I went to the Coldplay concert last night.
It was EPIC.

We got there early, at like 6pm, and went to our seat (Level 1, Aisle 11 - pretty close to the stage so yeah) and just chatted and ate hot chips.
And the Pierces came on and they were actually really good. I'd never heard of them, and the stadium was only about half-full (or half empty?) but yeah.
They sung a few songs, but I'd actually heard one of the songs (it was called Secret or something, idk?) because it had been played on Big Brother. I don't even watch Big Brother but omg how would I know that?

And then, after a cheese sandwich eaten by yours truly, the Temper Trap came on and HOW GOOD WERE THEY, oh right I'm the one writing this review sorry.
But yeah.
Of course I'd heard of this band, because they are from Melbourne and that is epic. Yeah. Omg.
They played the Drum Song too, which is the best song ever wow. Also Trembling Hands, Sweet Disposition, etc etc heaps of other sweet tunes.

And then: COLDPLAY.
Everyone had a wristband which lit up at the same time. So everytime they were lit, the whole audience looked like a starry sky, but a colourful starry sky with pinks and greens and reds and blues and OMG IT LOOKED MAGICAL.
And Chris Martin was amazing, so so so so good.
there was a runway and he would sometimes go along there and dance around, twirling and stuff. It was so amazing.
And the crowd all sung along at some parts (especially Fix You, Scientist, Paradise) so that was so rad.
Halfway through, we all stood up and clapped along, which was pretty epic.
And the ENCORE.
like they left and must have gone around to the other side, to a stage in the middle of Standing Room B.
So that was pretty cool.

Like, I swear, it was AMAZING.
I was with my friend who's not really the biggest Coldplay/Temper Trap fan (still knew a few songs though), but she loved every minute.
Would totez recommend.
I feel like running up to Sydney and Brisbane, and going to those too. (Man, where's that $100 million I won in the lotto, oh wait...)


(lol, this is the first proper concert I've been to, I went to the Wiggles when I was 2, and I'm sure that was MAGICAL and BRILLIANT but I barely remember it)

I will post photos a little later, okay.
My camera wasn't that great though. (I only had my phone, lol)
Good times.
