    Just got back from the concert. Absolutely amazing night!!! I didn't keep a note of the set list but the set list in the image is wrong. Trouble was not played. Though green eyes was!!!, which was amazing. Also it is the the wrong order for instance the talk remix was not played after DWNC. So basically don't rely on it. (Just a few things I instantly noticed...its late). Nope cemeteries wasn't played unfortunately. The concert itself was epic. Coldplay really do sound just as good live as on CD, if not better. At the start me and my friends were the only people to stand up in our block to LIT but eventually everyone got on there feet to chant the 'whoooaaa' bit towards the end. Chris and the band, as expected, put on an amazing performance with the lights (lasers were amazing) , sound, music, everything just being perfect. Chris also does a great job of getting everyone singing and 12,000+ people singing fix you ended up with one of my friends in tears. It was that incredibly moving. The support band was ok apart from a DJ (Don't remember his name) who seemed to be playing the same music for about 25 minutes to some very strange video.

    Overall, most amazing night I've had all year....period. [thanks Pezza]
