    Coldplay Live Review - Wells Fargo Arena, Des Moines, IA (12th June 2009)

    Coldplay's Viva La Vida tour continued on last night as they played at the Wells Fargo Arena, Des Moines, IA. Chris Martin made several tributes to Des Moines throughout the show as this was the first time they had played here. Guy posted a picture of himself on Twitter just two minutes before the start of the show - which you can view after the jump. The setlist remained largely the same as previous nights.

    Hey guys, show just got over. Amazing show! I was really skeptical about an Iowan crowd but they were really into it! Snow Patrol was awesome as well. Howling Bells were pretty good. Got Guy's setlist. (Actually got two but felt greedy and gave one away) Same as all the nights before, although they added more than one tritube to Des Moines throughout the show ( I think they felt guilty for never playing here before). [thanks bearcat1229]


    i was there tonight, and Coldplay totally rocked it. I was all the way back in the 200 sections, but it was still by far the best concert i've ever been to. They sounded fantastic live, and really really got into it with the audience. I was a little surprised that they played almost their whole new album, but then again it is the viva la vida tour. I think some people might have been unfamiliar with a few of the songs, and i thought they would have played a couple older ones (speed of sound, trouble, other random songs from their first 3 albums). But overall, definitely worth the expensive tickets! Great, great show. I would definitely see them again any day [thanks jabba5]


    More on this concert including reviews, videos, pictures and tweets here onwards.
