Unless Peter Gabriel decides to pull the Secret World show back out (or, let’s be honest, produce something equally as cool), I’m going to go ahead and say this Viva la Vida tour is probably the greatest thing ever. It was such a complete experience–very sensory–if they’d pumped the smell of lavender or something into the crowd, I promise my head would have exploded.
Here are some pics and, if I can figure it out, video (note: there will be more on Facebook, just in case you’re interested…and my friend on Facebook).
Opener Okay: Howling Bells. They were okay. It all kinda sounded the same to me, but sounded good?
Opener Best: Snow Patrol. I’d pay to see them headline, just unfortunately not as soon as October 2, because while they’re at the Ryman (I bet it’s such an awesome show!) I’ll be watching The Beastie Boys at Zilker Park. I’ll accept the trade off.
Coldplay. WOW. Just WOW. Side note: I think Chris Martin may be in the best physical shape of anyone on the planet.
