^ :lol: Chris looks slightly crazy there xD
Okay, I downloaded the video using Realplayer and watched it in full screen. The frame skipping problem I was having when streaming the You Tube video is now gone. I do see the critical frames in question around the 3:08 mark. It does *appear* that he might have pecked or on the cheek, but based on what her husband tweeted me in response, I'd say it was more of low altitude photobombing...You can see it better in the full screen mode. Despite what the girl's husband has said... it looks like a kiss to me. I mean he leans in and appears to touch her cheek with his lips. Maybe it was just a brush or a peck. lol
Very cool story! Coldplay's ticket upgrade process was something with which I was unfamiliar. I had heard mention of it here and there, but never really looked into what it fully meant until seeing your mention of it related to the Charlotte concert. I bet it's a night you'll never forget... thanks for sharing it with us!I haven't posted here in so long and I have an embarrassing middle school username but this has to go here.
I got upgraded to front row and Will threw me and my friend his drumsticks! I can't even believe that it really happened, I just... wow. It was absolutely amazing!
A better version of the story is here for anyone who wants to read it:
Thanks... I went there and discovered that I was already registered. I made some edits to my review and it now gives the appearance that I at least may have passed 9th grade English Grammar and CompositionFeel free to register and update it yourself as you see fit!
I didn't even get there early! It was a three hour drive and I had to wait for the people I was going with to get off work, so I didn't get there until around 7:20. At first I was upset because I wanted to be there all day, but it worked out perfectly! Good luck to you, and I hope that no matter where you end up sitting that it's amazing!That is such a cool story!!! How early did you get there to get upgraded? I have similar seats for the Detroit Show!
I just LOVE IT when he does stuff like this !!!!!Oh, one other comedic moment from last night... how about when Chris was trying to localize the lyrics in God Put a Smile Upon Your Face, and he sang (loosely paraphrasing) "20,000 North Carolinan's gathered in one place"... then he pauses and reflects - "I'm not sure that's the proper collective for Carolina... pretty sure it's not" Priceless
As I said earlier in this thread, this "upgrading tickets" routine is totally foreign to me. I didn't really understand what people actually meant by it when using the term until the day after we attended the concert. My group was sitting on the top row of the lower mezzanine, in section 102. I don't think the upgrade scouts passed through our area, but I would have liked to watched their MO. I'm curious as to what sort of marching orders they're given when they are dispatched to do their mission?I got passed over twice. Knowing their routine, two crew members walked right by me and my wife (stepping on her foot twice) who were in the nosebleeds, but not quite far enough back.
Bruce Springsteen has been upgrading fans for 20 years! Did you read Roadie 42s latest blog on www.coldplay.com?As I said earlier in this thread, this "upgrading tickets" routine is totally foreign to me.

I wouldn't know what official Coldplay "crew" attire would look like if I saw it.... what were they wearing?
I wasn't aware of Springsteen's practice with this either. Not really a Springsteen fan, so I really didn't pay enough attention to have noticed.
Mucho thanko Tash... your omniscience of all things Coldplay is amazing! My recollection of that event was not complete. I thought he started the song off with "Where do we go to draw the line?" I think that's the longest I've ever seen Chris Martin go explaining a verbal gaff
