[9-Sep-2012] Coldplay @ Paralympics Closing Ceremony, London, UK (please post your reviews for Wiki,


Recommended Posts

^Have you guys not read the NME article(s) then... Because y'know, they range from 'meh' to scathing.

 

Even I wasn't overly impressed last night. I loved hearing some older tracks, but Chris needs to rest... His vocals are pitchy (could be nerves coming through too)

 

Nat, he was very nervous at the start and it affected UATW noticably. However, he setttled down thereafter I thought.

 

I thought the sound mix was terrible also for UATW and I barely heard Will; whilst the guitar drowned out Chris' voice at times.

I just don't get these people commenting on articles like this:http://www.guardian.co.uk/music/musicblog/poll/2012/sep/10/coldplay-paralympics-poll

 

How can people honestly listen to GPASUYF, Strawberry Swing, 42, etc. and honestly think "psh, same old Coldplay I already know I hate."

 

Miserable people simply projecting. Even if it's not one's cup of tea, how about the occasion? The choreography wasn't bad at all. Many of those performers doing amazing things last night were disabled. You don't have to like Coldplay, but you can at least respect the occasion.

Sorry! Wrong thread! I'm very nervous watching Andy Murray on the brink of winning his 1st ever Grand Slam.

 

Haha, I know the feeling. Not a big Tennis fan, but a lot of my Brit friends are on the edge of their seats right now and I'm picking up their excitement!:D

 

EDIT: Woo Hoo! Way to do it, Andy!:D

It actually annoys me that most people are just saying how much they disliked Coldplay but they don't even mention the athletes or the para orchestra or the dancers with disabilities. The people could at least acknowledge the others involved in the Paralympic ceremony!

It's called Truck Invasion and here's my unprofessional MP3 version. I hope it gets released without the commentators voices all over it.

It seems unlikely to me that that will happen, since it was co-composed specifically for the ceremonies. But I'd love to be wrong about that. Just think of the money releasing it could raise for the various charities supported by the Paralympics and many of the athletes. *daydreams*:D

 

I would LOVE to hear a proper sudio versionn made.:)

I think it was nerves at the start, then he seemed to be fine til near the end. To me, he still sounded good, but he was definitely losing his voice by the end. I was still blown away, but I agree his voice needs a break.

 

I did enjoy it. But at the same time I wouldn't say it is the best performance I've seen. I just think at this point, as much as I'd love to see them again, I just want them to take a break...

 

Some of the higher notes pretty much were non-existent.

 

Nat, he was very nervous at the start and it affected UATW noticably. However, he setttled down thereafter I thought.

Hey Phil. Long time no see :nice: UATW made me cringe straight the way through. He did settle down, but he still wasn't at his best. Even my Mum said she was disappointed-- saying he sounded ill in comparison to June.

Yes, the potential for raising money for charity is enormous. Let's hope they do.

I agree. Even with the breaks this time around, touring is grueling and they need and deserve a break. Their Christmas break is coming up in a couple of months, and their South American dates don't seem to be confirmed yet. Even if they are, some time off is coming soon and they need it. They do sound amazing overall though.:)
