    The setlist was the same with the exception of Reign of Love. I seriously screamed every time I got any glimpse of Will (Jonny was blocking him most of the time) I noticed that Guy had his back turned to the audience for a lot of the concert, I agree with people who were mentioning a couple of pages back, that He doesn’t seem to like to interact with the audience that much. At some point during the concert, the lady behind me spilled her beer all over my hair. It was so annoying and made me miss the end of fix you. It took me a while to get back into singing dancing mode. Some cute moments: when Chris thought that people were smoking weed up by the C-stage, When they dedicated The Hardest Part to Jennifer Hudson, At the end when Chris said “Have a great election, enjoy your next four years of democrats!” , also I saw the cutest thing… at the end when they were all clapping and going to different places on the stage, Will and Guy passed each other and did this cute little face/hand gesture to each other as if they were surprised to see each other.. Almost like “omg man what are you doing here??” it was adorable. Yellow was incredible. [Thanks cold_love23]


    Now on to tonight. As I said, I'm not writing a full review, but after the show, comparing it to Boston on this tour, I think that while both were utterly astounding and near-perfect, Coldplay are tired, as they are reaching the end of this tour, and it shows. I think that the energy level and enthusiasm shared by both the band and the audience was noticeably higher, but at the same time, Coldplay are always awesome live, and to anyone who hadn't been to a show on this tour before (my friend that I went with) this would have been a jaw-dropping experience.

    I'm back!!!! wow it was fanfuckingtastic!!!!! Noelia is amazing and we had a blast!! Sean (Proffessa95) and his great family met us with all of his amazing signs!!!!! The band totally loved the signs!! When we first got there i was in need of a beer and we saw the Oxfam table and met Pete! what a cutie. i took some pics of us, will upload tomorrow, i am so tired. we walked around a bit to veg and realize where we were and how friggin amazing the night was going to be. we started to walk down the stairs and the guards would look at our tix and tell us to keep going, i knew we had great seats but these were amazing. we were right next to Guy;s ramp and literally 5-7 feet from the stage. it was so surreal, almost like the Today show but that was daylight and this was an arena.
