I’ve been dying to see Coldplay live for SO long! They are one of my favorite bands and I didn’t want to miss them this time around! Tickets went on sale months ago and I pretty much just told Irving we were going no matter what. He reminded me that I’d be almost 9 months pregnant, but we decided to go for it anyways. Baby loves good music.

The show was at the Hollywood Bowl and for some reason we got there 2.5 hours before the show started. I should know better that shows never start at the time on the ticket. We clearly don’t go to enough concerts.

Everyone in the audience was given one of these funky 80s bracelets and were so excited to see what they were for.

Turns out they were actually part of the show. They all lit up different colors to the beat of the music they were playing. It was so cool to see thousands of them blinking in rhythm at the same time.

Here’s a video I found on Youtube:

We loved the show, they had tons of energy and the lasers, lights and wristbands were really fun.

But we were surprised that all those wristbands went to waste after. They didn’t recycle them or have collection bins. Kind of a bummer.Coldplay at Hollywood Bowl (5)

I think the baby liked the show, I could feel him/her dancing around in there.

Now we’re more excited than ever to play this CD over and over when the baby gets here! YES!

Last night, Irving and I went to see Green Day at the Irvine Amphitheater. It took us forever to get there… almost two hours. We couldn’t figure out why they’d want to play there and not somewhere closer to LA. But believe me, it was definitely worth the drive.

AFI opened for them, but by the time we got there, we were starving, so we skipped them and had dinner instead. 🙂

I snuck in my awesome lollipop for dessert. HAHA

First of all, the set was AMAZING. Definitely one of the best music sets we’ve EVER seen at a concert. It was beautiful and entertaining. And the choreography of the lights was amazing too.

See that city landscape? That was all a video screen! So cool!

They played sooo many songs. About 38 in total! They seriously played for THREE hours straight!!!! [here’s the set list]

I LOVED that they played almost every song from the Dookie album! It was amazing to hear all those songs live. I used to listen to that album (ahem… on cassette tape) over and over!

I have a great video of them doing this song that I’ll post later… but that fire was all fake, but it looked so real!

They are just amazing. They had so much energy and went from old stuff to new stuff just like that.

I thought the band was just the three of them: Billi Joe, Tre Cool and Mike Dirnt…. so who was this random guy rocking out in the back? lol

It’s amazing that Green Day has been together since 1993? They sill rule rock and roll like no one else can. The show was SO impressive.

Three hours later, we walked away feeling like kids again. It’s shows like this that make the ticket prices and Itunes downloads seem worth the money. What a fun night!
