Coldplay Show in Nashville

Chris Martin in the sound tech area from my crappy camera phone.

2 years ago I was one of the many witnesses of the magical night at the Ryman Aud. with Coldplay. That was one of the best shows that I had ever seen that night. So it stands to reason that I wasn't going to miss the next Coldplay stop here in Nashvegas.

It was a bigger, more produced, fanatical show. Better than the Ryman show? No, but I'm not sure that you can really compare the two shows. The venues are totally different. Last night at the Starwood Amplitheater was a perfect night for a concert. The moon was full, the temp. was chilled, and the smell of weed was in the air. I noticed last night that weed kinda smells like body odor.

Chris Martin and Co did a great job. You could tell that Chris was getting over a virus (which canceled 2 shows earlier in the week), but he was as animated as ever. Jen and I had amazing seats dead center next to the sound board (where Chris paid a visit toward the end of the show).

The sound wasn't consistent. It seemed as if the main sound guy would go take a smoke break leaving an assistant to run it. One song would be good, the next great, and then it would be crap...only to repeat. One note on the sound...the drum sounds were great from start to finish.

Over all it was a night of great songs, engaging lyrics, and stellar production that could have been over the top. All from one of the world's most intoxicating bands.

Incredible show. I'm still recovering. Can't wait to see them again. I was about 5 rows back to the left side of the stage. My already abundant respect for Coldplay has increased 10 fold.

I'm jealous. Your crappy camera phone picture looks way better than my crappy camera phone pictures.
