I'll try and upload it to, I probably can pretty soon after the shows finished. It's pretty easy for me to rip things to my computer with the set up I have.

I forgot some people wouldn't be able to see it
I love you! :lol:

Yeah the set looks pretty sick, their new military style is really cool I think too. Jonny's guitar looks awesome too, it looks kind of like the way I painted mine a while ago

Don't worry, I'll be recording. It might take a while to upload, but who knows?

I finally watched this on mtv.com, since I don't have cable. I must say I wasn't sure how the performance would be or if I would like their new song since I haven't heard it in its entirety yet. But, I must say after watching their performance over more than once, I am digging the Viva La Vida song.

I must say I love the strings (orchestral instruments) on this song. I think it makes the song. I love that its more upbeat as well.

Chris' peformance was good, but probably because it is his first time performing in such a long time, his vocals seemed strained in parts. I felt like he had a little bit of a hard time in parts to get some of the notes. I've never heard him have to try and get notes before. But, I loved the music overall and what they did with the song.

My sis says that maybe it is because the words are so much faster in this song...maybe it was a change for his voice.

Nice pics btw!!!

all i have to say is that Coldplay is no longer alternative. i would now classify them as pop.

I think they first hit pop during x&y, but that's not to say that there values have changed. They're just into doing different things. Viva la vida is very pop, but then again, violet hill is the heaviest thing they've done in a while.

like "Fix You"....yeah they went completely mainstream there, but not really "pop."

also, some of the other songs we've heard are more subdued than the regular "pop" materials in that genre. not to mention they still deviate from the rather-simplistic music composition within "pop."

but yeah with exception of "Viva la Vida," Coldplay's works still land them under the "alternative" label.



(and on a personal note, the day Coldplay becomes "pop" is when my Jessica Simpson/Britney Spears/Mariah Carey-lovin' cousins finally decide that Coldplay is HAPPY-HAPPY MUSIC, easy to understand, and that they can do better covers).

I wouldn't by any stretch of the imagination call Viva La Vida "pop."

Anyway... I thought the performance was almost cd-quality awesome.

It's amazing what we call 'alternative' now. This really deserves its own thread. I don't know what to call them, but they're pretty damn mainstream for 'alternative',lol.
