I think its safe to say that not ALL the people in attendance were contest winners... we know that now..:rolleyes: only 7,000 of the 10,000 were contest winners.... its a know fact record execs, label people, media etc... will have tickets aswell.... it just saddens me that no matter what this band does, there will always be haters and people who criticize them.... I'm glad Chris made a comment about it on the TODAY show... but it shows that he doesn't let the haters get to him... (referring to the joke he made about the soundcheck being the live gig and then they were done...lol)

so what there was no encore.. I got over that detail the moment I left MSG.... after looking at my footage on the train, I was happy I got to see them for free.... yet a second time.. and a total of 4x.... think of the countless number of others that didn't. Granted, I know everyone is entitled to their own opinion... tis what a message board is for... but I just wanted to voice my opinion as well.....



stop the slaggin people! Seriously! :p
You really couldn't have said it any better, LOL, I knew that there wasn't going to be tickets only for fans after I saw a full family of ... FOUR, dressed in all white, going into the box section by where I was ... I just thought it was supremely funny that the news articles spoke of the Celeb's who came and, I just kept saying to myself [sarcastically] "I wonder if they won tickets from the online raffle?!" ... LOL
That was almost one of the best free shows I ever got to be apart of ... But I am definitely not hating, because I cant wait till they announce their return to the Garden later this year!!!!

... Oops, did I just say that ... Me and my big mouth ;)

*dances* ahh haa! I knew it!!! I hope they come back around... I knew they would, but I thought they were booked through the end of the year.... I could defo see them coming back early next year..... but we'll all have to wait and see.... :wink3:

if you know Chris' humor... then I think you might have caught the comment.. lol he was all "Chris! You're an asshole! WHAT! WHAT! That's it?!!" when he joked that the soundcheck was the gig.. and we could all go home.... lol at least that's my interpetation of it.... :)


I heart him... :blush:

Chris Rock's opinion of the gig:

Via celebrity.myspace.com:
This week my assignment was to see Coldplay at Madison Square Garden. Now being the only black guy can sometimes be dangerous like the time I was the only black guy at an ACDC concert in Prague. There not use to seeing black people at all in Prague, but a black guy singing “hells bells” was just a little to much for them to take. Now I didn’t know what to expect from a Coldplay concert, but I figured I wasn’t gonna get stabbed in the middle of “yellow.” Anyway the concert was pretty good. I thought it was a perfect mix of old and new songs and I gotta say that when they did something from the new album Chris Martin was smart enough not to say the words you hate to here the most at a concert; ” This is something from our new album.” That’s like saying this is a good time to take a shit.Anyway when they did a new song they just did it and it seemed to fit right in with the old stuff. I didn’t know the names of any of the new songs, but the white people next to me seemed to know every word. If I have any complaints I thought Chris Martin might of mentioned the fact that the concert was free a few too many times. I thought it was a little obnoxious. If you pay for dinner just pay for it, don’t say to me you like that free food. Free food is good ain’t it. Again the white people seemed happy with it, but as the only black guy there I thought he might be talking to me. My other complaint was the use of pre record music and drum machines at one point I thought they were gonna sing rhythm nation, but other than those two things I thought it was a great concert. When they went into the crowd and did a striped down version of “yellow” I thought that was the highlight of a great night. Music critics like to compare Coldplay to Radiohead and that’s not fare. Coldplay is no Radiohead and Radiohead is no Coldplay. You can understand every word to a Coldplay song the first time you hear it. Nothing wrong with that. If anything, Coldplay kind of reminds me of a British Hall and Oates. In the eighties what did a pop record song like? It sounded like Darryl Hall. And now what does a pop record sound like? It sounds like Chris Martin. Any way I don’t know when the next concert is and I don’t know where it is but don’t worry you’ll see me because I’ll be the only black guy there.

Glad to see I'm not the only one who was (mildly) bothered by the abundance pre-recorded music. Now, please flame on Mr. Rock like you did for me...
