Notice how into it Jonny is. :nice: (Jonny-girls will like it, I assume?)
It's best to watch it smaller than the youtube window, so I suggest that you "zoom out your browser window".

My (personal) detailed review [PART 1 - Before the show]

Sunday the 16th of August 2009, Herning, Denmark:
(Attention! If you do not want to read about before the show (which includes soundcheck), then skip part 1
I arrived at Messecenter Herning a bit past 11 am. I was going to see Coldplay live for the first time in the MCH Outdoor Arena. As I sat in the car with my family while we drove past a big sign with the VIVA logo and “COLDPLAY” (http://www.coldplay.com/uploads/midt2.jpg one) I could feel the little excitement coming to me. As you can see in the puppet pictures from Herning posted on Coldplay.com there were both Danish and British flags on poles around the area, which I think was a nice gesture.
My brother and I had trouble finding out where to line up, which caused that I was running back and forth to find the place. It said entrance E on our tickets and after some time we realized that we had to wait where it said E, F and G. By then there were two men before us in the queue. It was okay. Luckily they were really nice and talkative. I was supposed to wait in line with Roos and her family, but it turned out that they had entrance B unfortunately. To my relief, my brother wanted to wait with me for all the hours, just for me. We both had inner scene tickets.
At around noon things started to happen; Coldplay did their soundcheck already! We heard Life in Technicolor, Violet Hill and bits of Lovers in Japan but mostly Speed of Sound which all in all got played about 4 times (both parts and full song). When I stood at a certain place I could see Jonny! Suddenly I saw a man with a girl around my age on his shoulders and they were talking in a language I don’t speak . I was wondering if that could have been Roos (RoosAnne), so I texted her to ask and we met each other. I had been looking forward to that and to give her an early birthday present (a Coldplay bracelet I made for her). The others found a table we could stand on and see the soundcheck from! Speed of Sound means a lot to me, because it was the song that got me to know Coldplay (I was euphoric the first times I heard it), so I felt really excited, happy and had butterflies in my stomach when hearing it at the soundcheck. I hoped and believed that they would play it at the concert. I could only see Will, Guy and Jonny and I couldn’t really hear Chris much, only a few times. They went out on the ramp to play some of GPASUYF and Talk. It felt surreal that they were actually standing there in front of me to see, but it made me very happy. We waved at them. At some point I calmly waved at Jonny with no expectations and guess what?! Jonny waved back at me!! That made me really happy.
Soon after soundcheck other fans joined in the line. One girl had been a fan since 2000 and seen them several times! There were lots of hours of waiting on the program. We did a smart number system a man arranged to prevent late coming people to skip the queue. I had a good time, people were nice and time went by fastly for me.
Right before 6 pm when the gates were scheduled to open I stood nervously with my face towards them with my brother. My heart was beating really fast. I was prepared for the run. Gates opened and I ran as good as I could to get my ticket checked (with security trying to stop us from running and a brother getting stuck in line) and to our spot at the field. My brother joined me soon afterwards. Second row in the centre! That would be almost right in front of Chris as I dreamed of! Roos and her family were a few meters to the right and I could wave at her.
The time waiting for Coldplay felt long – well definitely for my knees. The support bands did their job and afterwards a lot of music was played while Coldplay’s roadies were all over the stage. I saw a couple of roadies I “know” (Hoppy and Matt or Bash - who is who?) and tour manager Franksy. Miller put a camera up right in front of us to film the crowd. I waved at him, but he saw nothing, haha.
There were a lot of people (it is now known that the audience contained 37.500 people) which also was a first time experience for me. It did not frighten me though, because I had space enough to jump around and move my arms, so no claustrophobia for me.
A Jay Z song got played and I knew it was getting close… I could feel the excitement in my whole body. A Coldplay roadie danced to the Jay Z song on one of the two ramps. I have seen him in videos, but he was better than I expected. The Blue Danube was played and I knew beforehand that we were going to clap at the right times to it. The crowd was lively and up for it and the ambiance was great. The Blue Danube ended, the crowd cheered and in a moment it was going to happen…

[…to be continued]

Hi Julie,

Thanks for a great, great review, part 1. :kiss: :)
I look forward to reading part 2 (when it is ready).

