Haha, no worries.:) It's been Jonny every night since almost the start of the tour, so I'd be surprised if it was Guy last night, but I haven't seen video...
ya, i PROBABLY should've checked the video...it's jonny....ha! okay, i'll update it. cheers for catching the mistake. i'm not perfect - my dad was right :(

thanks, super fans! (man, I haven't been on a fan message board in years - used to be on a radiohead one for about 5 yrs. good times!)

I HAVE SEEN COLDPLAY TWICE AT THE O2,BOTH WERE AMAZING,BUT THE ATMOSPHERE LAST NIGHT I'VE NEVER EXPERIENCED BEFORE 60.000 FANS MOULDED INTO ONE.IT WAS CLEAR FROM THE START THEY WERE GOING TO HIT THE GROUND RUNNING,INVITE US ALONG AND NEVER LET UP.THEY TOTALLY LIT UP LONDON,AND DOUBLESS COULD HAVE FILLED AND LIT UP 3 MORE STADIUMS.A HUGE THANK YOU TO THE BAND,THEY ALWAYS GIVE 150 % I GET QUITE EMOTIONAL SOMETIMES JUST THINKING ABOUT THEM-BUT THAT'S BECAUSE THEY WORK SO HARD,ARE SO MODEST,AND YET ARE THE BEST BAND ON THIS EARTH MY MILES.A PERFECT NIGHT,BLESS YOU COLDPLAY AMAZED AND EXCITED AGAIN.

Hey guys, I'm the one that wrote that Coldplay review, and saw a bunch of hits from this site, so thought I'd check it out. My apologies for the mistake - so it was Jonny was sung the "oh yeah" part at the end? I could've sworn it was Guy. I even had my Coldplay 101 Guide in my pocket! I might've been too busy catching confetti though. Cheers
LOL. It's fine. Most of us here are diehards and have the current shows and set lists and everything that happens somewhat memorized. Jonny plays guitar(s) and Guy plays bass. Guy is the one Chris most often refers to as "the handsome one." Glad you enjoyed the show.

Hi!
I just came home from London.
I went to the gig on Saturday but then decided to try also on Monday.
I was trying to buy the ticket at the stadium but it seemed impossible at first, there were only touts selling for horrible prices. They were like rats running around trying to buy from people and sell expensively. I was getting desperate but then an Irish guy came to me and asked if I want a ticket. He wanted even less than the face value but I paid him the face value of course.
If he's on the board, thank you so much again!

It was quite late when I got inside, so I decided to go to the same spot as I had on Saturday, which was right at the C-stage.
I think it was better to be so close at least for the two songs than to be somewhere in the middle of the stadium for the whole show.

The show was amazing, it felt a bit different than on Sat. also because of the weather. It seemed like there were much more people, at least where I was standing. On Sat. there was a lot of space to jump and dance and on Mon. I could hardly move. But the energy was fantastic.

I don't have any good pictures so won't bother you with the few I took.
I'll upload them later and put in my sig.

Thanks everyone for pictures and videos!

RITA CRAP

Sun setting over the Emirates now. Beautful. Best stadium in the prem? 2nd in England to Wembley? #Emirates #Coldplay


@bugsss1
Choosing robyn as a support act was clever for Coldplay as it makes you more and more desperate for actual music. #coldplay #coldplayfilm


@ptarverjones
Wow! #luckyfamily #coldplay

APPRECIATE THEM

Thanks mate :)

Pegg was diabolical, I just want to forget him, and feel so sorry for people who didn't get a proper version of Speed of Sound like we did on Saturday :( No-one from club level up seemed to recognise him anyway, so I really don't get the point. Anyway, I'll shut up about this now! While it certainly wasn't the high point, I need to focus on the rest of the gig which was, as usual, tremendous :)
FOR GOD SAKE HE'S ONE OF COLDPLAYS OLDEST FRIENDS-OK WASN'T THE NORMAL EXCELLENT VERSION,BUT IT WAS FUN,SHOWS YOUR LOYALTY TO THE BAND...:rolleyes::rolleyes:

Hi ... does anyone know the tape music list played after Rpbyn and before Coldplay came out? Was about 4-5 songs played none of which I knew except the JayZ track, but were excellent. Anyone know what they were?
Before 99 problems they usually play "How do I know" by Here We Go Magic.
That's all I know :).

Was tempted to go Monday on my own also but didn't want to get ripped off by a tout!

Watched back my video of the start, and noticed that the timing of the very beginning of Hurts Like Heaven is completely off- the little piano riff and the fireworks start about a second early, and it threw me completely singing along :D But the band, the pros that they are, didn't even flinch. :cool:

:) Many thanks for that......you are absolutely right, never heard it before and just looked it up and is exactly the one. Think there were about three more before the two tracks we do now know....they were sort of ambient tracks.

But this is great, many thanks for replying and helping me. Greatly appreciated.

Anyone else know any of the others? The warm up tracks at these events are often really good but hard to find. Certainly not to take anything away from the main event who were super.....worth the 4 hour drive for sure.

Wait is this Tash? She sprained her ankle? :sad:
That's me!

yup :( think she's ok though
This is what happened:

I was one of the first people who got through the turnstiles at entrance S but I was a bit behind because I forgot to grab a xyloband. I decided to run down the stairs taking two steps at the same time (just like I did on Saturday) and it went perfectly until I was almost downstairs. I think I stumbled or whatever and I fell on my knees and hands. Laura was behind me and stopped but I told her to keep running. After a couple of seconds I managed to get up and I somehow managed to reach the barrier where I sat down and freaked out. Within seconds there were 4 security guards standing in front of me. The medics arrived soon after that. They needed to take me backstage to threat my ankle but I made them promise me that I could return to front row otherwise I wouldn't leave! :lol:
Backstage they took care of me and put a bandage around my ankle and gave me some painkillers. I'm not sure how long I was there, probably 15/30 minutes. A medic brought me back to the stage where I asked the security guards if I could return to my old spot. The head of security recognized me and escorted me back to where the others where standing and with a little bit of help I climbed over the barrier.
I took the bandage of when I got back home late last night, it's still really swollen end it's completely blue. But I can walk around so I'll be fine! :nice:

Oh wow, that must have hurt. I'm glad you were able to make it back to your spot!
And you've been backstage, that's pretty cool. ;)

We saw you walk past, Tash. No idea it was you though.
I thought you had been crushed, no idea why. Hope you enjoyed it nevertheless!
