Where does it come from that GOW, SS and Sparks are soundchecked? Sparks on the X-stage would be amazing... So many songs, The X-stage just has to do 5 songs or so, so many options.

All the videos of the MX/HLH intro with the flashing wrist bands don't do the moment justice - pure brilliance and a magical opening to a fantastic concert.

Coldplay rock Portland



Coldplay is an amazing band. I’ve been to a lot of concerts and I don’t think I’ve seen or been part of a crowd that was crazy from floor to nose bleeds. I’ve seen Coldplay once before at the Clark County Amphitheater a few years ago and like this show, they put on a rock show. Before they even went on stage the Rose Garden blew up with flashing lights. They weren’t your normal camera or cell phone or lighter, they were these amazing wristbands that had a huge sponsor logo on them from Twitter. They were not just wristbands but they were controlled by remote. They would flash, they would stay on and they would turn off. All at various times during the show. It was like the applause sign at a live taping of a tv show. Almost reminding people to go crazy. It wasn’t like they needed it, Coldplay puts on one of the best live shows around. It’s been over 10 years since they played the Roseland Grill for their first show in the US. Yep, Coldplay played to what seemed like the most sold out show I’ve ever seen at the Rose Garden but their first show in the US was for a few dozen people at a venue’s 2nd stage for the radio station 94.7 KNRK over 10 years earlier.

wow, Portland seems to be a ghost town! other than the tweets and the vids Tash has found there's nothing on the web yet - no press reviews, fan blogs, nothing :(
Well, it IS only 8:45 am now...I'm sure more will be coming this morning :) My friend was there and she said it was "Spectacular. Mind blown."
