Coldplay plays nowadays in the "big show club" (those who can easily fill up a huge stadium two days on the row). They are a bigger band today....but definitely not better. The golden era after the two masterpieces "X & Y" and "Viva la Vida" it´s obviously difficult to surpass....or even equal. Many of the more recent songs don't even get close. A bit to much balloons, fireworks and some unnecessarily "pep talk" from Chris Martin is turning the music....into a sparkling (xyloband) show.
I saw this band back in August 2009 at Stockholms Stadion - and that was probably one of the top three concerts I ever experienced. The concert at Ullevi Stadium yesterday was okay....but no more.
Best in show: "Something Just Like This" and of course...."Yellow"