Have a nice evening. :)

Today the German radio station NDR2 has had a "Coldplay Day", but I have only heard the station play "Hardest Part" at 16.30, but I have not been listening to NDR2 non-stop all day (for a great part of it I had the sound level at low, while listening to VH1, DK). And I was not home from 15.30 to 16.30 durich which period of time there was a competition to win 2 tickets for tonight's show. That radio station is sponsor for tonight's show in Hannover and gave away the 2 tickets. It was announced that after the end of tonight's show NDR2 would have much more Coldplay (Aftershow Party).

I was at home listening to VH1, Denmark 1. From 12-13 VH1, DK played 6 Coldplay songs: LiT II, GPASUYF, Strawberry Swing, Trouble, Clock and VLV.
At 3am VLV was also played, and at 9.30 Violet Hills in connection with the theme: Grand Avenue versus Coldplay. And being no. 8 in the Playlist Strawberry Swing was played at 14.15 and will be played again at 21.15. So one would think that it was VH1, DK and not NDR2 that had a "Coldplay Day" playing Coldplay at least 10 times! :laugh3::D:lol:

Also a special hallo to RoosAnne. :)

TRANSLATION of the Danish newspaper "BT"'s review of Coldplay's concert in Herning on 16 August, 2009

(Article by Lasse Skytt, employed by BT / translated by Nancy Boysen) (4*/6*)

ONLINE version of the Danish newspaper "BT" on Monday 17 August, 2009

Coldplay in the Danish town "Herning" - What a show !! (link: BT.dk )

Herning's high ambitions to host the big events pull well together with Chris Martin's belief that Coldplay is the world's greatest rock band. Almost 40,000 people witnessed that.

Ambitious Herning and Coldplay were a perfect match

Strauss’ ” the Danube Waltz” was played when Coldplay entered the huge stage around 21 o’clock on Sunday, 16 August 2009. Two hours later the concert area in Herning bore witness to a very pompous and magnificent event: Machines emitting confetti, machines emitting smoke, yellow balloons and fireworks were scattered all over the place.
After only 15 minutes’ concert we had already heard a handful of the very best songs written since year 2000, and no doubt about that: Coldplay’s music will continue to be an indisputable part of the sound track of the decade ending in a few months’ time.
Fortunately the band members are also capable of presenting the pop melodies in extravagant and fantastic “live” versions. Chris Martin was full of energy, empathy and joy. And as always the other band members demonstrated an enviable co-operation.
Unfortunately the curly frontman was sometimes so short of breath after having run from one end of the stage to the other that several songs simply had to be shortened.

More Changes Needed
Compared with Coldplay’s concert at this year’s Roskilde Festival, the setlist was almost the same, and there were not many elements of surprise: We had particularly heard the acoustic tribute to Michael Jackson before.
In addition to that, it was a bit frustrating to wait for the many changes of scenery – the intensity fell a bit towards the end of the concert. The highlights, however, overrode all that – the colourful version of "Lovers In Japan" was quite unique and so was Chris Martin’s beautiful version of "The Scientist".
All in all Herning and Coldplay were a perfect match. They can be very proud of each other.

Coldplay Concert in Herning on 16 August 2009

As promised more reviews of Coldplay's concert in Herning on 16 August 2009

HOCUS-POCUS OF FIRST CLASS
by Palle Heering Nielsen (employed by "Herning Folkeblad") / translated by Nancy Boysen

(Source: Herning Folkeblad, a Danish local paper covering the Herning area)

Coldplay delivered a fantastic and surprising show, but there were sound problems!
English Coldplay gave a fantastic, almost 2-hour-long performance as their European outdoor tour started in front of about 37,000 people at the MCH Outdoor Arena in Herning. It was a first-class show with laser lights, fireworks, yellow huge balloons, flying butterflies made of paper and other special effects making the concert more than just musical entertainment.

Lead singer Chris Martin proved that his vocal chords had recovered after his problems in the USA last week when the band had to cancel a show in Tampa, Florida. Chris Martin was cheerful and attentive. He spoke to the audience as if he knew everyone, and he thanked the audience several times for "having defied the cold and wind" in order to hear Coldplay instead of staying at home to watch television.

The band showed that they had great reserves of energy, and there were several surprises at the concert. Some time during the concert the four musicians "disappeared" and reappeared far back at the concert venue where they played a couple of acoustic songs for those who had been far back in the line for the front rows. The audience heard, among other songs, a tribute to the late Michael Jackson as the foursome played their version of Billie Jean - but without moonwalking.

