    Coldplay Live Reviews and Setlist - Alpine Valley Music Theatre, East Troy, WI (25th July 2009)

    Coldplay's Viva La Vida tour continued across North America last night as they played at the Alpine Valley Music Theatre, East Troy, WI, before heading east back to their base in New York. The Coldplay-shaped puppets were also seen doing Dallas recently - see all those pictures after the jump. No major changes to the setlist as Billie Jean replaced I'm A Believer in the acoustic set again. The fantastic Elbow were the main support act for this and the next few shows.

    Just home from the show. Fourth time seeing them on this tour and gotta say it was by far the best. Chris really said it a few times that Alpine was the best crowd of the entire tour so far. All of the coldplayers who had pit got into front row I believe. I know for sure Ang, Kell and my self. Pics and stuff tomorrow I am falling asleep at the keyboard! [thanks Ebs757]


    Just got back from the show! Got from row with my friend Steve and Angie. Got amazing pictures. By far the best Coldplay show I've been to. The loudest crowd too. The boys were having so much fun on stage. Jonny AND guy were really dancey. My pictures will be up soon. [thanks the.hardest.part]


    So I will have to say that this was the loudest, most enthusiastic crowd I have ever seen at any concert, not just Coldplay. I was in the pit far left right where the catwalk comes out. It seemed like everyone was singing and cheering to EVERY song. You could hear the roars behind you all night long. The boys were having a blast too. Kind of surprised this far into it that they are still able to enjoy it so much. A few mistakes were made, but that made it even more fun as Chris joked about it. During "The Hardest Part" it started to downpour and the people on the lawn started roaring, you could tell Chris wasn't quite sure what to do! I also got a high five from Jonny right before the encore :-D. [thanks bearcat1229]


    omg the show was excellent! It started to rain as Chris sang "I can feel it come down" in the Hardest Part. I thought that was ironic. You could see the beams of lights in the rain which made it look trippy. about halfway through the show the band left the stage and walked onto the lawn about 10 feet from where i was standing! Then they sang green eyes! Strawberry swing, Lovers in Japan, The scientist, and viva la vida were my favorite performances of the night. Overall a great show!!!! Oh and also does anyone else get really sad when the show ends? I mean i had the time of my life its just that I didn't want it to end so fast (it was the fastest 2 hours ever!) [thanks blackhawk08]


    I was in the lawn, but jumping up and down when they played Viva La Vida. It was great! Sounded awesome and the crowd was really into that one. I am so glad that I got to go to the show! I need my yearly Coldplay fix. I wasn't going to go, but in the end we got discounted tickets for lawn seats. I totally forgot that they play 3 songs out in the crowd...now I get what 3 songs front row meant. Oh well! We got there later around 6:30. When we got in a lot of the lawn in front was already taken over. I think they have gotten even more popular, because the last time we were at Alpine, I think we arrived later and somehow were able to get 2nd row in the pit area. Looks like people were probably waiting to get in. It was a great concert. I am glad I got to go again! I loved when Chris played Hardest Part...it sounded really good. Despite the rain...his voice sounded really good and that is one of my favorite songs off of X & Y. Sounded great acoustic. Green Eyes is always great...and Billy Jean sounded even better live yesterday than in a video that I saw online recently. Chris seemed exhausted/tired at times...probably because of all the concerts they have performed. But he still put out a great show, didn't give up...and put all his heart & soul into it. It was an awesome show. I loved all the songs! I wish the concert didn't end, but it always has to. [thanks gvargas]
