Agreed, Imperor.

Should be fun to start seeing the reviews/video/etc. trickle in. I do want to try and keep some surprise element going as much as possible, but I'll check out a few things here and there, 'cause I do love hearing about people's experiences, too .

The Edmonton show got rave reviews, but some were disappointed that it was 90 minutes long. With five albums, and many quality b-sides, there's no way their show should be that short.

I wish it was longer too. Cut out one of the opening acts and make a longer set

Sheesh, I hope that was an anomaly. 90 minutes is paltry.

It's the norm, sadly.

I know the girl who posted that setlist!

Well, I'm pre-emptively disappointed.

But I know I'll enjoy the paltry 90 minutes. I'll just wish there were more.

I haven't been to tons of concerts-how long does an average concert last? Most of the ones I've been to have lasted about that long, if not less (granted a couple of them were a triple lineup, so everyone's sets had to be short for that reason). I think Crowded House are the only ones I've seen who've lasted longer, and I think it was about 2 hours with them. So 90 minutes doesn't seem that weird to me-of course, I'd love for the show to be longer, but eh *Shrugs*. Is there a specific reason these guys' shows aren't longer or something?

Most headlining sets for established bands go 2 hours or close to it.. However, the Foo Fighters usually go 2.5 hours. For comparison. U2 360 had 24 songs, Bruce plays 25 songs, Foo Fighters 24 songs, Coldplay 20. For a band with as much catalogue as they have, that's kinda pitiful.

Yeah, it's not the sound count or time that it boils down to...

It's the "how could you not play that song?" factor for me. RHCP did the same shit.

Coldplay Concert Setlist at Scotiabank Saddledome, Calgary on April 18, 2012 | setlist.fm

Lovers In Japan made it's tour debut last night. I love that Warning Sign is being played, as it's one of my favorites on A Rush of Blood To The Head. Great to see some more Mylo Xyloto tracks thrown in there, such as Princess of China and Don't Let It Break Your Heart.

It seems that they're limiting themselves to a 20 song set, compared to the 18 song sets in Europe. Still not good enough for a band like Coldplay, in my opinion.

I'm seeing them both nights in Toronto so hopefully I get to see both.

It's sad when I can think of 4 or 5 songs I'd like to hear that are not on there, and I was just a casual fan up until a little while ago.

I'll be very bummed if they don't play Lost. Although I quite like Lovers in Japan too, so I'm sure I'll live.

However, if they'd like to randomly drop The Scientist at the Seattle show, I'd love them forever.
