Tryptophan Posted September 26, 2011 Share Posted September 26, 2011 So, we know Coldplay's live sets have been pretty predictable since a few years. During a tour, they'd usually play the same setlist with a few changes and additions throughout the tour (see 2011 summer festival tour). This set comprises almost the entire new album (Viva La Vida in the previous case) with some greatest hits added to the whole. During the summer festival tour there was some space for more songs as MX was not entirely played, but there's a big chance that for the actual MX tour, starting in Europe this December, older songs like Shiver and Life Is For Living will have to be removed so more songs of the album can be added. This type of greatest hits setlist is good for regular fans who will see the band live once in their lifetime. But, I've seen many people on this forum who would like to see/hear a more adventurous setlist with more unfamiliar, obscure songs. Many other bands have a rotating core of obscure songs that are part of their regular setlists. So why won't Coldplay do this? They're playing a safe bet with all the hits in one setlist, plus the album they're promoting. Though many of us more knowledgeable fans are dying to hear songs like A Rush Of Blood To The Head, Spies or Amsterdam again. Plus, personally, I wouldn't really want to see the same show I attended at Werchter all over again in Antwerp. So this is some kind of dare towards Coldplay, a petition, or a challenge if you will. I know it's some kind of a joke and the band have more important things to think about than just the wishes of a few fans. But I'd like to hear your opinions. What do you think? I added a poll about which songs you'd like to see live again. I'm curious about that. You can select more than one, but please not all of them, try 3-4 at most. :) Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
