HOLY NAPPIES!!!! YOU GUYS!!! I just went down to the United Center (early, because I'm a creep). I was the ONLY fan there, and when I arrived, I saw all of the tour buses and black SUV's and stuff, so I hung out around Gate 1, not wanting to get too close, and Chris Martin literally RAN PAST ME! I guess he was jogging maybe? I dunno. But, anyway, when he came back around, I waved at him, and he came up, said hi, and HUGGED ME mid run! Then he ran back off to wherever he was going, haha. I left and went back to my hotel after that, but I'm sure the whole band is still there sound checking! Do you guys want to come up later, maybe around 4 and viva chant to see if they'll all come out and say hi to us? :D
Good for you!:)

That is just downright awful... karma will hopefully bite the scammer back

Does anyone know what time they are going to go on tonight? I know the show starts at 7, but what time Coldplay actually hits the stage? Like maybe based on past shows or other experiences at the UC?

My GF has to work so we want to time it so we get there just in time for them to start. Aka try to make the amount of work and Coldplay missed the smallest!!! Thank you :)

YES WE SHOULD!!! Is there a spot inside of the venue where we could all gather? Or maybe even after the show we could try and get autographs or something. I'd just love to meet you guys! :D

Oh and I was near Gate 1 I think when it happened! :)

Something completely unrelated to tonight's gig but you are best placed to answer. Does the forum actually work well on a mobile phone?

Kind of. I've got an iPhone, and it can be kind of slow, and hard to hit buttons sometimes. But other than that, it works!

It would be awesome to have some sort of mobile site or mobile app or something, though. :D

EDIT: Even though that's probably not possible at the moment, especially with the recent attempt to overhaul the main site and wikicoldplay...

BUT I've heard that some people access it through something called tapatalk, and apparently that works really well.

In preparation for coldplay, I'm looking up the lyrics to their songs to make sure I sing the right ones and not the ones I've made up.
