    A highlight for me, was of course, yellow - which was quite funny because members of the crowd up the front kept tapping the yellow baloons towards Chris, and he was hitting them with his guitar like a cricket bat. He got the crowd to sing the final part of Yellow, claiming that we were all auditioning fot TV show 'Australia's got Talent'. Very funny stuff. He also said that the track could be sold and that due to that performance the band could 'now be better than U2'. I was suprised with the addition of 'Glass of Water', but I rathered it than the 'Chinese Sleep Chant' to which it replaced. Most people didnt know it but I belted out the words! After that was Cemetaries of london, which sounded AWESOME. Encores were terrific, Chris sounded brilliant all night, his voice was right on key. So was Will's, as DWNC was thoroughly enjoyed by the crowd as a 'jovial' moment of the night. I lost my voice singing LIT2, which was great because thats where the night ended! [thanks tauiwi]


    Tonight's concert was incredible. I lined up from 2pm and got right on the barrier at the front. It was so unbelievably magical and amazing. From the interaction with the crowd to the butterflies and of course being right in front of Guy - he looked great tonight! Disappointed not to meet them after but very happy that I got someone's plectrum - could be either Chris' or Guy's because it came from that side of the stage. Loved that they did glass of water....shane warne was also in the crowd as well as kate cebrano who was going crazy for coldplay! [thanks sputnam]
