Heather and I attended the Coldplay Concert at the BOK Center here in Tulsa Thursday night.
Heather is a big, big fan and I was a kind of well, you know, I like their song Clocks, and they are okay, you know, they don’t suck.
I’m a fan now. We have been to some great concerts over the years and this one ranks up there with the best. Heather said it was “the best” she had ever been to, even better than Sting. Sorry Sting, you are now second best in Heather’s eyes I guess
The lead singer, Chris Martin is a dynamo. Not only does he have a great voice and stage presence but he is very athletic. He was running and jumping while singing the whole show. And the special effects were timed perfectly with his leap and jumps. Confetti, flame, lasers, and big balloons. They spent a fortune on expendables that night.
They had an “A” Stage at the front of the Arena, a “B” stage in the middle, and a small “C” stage in back. They were everywhere.
Playing their heart out without a break for over two hours and 24 songs. Here is the set list.
They played rock songs and ballads, their new songs and some of their old songs, and everything in between.
The fans loved them!!
We’ll be back and I will trying to find where Heather hid her disk.
As an aside, they had four light people hanging from the ceiling. They looked all strapped in and belayed so probably OSHA is okay with it.
We missed the first opening act but the second, Alessia Cara is a dynamo who can really sing.
