This actually isn't meant too mean, I guess. For claping like it's a Schlager song is like ... you know, people are busy clapping and don't pay so much attention on the song and Schlager is basicly for old people only. It's a lot slower than usually. You do like half notes which is a bit weird listening to Viva La Vida, for example. I experienced that at my show as well. :rolleyes:

Once again, a great concert! :cool: (Except for the weather maybe..)
I really hope someone recorded it!

Oh, I just discovered that the picture in the 2009 tour programme below the text "the greatest fans in the known universe" was taken from last year's show in the Hallenstadion, recognized a few faces there. :) Damn, just a little bit more to the left... oh well. :\

Coldplay concert in Bern, Switzerland 2.9.09

Thanks for Larry for translating the article with the Will article as I had not been able to start translating it until this morning as something else came up last night.
And I think that you did a really good work - thank you, Larry.

I have the intention of translating some "German" articles from the Swiss media such as the following:

http://www.20min.ch/unterhaltung/sounds/story/Die-Songs-waren-staerker-als-der-Platzregen-20044575

and Tagesanzeiger.ch/kultur (must have a review when it had the Will interview)

and www.bernerzeitung.ch/region which immediately after the concert ended had very beautiful pictures also seen on this thread. Accompanying the pictures (seen around 23.15 last night) was the headline (translated): "Coldplay rocked the Wankdorf Stadium". :)

Here is the first translation:

The songs were stronger than the downpour
by Nina Ladina Kurz / translated by Nancy Boysen

With their «Viva la Vida» world tour, Coldplay stopped off at the sold-out "Stade de Suisse" and offered a typical high-class Coldplay show

Almost one year ago Coldplay played in Zürich at the stadium "Zürcher Hallenstadion" and made their fans enthusiastic. On Wednesday 2 September, 2009 the four British Coldplay members visited Switzerland again - this time they played at the stadium "Stade de Suisse" in the Swiss capital Bern. In spite of the expensive tickets, the stadium was sold-out – and who was ready to spend the money on the expensive tickets was rewarded - in spite of the pouring rain.
Already at the beginning of the concert Coldplay played some of their anthems - hits such as «Violet Hill», «Clocks» and «Yellow». Leadsinger Chris Martin's infectious and like-able way of acting spread fast to the audience. An electronical dub version of «God Put a Smile Upon Your Face» and Martin's solo performance at the piano playing «The Hardest Part» followed. A little past 9.30 pm the concert was interrupted due to the pouring rain – to compensate for this Martin played the next song in the middle of the audience.
Coldplay on their side appeared to be impressed by their Swiss opening band Pegasus: After their gig they found five bottles of champagne in their dressing room – including a "thank you" note by Coldplay .

The next translations to follow.

Was it the Wankdorf stadium or the Stade de Suisse? Or are they the same thing?

Stade de Suisse, Wankdorf - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:
Stadium name: Stade de Suisse Wankdorf Bern. Total capacity: 31.783 people

The Stade de Suisse Wankdorf is a football stadium in Bern, Switzerland

Es ist das Stadion des Berner Fussballvereins BSC Young Boys (commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Category:Wankdorf_Stadium )

From the above it appears that the total stadium name is Stade de Suisse Wankdorf Bern and home stadium of "BSC Young Boys"
