i suppose its possible - chris martin is a big fan of the band so he might want to be there.
u2, or bono at least, have been known to show up at random gigs all over the place and as far as i know are fans of clodplay too so maybe.
that in mind - did anyone notice that the coldplay london gig and the 3rd croke park gig are on the same day - i've already got my coldplay ticket and as tempting as another u2 gig is (i'm already going to friday night croke park) i'm gonna have to stick with what i got.
no chance of u2 showing up at that coldplay concert then

there are enough room for both bands and they know that. it's good that they are friends and admire each other's music.
I don't understand this either. Anyone who knows anything about both of these artist know they respect each other.
U2 is the mentor and Coldplay is the student/graduate. With that said, I find a remarkable difference between these 2 groups.
I have a feeling the only reason so many think they sound so much alike is because they (Coldplay) have said in that they are influenced by them(U2). And U2 have said they like their music.
There is no problem here.

No idea about the original question....but after hearing Talk and Speed Of Sound Coldplay seem to be doing the U2 kinda thing as far as songwriting and production goes. I think they'll peak with this album though and then slowly go downhill.

Coldplay made 2 albums , well 3 ok. So they're now in the stage whe4n u2 did war!
They will never be as big as u2!
Maybe after 11 studio albums, an experimental decennium, and lots of world tours, different styles in music, just like u2!

I wouldn't be at all surprised if Coldplay did show up.

And, that's just fine with me -- Coldplay is really the only new band that I've heard in the last five years that has the power to move me with their music.

With all the Britney Spears and Hillary Duffs out there, let's embrace good music and real talent, and not worry about any rivalries!

Where in the original post was it asked what your opinion of Coldplay is? Where? NOWHERE. The question asked was, since Coldplay's show and U2's show are a day apart, is it possible they would be at each other's shows? I think it's possible, it could very well happen.

Now, can we please start actually responding to the thread topic and stop turning it into a Coldplay-bashing thread? Hmm?

Greatest post EVER!!!!! (well, at least in this thread)

U2 fanatics = the most insecure and oblivious people on Earth

Is it possible one band could show up at the others' concert? Definitely. Will it happen? Who knows.
