This man's name needs to be known. I need to write him a personal thank you! Anyone reckon it could have been Anchorman? Judging by the vines he was putting up he had access to everywhere in the Hall...
YOU SAY IT RIGHT !

I was not at any concert but when I heard from many lucky fans same story my first thought was..it could be ANCHORMAN :)

It's not Anchorman - he's English I think (at least he definitely doesn't have a strong regional British accent) and isn't ginger.

No, I said Ellen *thinks* it's Dick, and I don't think she was joking :|

Time for a review. Wednesday night was awesome! It was disappointing to be right at the back in Gallery standing but I'm just so grateful to have managed to have got a ticket 2 days before the gig! Not just that, but to be at final gig of the tiny little "tour"! I was at the statue meeting point just after 4pm, asked people if they were from the forum but they weren't. I enjoyed bumping into Coldplayers later outside the venue near the Box Office though :) I did try to make my way back to the statue at about 5:30pm but didn't manage to. Hopefully I'll meet more of you next time! I loved the atmosphere of the gig and sang along to every lyric to every song, I couldn't stop giggling when Chris made Jonny stop and start singing during Don't Panic . I love that the boys played Everything's Not Lost! I'm glad those of you who got upgraded to better seats did but I think it's a shame there were empty seats because of touts. I think it's kinda silly how Coldplay bought the seats at the front 'cos it's slightly unfair that some people got picked out to move there and loads of people didn't even get a chance. I was moaning about the empty seats to people next to me and they told me they actually asked staff if they could be moved but were told No. Maybe it would have been better if the general public could have bought front row seats. Then again, the touts might have snapped them up. I also found it irritating that our tickets got taken off us and the member of staff at the collection point seemed annoyed at having to give them back. I'm sure if he went to see his favourite band and his ticket with his name on got taken off him he'd want his back! Anyway, now to wait for a proper tour and no doubt distressing times trying to get tickets :p I'm glad those of you who managed to see the boys did and to those of you who didn't, I hope you do next time! x

I met him a couple of years ago. Though a new person could have taken on the 'role' I guess (?). Anyway it's probably worth asking him and/or Debs who 'Jesus' is and to pass on thanks :)

I just remembered a hilarious scene from the concert that I forgot to post in my review because it's not that important... but funny! :lol:

So I wrote about these annoying drunk people standing around me, right? As it appeared to be they all had very big circular stickers on their posh clothes with "VIP GUEST" or something like that written on them.
Jelena and I just rolled our eyes and tried to ignore them. But there was this one couple right in front of us, and the husband basically talked my face off before the concert :| He was like "Oh man wow it's so amazing haha wow oh man where do ye come from anyway? Great seats ay? Wow I'm so excited wowo haha looook at thaaaAAAT!!" which wasn't that annoying since he seemed to be an actual fan. but he just wouldn't stop talking and he was waving his arms around and was all over his wife that more or less kept still and put on a poker face :uhoh: So I told them we were from Germany and came all the way to see CP and he said "WoooOOOW so ya're some kind of superfan yah? WOW COOL how'd ya get tickets?"
Me: "From Gigs and Tours"
He: *confused face* "From where?"
Me: "Gigs. And. Tours. The website? Where you could buy the tickets?"
He: "uuuh. OH. A WEBSITE?"
Me: "YES. ON THE INTERNET. A. WEBSITE"
He: "Oh so you went online to buy the tickets"
Me: "Y E S."
He: "Didn't know you could buy them there hahah!"
Me: "Yeah it wasn't fun either, they sold out in 2 seconds :|"
He: "Haha wow sounds stressful HAHAHAH"
Me: *keeping poker face but kind of staring directly into his face* "So where did YOU get your tickets?"
He: *clears throat* "Oh, you know, friends, hahaha"
Me: "o-OH, Ah yeah, I see" And I tried to politely smile but I think way too much of deadly teeth showed LOL

So he turned around and kept being annoying. I felt sorry for his wife, she was just standing still and kept fighting his arms/hands/face off..

THEN, during ASFOS he turned around again (he kept turning around all the time actually and just wanted attention GOD) because I was catching my breath I just stood there and clapped and he yelled at me "COME ON GERMAN GIMME ALL YE'VE GOT COME ON YEE-"
and I gave him a death stare and yelled with all my might
"TURN. AROUND."
and he flinched, shut up and shrinked back to his previous position :lol: But the best part followed the second after: his wife, never facing me, suddenly turned around quickly, grinned at me, gave me two thumbs up before her hubby could see anything and turned to the band again! :laugh3:

God sometimes I really hate spoiled rich annoying people! :laugh3::sick:
