Coldplay, Send Me A Postcard...

Music. Live music... It's getting to me right now, summer tours. In the Fall when I saw Coldplay in Denver, I was left wanting more. Isn't that always the case, never satisfied? Seriously, my expectations were surpassed greatly with their live performance. Our seats were good, but could have been better. I don't see many large venue shows, but that night Coldplay played to tens of thousands and it felt intimate and alive. To my delight Coldplay is now back in the States touring. And to my dismay all in the same breath they aren't coming to Denver/Colorado.

But they are playing in Nebraska.

Last week, I got all wrapped up in the idea of going to see Coldplay in Nebraska. Heck, it's the closest I can get and it's a seven hour drive. I updated my status on Facebook looking for company:

" is in search of wonderful company to drive to Nebraska with me on June 13th...There is a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow, it's British Blonde Gold..."

Yes, British gold at the end of the rainbow. In Nebraska. Did Coldplay forget about one of the most beautiful venues in the United States, world renown Red Rocks Amphitheatre? Alright, I am over they aren't coming here. Which means phase two planning.

Girls' road trip?

It could be fun, little adventure, some live music. Wait, wait, some fabulous live music. I've been fortunate to see some amazing shows through out my life and I am not lying when I say that Coldplay is definitely one of my top five favorite shows of all time. Take that Phish New Years Shows in 91/92, The Grateful Dead, Madonna, Neil Young, Pearl Jam, Bob Dylan, Ben Harper at the Fox Theater...

I am hoping the stars align, I score amazing tickets near the stage, I find some wonderful company to join me on the drive. I get to see Coldplay and more importantly Chris Martin's hands playing the piano. My weakness, piano playing and beautiful hands. Sigh. Chris, Jonny, Guy, and Will just create the most magical music. I can't stand the thought of missing them on tour this summer, even if it's going to take some true effort to make it happen.

Please universe, let this happen. Bring on summer adventure.

Well, this is what I am seeking... video quality,not great...but feeling wonderful (Green Eyes)!


In case you didn't know, Coldplay is offering a FREE DOWNLOAD of some live songs. The mix is just beautiful, I wouldn't have chose any differently. My favorite composition is Postcards From Faraway which bookends Hardest Part. Amazing.

Time for actions to have a result...Coldplay in Nebraska?

  4. You'd go to Nebraska for a concert? You are a brave person. I think I have a thing about concerts now. I used to go to them all. Now I have to want to marry the person to go. And still, I then want like perfect seats.

    My 19 year old self would be yelling at me right now. She was way cooler than me.

  5. That would be so much fun. But Nebraska is a bit to far for me. I saw them a few years ago in Wisconsin and it was an amazing show.

    Hopefully the stars align for you and you can go with great company (and great seats).

  6. OMG! I'm still reveling in the afterglow of last night's show! We saw them here in Atlanta and let me just say, you need to go! That CD they also give away a hard copy free at the show and is a very similar lineup to the songs they performed last night. I was supposed to see them last Nov in Denver but we were in Seattle that month so I can't say whether the show is the exact same. I say go anyway!! I have seen them 5x now and will continue to go every chance I get. I would definitely road trip it with you if we were still in Boulder. Such a good show!! He was DREAMY last night.