But Coldplay could walk on water - almost. The only disadvantage of the concert was the sound problems. Several of the well-known riffs and solos disappeared because the instruments were not loud enough, and rumours had it that the sound problems were worse at the back, maybe due to the strong wind as was the case at the Bruce Springsteen concert on 8 July 2009.

It was a pity because all the other details were of really high class. And when the audience left the venue, they received a free CD with live recordings off the Viva La Vida tour to make a successful evening in Herning even better.


The always cheerful Chris Martin

Coldplay spread warmth in windy Herning

Review made by Peter Albrechtsen (employed by the Danish newspaper "Ekstrabladet") / translated by Nancy Boysen
Source: [email protected]
(4*/6*)

Once there was a noble knight named Chris Martin. The curly-headed singer travelled about the entire country in order to spread joy and good vibrations. Everyone loved him, and he loved everyone.
Yesterday Chris Martin arrived in Herning together with the three other Coldplay superstars, and also here love was in the air. The like-able soul is one of the few people on earth capable of smiling in spite of strong wind blowing into his face.
Almost two months ago - on 5 July, 2009 - at the Roskilde Festival when Coldplay was the closing act, Chris Martin showed that he is physically unable to turn the corners of his mouth downwards. Chris Martin did actually not make as many humorous comments and jokes in Herning as he did at the Roskilde Festival, and that meant that the show in Herning was not quite as charming as the show at the Roskilde Festival.

Special effects
On the other hand, in Herning the band played together more energetically and vigorously than at the Roskilde Festival - this applies to drummer Will Champion in particular - but that did not take away the sensitivity of Coldplay's songs which are always full of feelings.
In addition to this, compared to the Roskilde Festival, Coldplay used more special effects and had intensified the set design which was magnificent in itself. We already knew about the machines emitting confetti and the intimate stage among the audience, but the gigantic big screen which was almost as wide as a football ground made you open up your eyes wide.
Unfortunately the ears were not spoiled in the same way during the entire concert, because in the last part of the concert the intensity declined because of too many changes of scenery. It seemed too cheap that the two-hour-long set once again included Michael Jackson's "Billie Jean", but a couple of explosive encore numbers made it difficult to be really cross with the cheerful Coldplay boys.
At the end Chris bowed. And lived happily ever after. [email protected]


GIGANTIC SINGING-ALONG IN HERNINGReview made by Marie Lade

(employed by the Danish newspaper "Ekstrabladet") / translated by Nancy Boysen

The clouds were black, and the wind was very strong in Herning. But Sunday evening in Herning was full of light, warmth and singing-along, because on Sunday 16 August, 2009 in the evening 37,500 people had a gigantic joyful party together with the British rock band Coldplay near Messecenter Herning.
The band had come to Herning in Denmark, the first stop of their European "Viva La Vida tour", where they gave a cool party with singing-along and big, yellow balloons as well as a video show - and fireworks from the large stage the warmth of which reached the rows at the back.

In the back row
The experienced rockstars are famous for being able to deliver a magnificent stage show. So they did in Herning, where the air was full of sweat, drizzle and the smell of sausages, urine and draught beer. In the middle of a parade of well-known hits and with a sense of pleasing everyone, the British rock athletes left the stage, sneaking away unnoticed - and suddenly they were standing on a little platform among the audience in the row far back where the foursome delivered an intimate show in a single ray of light in the darkness. A like-able, little gimmick with guitars and harmonica which really was a hit among the partying / joyous audience and culminating with a tribute to the late Michael Jackson.

Blue beam for Jackson
From the little platform the band asked the audience to switch on their mobile phones and at the same time turn the blue light towards the sky, so that the entire party beamed a common tribute towards the sky while everyone sang Jackson's megahit "Billie Jean" . After that it was again empty, dark and quiet. And then ... with Coldplay's sense of show they were again standing on the stage in an orgy of colours, light and sound.

- "It was not bad at all". That was the happy verdict of many hoarse concert-goers when the show was over. It was a magnificent evening in Herning. [email protected]

Translation of reviews of Coldplay Concert on 16 August 2009 in Herning made by the Danish newspapers Herning Folkeblad and EkstraBladet


I have printed 2 articles with reviews of Coldplay's concert in Munich on 29 August 2009 (taken from "www.laxmag.de and www.tz-online.de). The latter is a full review of the concert, published on 30 August 2009, whereas the review posted earlier was a very short review of the concert. I intend to translate both articles in near future. :)

It was a very enthusiastic Coldplay, who last night took to the stage at the Outdoor Arena at the Exhibition Center Herning. Pågældende koncert var første stop på bandets kommende Europa-turne. That concert was the first stop on the band's upcoming European tour.

