The title of the next album and what is it about? Chris said that they already have a title but obviously won't tell it yet and he established that the next album is about "life"...

ColdPlay rattled to 40 thousand Bogota

The Attendees enjoyed the great successes of Londoners who showed a large-scale spectacle, typical of the best bands in the world.
Huge balloons suspended in the air and illuminated with inscriptions of "Viva la Vida 'and references to the album cover were the gadgets that the band use in tarimadel Parque Simón Bolívar.
Although the concert started at 8:45 pm, from early morning a group of young people flocked to the gates of the Park Event Square, despite the transport strike that plunged the ciudfad.
Speaking to Radio Santa Fe, several of the followers of this London group stated their excitement at the spectacle for which they paid tickets ranging between 120 and 305 thousand dollars or so.
"I live nearby and so arrive early, I came walking up here, because a band Coldplay is very important," said one fan of the group.
The asitentes are able to enjoy the songs that are already considered classics, like Lost ',' Death and All of His Friends' and almost start when the concert came the song 'Viva la vida' which sparked the euphoria and began to vibrate the floor of the park.
The English quartet led by Chris Martin, also played some of their more memorable, chorused by the public as 'The Scientist', 'Fix You', 'Clocks' or 'Yellow'.
The best of the show were the many surprises and special effects that enlivened the concert and with the band gained a hearing for a week endured a city without public transportation, but patiently waited until the final hour.

Did anyone notice if there were ticket scalpers outside the venues of any of the recent shows? I know someone who is going to Guadalajara in hopes of running into a ticket scalper before the show. If he doesn't find one, then that means it would be a waste in terms of the airplane ticket. :\ I'm just curious what his chances are...

Q. Hey dear Oracle!!
I was just wondering how the band felt playing here in Bogota. Speaking for myself it was the best night ever, I had never felt such a rush and such excitement! Please answer me, I hope they felt as if they were at home.
Ps: Sorry for my english :)
Thank you!!


The Oracle replies:

The general opinion amongst the touring party is that the crowd in Bogota was the best yet with their manager even saying it was one of the best shows he has ever seen. The atmosphere was amazing with a deafening response to every song; it made the hairs on the back of my arm stand on end (which is a good thing to say by the way).
I can also share with you that a couple of people admitted to feeling very emotional with tears welling up because of the atmosphere you all created. Well done Bogota, you gave Rio a run for its money!


CONGRATS COLOMBIA PEOPLE :D

now only mexico can surpass you :D

Fingerprints needed

[Notepad-typed notes on the flight to Mexico City]

Two days since my last post from Brazil and we’ve already been to Colombia and gone. So here we are, on a plane to Mexico right now and Mexico City is in some way what everyone in the crew has been looking forward to: we’re half-way through the tour and also this is the only place where Coldplay will play twice in the same venue so it means a bit more time for everyone.

Last night show in Bogotà was in the huge (how many times will I use this word again? Place your bet) Simon Bolivar park from where you could see the green mountains surrounding the capital. We’ve also been blessed with sunshine all day long, except some drizzle just when Coldplay went on stage. As usual. It was the first time in Colombia for Coldplay. 32,000 people made it to the show despite a quite impressive public transport strike; they were all there, screaming their lungs out when Chris successfully attempted some local slang in Spanish!

Maybe some of them are still wearing one of the three wristbands that Oxfam volunteers have been giving out yesterday. Three wristbands - three messages, because Oxfam Colombia is full of energy and wants to involve as much young people as possible with initiatives that they can feel close to:

DIGNA: a collective movement for recovering dignity in the Colombian society affected by years of conflict. Leave your fingerprint here: www.vozdigna.org (English and Spanish version)

Violence against women: Colombian women have suffered and still suffer sexual abuse and violence in the conflict.

Mercados Campesinos (farmers’ markets): a great community project that helps small farmers to connect directly with Bogotà’s consumers. I’ve never been good with numbers, but apparently only by cutting the chain of intermediaries, local farmers can get up to 65% more profit and consumers get a price that is 30% cheaper than standard (thanks Paul for explaining!). It’s a win-win: less poverty in farmers communities and more food security for consumers.

Thanks Damaris and thanks to all of you lovely Colombian volunteers, you’ve been working so hard: I was panting most of the time since Bogotà is quite high-up. I had such a good time!

Besides my Oxfam-duty, I’ve also been upgraded to advanced confetti-shooter: I now sit all on my own below one of the delay towers and even have to use a radio. Amazing progress eh? Who knows what I could be doing next.
