Just got out of the taping. Thanks again Halup! Everglow was gorgeous . AHFOD I loved as well.

 

Amazing Day sounded much better here.

 

Viva la Vida was hilarious. Chris was at the piano and didn't leave. Will was singing and kept looking over. It took a while before he figured it out. I was cracking up.

 

There were no phones allowed so no videos.

looks like no phones were allowed, although there are quite a few pics out there already.

 

Have you ever watched a show where the entire band was genuinely STOKED to be there????

huge grins on their faces and everything.... like dancing crazy and just looking so fucking happy??

There's honestly nothing like it.

I just watched Coldplay perform and it reminded me exactly why I do what I do & love what I do.

Can you post any reviews of the songs? How many new ones were played?

New songs:

Title track is uptempo with a big chorus. I preferred Adventure of a Lifetime, but then again I LOVE AOAL.

 

Everglow was a piano ballad with an r&b beat. I really dug it.

 

Amazing Day was inspired by Back to the Future and this time I could really hear the 50s influence in the beat. My least favorite of the night.

 

For me so far, I like what I hear more than MX, which was my least favorite album.

 

Older songs including Sky Full of Stars which I continue to love live. VLV, and Yellow.

 

VLV Chris was at the piano for the intro. He was supposed only play a short intro, but he stayed.

Oh my good lord. I had been trying for days and days to win these tickets. Today, at 3:15, I was in line at the bank, and checked Instagram, saw KIIS FM post with a picture of the band and a note saying to check their Facebook page, that there were last minute tickets. Clicked to fb, and they just wanted a comment. I was shameless, but professed my love for Coldplay. Within minutes, I had a dm from them saying to send my name, age and phone number, and I had to reply before 3:40. I immediately did, but they weren't accepting my message! I posted again on my comment, and they pm'd again, saying to email an Iheart radio rep. I did immediately, told my daughter to get in the car, we had to leave NOW. It was 3:40 - I had no other details, nothing, but I also live 65 miles away from Burbank and knew we needed to get on the road that minute. LA traffic is the WORST. An iHeart representative called at 4:20 with the details - thank god we were on the road. It took us 2 hours 45 minutes, following google maps crazy but "fastest possible route" to get there. I had no idea where I was driving, just trusted google maps. We arrived at the studio/theater, and I was shaking. I hadn't even had time to process, and I was so stressed out because I thought we'd be late! But we made it. Got checked in, got my bar wristband, which I didn't even redeem for my free drinks! We were in the 4th standing row right in front of Jonny. I started talking with the people around us, and they were ALL industry, worked for iHeart, or knew someone. They thought it was cool that I'd won.

 

Elvis Duran spent a few minutes interviewing the boys - they are so cute and happy, and look to be in a really good place. And damn, they all look so dang handsome. Elvis spoke with all of them, and made a point not to let Chris dominate. haha.

 

They played AHFOD which I like even better, this was the 3rd time I've heard it - having heard them play it twice at James Corden. Will bangs the crap out of the drums, Jonny is totally rocking on it. Love it. ASFOS - awesome. Then Everglow. OMG. I'm in love. I absolutely loved it - it's a ballad, Chris plays piano the whole time. Beautiful. Then Viva, and as Trojanchick says, it was hilarious, that Chris just kept sitting at the piano playing away, Will kept looking at Guy and talking to him, and looking over at Chris, but they kept playing. They finally got his attention, and he was all Oops, I fucked up, don't air that one, and with all these bigwigs in the room. They played it again, and it was so good to hear again and see Will banging away. Then AOAL - such a fun song. Elvis had asked them if they were going to play Amazing Day and Chris was all um, no. We hadn't planned it, but I guess we could after the taping is over. So after the 5 songs, the taping stopped and they played Yellow and Amazing Day, and we held onto our loved ones and swayed along. It was awesome and I still can't believe I got to go. It was all over in an hour, but I'm so glad we were able to be there and get there in time! So far, I love the album, and the boys do too, and it shows.

 

They said no phones, but the iHeart people I was standing near had theirs.

 

And I get to see them yet again on Saturday! Woo hoo... 4 times in 9 days... Can't get enough :)

btw, did the flubbed viva performance get as far as singing? i wanna see this :)

 

I soo wanna see this, all the way through to them restarting it! It's great seeing them ad-libbing and continuing on, and watching that chemistry between them work when Chris f-up (why is it they only ever stop and restart when Chris messes up?), and seeing how their musicianship can now allow them to do that - they literally sound good all the time, even when it's a slip-up :heart:

Well damn, I wanna hear more details about the new songs played! And why do we think they'd play more new songs for the Tidal concert than they did for the "official" release party?

 

The Album Release party was taped to be a 30 minute show, with an interview and a few songs. The Belasco/Tidal concert is more of a "real" show. Chris said during the radio interviews he did last week that they'd perform 4 new songs and 8 old songs for the Tidal livestream.
