You're welcome! Glad to share!Wow! The Xylobands look so pretty from where you are sitting. You really get the full effect! Thanks so much for posting.
I know how you feel! I was debating about pictures or watching the show mostly with my own eyes. Just having a good time and watching prevailed, although I got some pictures and video, since the seats I had were the closest to the stage I've ever had before. No rush on your next video lol!You're welcome! Glad to share!
And yes...it was so hard to pay attention up there! The good thing was I was surrounded by real fans and nobody was drunk or spilt any beer down my back. Besides you're asking for a case of vertigo if you get drunk up there at that level!
Anyway, I was in sensory overload...shoot, it also didn't help that I'm a visual person as well! I couldn't remember the words to the songs, and I was debating taking pics or enjoying the show...I was a mess up there! I do have a butt-load of pics I took, but right now they are only loaded into my Facebook account. I would have to stop and upload them to my Photobucket account for all to see.
And too I have one more small clip to upload as well. I'm in the middle of it right now...damn, Youtube is slow all of the sudden!
You're welcome! Glad you liked them!thanks for the awesome vids, @allegra
That's awesome footage! I was too damn excited to hand the camera still. :lol:You're welcome! Glad you liked them!
Wish I had enough room to record the whole show, but I was running out of space due to the fact I take tons of pics of my son.
Next time I'll make sure to devote a whole card to it...especially now that I see how easy it is to take video with my Lumix...sorry folks I'm a little bit slow on technology but I'm learning! I'm more of a picture takin' kind of gal...you know old school.
I did the same thing with the setlist. I forced myself to stop paying attention to what was being played. Of course, I knew what they would play, but like you, was surprised with the order. It helped give (some) surprise for the night!Before the show, I had really tried to steer clear from setlist postings and detailed reviews, because I wanted to retain an element of surprise for myself. I did know basically which songs they'd be playing, but not in what order, and I'm glad I'd kind of kept myself from memorizing the setlist, like I'd done for the Viva shows. I loved the confetti and balloons for In My Place and Lovers and Japan, the latter of which remains one of my favorite songs to hear live. I loved how they re-arranged Yellow, with Chris starting out alone on the piano; it was beautiful. I also love the new arrangement of GPASUYF with the building lead-in and Will just going crazy on the drums. But the highlights of the night for me were probably the absolutely gorgeous Warning Sign, which I'd never heard live before, and the acoustic version of Speed of Sound. I was so happy to hear them play it, since it was completely left out of the VLV tour, and that version was really lovely.
Though our seats were far from perfect, we still had a really great view, and did really get to enjoy the light and stage show in all its glory. The lasers during Don't Let it Break Your Heart, and of course, Clocks were very cool. I also noticed big inflatable (I think) MX symbols positioned at different stairwells during DLIBYH. They were huge, and all lit-up, but the only one I could really make out from where I was was the Paradise butterfly. The others just looked like non-descript blobs from the angle I had. It was pretty cool, but it seemed kind of odd that they were only out for that one song, and that they weren't more scattered throughout the arena. From what I could tell, they were only in the 300 level... which now that I think about it is kind of cool... the guys' way of saying "hi" to us way up in the "cheap seats".
As with everything you don't want to end, the show passed so quickly, and before I knew it, we were dancing around to Every Teardrop is a Waterfall. At the end of the night, the crowd was euphoric, the guys had sounded absolutely amazing- including Chris' voice, which was pretty much perfect- and I had a huge smile on my face. Though I wish I could have been there for the second Dallas show the following night, and the 2 shows in Houston, I am so thrilled I was there at all, and am so, so impressed with the show Coldplay put on. I think it'll be hard for them to top it going forward, but I can't wait to see them try!
I have a few not-so-good pictures and some shaky (couldn't stop dancing!) videos, that I'll try to post soon.
Lovers in Japan was what I was waiting for for a very long time.^Thanks!
yeah, I decided I wanted to be a little surprised this time around. I had checked earlier in the tour, and happened to see a show where they didn't play LIJ, so I wasn't expecting it, so I was actually pleasantly surprised to hear it in Dallas.
