Coldplay Friday night at the Wachovia Center


So the Coldplay concert on Friday night was awesome! First we tailgated in the out in the parking lot first with friends, eventually moving inside about 9 pm.

Unfortunately they only played 1.5 hours!? I do think they played a better show 3 years ago when I saw them at was once the "Tweeter Center" however I don't want to complain....

Coldplay opened with "Violet Hill" standing behind a "sreen"...then Chris Martin broke out with an acoustic guitar with “Life in Technicolor." Then, the curtain came up to reveal the backdrop of Eugene Delacroix’s bare breasted Liberty Leading The People. The band wore blue and red military outfits as seen in the pictures. No black shirt with holes in the armpits this time, lol. They played past hits like "Yellow", "Speed of Sound," "Clocks," "Fix You," "The Scientist," and nearly all of Vida. Then for the encore....my personal favorite...."Green Eyes!"

I am also proud to report that my mom & dad had no major problems watching the kids (Nick did bring a watergun in the house to squirt my dad). In fact they fed Anna so much that she slept through the night til 5 am!?

I'm so jealous! I'd take 90 minutes of Coldplay anytime. Grandparents are great, aren't they? They watched our kids this week for 3 days - all without a hitch! I'm listening to Coldplay now as I write this comment too- thanks for the background music!

At least you had a good time. And 90 minutes would be plenty for me with all those people pushing and shoving!

Wasn't it nice having a night off!

Sounds like you had a good time!

Man that bites about 90 minutes?! I haven't been to a concert in awhile but I thought they lasted at least 3 hours? maybe I'm wrong.

Glad Anna was good and slept through the night...isn't that heaven!? well except for the aching about to burst breasts in the morning...HA!

speaking of nursing...someone is crying for me now. she is such a mama's girl!
