Hi peeps!

Well what a fantastic day! Great atmosphere, good, great and amazing music, fantastic weather, oh yeah and there were Coldplay :)

So for the set, well unknowing what was and what was not shown on TV, the highlights were most of the regular tour set:

The Scientist
Yellow
Everything's Not Lost
God Put A Smile
In My Place...
CLOCKS - very very well received and an amazing sight with their uber-green-laser streaming over the croud :D

The less known tracks included were (drum roll...)

Your World Turns Upside Down (an EXCELLENT performance - they really have this one nailed now and it's a great, great song - the only thing i'm not sure of is if i like the ending..)

Poor Me (again very well recevied - these new songs are really coming into their own now - but they played out the track with a full-band closing rather than the far more atmospheric chris piano close which is a shame in my opinion :embarrased: )

Chris was quite chatty and his usual over zealous self. Yet again it was the best gig of their lives - but hey I guess there were some people who hadn't already heard that three times this year :rolleyes:

They closed off the set with a shortened rendition of "it's a wonderful word" with the second verse as a thank you to the crowd...

My feelings after the set were that they are still on very top form but i felt that they want to move on a bit now - they are starting to move the set on a bit with new songs now a regular occurance and all it makes you think of TIME FOR A NEW ALBUM NOW LADS...

I hope they oblige :cool:

So all in all a great set and a great day!!!

roll on next year :cool:

i'll probably post my take on all this, though it will read similar to Si's...
some quick comments:

I loved YWTUD(is it your or my?... No Matter!) ...awesome! I hadn't heard it live till yesterday.

Personal Highlights: Chris goofing around throwing himself off the piano :D , Daylight- the first time i saw them, i wasnt really feeling this song but now YES!!!
other personal highlight- Shiver! woooo! BUT

i still have yet to hear Ladder to the Sun live :angry: :lol:

i think it was going to Lips Like Sugar but it turned out Echo & The Bunnymen performed it earlier on so maybe it was scrapped...

I can't believe my vibe of them seeming to be itching for a new album was so accurate :lol: :cool:

not sure about all of them, but I'm sure "The Scientist" is Chelmsford (I was there!!! :D ) and Chris had a bit of a "cough" in the middle of the second verse (bless 'im!) :)
