Chris Martin, Coldplay (Rod Laver Arena, 4th March 2009)

British mega-group Coldplay toured their Viva La Vida album through Australia in 2009.

Frankly, for $140 you expect a bit more, show didn’t really ever get off the ground (perhaps with the exception of the middle set on the stage in front of us), but songs like Yellow, Viva La Vida, The Scientist and Fix You still did what big songs are supposed to do.

As always, the sound in Rod Laver Arena was superb, and if other members of the band could show a little bit more animation on stage I dunno… this band could be big one day…

Martin’s voice is much the same as it is on record, which is kind of refreshing these days but then it just becomes a case of whether you actually like it or not.
