Coldplay concert review

I have been so excited to post my pictures from the Coldplay concert this past weekend, but was too exhausted on Sunday to do it.

Nick and I drove over on Saturday and met up with Meghan, Brynn, courtney, Brian and Lacey in Vantage and then caravaned over to the Gorge and set up our camp site. Meghan's little sister Molly and her friends met up with us at the camp site about an hour later and we had our tent city.

The concert was absolutely amazing. They were so outstanding and we were on our feet dancing and singing the whole time. Coldplay was on stage for about 2-hours or so and did all their hits. They did Viva La Vida (my FAVE song) during the middle of the show versus the end and I was so glad, because it was the song I had been looking forward to the most.

And during the show, there were two "surprise" states set up in the audience and it just happened to have been right in front of us. So for three songs, including their version of Billie Jean (which I loved), they were about 20 feet from us, it was amazing!

Then on the way back to Seattle, we were able to stop in and see Nick's grandma, then his uncle and family, and then his brother and family and see their new beautiful month-old daughter!

Overall it was a wonderful weekend and Coldplay absolutely blew me away! I am a fan for life now!

Carol I KNEW you would love it!!! and you got to enjoy it as I finally did- outdoors on the grass. seriously, it made it THAT much better. Didn't you loooove their suprise set-ups? i love how they always do that, so genuine and humble. Like it means a lot to them that you're there.

I totally forgot (in my excitement!) about the Billie Jean tribute. AMAZING!!! did they do the cell phone wave? ha i loooove Chris Martin. AMAZING man, amazing voice, amazing band.
