Coldplay

Hello all!

Been a while since I last blogged. That was partly me being lazy and partly because I had very little interesting stuff to talk about. However, I went to the Coldplay concert yesterday and I can sum up the entire experience in one word...BRILLIANT!!

I have noticed that when I have some big event coming up, I get all excited waaaay before the GP/concert/whatever but that enthusiasm dies as the date of the actual event approaches. Fortunately, this is usually rekindled on the day/weekend in question and it was no different for the Coldplay concert.

Coldplay played at Burswood Dome in Perth on the 7th of July '06. It was the first time they'd been to Perth in their 9 years of recording music. I was there to see them perform live.

Seriously, Coldplay are a band to watch live. They sound wonderful on CD, but that sound is 1000 times more joyful when you hear them live. And Chris Martin...I'm in love with him. I think it was after seeing him on 'Enough Rope' with Andrew Denton. He seems like the kind of guy that could say the meanest things and still be charming. And, he has the clearest bluest eyes I've seen in a very long time. Even the Scandinavian boys on the Swedish soccer team did not have those kind of eyes (Btw, what is it with having totally 'un-good' looking players on soccer teams...some of the games were so boring...how do they expect us to sit through the entire game if there's no one to perv on??!!)

Anyhoos, back to Coldplay...If you like their songs, I would highly recommend seeing them live if they came to your city. I loved them. I came out of the concert deaf, hoarse and without feeling in my hands (from clapping so much!), but surely, if anything those are the best indicators of a good concert.

I loved Coldplay so much that I wished it didn't have to end. It was positively depressing for me to go back home (Sorry Leenz for the contemplative blabbering on the way back). I have nothing to cross out from my calendar now...nothing to look forward to.

Had the weirdest montage of dreams last night...there was one about me not being able to change my MSN nick...and another one about me being pregnant and my mother-in-law hating me and my brother-in-law trying to woo me...Go figure!!

Adios my friends...my next post will probably be after the World Cup finals on Sunday. GO ITALY!!

COLDPLAY, COLDPLAY, COLDPLAY!!!!!
Dammit they were too brilliant for words...the concert was quite short tho. i think that's why they took so long in preparing, so it cld seem like we were at the concert for way longer than the 1h15mins they were actually on stage. how lucky were those damn ppl in the centre rows and the chick who's camera he stole??

PS i see ur having ur makeshift coldplay concert in ur room now as well :D

They were good...Too damn good if you ask me and seriously, that's a bad thing!!

Yeah, I know, we missed out on 'touching' Chris M. but $10 he would have been in our section if WE weren't there!!

Yeah, am having a makeshift concert in my room...trying to cement in all the memories I have of yesterday's concert :(

PJ!!! No dear, we didn't record anything. In hindsight, we should have, huh?? :(

Finally, finally I have found another soul who doesn't want France to win the World Cup!! Come on Italy! Forza Azzuri!!

P.S They don't deserve to win Pam...In fact $10 they are going to lose to France...miserably!!
