Off to see Coldplay in concert at the NIA Birmingham on Monday night, anybody going?

I actually purchased the tickets to sell at a profit on ebay, unfortunately although I was offered £300 & £325 for 4 tickets about 3 weeks ago I turned both offers down like an idiot thinking I would get more nearer the date, teach me to be greedy as offers have been around cost price since :icon_rolleyes:

Oh well I do like them and the seats are near the front so should be a good night.

Coldplay are fab, my parents went along to see them and thought it was very good.

The amazing thing about the new album is that not only is it fantastic, it's using very odd intruments and in a different style to past albums. Definitely a top top band.

Glad I didn't sell them now, what a great night, if you like Coldplay they are fantastic live :icon_thumbup:

The supporting acts for such a popular band were a bit crap though.

Ears are still ringing! :icon_eek:

Have a good time Col

Too heavy for me :icon_smile:

I must be getting old as it seems to take ages to recover from these concerts nowadays, I never used to be like this, honestly feeling pretty deaf and tired today, and that's from watching Coldplay! Trivium would probably kill me off :icon_biggrin:

I always wear earplugs to concerts.

Being a DJ, going to a lot of concerts and riding a motorbike there is a lot going on in my life that can ruin my hearing. I have a set of customised earplugs that lower the Db without losing the clarity of sound. Probably one of the best buys I've ever made :icon_thumbup:

As for age.....tut! I'm 34 and I'll guarantee that the majority of folk at this gig tonight will be in their teens. I'll still be down the front

Who were the support acts Boss? I not a fan of ColdPlay at all but glad it was a good night, ColdPlay now seem to be copying a far better band - Arcade Fire, you should check them out if you haven't already.

Whats birmingham NIA like as a venue? As I'm off to see The Killers in Feb there, was looking forward to it but the two singles off the new album have been terrible!:icon_mad:

I too like Arcade Fire.

The support act was a lad called Jon Hopkins, to be honest I really really like/liked the trippy electronica but just thought they would have had somebody a bit more well known, for example when we went to see Radiohead they had MGMT and Bat For Lashes supporting, we all knew their songs so could have a sing along.

The NIA is a top venue to be honest, I know they change the layout though depending on the act, a tip for you, when you park in the carpark reverse in so you can drive straight out, if you need to back out you will be there for hours as nobody will let you out.

I love The Killers and agree about their new album, they will definitely do some of their old stuff though as did Coldplay.

Have a good night.
