    Coldplay Live Review - Hershey Stadium, Hershey, PA (24th May 2009)

    Coldplay's Viva La Vida tour continued on last night as they played a rain-soaked Hershey Stadium, Hershey, PA. Coldplay (R#42) posted some tweets about the weather as Mother Nature threatened to spoil the show. You can view the tweets in the recent posts here at the official Twitter. The setlist was the same as previous nights.

    ok soo earlier today i went looking to find the boys. I circled the stadium and found what a thog=ught to be the perfect spot for them to enter. The venue was beautiful. It turns out though that there was no souncheck today for whatever reason.I talked to a coldplay crew guy and he said be back at around 630. After i met jaysmine who was also "on the hunt". So i came back at the venue at around 610 just to find out that they had already come in. So my expierience started out with some lost hope. So today was my friends birthday and we went to the hotel he was staying at and suprised him by telling him we were going to coldplay. He thought he was in boston the geography wiz. So I return to hersheypark and enter my seats. OHHH MYY GODD the seats were amazing right next to Guy's ramp. Ahh. So 10 minutes in our seats and it begins to pour so the seats were evacuated and we stood under the side sections for a half an hour. Howling Bells eventually got cancelled and Pete Yorn's set was shortened. Pete Yorn was pretty good as i got that bass feeling in my chest. Once i heard magnificent i went crazy. Then Jayz. Then the classical piece. In regular order. Then omg Coldplay. The boys were so into it tonight even though Chris tripped in the begining of LIT and burnt himself. Many puns and lyric additions wee made in relation to the rain. The crowd was small but boy did they sing. Everyone was dancing to the majority of the songs. Same setlist though. The lighting was amazing outside and the air was nice after the rain. The boys were so into it. Jonny especially he was dancing all over the place. AND ALL THE GUYS NOTICED MY SIGN. we were right on the barracade so we had Great access to the catwalk and during Lovers In Japan, Chris touched my sign!!!! Like he grabbed it. And it wasnt on accident cause he was smiling right at me. I almost fainted!!! during lost chris took wills drumstick for viva and banged sooo hard on the drum that it flew in the air also the crowd did an xcellent mexican cell phone wave. Also after LIJ the crowd started doing the vlv chants again awesome!! AMAZING NIGHT!!!! ill post the vids i have and the one with Chris and the sign. AMAZING! [thanks professa95]
