    A-fucking-mazing. They played Glasses Of Water and I almost had a heart attack. They played every single song I wanted them to. Now to do it all again tomorrow. Had to plan my attack for GA. I'm going to get there around 4:30 to line up and then if I can't get to the very front before other people when we're let in, I will head to the right of the stage where they play a few songs on the little runway type thing. My hope is many people won't have been tonight and won't realise to stand there. [thanks razors_girl23]


    Please forgive me again for my incohesiveness after a gig. I was sitting this time, on Jonny's side I was at the end of the ramp so I had a good view of him during IMP. He saw my banner again, and gave me a smile The concert was great, they played GOW and I'm a Believer, the energy was amazing!!! I got told off by the people behind to sit down because I got excited and started dancing I was kinda disappointed that I was probably the only person in my block singing GOW. And something else really FAIL. I was in the queue for the merch and there was this girl behind me who told her friend, 'I really like the blue butterfly tee, but butterflies have NOTHING to do with Coldplay!' And we met Will and Chris... We were waiting outside the loading bay trying our luck. Will came out in a van and was very patient and gracious He told us both Guy and Jonny had left before him, but Chris was still around. So we waited... and waited... Then this van with tinted windows came out. It didn't stop, although the person inside was waving at us. Some of us thought it was Chris, but the others weren't convinced, so we continued waiting until this nice security guard informed us that Chris was INDEED coming out, although we were to wait quietly and not mob his car. So we stood at a respectful distance before Kelly came out and opened the door for Chris. He signed everything we threw at him , and took a couple of pictures. [thanks but a dream]
