Hey, I have a question for those who have had GA tickets for a Coldplay concert. What time do people generally start lining up? I have GAs for the concert in Chicago on Tuesday. and I was just wondering what time I should show up for good, but not necessarily front row seats. Thanks!

For the Seattle gig I was front row centre and lined up around 11am. I think people who got there later in the day, like 3-4pm still got up quite close. It all depends on security... how many lines let in at a time and the mad dash to the stage. In Seattle, they started a bunch of lines to check tickets just inside the venue and it allowed people who hadn't been waiting long to get real close. Not too cool in my opinion, but I managed to secure my spot none the less.

At Vegas I showed up at around 8:30 and was also front row center. I think people started showing up about an hour after we did. Good luck girl! Take tons of pics!

So I went to the Coldplay show today in Chicago....

and it fuckin rocked!!!! The show was really good and the band played really well......Chris Martin was great, and he was really funny.....everything was really good....the only complaint i had was that the crowd seemed to be really dead....i mean no one seemed to be really jumping and singing along too much....especially the people who were on the floor (general admission)....seriously, i think i only saw about 5 people who were actually jumping....on the other hand, at the U2 shows everyone is jumping, in and outside of the heart....and everyone is always singing along. i guess it makes you think about the quote that bono said...its something like, "U2 on its own is a very interesting group and all, but U2 with its audience is a culture"

I saw Coldplay at Jones Beach, NY last week and it was an exhillerating experience. Their new record and this show is the best thing I've seen and heard since ATYCLB and Elevation Tour. What is great about Jones Beach is that its an open air theatre literally right ON the beach. So you have Coldplay, the moon and the ocean in the background.

And Chris Martin is a very excentric fellow. You would never know that by just listening to their music. Their concert reminded me a lot of a U2 one. You know, the dramatics of the whole thing and Martin's relationship with the audience. This is a very good band, and I hope they continue their quest.

I have only just been introduced to Coldplay and just picked up their CD this week. I really really like it, I'm totally impressed.

Next time their in my town , I will definitely be going!

They really seem to have something special.

Very special. I'd love to see them live. IMO, A Rush Of Blood is the best album since The Joshua Tree. I'm serious. No, really. I mean it. Seriously.

Hey U2One! I didn't know you were going to the show! I was there too with my friend Kristie. We were on the floor in the second row in front of Chris. Allow me to agree with you that it was a FREAKING AWESOME CONCERT. Shiver. Everything's Not Lost. In My Place. Green Eyes. Hell, everything. There was not a weak spot in the show. And Chris Martin is such a wonderful, charmismatic, and incredibly energetic frontman. I'd seriously say this is the best show I've ever seen besides U2.

As for the energy of the crowd, I think there was a really good energy on the floor. It was just really hard to move cause we'd been standing in the same spot since we came in and our (or at least my) feet and back were really sore. But I think we were all feeling it, anyway.

After the show Kristie and I hung around to wait for the band to come out. It took awhile, but they did and we got to talk to and get a pic with Chris, who is just the nicest guy ever.

I posted about this in more detail in this thread, for anyone who wants to read :

Congrats on meeting Chris, Kristie!

It sounds like all the concerts were awesome- I wish I could've gone.

Hey. Does anyone here know if there are people who record Coldplay shows and/or where I could get my hands on a copy of the show I went to? Cause I'd really like to have one. Thanks in advance to anyone who has any info.

Actually, I found someone at this Coldplay message board who recorded the show and who might make me a copy. No word from him yet, though...

As for bootlegs in general, you should go post there to see if anyone has any (I'm sure they do) and is willing to give you a few. I have no idea if they will since I just started posting there yesterday but the people there seem pretty nice and it's always worth a shot: http://coldplay.artscience.net

I'll definetly let you know once I get a copy. And I really wish I knew the setlist. Somebody started a thread on the Coldplay board asking what it was, and the thread sunk like a rock. All I could think was, if this were a U2 board, 12 people would have replied at once with the setlist, and then the next 2 pages would have been lamentations over why ______ wasn't played and exultations of how awesome ______ is live. Ah, well. I guess I'll find out when I get a copy of the show...
