skeptik Posted July 11, 2005 Share Posted July 11, 2005 Ok, as it seems no one is posting a review here, i will do it. The show took place on a mud filled terrain. Richard Aschroft started the show, and boy, can this boy sing it. Altough i don't know if he always gives the impression of a drugged out junkie as this was my first time seeing him, but nontheless, he was great. Played for an hour, with all his (and the Verves) greatest songs, closing it out with bittersweet symphony. He was really into it by the last song, you could just feel the emotions he puts into his performance. He was acompanied by a guy on piano (Richard played acoustic guitar). Bittersweet symphony and the DJ Shadow bit were done on pre-recorded music, but in the end it's his great voice that really puts the song into your heart. Richard promised that Coldplay are going to deliver the greatest show on the planet, and they didn't dissapoint. All the standard songs from this tour. I don't quite remember the setlist, but it was pretty close to other shows being played. Clocks was awesome, Chris and the band were playing faster and faster at the end to an unbelievable crescendo... fucking great. One song I will never forget for the rest of my life is Fix You. This is THE greatest song to be played live EVER. With Chris swinging that lamp hanging from the ceiling and triggering the fireworks. I am lost for words for this performance. Tears were running down my face when Chris said his last Danke. This is one show I will never forget. Thank you COLDPLAY for making my life a little brighter.
