Well, I spent a good $700 on getting there tonight from Adelaide and it was worth it just to be a part of the Charlie Brown spectacle. That was literally the best four minutes of my entire life. Amazing. The only thing I regret was not going last night as well. Lesson learnt.
WOW! Last night was pretty incredible! Definately the best time I had seen them.
I didn't get a recording of the whole gig, but I did record about 40mins worth of their concert (battery was getting flat as I had recorded the entire temper trap set...)
I will get the videos up at some point...
Aussie kid kills Chris Martin's ego with a line about Angus Stone
COLDPLAY dedicated a song to Australian singer Angus Stone during their second show at Sydney's Allianz Stadium - even though the band have no idea who he is.
Singer Chris Martin said the idea came from a fan who levelled his ego after Coldplay's run of stadium dates made him feel like "the best thing since sliced bread."
"This kid came up to me and said 'you guys are good but not as good as Angus Stone'," Martin told Sunday's sell-out crowd.
"I said I don't know who that is and now I have to check it out but I'd like to dedicate this song to Angus Stone who brought me back down to earth today."
Martin should have no problem accessing the ARIA-winning singer's back catalogue considering Coldplay and Stone share the same label, EMI.
"Everyone I spoke to said he's great and so I send him my love and respect and thank you to that kid for making me feel from a billion dollars right back down to about two dollars," Martin said before launching into the song Warning Sign.
Coldplay's Mylo Xyloto tour wraps up in Brisbane on Wednesday.
This is my video of Charlie Brown - sorry, don't know how to make it show up in here, so have linked it. I have watched it about a million times since Sunday night and I still cry every time. Please excuse the fact that it starts off sideways - my friend was filming it using my phone so I could enjoy the song.
