Ninety-nine % of my videos are 100% Jonny. Check out the faces he makes during Politik. He was in an ~interesting~ mood for some reason.

And that Jonny smile right to you girls.....I swear yall had to melt it's just so sweet. I grinned from ear to ear myself when I saw it. I'm glad you and the Jonny-posse and all the CPers in FL had such a great time.

Compared to what I've seen from you guys, my pictures are quite simple, but I love these out of the bunch that I shot.

Matic and I are back from a quick jaunt down to Ft. Lauderdale to see Coldplay perform at the Bank Atlantic Center. There are really only two bands Matic and I will go out of our way to see and Coldplay is one of them. U2 is the other, but when U2 is on tour, Matic and I will typically chase them around the country seeing them multiple times in multiple places.

Coldplay is not quite at the U2 level and as such, we seek them in the closest possible venue. Sadly, they did not visit the Tampa area on this tour originally choosing Ft. Lauderdale as their sole stop in Florida. A show in Orlando was added later, but I had already bought tickets to Ft. Lauderdale, so the die was cast.

As for the show itself, the band certainly did not disappoint. This was our second time seeing Coldplay (once on their previous tour) and I was then as I am now struck by how strong a front-man Chris Martin is. He has an energy and enthusiasm that is only rivaled by Bono (in his younger years). As in the previous show, Chris was all over the stage working the crowd trying to interact with the entire audience, not just the front sections. His gyrations and flailing about can best be described as those of an out of control sock monkey.

About half way through the show, after finishing a song, all four members of the band jumped off the stage and ran towards the back of the arena eventually stopping at the top of the arena's lower bowl. They had a very small outcropping set up with four microphones and the band proceeded to play two songs from this perch "to give the people in the cheap seats a better view".

The three set show lasted just over 90 minutes and touched on most of the new album and all the hits off their previous albums. For fans this was a treat, for critics I am sure the band provided plenty of ammunition for their fodder.

Our drive from the Tampa area to Ft. Lauderdale took us down I-75 to Naples, then a quick turn to the East through Alligator Alley. Matic did not get what all the hub-bub was over the Alley, but a few minutes into the drive it all made sense. Laying along the waterway embankments that parallel Alligator Alley was a whole mess of Gators taking in the Florida sun.

What are all those tickets listed at the end of your post. Did you actually went to all those shows?
If you do, How do you get the tickets?
Take care.

Thanks :) You are right, it is kind of difficult to take pictures at a show like that. Flash does nothing, and without flash you have to be really close, or keep still (almost impossible). I originally meant to review the show for the newspaper where I work, but it was a pain in the ass to get credentials with the Amway Arena. They suck with contact information. Imagine if I would have been let into the photo pit, if even for just two songs? Needless to say, I didn't get into the photo pit, and didn't review the show...I was bummed at first, but I'm over it. I still got to go and had a blast both times.

I shot some video too, but I put it on YouTube and the quality of it just went to total crap once I uploaded it to there. Yours is rockin'...I think I even commented on your YouTube clip, lol.

Post-concert depression is starting to sink in. Told some people at work today that I went to both shows, and all they could say is "Were you drunk when you decided to do that?" Ha, if they only knew I was one of many...

We were actually able to spot randoms out at the Ft. Lauderdale show that we had recognized from being at the Orlando show! There were A LOT of people who made that drive to see both shows:D

So if anyone was curious as to what some of the crowd reaction was for "Viva La Vida," here you go:

I wasn't moving, by the way, but excuse the shaking. That shaking is the strength of the crowd just jumping. The floor was wooden or something where I was standing and the stomping was crazy.
