If someone does have a good recording it will appear in the multimedia section, so keep an eye out on there. :)

I am sorry but this is late, I have been ill since, well I have been ill for a while but gotten worse since the Coldplay gig at the Etihad on the 9th! I shouldn't have gone really, I was freezing my ar*e off queueing up outside for hours, I've had a bad chest for some time. But this was a Coldplay gig, how could I miss it!!!??? So now I am having to pay the price of one of the best nights of my life.

I was quite close to the stage, close enough to see their faces for once! I find it very nerve racking going to concerts as I go alone, but if I didn't go alone I wouldn't be going at all, no body in my life has any taste. So being in this stadium on my tod, sqeaky bum time! Doesn't help when people stare at you because you are on your own. Why don't you just smile and get on with what your doing and leave me alone?

Concert was amazing from the second they walked out on stage till the second they disappeared at the end, I had the most amazing night, after the shittiest 18 months I have had, I took that as my reward!

The fireworks, confetti, big balloons and wristbands were fantastic. I got lost in the music and the guys performance, I forgot myself and my troubles, I sang my heart out.

Highlights of the night, 'major minus', 'charlie brown' and finally hearing 'warning sign' sung live! I nearly cryed.

This was my 4th time seeing the lads, and each time they just get better and better. If money were no object I would go to see them more, unfortunatly I have only a part time job, so I already spend too much on the lads for my budget. But for the joy they bring into my life, they are worth every penny.

(when I put my jacket on the next day, 4 heart shaped pieces of confetti fell out from my hood, I couldn't help but smile!)

Coldplay - Manchester Etihad Stadium, 09/06



Standing in my poncho after waiting hours in the rain and questioning whether Robyn was really the right warm up act before Coldplay, everything was worthwhile as Chris Martin and his group took to the stage. Coldplay are known for being one of the best bands to see live and they certainly didn’t disappoint when they performed at the Manchester Etihad Stadium to a packed arena.

The gig showed the band perform for an impressive two hours, playing most of the songs from their new album, Mylo Xyloto. Opener 'Hurts Like Heaven' was certainly a crowd pleaser alongside other songs, including the hit track 'Paradise' as and the closing number 'Every Teardrop is a Waterfall'. Mylo Xyloto is a bit of a change from Coldplay’s usual music, adding a bit more of a psychedelic feel, which fits in with the band’s theme for the tour of neon graffiti and glowing wristbands. Whilst not their best album, it's still a relatable and interesting LP and a great testament to the growth and strength of the band with their fifth album.

The group also showcased their back catalogue, playing their old favourites such as 'Fix You' and 'Yellow', which went down a storm with the 50,000 strong crowd. I thought 'Warning Sign' was particularly touching as it was played with no effects, just Chris Martin, his piano and a spotlight. It really higlighted the strength of Coldplay's lyrics and how their music really makes an impact on their fans.

Apart from the music, the premise and set-up of the show was spectacular in itself. The light up wristbands were a great touch, giving the gig real atmosphere. The only disappointing thing was many of the wrist bands were not working, such as my own! The show was so breath-taking though that it didn’t particularly matter and to be honest seeing the different coloured lights flashing to the time of the music around you was pretty amazing by itself. The firework display at the beginning and end of the gig were fantastic, in addition to the release of paper butterflies across the stadium during several songs, one being 'Lovers in Japan' which left the fans awestruck. The atmosphere of the crowd was amazing and it definitely wasn’t just your standard gig.

As always, Coldplay outdid themselves with an amazing performance and an amazing tour that has left this avid fan wondering how on earth they will manage to top the ingenuity and uniqueness of this set in the future.

Was a brilliant gig, Probably the best Coldplay gig I've been to, and this is my 7th one. That said, the support acts were woeful. Don't get me wrong I know that music is subjective and I'm sure Charlie XCX and Robyn have their fair amount of followers, but to be supporting a Rock group? really?

I also don't think it helps the support artists playing to a crowd who generally don't appreciate their music. I remember seeing Coldplay at Bolton supported by Elbow and Morning Runner. Absolutely fantastic.

it's a side view. no-one behind it.

although there were large butterflies at the back of the crowd which I imagine must have blocked some people's view
