Good Points - Excellent Crowd. Wooooahs during viva, after viva, before the encore, leaving the gig. Was magical. The acoustic set in the crowd. The screens at the side were fucking fantasticly clear.
Bad Points - Chris didn't interact with the crowd as much as he could have. But this is only a very very minor point. [thanks Jizo]
I thought the crowd was a bit average tonight, crowd was better at Twisted Logic Tour. The crowd were getting into the singing, but werent dancing as much, apart from the guy next to me who was headbanging half the night like he was at Metallica! I also thought Twisted Logic show was alot slicker than tonight. Was still a great show though. Heaps more balloons during Yellow than before, always love that moment. [thanks Wally]
RootinBrand: Chris Martin - best front man I've seen in awhile! Coldplay were bleeding brilliant tonight.
sharkola: coldplay was amazing. SOB I WILL FIX YOU SOB.
