Anyone flying from Stansted this afternoon? Wanna meet up for coffee? I'll be there from around 3 to 5.

We were also the luckiest people in the entire place, if anyone saw the 2 six foot teenagers going fucking mental right in front of the band (one in a white GS top and the other in black), we really were NOT supposed to be there! We entered the RAH early and were pretty much the first 2 in, we sat down in our circle seats and (being my first Coldplay concert) I started to hyperventilate a little. A red haired scottish guy (who I shall only refer to as Jesus) came and sat next to us. We knew he was important as he had one of those little ID cards round his neck. At first, I thought me and my friend were in shit for some reason. THEN. He told us that the band had bought pretty much the entire front row and were giving the tickets out to PROPER fans. He must have noticed how hyper I was getting. Then he asked us to tell us why he should give us these tickets. So I went on a huge tangent about how I had learnt A LOAD of their songs by ear on piano and my album collection was nearly a foot high now. (My friend isn't that much of a fan, even right now I'm trying to bully him into taking the 5 mile trek to the Bakery with me, so he just let me talk really). Anyways, Jesus replied "fair enough, I'll give you these tickets on one condition: you have a fucking awesome time." I was almost crying as we sprinted all the way down to the arena. I'll post a full review later on, but if any one here knows a member of the Coldplay crew who is scottish and has a ginger beard PM ME HIS NAME! I need to write him a full letter on how awesome he is!

Now then, that is a band who knows the right thing to do... What an experience!!!

Back home after a wonderful day in London and all I can say is WOW, that gig!!! I still can't quite believe that it happened! Don't think I've come down off Cloud 9 yet to be honest. The venue was as magnificent as I knew it was going to be, I loved the setlist (I know people are a bit grouchy that it was the same as the 1st, but I don't care!) and the atmosphere was magical - as Chris said, what an audience. Coldplay just know how to make a girl deliriously happy :D Jonny singing must've been my favourite thing in the whole world (plus the kiss! The KISS!!!) and then when Chris and Will came up to the stage for Viva, and Chris was about 50cm away from me... and I think I touched his arm!!!! :dead: I went into complete shock and adrenaline rush then, I was properly shaking! The best night ever, thank you so much Coldplay :heart:

It was a magical concert indeed !
I was in Paris for the last one at the "Casino de Paris" and it was short, now I am completed happy ! The place is stunning, it left me with an impression of a small concert in a big room !
The atmosphere and the audience was very very cool, first time I saw them in their home country it's nice.

Take several pictures: https://flic.kr/s/aHsjZr2oiv

I've just discovered I'm in one of the band's photos :D I'm rather creepily reaching out to Chris when he was up on the main stage... no surprise there then :laugh3:

Wow! That's incredible! I think you were in my block (originally) (I was the one in the red polo, front row, seat next to the door.) I bet you enjoyed that! (I mistimed my journey to the toilet actually, the Scottish guy had been and gone by time I got back to my seat. I highly doubt I would have been upgraded anyway since I was rather calm considering I was about to see Coldplay)

The gig was still fucking awesome from the gods though! I'll post a full review later of my thoughts.

Nice photos everyone! It was nice to see a couple of Coldplayers coming from different countries yesterday. Hopefully, I will get to meet more of Coldplayers in the future! :)
