I hate to be negative here, but was I the only one who thought this was a really weak performance? Chris could barely sing. He often stopped singing completely & didn't finish complete phrases. I hope he gets a lot of vocal rest before the tour starts.

I thought they sounded great - Chris in particular. There were false starts and missed lyrics due to confusion but I'm pretty sure that was the fault of the show and not the band.

During the soundcheck he stopped singing to save his voice for the actual performance I think. You have to remember that it was 6:30am - he probably didn't have a lot of time to warm up.

I don't know...maybe being less than 5 feet or so from them was clouding my judgment:D

Yeah, I thought he was really good myself. The only time I remember him sounding downright terrible was during Yellow (which I think would be the reason they cut it). He even acknowledged that himself during that performance, though.

And he did stop singing the end of In My Place when he was in the middle of the crowd, but that was more from sheer amazement, I think. If you watch the bit online, it seems like he's basically thinking to himself, "I can't believe there's so many people here at this time." Really good stuff, actually.

Hmm...well maybe it was because of the confusion with them not knowing when exactly songs were live and when they were just rehersal. I think that's what was happening, right?

That's good to hear though, that you guys who were there thought it went well....because I'm seeing them next tuesday for the first time so I really want it to be great. I can't wait! :)

i agree with your last para. he was looking around in amazement, like oh my god look at this amazing city and all of these people getting up so early to see us.

? about Today show concert

I was watching the concert on you Tube and it seems that when the guys came out,none of them even acknowledged the crowd except for Chris.

Chris looked at crowd,took off his hat and then said Good morning.The other guys didnt even look at the crowd Is that how it really happened???

Well they were out doing soundchecks for a while, talking with the crowd about how damn early it was and laughing. Half the stuff they did wasn't shown on the actual show, specifically, they only showed the ending of In My Place.

Also during soundchecks they did an acoustic version of Yellow around one mic.

Dig through the TODAY show thread, there's a bunch of really awesome videos and pictures from both during the televised parts and the soundcheck.

I thought they were quite personable, mostly Chris of course.
