    Coldplay Live Review - Acer Arena, Sydney (second night - 12th March 2009)

    Coldplay played the second night of four Sydney concerts as they continue through their Australian Viva La Vida tour. One minor change to the setlist: Green Eyes was played instead of last night's Speed Of Sound in the acoustic set.

    went to coldplay just a few hours ago, was pretty good. i was seated a bit away but had a good view... (once again) taped the show (just audio). this time the quality is much nicer and clearer ill be splitting that and uploading it 2moro. judging by the lack of any checks for cameras etc hopefully a video of thw whole thing will surface, but my audio should do for now... [thanks monkeyman]


    Ugh, okay so I ended up lining up for about 2 and a half hours and then have to stand through the support acts only to be miserable because I was squished so bad, the girl in front kept putting her hair in my face, her bf felt it necessary to have his arm around her the whole time and completely get in my space and touch my boobs and tall guys (who should totally be banned from the front) were in my way and I couldn't see a thing. So, after the pleasure of them being directly to the right of me when they played the few songs on the runway, my friend and I slowly made our way through the sea of people (when they play the Viva La Vida remix and everyone lights up their phones in the dark) where there was SPACE to move and breath! Sooo much better. I was dancing and I could even see way better. Anyways, can't complain but I must admit, I didn't enjoy the show before I moved to the back which gives me that awful feeling of regret. As my friend said though, if I had been at the back the whole time, I would have been saying "I could have been up there so close to them", not knowing how awful it was. You live and learn. I forgot to mention, one girl fainted before the show even started. How bad would that suck!! I was on the verge on a panic attack, I must admit. I hate crowds and I think I have a mild case of claustrophobia. Oh, and I think the setlist was the same as last nights, except they played Green Eyes instead of Speed of Sound. Oh, and Chris' dad was on the other side of the runway to me in the front row of seats. He got up in Viva La Vida and Lost I think. I wonder what he thinks of the music. [thanks razors_girl23]
