Ears were buzzing, adrenaline was pumping and vocal cords were strained at Tuesday's amazing Coldplay concert, report buchtelite.com.
The concert was at the Q arena in Cleveland, which was the perfect venue for the concert. First arriving at the Q, there appeared to be many empty seats.Shortly after Duffy finished, the audience trickled in.
Then, at roughly 9 p.m., "Life in Technicolor" started, and so did the Coldplay concert. The stage was set with lots of lighting, a huge backdrop of their album cover, glowing balls hanging from the ceiling and a few hanging screens.
The backdrop changed with every song they played. Sometimes it had pictures playing, almost like a music video, other times there was just a logo. The hanging glowing balls changed colors to match the songs, and also showed images of the band. The concert felt like a music video.
The video screens they had showed the band, but in a way that made it not seem like you were looking at a video screen. The entire atmosphere made you feel like you were right there with the band, even if you were not. Coldplay met and exceeded my expectations.
They opened with Life in Technicolor and then went to some of their older music off of A Rush of Blood to the Head, and also played some from X&Y. To end the show they played Death and All His Friends, and for an encore, Yellow. It was perfect, and the crowd went nuts.
Chris Martin is an absolutely amazing performer. He has an insane amount of energy and ran around the stage the entire show. I've never seen anyone perform the way he did. He was jumping around, running around, playing guitar and never missing a note. At one point in the concert, the band even ran into the top section and played an acoustic version of The Scientist.
There is not one thing to change about this Coldplay performance. Their concert was amazing, and it will be in my top 10 for a long time.
