Sorry that posting has been infrequent lately. I’m working on a project and trying to move. I will be writing about the Toronto Film Festival in September again. I know you can’t wait. Meanwhile, I will be posting before then. I still have a cool giveaway that I will do sometime this week.
Coldplay Concert Review
I saw Coldplay live a week ago today for the first time and it was very blah. The band clearly could not be bothered to rehearse before the tour and phoned in their performance. Chris Martin’s voice was not so great, the visuals of the show were blah, the band did not have enough presence for a venue as large as the Forum and they did not seem to care that they were doing a very half-assed performance. I’m sure that a lot of people didn’t notice and I wondered for a minute if I was being too harsh of a judge since I used to work in the music industry and have seen so many live shows, but with live music you can really tell if a band is performing at its best capacity. The sound sucked as well. DK likes Coldplay more than I do and had wanted to see them live forever. I didn’t want to ruin his time and didn’t even say anything negative about their performance until he did. With the way the economy is going, it’s much harder for people to find extra money for things like concerts. It offended me that Coldplay didn’t take their performance seriously and didn’t seem to care when they messed up chocking it up to the first night of the tour. Chris Martin even let his vocally challenged drummer sing a whole song. WTF? I’ve really lost respect for them. If they’re not going to bring it for a tour, they should just stay at home and enjoy all their millions. Hopefully, they will be better rehearsed and more energetic for the rest of their tour. Just beware.
