Just got home. Setlist:

 

Charlie Brown

Paradise

Mylo Xyloto

Hurts Like Heaven

Viva la Vida

The Scientist

Every Teardrop is a Waterfall

 

Notable moments:

- Show began with the band soundchecking the first minute of Charlie Brown briefly in front of the audience before kicking into the actual show

 

- CB and Paradise were filmed for broadcast in a few weeks. Other songs were audience-only.

 

- Chris screwed up halfway through Paradise and was forced to restart the whole song since it was being filmed for broadcast. Dropped at least 5 f-bombs in the process.

 

- Chris's scaffolding climb during the end of ETIAW was something I hadn't seen before.

Wow. What a night! :lol: :awesome: :awesome: I found a ticket about 4:00 or so. After I signed on to iota and ask for a ticket it said "available" and to confirm or reserve your ticket but I couldn't see anything about that. I left and got myself over to Hollywood thinking everything will be fine. :lol: When I got there eveyone had wristbands and ticket papers in their hands. I didn't have any ticket papers or confirmation printout. As I went to ask the scanner guy. These two girls. Sandra and Monica told me I needed that printout. I told them it never took me to a printout page. Well, they said to me. Aww don't worry, we have an extra ticket and will give it to you. Because Sandra won tickets on the Radio and Monica reserved for the both of them. I was so happy! :happy: Was about to ball my eyes out. :cry: :wacky:

 

As I was walking up to the line before all that. Coldplay was sounchecking Paradise. Was it my imagination or did I hear them souncheck Strawberry Swing and Death and All Of His Friends.

 

They let us in a little at a time. Had to wait a little bit. We watched the taping of JK, heard a playilist of songs. Some Stones, INXS, U2.It got everybody pumped. :D A riot almost occured when some chic decided to block our views and piggy or shoulder back on her man. They were all yelling. "Get her off!!: :lol: she finally did. Coldplay soundchecked Charlie Brown before the taping to make us and them comfortable, Chris said. They performed Paradise, then Chris fucked up and they had to do it again.:laugh2: The crowd was cheering about it though. They played MX/Hurts Like Heaven, Viva :dazzled: The Scientist. : ) and Every Teardrop Is A Waterfall and during "you can hurt, hurt me bad but I raise the flag. Chris climped the scaffling, or what I call the flagpole and raised himself on it. :awesome: Awesome Coldplay. The guys were great. All of them. Fantastic. After it was over some kept cheering and clapping, but realised they sang us songs. We thought to hear only the 2. Everyone walked away happy. I could hear a couple girls singing...para para paradise down Hollywood Blvd. Nice show, glad the two cool chics from Pomona gave me a ticket. :) File that under, another Coldplay miracle. :wacky: :nice: :awesome:

 

There's my review, that was for Row and the Gorgeous Chrissy thread girls. :wacky:

Finally back home after a wonderful time at dinner after JK with some really cool coldplayers. :) It was great to see the boys for the 2nd night in a row, and they were awesome as always, even with Chris's fuck-up, and having to restart...but we are used to that. I don't know, but I am feeling just meh about it. It was probably the crowd - very pushy and rude, at least those around us, which kind of put a bit of a damper on it, imo. We had KROQ priority tickets, love KROQ's staff, spoke with one guy for a bit who was at the Breakfast and another show I'd been to. Lining up was fine, we arrived about 2:30, met up with some friends, and we were maybe 7th in line. There were 2 priority lines, we were in the much smaller "friends and family" line (even though it was almost all KROQ winners) and the regular priority line was much much longer and across the street. The General ticket holders were on the other block on the other side of the building. The stage was set up in the back parking lot. So after waiting a few hours, we get the full wand and pat-down for security. NO cameras except phones, no purses, pretty much nothing but your keys, id and phones. The we were walked down the street behind a barricade and waited for a bit. Heard soundcheck, CB and DAAHF! The rather militaristic security dude kept us in line saying we had to follow his every direction or we would be sent home. He thought he could control the crowd surge, and we did get inside, finally, rather orderly, but then we were out of our line-up order which was bs, and people were pushing like you wouldn't believe. I hadn't experienced that before with CP, ever. Pushy people and rude people all around. And more phones held up - heard that people in the back were watching the show through other's phone cameras because they couldn't see the stage. We ended up in the 2nd row, which is ok, but when there is super-annoying cell phone woman videoing the whole thing with her phone in my face, well, then I get pissed. I'm tall, and had two much shorter girls behind me constantly elbowing me and bitching that they couldn't see behind all the tall people, very annoying. And the woman in front of me won the prize for super annoying, after pushing her way in because she was a VIP. She was a different ViP and and knew it...gah. Anyway, you've seen the setlist, and I"m glad they played 6 songs, but the whole experience was like I said, just ok. Last night was the best night ever, so I knew that tonight wouldn't compare and it didn't, but I still got to see those boys, and of course, that is worth it. It's late and I'm going to bed. My photos are taking forever to upload, so I'll put up a few of my iPhone pics tomorrow.

Nice review Dianne. Had a great time despite the constant pushing and blocking by a lot of people.

 

Here's a video of Chris climbing the scaffolding.

I was watching my videos I shot (trying to upload at least one tonight - hotel wi-fi not being cooperative) and some of the screams in the audience are more like "there's an axe murder in the audience!" rather than "I love Coldplay!"... :lol:

 

Blood curdling screams + concert is a weird combination. But weird kind of describes the night overall. :lol: I was standing next to Dianne, and concur with her review.

 

And... hi Jimmy! :P

Okay, waaaay tired (5 am now)... here is my follow-up article to last night's on the Club Nokia gig:

 

Jimmy Kimmel Live! Concert Photojournal: Review of Coldplay Outdoor-Mini Concert Block Party in Hollywood on 2/9/2012

 

I am still uploading the second of the two full videos I shot (the other being Viva la Vida)...

 

Pics for this show don't compare to my other one, as I was limited to my iPhone, which is a terrible camera for concerts.

 

Coldplay brought it, as they always do, but Chris seemed a bit more under the weather tonight than at Club Nokia - hope he takes care of himself! I think his inner Tarzan came out to try to compensate (full video below)...

 

[ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yp5Pz1koRK8]Coldplay's 'Every Teardrop is a Waterfall' at Jimmy Kimmel Live 02/09/12 - YouTube[/ame]

 

Cue blood curdling screams beginning at 0:48... seriously, what the hell? What a strange, strange crowd...

 

Sorry, I haven't slept for three days... :lol: That's all I've got now. It was like a Coldplay convention in Los Angeles all week! :elephant:

^Thank you so much for this video, and the pics :wacky:

 

The "aaaaaa aaaaaaaa aaaaaaaa aaaaaaaaa" scream made me laugh so hard :lol::lol:

 

And Chris looks like a kid on a playground :lol:

To me, his Tarzan moment has one explanation: MEDS!:rolleyes4::lol:

I hope he gets better soon, and I'm really looking forward to watching the Grammys!
