    Coldplay Live Review and Setlist - Clark County Amphitheatre, Portland, OR (10th July 2009)

    Coldplay's Viva La Vida tour continued again through North America last night as they played at the Clark County Amphitheatre, Portland, OR. The Coldplay-shaped puppets were out and about again in Portland - see those pictures after the jump. No changes to the normal arena setlist except that Billie Jean replaced I'm A Believer in the acoustic set.

    Parking and traffic was a cluster fuck, took me an hour to get out of the venue. That adorable dancing roadie is a gem, complete with Michael Jackson glovethat kid is gonna go places, i'm predicting. The show was amazing as usual, best one yet. They sounded absolutely unbelievable! Clocks and Glass of Water just stand out because they are so powerful and visually stimulating. The crowd was awesome, except during 42 when Chris wanted us to sing along to the ohhhhh ooooh's, they kind of choked and the Mexican wave fizzled, but other than that they came through I thought. Chris was in his usual playful mood, his vocals were stellar. During Clocks Jonny was rockin' his little heart out, i would have gotten it on video, but the king of all butt-faces(security) told me to stop filming and get back to my seat, prick OMG, and they ran past me AGAIN when they went to the back of the stage to play acoustic! This time I managed to grab all of them and not just Chris, I even grabbed Kelly!Please excuse my squeals of delight and ecstacy. [thanks clisaj]


    oh myyy. i dont really have enough time to write a review that is good and/or coherent.but the show was AMAZING. heres some quick thoughts: i got there super early and heard a bit of the soundcheck.. mostly violet hill and guy fooling around on bass. the second opening band was very very good. when they finally came on, it was so surreal! like, "AH IM ACTUALLY SEEING THEM HOW CAN THIS BE HAPPENING" type of thing. AMAZING SOUND. wow, wow wow. the platforms out into the audience were uber short): billie jean cover was quite good, esp. jonnys guitar. the guy next to me was dancing and singing the entire time. cool dude.

    when they walked up to the b stage, i was only 10 seats away. two very nice roadies gave me a pick and a setlist! [thanks bear]
