Coldplay Concert!

The Coldplay concert did not disappoint!

This weekend we were lucky enough to go to the Coldplay concert in town. It was our second such concert-we went the last time they were on tour and vowed never to miss a show, no matter what it took to see them. So, we saved our money, bought our tickets and here we were...
It was AMAZING!! The night started off with thousands of LED lighted bracelets going off with the first song. Can you see all of those little lights? Red, yellow, pink, white, green and blue...all going off together or flashing as the songs were played throughout the night. It really was a genius idea.
Our bracelets were blue and pink, respectively. The crowd roared any time they went on. There was definitely an element of surprise there.
The stage was awesome! There was a longer walkway that led to an "X" in the middle of the floor. It was great because we had some speakers hanging in our way (as you can see below), so we loved it when they moved around. And move they did! If you've ever seen them, Chris Martin doesn't stay in one spot very long. He's a mover and a shaker!
Confetti was everywhere throughout the show. At the beginning, that's what kicked off the show: thousands of pieces of confetti fell from the ceiling and came shooting out of fan-tubes (super technical, aren't I?). There were also huge inflated balls that fell during the second song, giving the crowd something to do. It was crazy!
Like I said, the band moves around a lot. There were 3 different pianos that Chris Martin played at during the night: one on the main stage, one in the middle of the "X," (in that black space-it came up out of the floor), and one in the crowd...
This was during the first few songs of their encore. They were about 5 sections over from us on the lower level, playing on a stage in the middle of the crowd. I kept thinking to myself, "How can I get tickets that are right there next time?"
The show was amazing. We loved every minute of it. We can't wait to go again. And, I'm in love with Chris Martin my husband who took me to the concert! (But secretly I do really like Martin...who wouldn't?!)
