I think that it said what he needed to say as an intro for the Stand up for Cancer video!Sorry, I have another question, don't hate me xD
During Paradise, if you watch the video posted on this thread, around 5:10 Chris takes a sheet. Does anybody know what is it? I was thinking about the phonetics transcription of some phrases in Swedish.
The evening's first act was the young British talent shot Charli XCX - you know she wrote Icona Pop's summer plague I Love It. Following appearances on both Hornstullstrand and Hultsfred Festival earlier this year, she played now facing its biggest ever audience Sweden. She interpreted through Echo and the Bunny Men's post punk 80's classic The Killing Moon without the weirdness. Her sometimes gothic, sometimes sleazy sugar sweet electropop may not directly involve all of the Coldplay fans who chose to come early (to be committed to the world's biggest bands is not always a rewarding task) but songs like Stay Awake and Nuclear Season is strong enough her to come away with a clear pass. During the last song You're the One, she begins tokdansa their gigantic platform shoes despite, unfortunately, does not exude Marina and the Diamonds who takes over the stage afterwards the same energy. She is just a shadow of its former self. Maybe it depends on the speaker system, but her voice is actually quite painful to listen to.
But when Coldplay well stepping on stage removes all doubt. Chris Martin is at stake mood and radiates an energy that few other front veterans are capable of when he throws himself around the stage. It had been distributed wristbands to all visitors. They all began to light up the Stockholm Stadion in different colors while Coldplay kicked off - which along with confetti, fire and laser lodged a powerful feeling.
Låtmässigt can discuss about Mylo Xyloto is the same class as their previous records but have seen the show invites Coldplay without a doubt one of the summer's best concerts. It is majestic from the first to the last moment.
Just as the euphoria from the concert start being ebb performed In My Place and the atmosphere is again on top. And if there is one word that describes Lovers in Japan, it is well just euphoria? We had certainly passed us without Rihanna-hologram of Princess of China and Paradise had hardly been necessary played twice (the second time was filmed there in charity), but it's such lågdalar you have to put up with in order to fully be able to appreciate such as Viva La Roomy, singing the allsångslåt, who even got the guards to sing along.
Possibly felt closure with Every Teardrop is a Waterfall by including Clocks and Fix You somewhat tame - not least in relation to the pompous introduction. When the lights came on again, I was not completely satisfied. Coldplay had been happy to continue to play the night out, but also the most beautiful dreams come to an end. And to see Coldplay live tonight feels just like a dream, everything is so uppvridet that I can hardly believe it's true. Coldplay have never been better live than they are right now.
^ I'll try to translate quickly. My English tho... feel free to laugh and will you help me make it understandable?
COLDPLAY IS A PURE PRIMORDIAL FORCE
The quartet makes every song an encore.
Never thought I'd use these two words in the same sentence. But Coldplay is pure primordial force.
You can't defend yourself from this arena bang.
The start is nothing but phenomenal.
Like a runaway circus Coldplay turn up all controls they can find behind the huge Stadion stage. Everything's happening. Fireworks salsa dancing across the ceiling, the crowd neon glittering from the Coldplay controlled wristbands they got at the entrance and the band members peeping up among all the confetti that filled the arena aldready in the second song.
It's a bang. Even by stadium measures.
Now and then Coldplay's show is a monumental display of the band's live performances over the past five years. The explosions and the millimeter fitted choreography that only bands with many years experience of huge stages, a stable peak shape and a bit too much money can achieve.
"Choice of songs hampers"
Still the Brits don't make it all the way. When the band want to slow down halfway through at the end of the runway they don't lose energy only. The songs don't hit and Coldplay have to spend the same amount of time to get back on top that it took to play them.
Dynamic is needed, of course. But the choice of songs hampers a really great atmosphere.
Cause when it's back, as in the finale with "Every teardrop is a waterfall", Coldplay is an irresistable visual arena force few, U2 only, can reach today.
In Copenhagen on Tuesday, the band almost hit the 5+ barrier (this newspaper's grading system). And when 33 000 Swedes in 15 minutes have created the same atmosphere as over 50 000 Danes did then, I truly believe the band will score.
Coldplay have polished all their arena manners and it's not just about fireworks, confetti, balloons and other proven megalomania. The London quartet makes every song an encore. The huge round screens filling almost the whole back of the stage makes the band's presence burning and some songs sounds like an oversteered g-force about to push them through the ground.

"Hurts like Heaven"
Pitch dark at Stadion, only mobile phones glowing. Then it breaks loose. Coldplay light up the thousands of wristbands people got at the entrance - and turns the arena into a neon glittering inferno. While the fireworks explode over Stadion. This is truly one of the most powerful opening numbers I've seen a band at this level do.
"In My Place"
Second song. Second time with goosebumps, already. Coldplay swirling around in an annual consumption of confetti. Chris Martin seem to be really on tonight. Just like the crowd.
Martin sucking up a bit for the crowd andsays we chose Coldplay over Gaga. Blood coloured stage that would make even Kent (Swedish band) proud. Amazing heat, volume and joy at Stadion.
"Lovers in Japan"
Balloon party Coldplay style. Beach balls, confetti and a bass drum rough as a musk ox bubbling around at Stadion.
I give up for now, the site keeps throwing me out every time I try to edit. I need to leave anyway, someone please continue
Or I'll do it later.
Thanks for all the pictures! Was a great night, am still kinda shocked
