    Coldplay Live Review - Verizon Wireless Amphitheater, Virginia Beach, VA (20th May 2009)

    Coldplay's Viva La Vida tour continued on last night as they played at the Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre, Virginia Beach. Coldplay (Guy and R#42) again posted some tweets before and after the show, including soundcheck pictures, which you can view in the recent posts here at the official Twitter, including some from Guy. The setlist was the same as the previous two nights.

    OMG OMG OMG We ended up front row in the pit right in front of Johnny...it was great. Our pit was standing room and it was great, we got there early and were front. As far as I know the set list was the same, they played 2 times out in the grassy area. Oh god it was great. I just was looking at the setlist from Bham and it was the same for this show. Now as for the free CD I got mine but had to wait a bit in a line because they ran out and had to go get some more. Chris was a bundle of energy tonight...man I wish I had half of what he has. they changed our show time last minute from 7:30 to 7pm. We got there at 6pm and then the Howling Bells went on the Pete Yorn and then Coldplay went on at 9pm. [thanks kristifuqua]


    Drove down from DC to see the show. Amazing as always. Lucked out with great pit location and cool neighbors. The setlist was the same. Chris messed up "Postcards..." and said that Will was mad about his mess up and would take it up with him after the show. At the end of I'm a Believer...Chris asked each of the band members individually if they were "in love ?" Will and Guy answered with a "ohhhhhhh" with Jonny giving the lowest of "ohhhhhh's". Because VA Beach houses a major naval base, fighter jets were flying over every 10 minutes which Chris made reference to it by saying it was their "transport". During their lawn set, Chris had VA Beach do their version of the "mexican cell phone wave". For their last encore, the guys wore their Grammy jackets. [thanks jbarry5503]
