    Coldplay Live Review - Acer Arena, Sydney (fourth night - 15th March 2009)

    Coldplay played the fourth and final Sydney concert as they continue through their Australian Viva La Vida tour. Setlist changes: Glass Of Water returned to the set, and Speed Of Sound was moved back to the acoustic set. 'The Wiggles song' was played near the end of the night and Death Will Never Conquer was once again skipped. Chris Martin played with a tape on his eyebrow, wonder if he got a gash while being mauled by the crowd in SCG yesterday?!

    first time poster, but just got back from the show. i went thurs night as well, and it was pretty much the same set. differences i noticed were they played "speed of sound" and "green eyes" during the acoustic set (then "i'm a believer" - "death will never conquer" got left off). apparently chris had promised will's brother he would let will sing a song, but will didn't seem to want to. and just after the scientist chris played a tribute to the wiggles (two of whom i'd seen walking to their seats at the start of the night) with a bit of "fruit salad, yummy yummy"! all in all a very similar show, but still fantastic. chris battled on despite having his eyebrow taped up - he must have got a nasty cut!

    I woke up @ 5.30am for 2 days straight to queue up for the gigs on the 14th and 15th Surviving on 2 hours' sleep today, I reached the place @ 7am, with 2 other people in front of me. Skip the 12 hours of waiting in queue... I managed to be front row centre This was probably the craziest, most energetic show I've gone to so far. Being the last show in Sydney and Australia, I would presume it would be so since it would be long time till Coldplay visit Down Under again. Personally it was a treat hearing BOTH Speed of Sound AND Green Eyes being played on the C-stage. So far it has been either/or at the gigs. Although for the 2nd night running, Will did not sing DWNC.
