Coldplay rocks Abu Dhabi - Volvo Ocean Race

Where: Volvo Ocean Race Destination Village - Corniche Breakwater, Abu Dhabi
When: 31st December 2011, 10:50pm - 1st Jan 2012, 12:10am
Who: Coldplay
Ticket: Fan Pit, 695 AED (Or RM$ 580 or USD$ 200)

Chris Martin mesmerised the Abu Dhabi crowd, who were on their feet throughout!

The Scientist :-) Pukka!!

Nobody said it was easy
It's such a shame for us to part
Nobody said it was easy
No one ever said it would be this hard
Oh take me back to the start...

Then it was ... Violet Hill, and God Put a Smile Upon Your Face ...

Up in Flames ... Us Against the World ...

Chris Martin really gets into it!

And next came, Politik .... I grew to appreciate and love Jonny Buckland at this gig. Guy is good!

A brilliant concert, with the right amount of "theaterics", but more so because of the band and the lyrics and the fantastic music.

Wikipedia says ... Buckland is noted for his sparse arrangements and use of slide. His stylistic chiming and ringing sound have led to some comparisons with the playing of U2's The Edge.

I totally agree, and that's what I told OK after the gig :-) Jonny Boy is goooood!

Did you know ...
Chris Martin often refers to him as "Jonny Boy" during live concerts, particularly if Buckland is about to do a solo or a long riff. Martin has said, "There would be no Coldplay music without Jonny Buckland."
