Coldplay's friend, and British actor, Simon Pegg once again made an appearance on harmonica during the performance of Green Eyes on the C-Stage... and thanked Coldplay for making his ‘dreams come true’!

    Just back gr8 night, was fantastic, venue is terrific. Coldplay were brill, best song for me was Death AAH Friends, the new stuff more than stands up, strawb swing was gr8 too, if I had to choose, weakest was Yellow, getting bored of it now, it's like seeing Oasis play DLBIA or Wonderwall. Anyway, crowd were hot, Simon Pegg played harmonica during Green Eyes I think it was, was superb overall, goodnight. [thanks tonethestone]


    we're back ! sorry didnt give any updates... we didnt get to see the band but they definitely saw us. Camille wants to say something, she's on a R42 high right now.. Khalplay says : yeah, it was worth the wait : we saw few black-tinted-windows cars in which we're quite sure the band was (confirmed by a security guy) BUT the main important thing IS : we SAW R#42 looking at us, smiling behind the not-that-tinted-glasses ! WOWOWOW tomorrow I swear we'll get him XD [thanks Chavi]


    The show was good, I was danced my little ass off as always, probably upset the people behind me but who cares?! I was twenty feet away from Chris as he sang The Hardest Part solo, and having seen them six or so times from the start of the X&Y tour I never even heard that once...I feel so glad and blessed. I had a ring on my finger from the girl I love like no other (and a girl I have to run off and find what she's been posting in my absence!! ) I met Chavi and she is just as wonderful and kind as she appeared in her Chrissy signing vid. My only regret is that I didn't meet Lauren (Lauve) but it is only a matter of time. My goodness the highlight of the night was hearing 'now my feet won't touch the ground' throughout the various songs...no CoL but they better bloody play it tomorrow or there will be trouble of the kmchi kind [thanks kimchi]
