Coldplay Life in New Orleans

I witnessed the best concert I’ve ever been to Tuesday night as the culmination of my 30th birthday surprises ended at the New Orleans arena at the Coldplay concert! The show was moved up to 7pm which was only a half hour earlier than scheduled but seeing how we didn’t get out of there until after 11, I was thankful! This was one of the best line ups I’ve seen:

So we had our fare share of awesome accents – Australian, Irish, and British (actually distinct when you hear them 1 after another and the Irish was the best!) The bands were all talented. I kept telling Rae and Ali, if “they” are this good then Coldplay is going to be NUTS!! And they were!! For one of the world’s biggest rock bands they haven’t lost the ability to connect with members of their audience, even at a huge arena show!

Enough of my jibba jabba. Here are the boys kickin’ it in New Orleans:

    You bet Irish accents are the best…especially Northern Irish like Snow Patrol.

    Or Northern Irish transplanted to the UK for a while before being dragged to Australia…like my wife.

    Sat behind Howling Bells on a flight back from the US a few years ago – nice guys + gal in addition to being a cool band.

    Glad you had such a great time…it was fun following the tweets 🙂