For at sætte gang i publikums blodomløb før hovednavnet skulle på scenen, optrådte det danske indie-band Moi Caprice samt den britiske gruppe White Lies. To stimulate the audience's blood flow before the main concert was at the scene, appeared the Danish indie band Moi Caprice and the British group White Lies.

Moi Caprice Moi Caprice

Mens folk stadig var ved at indfinde sig på deres respektive pladser på arenaen, gik Moi Caprice på scenen. While people still were about to present itself to their respective seats on the arena, went Moi Caprice on stage. Bandet spillede deres største hits, såsom The Art of Kissing Properly, My girl You Blush samt Drama Queen. Alle energiske sange, The band played their biggest hits including The Art of Kissing Properly, My Girl You Blush and Drama Queen. All energetic songs men på trods heraf, formåede Moi Caprice aldrig helt at rive publikum med, selvom bandet forekom meget veloplagte og beærede over at få lov at opvarme for selveste Coldplay. but despite this, Moi Caprice never managed to completely tear audience, although the band seemed very playful and honored to be allowed to warm himself for Coldplay. Veloplagte var publikum dog ikke helt på daværende tidspunkt, måske på grund af den kraftige blæst, der også op til flere gange var ved at tage frontmand Michael Møllers store sorte hat med sig i svinget. Playful audience was not quite at that stage, perhaps because of the strong winds, also up to several times was by taking the front man Michael Miller's large black hat with them in turn.

Som altid udtrykte Michael Møller sine yndige dansetrin gennem feminine bevægelser, men som noget nyt opførte han sig meget velopdragent og stueren på scenen. As always, Michael Moller expressed his lovely feminine through dance movements, but as something new built himself very politely and rooms on the scene. Måske fordi han vidste, det var et noget andet klientiel end sædvaneligt, der var mødt op denne aften. Maybe because he knew it was something other than klientiel usage significantly, which was turned up this evening. Hele bandet var klædt i sort og andre mørke farver (for som de tidligere har udtalt: Vi går klædt i sort, indtil der dukker en mørkere farve op), men desværre var bagtæppet ligeledes sort. The whole band was dressed in black and other dark colors (for which they have previously stated: We are dressed in black, until the emergence of a darker color up) but unfortunately was also black backdrop. Det bevirkede, at bandet nærmest flød ud i ét med det sorte tæppe, så man som publikum var nødt til at fokusere på storskærmen for at følge med i det, der foregik på scenen. It meant that the band almost ran into one with the black carpet so that the audience had to focus on the big screen to follow what was happening on stage. Alt i alt gav Moi Caprice en god halv-times koncert, på trods af et meget stillestående publikum. All in all, gave Moi Caprice, a good half-hour concert, in spite of a very stagnant audience.

White Lies White Lies

White Lies var næste punkt på programmet, og nu var arenaens tilskuere øjensynligt ved at være varme i leddene. White Lies was next on the program, and now the arena spectators apparently by being heat in the joints. I al fald blev der klappet gevaldigt med på hits som To Lose My Life og Farewell to the Fairground , der begge har været spillet flittigt på P3. In any event, was applauded tremendously with the hits To Lose My Life and Farewell to the Fairground, which both have been played frequently at P3. Hvor Moi Caprices koncert var karakteriseret ved et meget stillestående publikum, så var koncerten med White Lies kendetegnet ved et meget stillestående band – ingen af bandets medlemmer bevægede sig stort set hele koncerten igennem, hvilket var en skam. Where Moi Caprice concert was characterized by a very stagnant audience, so was the concert with White Lies characterized by a very stagnant band - none of the band members moved largely through the entire concert, which was a shame. Forsanger Harry McVeighs stemme fremtrådte meget ren og solid, men der kan derimod sås tvivl ved hans guitaristiske kunnen, da hans guitarspil lød pivfalsk gentagne gange. Lead singer Harry McVeigh's voice appeared very clean and solid, but there may however be called into question by his guitarist mission capabilities, as his guitar playing sounded pivfalsk repeatedly. Publikum fik undervejs en smagsprøve på noget endnu ukendt, nemlig en B-side i form af sangen T axidermy. The audience got underway a taste of something still unknown, namely a B-side in the form of the song T axidermy.

