Coldplay

Stade de France, Paris

What a trip, Paris in early Summer, celebrating Bastille day on the 14th with the Tour Eiffel lit up with fireworks, and then the piece de resistance, Coldplay live in Paris, Phenomenal!

Fiona and I just love Coldplay, they have a way to keep current, there new music is just as exciting as when their earlier albums were released, and they seem to be able to keep producing the anthems we all love to sing along too.

It was always going to be special for us seeing them in Paris, so perhaps a bit bias, but there is not another concert we would have proffered seeing!

Finally we were told mid-way through that this concert would be in a movie they are making, so even more for us to look forward to!

They are off touring in the Americas now, must get onto Ticketmaster :)
