Brutally hot in DC today. We scoped out the venue this morning and there is an entrance from the Gallery Center which is inside and cool with several places to eat/drink. Guard said the entrance will be open for the show. We are going to go to Bar Louis in the Gallery around 4 pm for a bite and glass of wine if anyone wants to join us in the A/C. So excited!

Does anyone know what time the show is likely to start? I know that the tickets say 7:00 on them, but I don't think Coldplay will be coming on that early.

 

Wolf Gang 7 PM

Robyn 7.45 PM

Coldplay 9 PM

 

Oh, and in case anyone was interested, I found this page with what might be tonight's setlist:

http://www.setlist.fm/setlist/coldplay/2012/verizon-center-washington-dc-23df4c47.html

 

Everyone can make or change a setlist on that website but it's probably the correct setlist (except for Trouble if they fixed Will's drum machine) : )

Welcome!

 

Welcome, Coldplayers, to our fair city! Sorry for the endless heat wave! (I worried about that when they announced the shows so long ago.) Anyway, it's so exciting, the big days are here at last. I hope everyone has a wonderful time. I've been reading this site for years, just never got around to posting. Allow some extra time on the Metro and watch out for a thunderstorm. I have a feeling the show is going to be epic tonight!

I am ready for tonight. Showered, dressed, ready to leave toward the Verizon Center!!! I hope this storm does not cause too much trouble.

I know a lot of people have been hating on her, but I am excited to see Robyn. I think her music is great and she does have unique performance.

 

I will tweet some pictures, though I am sitting high up.

 

Ahhhhh. We'll be glowing in the daaaaaaaaaaaaaark! Tonight!!!!!!! :)

Thanks for the times! And yes, I know that anyone can edit that website, but I find that it's usually more or less correct.
