It's just cuz it's the IN thing to say...

I have a friend who thought the Guys were in their 60s...wow, she judges age well...

Trust me a lot of people around me wanted to kick her ass for me. I just let it go because I did not want to get kicked out of the concert and lose my spot on the rail.

Dallas Pit Tickets Hunt Update:

I got my hands on a pair! Now all I've got to do is sell my old seats for face value and make back what I originally spent on them. Payed more than twice as much for the Pit , but I was desperate.

Anyone want tickets for September 23rd in Dallas? Face valueeeee

I do not care for Coldplay myself, nor have I read this thread. I just came across this in a search for something else, and am passing it along for anyone interested.

Coldplay performs in the U2 mode
Theater review

By C.E. Hanifin
Enquirer staff writer



The Enquirer / Keli Dailey

Chris Martin of Coldplay enthralls the crowd at Riverbend Center Tuesday night.


ADVERTISEMENT

Could Coldplay be the next U2?

Both bands have lobbed a steady barrage of megahits at America from across the pond. A charismatic, socially conscious frontman leads each group. And they share a penchant for rock with an expansive scope and an emotive core.

When Coldplay performed Tuesday at Riverbend Music Center, the British group demonstrated its most striking similarity to its Irish predecessors: The ability to forge an intimate connection with individual members of a thousands-strong arena crowd.

Just like U2's Bono, Chris Martin exudes an enigmatic yet approachable confidence. He gripped the crowd in his thrall from the minute he strode onstage to the final notes of the show's finale, the current hit "Fix You."

At various points during the concert, Martin hopped on one foot, slowly pinwheeled across the stage and stood transfixed by his own pixilated image on the gigantic video screens that were the sparse set's main ornamentation.

The screens, which flashed grainy images of the quartet as it performed, echoed the intentions of the countless fans snapping shots with their camera-equipped cell phones. Near the end of "The Scientist," the four musicians aimed their own disposable cameras at the crowd, then tossed them out to fans.

The entire set flowed seamlessly from one skillfully orchestrated number to another. Standout numbers "Clocks" and "Everything's Not Lost" soared into musical and emotional crescendoes, lifted by Martin's pure vocals and pristine piano riffs.

Moments of subtlety interspersed the capital-R rock songs. The band members clustered near the stage's edge for the acoustic "Til Kingdom Come," a heartfelt ballad they wrote with hopes of performing it with Johnny Cash before he died. The gorgeous "Swallowed in the Sea" rang with a lullaby lilt.

Martin, who takes his well-crafted music just as seriously as Bono does, also possesses a wry sense of humor that keeps him from becoming a caricature of rock earnestness. During the group's first U.S. hit, "Yellow," a bevy of bright balloons bounced down onto the crowd.

"OK, the song isn't going to finish until all those balloons are gone," Martin said, then held tight to one sustained note. The resulting pop of bursting balloons mingled with the crowd's laughter.

(that's the complete review, taken from: http://news.enquirer.com/apps/pbcs.d...0318/1025/LIFE)

Congrats!


I can't wait to see them twice about a month from now

I've been hearing good things about the show

And I'm so excited because, from the pics I've seen taken from the pit, it looks like you're literally right up against the stage!


I'm still trying to determine what is the best time to get there to be right up in the front for the pit... any ideas?

Well doors at the Dallas show are at 6, and I have no classes on Friday, so I'm going to drive home Thursday afternoon after my last class, then Friday morning around 11 or so I'm going to stake out my spot. Once more people arrive, I'll ask them to save my spot, then drive back to Mansfield to pick up Miss imp13.

So I'm getting there at least 6 hours early.

I find that mildly disturbing.

There you go, you are wrong!

Does it kill people to actually read???

Hola amigos

Does anyone know if they´re coming to Chile in December ? That´s what I´ve heard several times during last 3 weeks on a few Chilean Radios

I hope that´ll be true . I´d love to hear songs like A Rush Of Blood To The Head, The One I Love and Life Is For Living ( IMO they should close their shows with this song !!! )

Peace
