Coldplay at Barclays Center - 12/30/12
Coldplay

Coldplay began their three-night New Year's run of the NYC area at Connecticut's Mohegan Sun Arena on Saturday (12/29), and last night (12/30) they kicked off night 2 of the run, which was also the first of two Barclays Center shows. Their set at Barclays Center focused on mainly on Coldplay's 2011 album, Mylo Xyloto, and also included a good chunk of A Rush of Blood to the Head. The full setlist and pictures from last night are in this post.

Coldplay wrap up their run at Barclays Center tonight (12/31) (New Year's Eve) and tonight's show, unlike the others, is with Jay-Z. Tickets for tonight's show are still available.

Didn't end up making it to this show, but I can say with certainty that it FUCKING SUCKED.

Great show as usual by Coldplay! Band sounded great and Chris Martin is a great frontman. The bracelet light show (each fan gets a bracelet that lights up during some songs) is the best concert light effect I have ever seen.

Where does one begin? The homemade douche suits? The randomly black opener for a bored white crowd? The fucking stage costumes? Good lord.

I finally made it to Barclays for a Nets game. My seat was pretty good, so can't complain about the sight lines. Everything else sucks though. The seats are crammed in so there's no leg room. It's very steep. No big deal if you don't have a fear of heights, but some people have complained about this and I understand why. The massive fucking score board video screen thing is way way way too big. It's a distraction. Security is awful. They do the wand on everybody entering. Why? But the worst part of the game had to be the constant shitty music, mostly bad rap, played at volume 11.

On behalf of all the normal white people in Brooklyn (who are not zany transplants here for an extended vacation) I just want to apologize to the rest of the world for giving safe harbor to such clown shit on the verge of 2013.

Please do not judge us all based on these sad specimens.

Honest question -- why do people like Coldplay? It's like Radiohead lite for pre-teens as far as I can tell.

12:34, 12:38, and 1:24,

The real question is why do you hate successful bands so much? At what record sale total do you turn on a band? Is is 50 or is it when they get too big to play Pianos?

Bands like U2 and Coldplay have massive followings that include people from all walks of life and that is actually a GOOD thing. It is sad you can't appreciate that because that is what makes these shows such a great experience.

If you don;t like then, that is fine. But don;t attack people who do because of their age, place they live, job, etc.

Good bands become big. That is what they all want to do. Even your little hipster darlings that play Arelene's every Tuesday want to be as big as Coldplay. You may not want to admit it, but it is true. Sorry to burst your impression.

U2 got big by trying to be good, Coldplay got big by trying to be big.

I thought it was Politik, which they didn't even play!

Aren't their other people in the band besides the singer and lead guitarist? They get no BV photo love. And while we're on the topic of pics, howz about for 2013, we have less of the same looking ones in articles? Just a thought.

Concert and light show was great.
SEATS SUCK!! Too small, no room to pass by other people, no leg room and too STEEP. I thought it was actually very dangerous.
Poor design without regard to ergonomics at all!

short term memory loss Such persons who have sleep or other addictions may have a low retentive capacity just because the brain is very rarely exercised.Due to consistent practicing their basic memory mechanics and brain encoding methods in which the process of learning has become habitual.For example, if you need to pick up pencil, notebook, carrot, and milk from a supermarket, you can link these items like: pencils to write on a notebook and carrot and milk to make carrot pudding.

car battery replacement At the moment you'll benefit from a price reduction of 18% meaning you will save $33.Will I Obtain a Warranty?Of course you need to do, this Optima battery includes Twelve months (free replacement) warranty.After recharging, if the battery still fails to start the engine, a try should be given to jump start the engine.The principle behind solar car battery chargers is that they "trickle" charge, meaning low level current is fed continuously to the battery to prevent if from losing its charge.
