Hey everyone!!
Awesome show Tuesday night!! I'm just now home from Houston (and the show last night) and am just starting to upload pics and videos. We were in the pit, about 4 people back from the front, between Chris and Guy. Had a fantastic view of Guy and Will, Chris was a bit obscured by a tall guy in front of me, and the band's video camera. My husband and I were working with two cameras- mine cheap and crappy, his not so much. I'll be able to post my crappy pics and vids tonight or tomorrow, the others, probably not til this weekend.

I'll have a review, too but here's a little something for now. This vid is of Chris' "evil" laugh and The Scientist. I apologize for the poor quality, but hopefully, you'll get the idea. It was hilarious. He also looked RIGHT AT ME during this part, but of course, my camera didn't catch that much detail :bigcry:
Anyway, here's the video for now:

I'll try to upload more tonight and tomorrow! It was a great show... Got to meet Super Angie, and I saw Allegra and MrMan (though I didn't know it was them at the time!)

Ok, finally have my Dallas videos uploading - there are a lot of them, ha, but I got some good ones. Some not so good since my finger was over the microphone I think *doh!*

Those vids are great ! You were really close when Chris ran for VLV !

And I'm so jealous that they played Trouble, one of my fav songs ever :wacky:
Why did they play it only one time ?

Wow. so the pictures I took came out horribly. Makes me realize how badly I need a new camera. Here are a few...






you can check out the rest of my flikr photostream, too...

I didn't take that many... mainly focused on video. My husband had the better camera, and he got over 100 photos, so those should be good. Unfortunately, we have to wait for this weekend to upload them. I'll also try to write my review later tonight!

Chris messed up the lyrics and cut the song short saying "that's enough of that!" so I wasn't too surprised they went back to The Hardest Part in Houston the next night. If someone would get his ass down to the venue early and do some soundchecking, things like this wouldn't have to happen. hint hint. :rolleyes:

Hey Everyone!
Thanks for all the awesome pics and vids!!

Angie your video looks incredible. I'm jealous. It was great to meet you and your costume was FANTASTIC! :nice:

MrMan I'm so glad you had fun in the pit... I was crunched in the throng and had a little trouble seeing (and breathing at times!), but met some cool people and had fun.

Allegra-congrats on completing mission Cowboy hat!! That's awesome! I noticed you wearing the hat when I got into the pit and laughed when I saw Guy walking off stage with it! :)

This was the 2nd show for me on this tour and I had a really great time. Like I said, my husband and I were in the pit, about 4 people back from the stage, between Chris and Guy. The guys seemed to be in great form. Chris' voice was AMAZING. I thought he sounded better than he had in San Antonio last month. I had a great view of Guy, who was swaying around a bit, but didn't do much moving besides that. I did see a couple of smiles from him, though. Will was pounding away on those drums. My husband loves playing Rock Band and he was fascinated watching Will pound away all night. :rolleyes: Chris of course, was a crazy bundle of energy and it was really tough to get a good pic of him. He was playful during the show, talking about being attacked by the balloons during Yellow, and doing his hilarious "evil" laugh right before The Scientist. Unfortunately, I barely got to see Jonny at all, as my view of him was completely blocked. :(

The setlist of course, was the same, so I couldn't believe it when Chris said, "I'm just going to change the setlist here... I'll do this song, then the other and the other..." (or something like that :p). When he launched into Trouble I nearly had a heart attack. Of course, being in the pit, I couldn't see the b-stage at all, so I had to rely on the video screens. It was gorgeous while it lasted. He forgot the lyrics, "....hmm..hmm..hmm...in my little bubble" and ended it a bit short, but I loved it. I paid particular attention to 42 and Cemeteries of London that night, as I somehow had blocked them out from the SA concert. Really stellar, both of them. Strawberry Swing was just GORGEOUS. I love the little guitar "duet" Chris and Jonny do at the end... and watching Will and Guy lead the claps at the beginning and Chris guitar hanging on his back. :heart:

The crowd around me was a mixed bag... didn't seem to be too much singing or dancing going on on my side (aside from me :D) but people did seem into it. I thought the Dallas audience did a better job singing along and doing the viva chant than the audience in SA, but that might have just been where I was. :shrug:

As MrMan mentioned, Chris threw glow sticks out into the audience during Lost, and I thought that was a really cool touch. My husband had the better of our two cameras and took a lot of pics, so I'll be uploading those this weekend. I've done the ones I took with my camera (flikr link posted earlier in thread) and I'll post some youtube videos, too. Getting out of the venue (and getting LRLRL) was awful. They did a very poor job of organizing that, but we got it and were happy. :)

All in all, a really fabulous show.

Here's LIJ and Lost. Guy's bass pretty much killed the sound on these and they're nowhere near high quality and a little shaky. sorry. :D Hope you enjoy anyway!

I've got a few more videos I'll probably be uploading over the next couple of days or so.

Wow! Thanks everyone for sharing their pics and vids! Those are awesome! I can see myself in a few of them.

I didn't bring my camera, but my friend did. She just flew back home this afternoon, so it will be a little while before I can see hers and see if she's willing to share.

;)

Oh, and I'm glad y'all liked the :cowboy: hat story. I'm just wondering where it is now!

*still giddy as a school girl*

It was great meeting you also. You husband must have thought I was a nut job. I still can't believe I wore that crazy shit. :lol:

@Angie- nah... he was impressed by all the stories I told him about you. He's a huge music fan (but I'm the Coldplay lover in our house), so he can appreciate super fans! :D
