Coldplay- Quicken Loans Arena, Cleveland, Ohio

My first live rock show. 🙂


Life In Technicolor
Violet Hill
In My Place
Speed Of Sound
Cemeteries Of London
Chinese Sleep Chant
Fix You
Strawberry Swing
God Put A Smile Upon Your Face (techno version)
Talk (techno version)
The Hardest Part (piano – Chris)
Postcards From Far Away (piano instrumental)
Viva La Vida
The Scientist (acoustic)
Death Will Never Conquer (acoustic – Will singing)
Viva La Vida (remix interlude)
Lovers In Japan
Death And All His Friends
The Escapist (outro)

The crowd favorites were the confetti in Lovers in Japan, Politik, and the closing with Yellow.

It was a good show, but a little underwhelming. Now if it were these guys..

    Congratulations on seeing your first live rock show. My first concert was Billy Joel in 1990. I've been hooked on concerts ever since.

  2. Scott says:

    Woo-hoo! Congrats. (Me: Yes, 1983. Arrgh!! Too long ago.)

  3. WOW!!!!!!!! How wonderful!!!!Love those great pix!!!. (I never went to one…did you wave those little glow-sticks like they do in the movies?)

    Oooh! Lucky you. I went to my first one so long ago that I have forgotten who it was – the band is most likely forgotten too LOL. I'm not big on crowds but I have put the fear aside for David Bowie, Elvis Costello, Billy Joel, Elton John and Prince ….. I saw AC/DC and the Eurythmics (called Tourists then) in pubs in Sydney before they were famous. There are others but my memory is not what it was … LOL.

  5. Purplesque says:

    🙂 That is my biggest fear. I don't want to get hooked on concerts, they are darned expensive.

  6. Purplesque says:

    🙂 I was three years old in 1983. 2008 is a bit too late to get started, but I'm really glad we did this. (They did not even play my favorite song, A Rush of blood to the head.)

  7. Purplesque says:

    Thank you!People were waving cellphones. I remember wondering how fast glow-sticks replaced lighters and cellphones replaced glowsticks. 🙂

  8. Purplesque says:

    Wow, that's a lot of shows! I would love to see Billy Joel in concert..and I would Die to see Floyd or NIN..maybe someday. 🙂

    "underwhelming"? goodness, just seeing your still photographs makes me want to curl under the cot.

  10. Purplesque says:

    Oh, it was a great show in terms of the crowd and noise levels. I just meant that I didn't feel moved at a personal level..most of their music seems to have lost its connection with me.

  11. Grimfairy says:

    NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO. I missed out on tix both time here in Philly. They sold in like 1 minute! Looks like a blast!

  12. Purplesque says:

    It was fun, certainly. I only got the tickets because the show was re-scheduled and I started haunting eBay months before the actual date.

  13. James says:

    want to emphasize the good work on this blog, has excellent views and a
    vision of what you are looking for.
