So, after watching a number of fan footage of the past concerts. I really have the feeling Chris is having voice issues. His performance of Army Of One really sounded terrible at some points and sometimes even out of tune... Songs he normally sings quite well he doesn't seem to be able to sing out in full anymore either (Politik, Up&Up, Fix You) Whereas the older songs like Shiver, and The Scientist do still sound good. Some songs lose their power because I feel Chris is holding (probably preserving) his voice (maybe also because of the tight tour schedule) . Some songs even sound a bit 'lazy' or uninspired. Anyone noticed this too? I find it very worrying. I hope it improves.

Yeah unfortunately I noticed this as well. It seems he's not running around and dancing as much, which is cool so he can focus on his vocal performance but that's not the case. He's running around less and is still having trouble with his singing. I'm thinking it's just wear and tear because he's been doing this for the past 15 years and also he's just getting older but we will see.

I'm not sure if this has been discussed already, but I am wondering if we know if the MX xylobands work for this tour?

Rumors are swirling about Coldplay in Manila
http://cnnphilippines.com/entertainment/2016/04/14/coldplay-manila-2016-concert.html
It's true, Coldplay is coming to Manila


Metro Manila (CNN Philippines) — Netizens made quite a stir on Twitter last night about rumors that British rock band Coldplay is visiting Manila this year.

The news was confirmed to CNN Philippines by a brand manager of a telecommunications company sponsoring the event.

The source requests anonymity as he is not authorized to speak on the matter.

There are no details yet as to when and where the Coldplay concert will be held, but the source assured "they are definitely coming to Manila at the latter part of the year."

Two other employees from the company, who requested anonymity, also confirmed the news.

The telecommunications company is expected to release an official announcement on the highly-anticipated concert in the coming days.

Coldplay has made seven studio albums, most recently A Head Full of Dreams which features the single "Adventure of a Lifetime."

The band is popular for other hits like "Yellow," "Viva La Vida," "Fix You," "Paradise," and "A Sky Full of Stars" to name a few.

They have won seven Grammy Awards from 31 nominations. They also won eight awards from the Brit Awards and five from the MTV Video Music Awards.

CNN Philippines has reached out to officials of the telecom company for more information and is awaiting reply.

Can anyone who has already bought comparable seats give me a ballpark price for tickets in the red sections like 124, 126, 128, 146, 148, and 102? Thanks!!
I paid $208 for a comparable section of your 146 but on the opposite side for New Jersey show

I doubt it because they won't be engineered to work with the remote control.

Coldplay coming to Manila still sounds like a rumor to me. However, I'm keeping myself to believe they are coming to Southeast Asia anytime soon

Haha, I suppose it depends on whether you're talking about the band as a whole or the members. The band is... Coldplay is... The members are... Coldplay are... Ha, works both ways :)

Why are they not playing ANY songs from VLV, apart from VLV of course. It baffles me...

so.... last day in Latin America, can we expect a VLV request song or they'll keep insisting on AROBTTH and X&Y?

If it isn't requested, I think Strawberry Swing will find its way in at some point.

I remember reading that there was some disappointment that they were just playing 22 songs or so during this tour. And I just wanted to say that before attending the show I thought the same, but now that've been lucky enough to experience it I can say that it feels right.
Of course once the show ends you want them to keep playing forever but you don't get the "ugh, they played so little!" feeling I've gotten at other shows.
And I also now understand the lack of encore, the show has such a nice pace that it just makes sense.
