    Coldplay Live Reviews and Setlist - Parc des Princes, Paris, France (7th September 2009)

    Coldplay's Viva La Vida stadium tour arrived in France this evening as they played at the Parc Des Princes in Paris. No major changes to the usual setlist. The newly formed ;@vivacrew tweets commenced in Paris today as several Coldplayers took over the new Twitter account - see the pictures after the jump. The free CD Leftrightleftrightleft was not distributed tonight due to restrictions imposed at the venue by the police [thanks charley], but Coldplay.com confirm that the album to be available from FNAC and Virgin stores as long as you keep hold of your ticket stubs. The white balloons previously seen in some photos were actually used during support act performances, not Coldplay's - which 'were all yellow'! Some more excellent photos of the concert were taken and published online almost immediately by Sound of Violence. You can view all the pictures here now [thanks SOV]

    Unfortunately, Coldplay were forbidden from giving out the Left Right Left Right Left live album at tonight's show in Paris. However, ticket holders will still be able to get a copy of the album CD from selected FNAC and Virgin record stores. Please check back in the morning for details of the stores where it will be available. Until then KEEP YOUR TICKET STUBS. ps - apologies for our dodgy French [Anchorman @ Coldplay.com]


    Malheureusement, Coldplay était interdit de donner le Left Right Left Right album au show ce soir à Paris. Toutefois, les détenteurs de billets pourrez encore obtenir une copie du CD de quelques magasins FNAC et Virgin. S'il vous plaît, retournez ici domain matin pour vérifiez les détails des magasins où vous pouvez trouvez le CD. Jusque-là, TENIR VOTRE BILLETS. [Anchorman @ Coldplay.com]


    I'm not long back from the Parc des Princes show - it was really great! My own personal highlight was The Scientist, it was sublime Other standout tracks were Life in Technicolor ii and Fix You.......I enjoyed this concert more than Bercy last year. Sidenote: WHY must so many people try and video the whole show with their f##king phones?! It really pisses me off! [thanks cant think of a name]

    Hi! I just came back ! This show was just AMAZING ! But I do not know, I have bad luck for this day.... Unfortunatly, my camera just decided to say "f...ck you" when we arrived in Paris. So I just have my phone for my pictures. Then, I had to find my friends on coldplaying who were in standing place.... But I could not find my friends ! But I met Virginie and Patricia, they signed my Teddy Bear ! After that, I noticed I have forgot to bring lots of stuff and I was pretty sad. We went to the concert and Chris said we will not have our LRLRL, today. And after that, we were completely lost, at 1.30 AM !!!! We were exhausted AND lost ! Here is my concert review. Well, I was here hours before the show, juste because I wanted to see my friends on coldplaying. I was overexcited, of course. I saw their trucks and I was just . There were plenty of trucks ! And it was like a .... myth. THEIR trucks, in front of ME !!! I was pretty sad because there were not as many coldplayers in red and white and with a crown as expected. But sad also because my camera fucked for the first time ever THIS DAY !!! At 7.00 PM, I decided to enter because I wanted to see the supporting acts. It was Bat for Lashes. Pretty Good. The singer was disguised in Indian. Nice. Then, I went to see the trucks and the roadies. I saw Jackie. And I suddently felt very good. I was hoping for meeting the band, I did not know why ! So, I missed Flaming lips. I just see this band few secondes. And I did not meet Coldplay. I suddently heard Magnificient and I runned like a crazy girl ! Then, it was Kanye West and we saw the Dancing Roadie, Wayne ! He is amazing, eh ? I almost yelled because I have seen Miller, then. He was taking pictures. And then tadadadada dada dada.... The lights turned on. A,d it was a big roar. LIT began and Coldplay appears like 4 angels. All my tribun suddently gets up. Me too, I am dancing, I am yelling. I am in another world. That's the Coldplay effect ! ...


    The phone wave was just AMAZING ! It was a huge success ! So beautiful ! I have to explain something.... When I am euphoric, I yell "yououh".... During this concert, I always yelled yououh ! My mom was like " eh calm down ! It's a concert !" But VLV was the most intense moment according to me. I do not know, it was moving. All these people who were single ohohohohoh..... During The Hardest Part, Chris sat in front of his piano, played during 3 secondes and left his piano with a "merci" . It was so funny ! The phone waves were AMAZING. So beautiful. And Chris explained the whole thing in French. So cute. I love the way he pronouced "mobile". When the lights began to light up my area ( almost at the end of the show ! ), I took my signs. A nice girl took by her own one side and we began to yell and shaked it ! It was cool ! The, I show her my second sign and we laught and did the same thing. I am not sure they saw it but it was fun all the same ! I thanked her to help me to be a groupie. Chris explained we will not have our LRLRL. The audience yelled. He said something like that " If you want to complain, go to see the police. It is not our fault !" He said then, we will have LRLRL later thanks to Fnac if we kept our tickets. I hoped it was a joke or something like that but NO. I was so upset and sad. And the yellow encore with fans did not happen ! But it was great, I am happy ! But I do not know if it is just me but for this concert he did not speak very much. What a pitty, usually, you cannot stop him ! I tried to wait for the band but my mother was tired. So we left. The, I met the "signs girls" she was singing ohohohoh with her boyfriend. She recognized me and his boyfriend told her for fun : "Hey, don't sing in front of her, she will become mad !!!" [thanks angedediamant]
