    FANTASTIC show. My DAMN DAMN camera erased 100 pics or so including the ones on the right catwalk where I was right there in the front row....BAH! Nevertheless, a fabulous show and they all got Orlando Magic jerseys that they then threw out to the crowd. [thanks pjoalfa]


    This was my first Coldplay concert and it definitely lived up to the hype. Absolutely amazing! My girlfriend and I got to touch Chris' sweaty arm, haha. So cool. The setlist was the same as I've been seeing listed. We didn't bring a camera cause it said not to right on the ticket and we thought it'd be confiscated, but we seemed to be the only people without one! Too bad because we would've had some great close-up shots. I hope someone else posts some good ones. But again, incredible show. I loved Chris' energy, especially on "In My Place" and Viva La Vida." It was refreshing to see that he didn't care about technical perfection, but about entertaining and energizing the crowd the whole time, which in turn made the show perfect. And the glowing butterflies were very cool. We got so distracted looking at them plague the crowd that when we looked at the stage again, Chris was right next to us, haha. OK, that's about it. Orlando=Great Show! Goodnight. [thanks Dave Street]


    It was an awesome show and got to meet the legendary Angie and Mich, all the way from Liverpool wrapped in a British flag...what a great time! And sat with bta5857 with her daughter and jbarry (the originator of the Philly 2006 sign gang) It was a sign gang reunion! Mel and Lor, we didn't get to meet as they were at the Oxfam booth...maybe next show! We were in the sixth row, well, actually the fourth cause there were only like three seats in the first row and five or six in the second row on the ends. So close... was really totally unreal! Chris kept reading all of our signs ...we had alot of different funny stuff. We had him laughing to himself each time. That was worth making all of them. Tons and tons of butterflies covered everything... that was pretty dramatic! The encore started and out came the band in Orlando Magic jerseys ... were really nice blue with long purple sleeves with their personal name on back...Orlando loves Coldplay and Coldplay must love Orlando... second time they took off their shirts and threw them to the crowd. Chris threw his to a young boy who got moved from somewhere up high to the first row and made some nice thumbs up gestures to him during the show. Then at the end he went directly to the boy to give him his shirt and some stupid guy jumped in front and snatched the shirt and Chris yelled at the guy "Ah, c'mon!" and Chris had a disappointed look as he really wanted the kid to have it. Orlando show rocks once again! [thanks airieslady]
