  1. Yes I am, and I did buy that one. I just wasn't sure if it was a genuine promo, because it is Benelux only..
  2. Hello, I just made a new topic, but now I see this topic. Maybe somebody can help me. Does anyone know what the Magic promo is supposed to look like? I bought one, but was expecting a card sleeve (like in the Viva and Mylo era) and am afraid I bought a fake... Can anyone help me? Thanks!
  3. Hello, I was wondering if anyone could help me. I am collecting all the singles (and if there are no singles released, then the promo's) of Coldplay. I have got almost every one, just missing a few (Atlas, Christmas Lights...) I have just bought a promo of Magic, but am doubting if it is a real one or a fake. Does anyone know how you can tell? First, I was expecting a card sleeve, like the promo's in the Viva La Vida and Mylo era. But this one is in a case. Also, it looks like anyone could have printed it themselves. Does anyone know what the promo is supposed to look like? Should it be a card sleeve? Thanks in advance!
  4. Wow.. I felt so lucky to even get tickets, but now that I see this.. I got a seat on top of the Circle, the last row. I wondered if I should ask an employee of the RAH if I could change seats, as I saw so many empty seats in the front, but I was afraid to miss a song of the concert, so I didn't. *sigh* I just should have tried.. This was only the second time that I didn't watch a concert from frontrow, so I would like to classify myself as the "die-hard" fan they were looking for :P
  5. Wauw, still reliving the beautiful 1st of July. What a day... The concert was great!!! Although I was all the way in the back, last row of Circle seats, I really felt part of the show and felt the energy. Goosebumps all the time.. The sound in the RAH is really amazing, beautiful! (The cheering and clapping when the band went on stage gave me goosebumps to begin with!) But this day was extra special to me because I got to see the soundcheck!! :D I arrived around 2 pm at the Hall and went inside the Box Office/Restaurant, to check out the place. Then I saw this door towards the Stalls, and just checked if it was locked.. And it wasn't! So with a beating heart I went in and was amazed by the beauty of the Albert Hall. And of the beautiful stage that around 30 or maybe 40 crewmembers were building up. I was so excited I got to see this, but ofcourse there was no sign of the band. So I decided to leave again. But outside I realized..what if I would sneak in again, just wait en see the band do a soundcheck? So around 4 pm I went back in. Only now there were some crewmembers in front of the door, so I couldn't sneak in. I waited around a little and just when they walked away for a few minutes, I snuck back in :wink3: I could see the stage was almost finished, so my hopes were up high. I was sitting at the floor in one of the stalls, or maybe it was the Choir section, because it was next to the organ. I was so scared I would get caught, and every time crew members would walk by, I would make myself very small haha. But when 2 members walked by, just said 'hi' and didn't send me out, I was a little more relaxed. After 30 minutes the band arrived! First to arrive was Phil, then Jonny. They talked a bit, then Will and Guy came in as well. I was so excited, just to sit there so close to them. But I didn't dear to say anything, because in fact I was intruding. And then Chris arrived...with Simon Pegg, his wife and their daughter Tilly. Chris invited Tilly onto stage, and what followed was beautiful!! Chris played piano while Tilly was singing, and they played a couple of childrens songs, like "the wheels on the bus go round and round". It was so sweet and really beautiful!! (I felt a little bit like I was intruding on a private moment...) Then after this the soundcheck started. It was so nice to see the band talk to each other, discussing which songs should be in the setlist. I heard Chris say "Maybe Phil is right, we should change the setlist. Why don't we play some old songs? Don't Panic? Everything's Not Lost? Or A Rush of Blood?" I wanted to scream YES, PLAY ALL OF THEM! :lol::lol: (but didn't) :rolleyes: The soundcheck lasted for an hour and contained Ink, Viva la Vida (with Will and Chris standing right in front of me at the 'b stage', I had to stop myself from coming out of my hiding place haha), Don't Panic, Everything's Not Lost, a happy birthday song for little Tilly Pegg, and Always In My Head. After these songs the band invited the whole crew onstage to take a group-picture. When the band left the stage, I felt luck was on my side today, and I quickly walked up to the part where they would leave the stage. (Again, "act like you belong" seemed to work, because nobody from the crewmembers glanced at me!) Guy was gone, but Will and Jonny passed me. I quickly said hi, shook Jonny's hand and wished them luck for the show tonight. Sadly Chris was already gone, I didn't see him leave. But what a day! I couldn't believe I got to see the whole soundcheck, it felt very private and was very special to me. After that my day was already great, even before I saw the concert itself. Which was awesome!! Unfortunately very bad quality, but this is the band soundchecking: Again, very bad quality, but click for a little snippet of Don't Panic! :D
  6. So is there gonna be a meet up or anything before the show? I've never met anyone of you, so I have no idea what everyone looks like haha.
  7. Same here. I had Seetickets as well as Gigsandtours open in Google Chrome. First in queue voor almost 30 minutes, with the mention "sold out", but after a while I got to the tickets page and saw "not available" for all the categories. I had exactly the same experience, with suddenly popping up 1 ticket for gallery, then 2 for circle, then 1 for stage, etc. When I would click 'buy', I would get this screen:https://twitter.com/Politikbauk/stat...486272/photo/1 (don't know if you can read it, it's small) Then I saw some categories change from "tickets not available" to "sold out", but there were still some 3 or 4 categories which didn't mention sold oud, so I kept trying. And then suddenly I got through at Seetickets and got a screen with the payment and billing information. So just keep trying, even though it seems as though it's sold out in the queue! Good luck!

  9. Does anyone know how I can see where my seat is in this stupid seating plan for which you need glasses? :)
  10. Oh my god... I just kept trying with See Tickets, and got through.. Now I have one ticket for Circle (restricted view). So horrible seats probably, but what the heck, I'm there!!! I'm gonna go a weekend to London with my boyfriend. Little strange that I have to go to the concert on my one, but he was going to go for me anyway, not because he wanted to so badly himself. But still... a little strange. I can't believe I got a ticket. I'm shaking!
  11. Whaaaat, 2nd show?? My god, I can't see how we will succeed if it's such a bummer again.... But i'll try!
  12. Lol I also wondered about a "best available" option..!
  13. Still can't decide for which tickets I will go...
  14. Just to make sure I refreshed at 9.31 (i'm in the netherlands, so it's 9.33 here now) and was shocked when I suddenly got a list of all the categories....but still not on sale haha. Countdown...!
  15. I wish it was 9.30 already, this waiting is horrible :P
  16. Good luck everyone! I dreamt that I didn't get tickets.. but in my dream realized I was dreaming and thought: you know this is a dream, tomorrow you will succeed!! :wink3:
  17. Lol, me too, I'm going to do some work at home. Getting more nervous each day... :o
  18. Yeah, I want to get tickets so bad as well. But it's almost a mission impossible I guess.. :(
  19. Hello everyone, Soon my boyfriend and I are going to visit London. We are big vinyl fans and I was wondering if anyone of you can tell me where we can find some good recordstores in London. We mainly collect vinyl of new bands in the indie/pop genre, like Arcade Fire, Radiohead, Sufjan Stevens, Sigur Rรณs, etc. Does anyone know some stores with this kind of music? Thanks!
