Coldplay - New Years Eve concert at Abu Dhabi

Abu Dhabi Tourism Authority presents ... Coldplay
Live at the Volvo Ocean Race ... Abu Dhabi Corniche Breakwater

I walked to the venue, took me nearly 50 minutes from near Central Market on the Corniche ... all the way to Marina Mall! Traffic was murder, not surprising as it was New Year's eve!

I am here :-) Phew ... In time!

These were no ordinary tickets, they were in the Fan Pit :-) which is the area in front of the stage.

Coldplay kicks off :-) with Mylo Xyloto! Then it was Hurts Like Heaven ...

No prizes for guessing what they were playing here ... YELLOW!

I like these shots :-) all taken with my little Canon G9. It still works!

What a gig!

Chris Martin and his band then went into ... In My Place, Major Minus and Lost.
