    Gates opened about 6.15pm. I wasn't the first one INTO the Dome, but somehow I managed to run/walk past everyone else in front of me to be the first at the barrier. So front row centre it was. Straight to Coldplay now, the boys started out with LiT, Violet Hill, Clocks and IMP, same as the previous concerts. Not much variation in the setlist. I'll get Chris to post the setlist, I left mine in my room hahaha. I was holding up a sign that said 'Jonny is my Guitar Hero' to the dismay of Chris beside me . The guy working the video camera told me to hold it up and he took a shot of it Chris saw it during the ending of Violet Hill and he winked at me and gestured to Jonny. I tried hard to get Jonny's attention, the people beside me helped as well, but it was only after DAAHF when they were leaving the stage before the encore that he say it. He smiled so sweetly at me. Of all the songs, LiJ was definitely my favourite live. I managed to stuff my bag full of butterflies at the end of the gig The Scientist too, and LiT II. At the end of the gig, we tried getting Hoppy's attention but he had earplugs on so he couldn't hear us. The security shooed us away from the barrier, but I ran to the sound booth and asked them for a setlist. This was when the soundman told me he saw my banner just now from the stage and it was the best banner he's seen so far this tour. Managed to get a setlist. [thanks but a dream]


    The gig tonight was brilliant! Loved all of it. First time I've seen Coldplay live, and am so glad I went. We had tickets in the front mosh. Especially loved Politik, plus, Viva La Vida, The Scientist, Lost.. oh the whole set list was fantastic. And the balloons and millions of butterflies just added to the whole show. [thanks cocoperth]