Coldplay Coldplay

Herefter var det endelig tid til, at aftenens længe ventede hovednavn, Coldplay , skulle indtage scenen. Then it was finally time for tonight's long-awaited headlining, Coldplay, would take the stage. Som introduktion fik publikum serveret Strauss' An der schönen blauen Donau samtidig med, at der på storskærmen blev fremvist et satelit-verdenskort, hvor Messecenteret i Herning var tilføjet som destination. As an introduction had the audience served Strauss' An der schönen blauen Donau, while that on large screen was shown a satellite map of the world where the exhibition grounds in Herning was added as a destination. Det fungerede utroligt godt, måske fordi det gav publikum en fornemmelse af, at bandet rent faktisk var klar over, hvor i verden de befandt sig. It worked incredibly well, perhaps because it gave the audience a feeling that the band actually knew where in the world they found themselves. Da satelitten slutteligt zoomede ind på arenaen, hvor vi alle stod, var der stor jubel at spore. Since the satellite finally zoomed in to the arena where we all stood, there was great jubilation to track.

Koncerten indledtes med sangen Life in Technicolor fra Coldplays seneste plade, efterfulgt af hittet Violet Hill. Herefter bød forsanger Chris Martin publikum velkommen ved at sige “Godaften allesammen” på et meget gebrokkent dansk, og takkede for det stærke fremmøde på trods af kulde og blæst. The concert began with the song Life in Technicolor by Coldplay latest album, followed by the hit Violet Hill. Then bade frontman Chris Martin welcomed the audience by saying "Good evening all together" at a very gebrokkent Danish, and thanked for the strong turnout despite the cold and wind . Herefter fik tilskuerene glæden af at høre storhittet In My Place, hvor Chris Martin meget energisk løb frem og tilbage på den kæmpe scene, hvorpå der var tilføjet to podier, der stak ud blandt publikum. Then spectators had the pleasure of hearing big hit "In My Place, where Chris Martin very energetic ran back and forth on the fight scene, which had added two podiums, which stuck out in the audience. Den mand har åbenbart en fremragende kondi, da der ikke var den mindste forpustelse at spore i hans vokal, på trods af, at han altså fik løbet sig noget af en tur. The man clearly has an excellent fitness, as there was the slightest breath to track his vocals, in spite of the fact that he made the course somewhat of a turn. Begrejstringen – hos publikum såvel som bandet – var stadigt stigende, især da det efterfølgende nummer bestod af endnu et megahit, nemlig Y ellow fra bandets debutskive: Parachutes. Her var hele scenen oplyst i et gult skær alt imens der rullede store gule balloner Begrejstringen - with the audience as well as the band - was steadily increasing, especially since the subsequent number consisted of another megahit, namely Y ellow from the band's debut disc: Parachutes. Here was the whole scene disclosed in a yellow glow all while having rolled big yellow balloons henover publikum . Især under Yellow gik der stadionrock i stemningen, da Chris Martin til slut bad publikum synge sangen for ham, mens han selv tog sig en slapper på et af podierne. over the audience. Especially the yellow went to stadium rock into the atmosphere when Chris Martin finally asked the audience to sing the song for him while he took a slapper at the podium.

