  1. Around in 2008/09 but I don't remember which one. It was Viva La Vida or Lovers in Japan or Life in technicolour ii. I can't remember they were all playing in music channels. But it wasn't until mid 2014 that I started listening to coldplay (bought their albums etc)
  2. Chris also mentioned it in one of the Paris dates that they were filming again all the 3 concerts for a dvd
  3. It's mostly the actual guitar sound he uses martin guitars, they're very warm sounding.
  4. Hey, So the first one is a sampler from Native Instruments the Maschine Studio. The synth used by Guy is a Minimoog Voyager and finally the drum pads are just triggers for a sampler like the spd-sx. They're the PD-128-BC by Roland.
  5. "We're gonna go away for 2 years or so.. But we'll be back here again, I promise!" One big band, one big band! JUST BELIEVE IN :heart:
  6. Actually Chris's improv is always done while the rest of the band walks back to the mainstage. Sometimes he talks or sings. The request song was skipped because the concert started about 15' late. There was a problem with some lighting fixtures in the right side of the stage.
  7. Phil's always with them he works with the production office during the tours!
  8. At least for the Lyon date the stadium has issued a policy that bags are not allowed (with exception an to fanny packs)
  9. For tomorrow's concert in Lyon, France all pro cameras are banned (reflex, gopro etc)
  10. They will be surely be applied for the European leg. In the US there are different safety rules/guides and there haven't been terrorist attacks so they might differ.
  11. Tram hours have changed. They start at 17.00 but you can go with a normal tram (T3) and walk for about 15'!
  12. Coldplay have a really bad history with pianos/keyboards. Their early years they used a Kawai mp9000 (that's the sound we hear until today) From AROBTH to MX they used the Yamaha GT-20 silent piano (no actual string in it) But Yamaha stopped the making and the support for this piano and because none of these are road made they kept breaking. R#42 (Miller) has a blog about ending up with 5 GT20 pianos for one concert (normally there were 3, 1 main, 1 spare and 1 on the B-stage) and using them all! During Ghost Stories they got some new Yamahas DYUS1E3 PE, full upright piano w./ strings and of-course MIDI capability. They used them until the Superbowl (I remember the Yamaha piano breaking down in the St. John @ Hackney AHFOD concert). So from the and superbowl and now on they are using the Kawai - K300 ATX2 (always with a back up waiting on the back left side of the stage). In the beginning of AHFOD they had also a Kawai on the B-Stage (going up with a lift) but probably Chris wanted something shorter so he would be able to look at the crowd. Here come in the keyboards. In the X&Y era a Guy was using a Moog Voyager. In the Viva la Vida and Mylo Xyloto era they used 2xKorg KONTROL 49 But in Ghost Stories they went back to the Moog Voyager and a cut down Kawai MP8 (to about 49 keys). Back in AHFOD we began with the Moog and the MP8 but later on they proved to be not so road worthy so we moved to some simple 49 key midi controllers (I'm not sure about the brand). So today we have: Mainstage: 2x Kawai K300 AXT2 on (1 on the riser and 1 hidden as a spare) 2x Generic 49 key MIDI keyboards (maybe the Korg KONTROLs?) B-Stage & C-Stage: 1x MP8 or MP9000 (I think it's cut down to about 66 keys not 88 nor 49) Also there's a Kawai or Yamaha upright piano waiting as a spare in the B-Stage Note: On the stringed pianos apart from the midi triggering the kawai grand piano sound from the playback racks there are also 2xDPA microphones for blending in the sound. Love
  13. Yes ProTools on both macbooks actually the whole system is double for redundancy. There's a switch that can switch from A to B (pro tools only or both PT and motu interfaces)
  14. They said nothing about not bringing beer bottles :p;)
