    Hello. First time posteer, long time reader. Just back from the O2 and what a fantastic show! Never considered myself a huge Coldplay fan. Always thought (and still do) that their best album will be their greatest hits but found myself loving VLV so got a ticket when they went on sale. So glad I did now. Fairytale went down like a house on fire being Dublin. [thanks kmurph]

     

    yep, they played fairytale of new york and will sang it! What an amazing show..... I was in the very front row! [thanks marcus_on]

     

    Yesterday was absolutely amazing, the irish crowd is great and everything went smooth, they tried to make us sit but it was impossible and everyone stood up the entire time and danced on the floor. Will singing Fairytale of New York was a real surprise and it was even greater listening to all the crowd singing with him (apart from us since we didn't know the words)...and I got it on video with Jingle Bells as well. Setlist was the same as London except for the abovementioned cover of The Pogues, Chris sang also Back for Good at the end of The Scientist. I was front row close to the B-stage but my camera sucks so my pics won't be all that great. [thanks iriden]
