A quick review
Whoa! My third Coldplay concert, and it couldn't be better! I try, but I cannot imagine another band being better live than Coldplay. "All I can promise you is that we're gonna play the best fucking concert, we played in our lives," said Chris in the start, and he didn't let us down. Indeed, he did not.
It kicks off with Back to the future, before Mylo Xyloto and Hurts Like Heaven takes us straight to heaven. Chris is dancing, you can literally smell the fireworks, and it is simply fantastic. Continues with In My Place, and the butterflies. There must be millions of them, if not billions. It's pure magic already. And it gets better.
Major Minus is electric, and the butterflies comes again with Lovers In Japan. I think LiJ sound better on the Viva la Vida Tour, but I might be wrong. I'm open for debating. Everyone sing along to The Scientist ("I don't want you to stop singing", says Chris, and we continue singing), and then comes Yellow - with an amazing acoustic beginning. It actually sounds a bit like Swallowed in the Sea in the start, before Chris sings the first verse in a low key. We love it, everybody love it.
Violet Hill might be the best song ever written, and it's even better live. This is awesomeness. God Put A Smile Upon Your Face isn't changed since last tour, and I'm grateful - 'cause the new intro is so good. On Princess of China they are joined by Rihanna on the screen, and if I should critizise anything, this might be it. Let Coldplay do the job, god damnit. Let Chris sing.
I would prefer they did an old classic instead of Up In Flames, but it's a nice song though. And they DO an old classic with Warning Sign, which is lovely live. A Hopeful Transmission is turned into Don't Let It Break Your Heart, which is a live favourite. And then it's Viva la Vida time.
Will I ever get tired of that song? I don't think so, and 50.000 danes will agreed with me. It's party, and it's even more party with Charlie Brown, my favourite for tonight. Chris is lying on the floor now, completely exhausted, but he gets up again, and steal a key and takes a car et cetera. Whoa. Everything explodes. Paradise follows, as good as ever.
The boys say thanks, and disappear. Returns in the back of the stadium, doing Us Against the World and Speed of Sound acoustic. I love it, especially SoS. Will gets a pleasant round of applauce for his vocals on UATW, and then they come back to the main stage.
Clocks reigns, Fix You explodes, and then it's teardrop time. Every Teardrop Is A Waterfall. Oh God. I don't want it to quit.
No surprises in the set list, as you can see. What I missed? Spies would be fantastic. Everything's Not Lost as well. And I would give anything to hear Don Quixote aka Spanish Rain live. But I know it's too much to ask for.
