    I always see people post pictures of setlists they got at the gig... How do you get them? Do you ask personnel for them or...?

    I asked one of the security man.
    He had been standing in front of me all evening. Sometimes you are lucky.

    In Amsterdam I was holding a plastic bag to catch confetti and a roadie randomly threw his setlist into my bag. The best technique is probably asking a roadie though

    I've always been curious about plectrums? Are Coldplay the type to throw them into the audience? I've so far gotten one from Matt Bellamy and Alex Turner so this would round out my fave collection

    I saw your post in the other thread, you are very lucky! :)

    I tried in Stockholm last year from multiple security guys and roadies, nobody didn't want to give one o_O I'm going to try again this year at both shows in Sweden.

    You rip them from the hands of unsuspecting fangirls.

    No but seriously, it can be tough at a big show like this. You'll need some luck and often a friendly roadie or security person. Just ask them and remain polite. Obviously it helps to be front row, which is more challenging than ever with the early entry nonsense.

    I'm guessing Video Transmission or something along the lines for the request video to be played?

    I touched it three times but couldn't catch it at Stade De France on Saturday night! :joy:
    Does anyone knows what's the font used for the setlist so I can recreate one? Please!

    Amazingly I got a setlist from Cardiff and last night at Stade! I asked for the one in Cardiff and the security guard was amazing about it, he recognized me the night after too haha

    And at Stade I didn't even ask, crew just walked straight up and shoved it in my hand.

    I've always wondered this: who are the roadies and what do they do exactly? I'm so embarrassed for not knowing this... sorry guys :expressionless:

    Yeah I guess it could mean the Instagram request "video tape", seems to be fitting at least.

    I'm not 100% sure either :joy: but I guess that means the Coldplay's tour guys that are not these venue's security staff or such, so they tour always with the band. If someone is interested in getting a setlist, I really recommend asking other people than security staff (never worked for me), ie. sound engineers, cameramen, technicians etc. In Sweden, the Coldplay's roadies had black hoodies if I remember right

    I got my setlist from venue security in Cardiff. I wrote it in massive letters in the Snapchat app and just showed it to him since he couldn't hear me at all through the show. Gave it to me at the end when the lights went up.

    In Paris a Coldplay crew roadie literally slammed it into my hands when I didn't even ask. They wear black shirts or hoods with the Flower of Life on it.
