The 100,000 strong arent all hardcore fans like us. Sure we know the lyrics to Hurts Like Heaven, Major Minus, Us Against the World and Charlie Brown. But they wanted sing a longs in there. I felt they killed the set a bit in the middle, Clocks should have been in there not the Encore.

 

Other than that, Im even more depressed I didnt get tickets, fly over and go!

So is Vh1 gonna edit out the part where Chris screws up in UATW or are they allowed to play it even though he curses?

Very, VERY great concert, I'm really proud to be a Coldplay fan :wacky: They did a wonderful job on the songs, the lights and overall stage effects, really impressive.

I could feel them being soo nervous. I think those "Glasto is so important" thing just put too much pressure on them. They were not at home on this stage and did not feel at all comfortable, trying to win the crowd over again and again. Those mistake during UATW proves that, I think. At Rock am Ring they enjoyed themselves and rocked the place, at Glasto they were kinda stiff. At least I felt that.

The show was great, nevertheless. I liked fireworks and lasers, and walking man learned a couple of new moves (or I just didn't notice them earlier?). Clocks, GPASUYF, Viva and Charlie Brown were awesome, loved the whole set.

My boys:P

Did you watch the actual stream? Did you see how into it the crowd was? U2 had the whole place in the palm of their hand. Personally, I thought it was brilliant. Edge's guitar sounded amazing, Bono's voice was great (haven't heard With Or Without You sung that well in quite awhile) and it was just an overall top-notch performance.

 

I watched it live in my front room via good old Aunty Beeb. I actually texted a few mates that were there as well to see if they thought the same, and they confirmed it. They (and others around them) were very let down by the performance. They thought Edge was excellent as usual, but Bono was just a bit of a tit.

 

But each to their own.

People need to realize that Coldplay aren't going to play stuff like Spies, Amsterdam, Square One, etc. anymore.

 

Why not?

 

Don't get me wrong, I am certainly not one of those fans who expects a "Greatest Hits" set, in fact I applaud bands who almost deliberately f*ck with their fans by playing b-sides, obscure tracks and omit the hits (which let's face it, only the casual fans are interested in).

 

But at a "proper" Coldplay show, I don't think it would do the set any harm to re-introduce tracks such as those described above.

 

Imagine if they added the likes of "High Speed" to the LP5 tour, that would be SICK!

So they played the same set. Perhaps they just want keep jokers in the pocket until proper album release? MTM suggest new album could be great.

So I TOTALLY screwed up, I just got on my computer at around 5:30 US time, and I read somewhere that the concert would be on at 9pm, so I kept on thinking that was my time. I log onto veetle and as soon as it gets started, the band is taking their bows and they walk of stage :( I feel like crying right now, does anyone know where I can find the whole concert recorded online right now, or if someone online is replaying it? I truly can't believe I missed out on this. Thanks.

 

Do you have VH1 or the Palladia channel? If so it is playing at 10pm on both channels. Your time is I think 2 Hours different than me, I am Eastern standard time in Florida

exactly what i felt! they were very very nervous...fix you and charly brown were the only sony without any mistakes. It was a good show. They are the best band and with fix you, charlie brown and some other songs they proved it...but they were not so confident like at rock am ring, germany...on every things not lost they could win the crowed in the end! but all in all it was fantastic...they always want to be perfect...this is very hard...they are still the best band in the world!

I read about technical problems, but find the setlist amazing.

 

I was watching TV for half of the show so I listened to the gig via BBC, Radio 2 - then watched via Justin, but after some minutes it was stuck ("to protect my computer" - I went out and then in several times - but I got tired of this and chose to be on here only).

 

Thanks akkku for posting a good link so that I could see the last part of the gig from the end of Clocks and until the end.

 

So now I look forward to the videos - and maybe a broadcast of the show tomorrow. I saw U2 from yesterday just before Coldplay came on.
