🪐 MY UNIVERSE | COLDPLAY X BTS | OUT SEPTEMBER 14TH 🛰

[8-Feb-2012] Coldplay @ Club Nokia, Los Angeles, CA, USA


Recommended Posts

What song were they playing here? :wacko:

 

Thanks so much for the pics! :D

 

After the broadcasted part, ending with ETIAW, they came back and did Us Against the World and Everything's Not Lost. Chris is sitting on the edge of the stage for UATW. He just came over, sat down, and apologized for the sound - don't know why, it was amazing. Best show ever...Wow, I still can' t quite get my head around how incredible it was.

 

And apparently, the cameraman was in my face more than I thought. :\:laugh3:

Great pics Jason, looks like you had an awesome night (of course you did!).

 

And they rehearsed Get Back? That's in my top 5 fav Beatles songs. Man, can't wait to hear that one someday!

Yeah, okay, it is 4 am and I've been writing an article about this concert, after showing up at the venue at 8 am (now yesterday) and standing around for 13 hours... it was that freaking good! I really can't express - it was just an amazing concert.

 

The venue - incredible. The band - seriously at their most jubilant - they just exuded joy with every bit and nuance of their performance. It was just stunning.

 

Since I've been going to so many concerts lately, I've been putting up articles about them on my website, along with photos and videos (though I only shot one video here, since it was being professionally filmed, which I hope will be available at some point so I can watch it and relive it!).

 

Published a ton of pics - nearly 200 - all from front row center.

 

Seriously, if you ever have an opportunity to get right to the front at a venue like this, the horrific prospect of standing in line all day staring you in the face... totally worth it. People like to throw around the word Epic a lot. This show was freaking Epic. Incredible.

 

I do try to take nice pics at concerts, but some of these are really some of the best I've done of Coldplay (because I was so freaking close - not a result of any special skill on my part).

 

Will throw up a few samples here, but too tired to recode all 200ish of them into the different format this board uses... :LOL:

They skipped LOST! & Politik.

 

Anyway, I need some sleep. Totally awesome. And met up with soooo many awesome members of Coldplaying. They (you) were everywhere!

Thanks a lot for the review and the pics Jason! :nice:

 

 

Iheart radio was done before the 2nd encore. Chris told the audience beforehand. So when he came out after the radio was done he said he could now say things like F**K and S**T

 

:laugh3: that's Chris :lol:

(but i'll give you all the credit) so glad i met you and dianne! you guys are officially my new "freaky coldplay friends"! wish they had done lost! and politik, but hey I CAN'T COMPLAIN.

 

i must say, i've been to many shows in my time, both in arenas and intimate settings, festivals, indoors and outdoors -- many were out the this world; many have been all of fun and unforgettable, BUT I CAN HONESTLY SAY LAST NIGHT WAS LIFE-ALTERING. AND NOTHING WILL EVER BE ABLE TO TOUCH IT.

if anyone wants, i'll upload us against the world and everything's not lost -- i've got those in it's entirety!

 

DOES ANYONE KNOW IF THE STREAMING LAST NIGHT HAS BEEN RIPPED AND READY FOR DOWNLOAD???

 

tuesday night i couldn't sleep 'cause i was having nightmares that i was gonna be the 100th person in line at 7am... but LAST night, i couldn't sleep because i'm on too much of high!

 

sigh.

Jason, I was in giggles from seeing you & Dianne nonstop on my computer last night. The camera man loved y'all! Is this your number 1 then over Newcastle & Madrid?

 

Um, yeah, so I heard. LOL Seriously, it was the best concert I've been to. Don't know if it was the delirium from waiting all day - I got there at 10:30 and met up with Jason, Mike, Angie and a few others - or just the sheer awesomeness of being *RIGHT THERE*. The boys seemed to be in an exceedingly good mood - lots of smiles and the "looks" we all know. I'm going through my pics now, some are pretty darn good. And I hope I didn't embarrass myself too bad on camera and god forbid, they better not have caught any of my singing.

 

I will leave you with this picture, though :)

Ok, and this one...

Well, and one more...

The band soundchecked The Beatles 'Get Back'. I assume that is what they will play at the Paul McCartney tribute concert. It sounded good.

 

I'm at the airport waiting to fly home. Still haven't been to sleep. Hope I can nap on the plane.

 

Full review coming later.

 

We also swear we heard "Eye of the Tiger" during soundcheck. Hahaha.

 

Hope you got to nap some Angie.

Amazing show. My only disappointment is I didn't have my camera. I love the new songs live, most especially Charlie Brown (which was already my favorite). The crowd around me was very LA in a bad way, however it was great to hear the singing during the intro to Viva la Vida.

I saw you guys Dianne, Jason, and Angie a few times. They even showed you Dianne in the big screen behind Coldplay. :)

 

Jason, were you the lucky person who purchased the Coldplay puppets that the oracle mentioned were sold off for a charity? :)

Thanks Dianne for once again bringing up "Eye of the Tiger" -- I JUST got it out of my head not three-four hours ago!

 

I have such a love/hate thing with EOTT song too, so I need something else to invade my brain ASAP!
