I guess we are lucky...I just saw them August 3rd and am considering seeing them again. Do you think it will be the exact same show/setlist? As much as I love Coldplay, I would rather see them switch it up instead of the same exact routine...

I think I'm like, that close to getting another set of Coldplay tickets. I found out from live nation that Duffy is going to be the opening act and my dad likes Duffy but isn't a huge fan of Coldplay. (Don't worry-I'm working on him. He's starting to soften up to VLV.) My mother sounded excited, (she went with me) so, I think it's going to be the whole family going (my sister as well).

Woot! This sure beats giving out candy! I have a reprieve!

I love you Chris! Thank you for giving DC a second shot! We'll be a much louder audience!!

Really? I disagree - look at the setlists. The only variation might be one song that they play on the B stage (the catwalk). Other than that, its 99% the same.

i went to the aug 3rd show. my tickets were alright but i was still upset that i was a bit far away considering that i bought the tickets one minute after they went on sale from live nation.
does anyone have any tips for getting better tickets?

Hi everyone! I just saw my first Coldplay concert in DC on Aug 3...and ever since have been thinking I really want to see them again so I was psyched to hear the news today. I was in section 113 row N and they were great seats but not sure if I should get floor seats this time around.

I had semi-crap seats on August 3rd, but it didnt matter because I had the time of my life. I can't believe they're coming back to DC

^^ They only allow small digital cameras. If you have a professional one with the detachable lenses, you can't take pics. So, yes, a Cybershot is acceptable. :D

But, how big is it? Is it a professional sized one?

AAHHH! You have NO idea how happy I am about this! I saw them on 8/3 and it was the BEST night of my life, and I've been hoping they'd come back. I didn't have very good seats, though, so I'll definitely pay for the best seats this time. I'll ask my parents tomorrow since it's my birthday ;)

i was at the 8/3 show and it was great fun.. However, as someone mentioned they don't mix up their set lists and haven't at least since last tour. I went to both shows last tour, one in sept of 2005 and then the march 2006 show and the setlists were the same. And from what i have seen this tour it's no different. They have a big enough back catalogue that they could mix it up a bit. But they are choosing not to for whatever reason. I am not sure if I am gonna see them again in oct.
