Back in June my Mom and I went 50:50 on tickets to Coldplay for Jurgen's birthday and last Saturday the long-anticipated day finally arrived! Coldplay and U2 had been on my top two list to see live and ironically enough, I got to see them both play in Johannesburg at FNB Stadium this year. I have to say though, Coldplay officially knocked U2's socks off - they were hands down the best band I've ever seen perform live. I'm so so so glad we were fortunate enough to get tickets!
We got there a bit early and so decided to prop our ourselves on top of the steps at the beer garden and take in the view and people watch for awhile. I must say the view of the city from the top was pretty spectacular.
The concert itself was absolutely amazing and packed full of hits including Yellow, The Scientist, Fix You, Viva la Vida, Life in Technicolor and Every Teardrop is a Waterfall. Not going to lie - I even teared up a little bit during their last song - it was that good! All in all it was a wonderful night filled with good music, good food and good company - I wish I could relive it all again, but for now pictures will have to suffice :)
What did I tell you? *spectacular*
What's the best concert you've ever been to?
What band/musician is at the top of your list?
Next on my list would either be Robbie Williams or Ingrid Michaelson, can't choose between them.
