This house hunting thing has taken over my life so I've been slack about stopping by the 'hood. Here are some pictures from a Coldplay concert we went to two weeks ago. All I can say is to buy tickets if they are coming anywhere near you because the show was amazing! Their new album really lends itself to a live performance, and they played pretty much the whole thing.
One funny thing was the Navy flyovers during the performance. They weren't really noticeable during most songs, but during Fix You, Chris Martin just started giggling because the jets drowned him out. He recovered and worked it into the song with a lyric about the Air Force flying in or some such thing. This proved my point to Dan about why we are not looking at houses in jet noise zones at the beach. If they can drown out a concert, you don't want them over your house.
We had really good seats, which you can't tell from these blurry pictures from my point and shoot camera. I've seen them before, but from the lawn. This time we decided to splurge on seats under the cover, and it was really worth it since we are such big fans of the band. I've been to a lot of concerts so I don't really get that excited about them anymore, but when the band came out on the stage, I was so excited I couldn't contain it! So much fun! They came out into the audience twice, which was really cool. I hope they come out with a DVD from this tour.
Pete Yorn was the opening act, and he was really, really good too.
