

I wanted to write this sooner but I didn’t get a chance. The show was GREAT! They sounded wonderful. You could feel the music moving through your body and energizing you. We were way up in the 304s, but even though we were way up high we were still able to see pretty well. We saw 2 girls get upgraded. They had no idea what was coming when the roadie sat down next to them. They looked shocked as he walked them down to the front. They were way at the back of our section, against the wall, so they had really bad seats. We tried to get the roadies attention but no luck. I was happy that the crowd was loud and singing along. I lost my voice from singing so loud. The b stage was the closest we got, it was directly under us. It is so nice that they move around and set up in different places so that if you have bad seats you will eventually get to see them closer. The butterfly confetti is amazing, as was everything else! On the way out we got some butterflies from the section below us and LRLRL with no problems. Thanks Coldplay for an amazing night!

Glastra: Your interview was really good! I would have been too nervous to talk.

Gianna: Thanks for your great pics!