Herefter faldt pulsen en kende, idet de mere stille og mindre kendte sange indfandt sig, eksempelvis London Cemetaries og 42, for derefter at få publikum helt op at ringe igen med de prægtige numre Fix You og Speed of Sound Then fell a pulse known as the quieter and lesser known songs materialize, such as London Cemetaries and 42, then to get the audience up to ring again with the gorgeous numbers Fix You and Speed of Sound fra X & Y- albummet. from X & Y album. Under sidstnævnte fremvistes en særdeles velpassende video på storskærmen, der nu fyldte hele bagtæppet. During the latter showed a very velpassende video on big screen, now filled the entire backdrop. Den førte publikum væk fra arenaen og ud i rummet med en masse laserstråler, stjerner og store planeter. It led the audience away from the arena and out into space with a lot of laser beams, stars and large planets. Dernæst forsvandt bandet fra scenen, mens de under spotlight bevægede sig helt ned i den anden ende af arenaen for at fremføre blandt andet Till Kingdom Come og Green Eyes . Then the band disappeared from the scene, while the spotlight moved right down the other end of the arena to present among other Till Kingdom Come and Green Eyes. Inden bandet igen vendte snuden mod den store scene, opførte de Michael Jackson hittet: Billie Jean, hvilket vakte begejstring hos publikum, men ikke så meget hos undertegnede, da kvaliteten af nummeret ikke var i top. Before the band again turned its nose against the big scene, entered the hit Michael Jackson: Billie Jean, which caused excitement in the audience, but not so much with myself, because the quality of the track was not in the top. Måske fordi de eneste instrumenter, som var medbragt på det lille podie, bestod af et par guitarer, men også på grund af, at lyden nede bagved var væsentligt forringet i forhold til det ellers fremragende lydbillede, Outdoor Arena lagde for dagen. Perhaps because the only instruments that were brought to the small podium consisted of a couple of guitars, but also because of the sound down behind was significantly impaired compared with the otherwise excellent soundstage, Outdoor Arena presented for days. Det kan tænkes at have været genkendelsens glæde, der begejstrede publikum. It might have been spotting joy that thrilled the audience. Generelt fungerede det ikke optimalt, at bandet rykkede sig helt ned i den anden ende af arenaen, og mon ikke de, der havde betalt på den gode side af 600 kr. for deres inderscene billetter, havde det på samme måde. Generally it is not working optimally, the band marched right down the other end of the arena, and I wonder if those who had paid on the good side of £ 600 on their inner arena tickets, felt the same way.

Da bandet igen indfandt sig på den store scene opførte de Lovers in Japan fra deres nyeste album, hvor publikum blev beriget med konfetti formet som sommerfugle i alverdens farver, hvilket i den grad satte gang i stemningen igen, inden bandet takkede af med To Death and All His Friends. Since the band again arrived on the big stage entered the Lovers in Japan "from their newest album, where the audience was enriched with confetti shaped like butterflies in all sorts of colors, so much sparked the mood to go before the band thanked the two Death and All His Friends.

Før bandet spillede deres ekstranumre, som blandt andet bestod af The Scientist, forsikrede Chris Martin publikum om, at han snart slap dem, med ordene: “We only have two more songs – the n you can go have fun”. Before the band played their encores, which among other things consisted of The Scientist, Chris Martin assured the audience that he soon released them, with the words: "We only have two more songs - the n you can go have fun." Ud fra publikums reaktioner at dømme havde “sjov” nu ikke været nogen mangelvare igennem denne koncert. Based on audience reactions to judge had "fun" now, been no shortage of goods through this concert.

Chris Martin afsluttede med at takke de to opvarmingsbands, men desværre havde Moi Caprice ikke sunget sig så dybt ind i Martins hjerte, at han kunne huske, hvad de hed. Chris Martin concluded by thanking the two heating bands, but unfortunately Moi Caprice not sung himself so deep into Martin's heart that he could remember what they called. Han takkede dem nemlig med ordene ” Thanks to White Lies and to…the band before them”. He thanked them for the words "Thanks to White Lies and two ... the band before them."

Alt i alt en fremragende oplevelse i Herning, der tilbød alt det, en stadionkoncert bør indeholde i form af balloner, fyrværkeri, sing-along og konfetti. All in all an excellent experience in Herning, offering everything a stadium concert should provide in the form of balloons, fireworks, sing-along and confetti. Coldplay selv havde eftersigende også en fortræffelig oplevelse, da de efter koncerten opdaterede deres Twitter-status med ordene: “Very much a first night no doubt, but the vibe of THAT many people & the huge new production is just beyond belief”. Coldplay had reportedly also an excellent experience, because after the concert update their Twitter status with the words: "Very much a first night no doubt, but the vibe of that many people & the huge new production is just beyond belief."

NB: Det viser sig, at Johnny fra Kandis er stor Coldplay-fan. Note: It turns out that Johnny from Candy is big Coldplay fan. I hvert fald var han denne aften til stede ved tribune A i Herning. At least he was this evening attended the grandstand A in Herning.

:wacky: It's one year ago today!!! I've been thinking about it most of the day. I'm wearing my red Viva La Vida t-shirt (the same as a year ago) and I've been listening to Coldplay. :wacky: Ah, I miss that night and Coldplay. I think it was the most amazing night of my life. :wacky:


I feel so bad for not keeping my word - I never wrote a 2nd part of my review, the actual concert. :disappointed: It would have been good for my own memory too. :(
Edit: Actually, now I think about it, if I concentrate some time, I would still be able to write it... :thinking:
