Video I shot of #Coldplay concert in Chicago, performing "In My Place."
Complete with awesome electronic wristbands that light up to the music.
And yes, that's me screaming. But look at the wristbands. :)
So, recently i went on a work trip to Chicago, a city which i ADORE. I realized that while i was there, one of my fave bands, Coldplay, was playing at the United Center. It was kismet. i HAD to get tickets.
Now, i've seen Coldplay live probably at least 2 times on each tour (so about 10x total). to say that i'm a superfan would be to understate my excitement for their music and performances. but this concert was different; it contained something i had NOT seen before. and now, concert has forever changed for me going forward: the electronic wristbands.
10s of thousands of multi-colored lights in the audience-all 3 levels of the United Center-lighting up in unison to the sounds of Coldplay's sweet, sweet music. the audience became a PART of the show. and i feel like somehow, that's exactly what every concert should be. plus, i believe they are using the twitter hashtag/keywords #Coldplay and #ColdplayFilm to make a concert film/doc about Coldplay, and anyone who Tweets while at a concert may just make it into the film. (that's my guess, anyway).
i won't wax on anymore, and i'll just get right to it! above is the video i took of one of my favorite Coldplay songs, "In My Place," and here is a close up shot of the wristband itself:
|My wristband, on a backdrop of thousands of other wristbands, all coming together in a symphony for #Coldplay!|
pretty cool technology, eh? what do you guys think? have you ever been to a concert that did something cool like this? share, people! :)
peace, love and progress,
