coldplay.

First, let me just say how much I love Coldplay.


I LOVE COLDPLAY!

After several months of waiting, the concert was finally tonight. I’ve never been so excited in my life. Craig and Princess bought me tickets for my birthday. They bought the tickets in like April, my birthday is in June and the concert was supposed to be July 12. Apparently, somewhere along the line, Coldplay (or their people) got smart and realized Phoenix in July probably wasn’t the smartest idea. Hence, the show was moved to tonight. Craig and Princess were kind enough to get me two tickets so I could invite a friend. I invited my girl L-Cro! She’s the one that introduced me to Coldplay and I thought it was only fitting that I bring her along.

Everyone met up at my place and we headed off for some dinner. Two Long Island Ice Teas later (thank you Lindsey), we were off to the show in Glendale at jobing.com arena. We were a little late and missed Sleepercar, which I was kinda bummed about. However, we had the unfortunate luck to not miss Jon Hopkins. Let’s just say, I’m not a fan of trance type music. It has it’s time and place, but the Coldplay concert was not it.

Finally it was time for Coldplay and the show rocked! The sound was great, the band was energetic, the lights and set were good and the video screens were like MTV (according to Lindsey). They sounded great and I got chills when they started singing Clocks. There were a few times when they moved out into the crowd and sang a few songs. Chris Martin did a piano solo of The Hardest Part, which I really enjoyed.

Overall, the show really cemented how I feel about Coldplay and their music. They are amazing and will forever be my favorite band. At one point I got so caught up in the music I completely stopped listening to the lyrics… which is funny, because the lyrics are one of the things I love most about their music. They sing some pretty powerful and meaning songs.

They didn’t play two of my favorite songs (Green Eyes and Warning Sign), but it didn’t matter because the set list was pretty amazing. They even kind of mixed up a few of the songs into like a club mix, which was awesome.

Coldplay delivers solid performance



British rock group Coldplay wrapped up its North American tour Wednesday in Glendale with a solid, understated performance.

"You can't do an American tour without finishing in Phoenix, Arizona," said singer Chris Martin, who could be forgiven for his slight geographical slip-up.
Coldplay is one of the most dependable touring bands in rock these days, and the group's 90-minute set gave the near-sellout crowd at Jobing.com Arena plenty of well-executed anthems.

Clocks, Yellow, Speed of Sound and the title track from the band's latest album, Viva La Vida or Death and All His Friends, all were delivered with precision.

This tour was one of the Grammy-winning group's largest undertakings in terms of staging, with a huge screen occasionally used for videos, intense strobe lights, scores of lasers and intriguing illuminated globes that alternately held artsy designs and images of band members.

Martin hopped and bounded all over the stage, often playing a guitar instead of his signature standup piano.

Bandmates Jonny Buckland (guitar), Will Champion (drums) and Guy Berryman (bass) were content to hold their positions until the curly-haired Martin dropped by to give them a hug or a good-natured shove.

Much of the concert spotlighted this year's Viva La Vida album, with the crowd singing along to such new classics as Violet Hill and Lost!

A highlight of the new material was a haunting-yet-sleek version of Cemeteries of London.

Martin slid behind his famed upright piano for another strong new tune, 42, a slow song building to a climax in which the singer jokingly stuck out his tongue.

The band took to a small stage sticking out into the crowd to pick a few favorites, including 2002's God Put a Smile Upon Your Face. Martin took a solo on 2006's The Hardest Part, playing a nice extended piano solo as the song wound down.

Later, the group ventured into a far corner of the arena and delighted ticketholders in that section by mounting a small, hidden stage to perform a few songs.

"Here's an old song, and it's not even that good a song. But it means something to us," Martin said, in introducing The Scientist. The audience disagreed, going crazy when Martin played a harmonica as other band members strummed guitars and a mandolin.

Coldplay mixed things up just enough to keep it interesting, and although Martin will never be compared to Bono or Jagger, his low-key stage demeanor strongly connects with a younger generation that doesn't demand bombast in its rock stars.

Wow...If you watch this video, you can see when after Yellow Chris points at me and comes over to give me the setlist!!! And then he double takes when the security guard gave it to the wrong person. It sucks that they have to rush out after the show!
