Really was a cracking night. The rain, thunder and lightning just added to it. Got soaked to the skin but was well worth it.

I reckon they earnt the $1.4m, one of the best gigs I've been to. Although I think the conditions helped, really good crowd, very friendly and some very very pretty girls. Where did they all come from?

Yea was great. Thought they would have played 'speed of sound' or 'warning sign' though.

The show was amazing.

Their music is cold and unemotional.......... like it was created by a committee of civil servants..............

No amount of live 'energy' or 'atmosphere' can alter that............

im not their greatest fan by any stretch of the imagination, but as a show, it was amazing, the lightshow, the imagery, the stage set, the sound.

Really Really good performance.

Totally agree, they were excellent

The storm added to the atmosphere and I think a little unfairly they are called bland and boring... I thought Martin was pretty funny and certainly puts energy into the show...

they are called that because chris martin is a soppy little tart, but as a band, albums and also live, they are pretty bloody good.

Plus they managed to keep the show going when they had technical problems on the stage......great gig.

Lasers looked amazing with the huge water droplets and the lightning framing the stage.

Of course not.............

As I said, I don't care how 'good' they are live - everyone who is worth their salt should be - I just don't like their music.
