Amsterdam played in full, first time in nearly 7 years
Coldplay performed Amsterdam in full in concert for the first time since November 10th, 2005 (at Mannheim, Germany). It was captured on video from around the United Center by various sources  - but the first recording uploaded and posted was by Ebs757:

What an amazing concert. By far my favorite so far on this tour. I knew Chicago would be special. The guys were having so much fun and laughing at Chris' modified lyrics the whole night. Amsterdam was awesome. My friends always ask me why I see so many shows if they play the same songs, and now I can use this example lol. A bunch of the people near me who were singing MX songs stopped singing and looked awkward during Amsterdam and that was a little funny. I have to say the highlight of my night was when Chris came over to me and gave me a thumbs up, then bent off the stage to shake my hand. He had been looking over all night which was a bit weird since he usually doesn't stare for that long. I was doing my crazy dance moves. Hope he was entertained by them . That was my last MX stop and I'm glad it was so memorable. I am feeling a bit of peer pressure to go see what 77,000 Xylobands looks like though, so maybe one more stop in Paris. We'll see. [thanks JimmyD]
Last night, my friends and I were going to see Coldplay at the United Center in Chicago. We decided to do the over-the-top thing and make our own t-shirts before the shows. We printed the little symbols for each song on Mylo Xyloto, cut them into watercolor paper to make stencils, cut up some shirts, and spray-painted the heck out of them. One of my friends spray-painted some pants that she had dip-dyed beautiful neon colors.
We battled through Chicago rush hour, missing most of the first opening act. When we finally got there, I stopped to fill up my water bottle. I come back to see my friends talking to a short woman in a jacket and a guy with a green mohawk. I figured they were just other people at the concert who wanted to talk about our clothes. They were asking about my friend’s pants, and how long it took us to make our shirts. Then I noticed something on their belt loops: a green badge with COLDPLAY in the Mylo Xyloto font on it. I assume they want to take a picture of us or put us in some fan video for the website or something. They ask if we’re excited, if we’ve seen the band before. We tell them we saw them at Lolla last year, etc etc.
They asked where we were sitting. We told them section 305, the highest balcony. Then the guy says, “I’ll cut to the chase.” He turns to one friend, says, “Are you good with numbers?” Then he pulls out four tickets and asks, “Are these seats good?” Friend immediately puts her hands over her mouth and starts saying “Oh my God!” over and over. They guy turns to the rest of us and says, “Well it’s not the first row…it’s the second.” This is the point where I assume this is a giant scam. I kept thinking…who are these strange people offering these amazing seats…this must be a trick to get our tickets and get us kicked out. It wasn’t.
They took our tickets to give to Oxfam volunteers. How amazing is that? We thank them, hug them, head down the stairs and start screaming. I couldn’t believe this was real. Last year at Lollapalooza we staked out spots in the second row, waited all day, battled crowds, dehydration, and smoke, all so we could see Coldplay from about 30 feet away. We all said nothing could ever top that experience. We were wrong. We head downstairs. About 5 million people check our tickets as we get closer and closer to the front; security was tight. When we finally get all the way up to the second row we were all basically crying and screaming, and we were met with cheers by other fans in homemade shirts who had been just as lucky as us.
The concert was a once-in-a-lifetime experience. There were times when we were no more than six feet away from Jonny and three feet away from Chris. I made direct eye contact and got smiles and nods from all four of them. I had no understanding of my fangirling capabilities until last night. I screamed their names until I was hoarse, I blew kisses when they looked at me, I considered throwing my bra on stage (which would have been a bad idea considering I was wearing a homemade muscle shirt…). I always kind of looked down on girls who fangirl like that at say, Justin Bieber concerts. Something just came over me. I couldn’t control it. I was just so happy, so disbelieving. I screamed louder than I’ve ever screamed, I jumped higher than I’ve ever jumped, I made a bigger fool of myself than ever before. It was beautiful. I will never forget it. [thanks Feminist Judge] http://feministjudge.tumblr.com/
Wow, I'm so glad I bought the Wednesday ticket! My seats were great, OMG AMSTERDAM, and easily the best show I may ever see. The people nearby seemed to not be as into it but I still had a great time even though I went alone. next time I'm totally taking my son! [thanks roxyfire]
I have my Amsterdam up. Didn't catch the very beginning, and stoopid phone kept trying to focus but sound is good. Chris had a few whispers with Will when they got to the X stage and he pulled a piece of paper out and put in on his piano (lyrics would be my guess). I asked Dan Green after the show if he came down and spent the day practicing it and he said " you do know Chris don't you". No.46 - Everything has to end. I love Chicago. It's a great town. I have several crazy friends here and I always have a grand time. I believe Coldplay feels the same about the city. They always play great shows here. So there was no doubt in my mind that I would be coming to any and all shows they play here. They didn't disappoint.
My day started out not so great. Kidney stone to start the day is crappy way to start any day, but concert day is extra crappy. Luckily it passed early and I was ready to go that afternoon. I met Mike down at the UC and we walked around inside for a while. Ran into Kelly and her family on the 300 level. She said the roadies had been about checking them out but had left. Mike and I went to our seats on the floor and after the 1st act, Kelly appeared and said they got upgraded to row 2. We were on the floor on Guy's side about even with the sound booth.
From the beginning I could tell this was gonna be an awesome show. Chris was really hyper and pumped up. Now to say Chris Martin was hyper may sound like just a regular day, but he was REALLY hyper. Hyper beyond hyper. And the crowd was LOUD. At first we thought maybe it was where we were sitting. That we could just hear them more than the night before but no, they were crazy loud. The band sound was perfect. If you sit level with the sound booth, you hear what Dan Green hears, so you get the best sound mix.
At the beginning of Yellow Chris said we should sing it for someone we love. He then dedicated it to his kids Apple and Moses. We saw Kelly and her hubby, Kevin on the big screen jumping like loons. Kev is a wild man at shows and a great choice for an upgrade. They were on the big screen a lot. When the band walked out to the X Stage I noticed 2 things. First Chris went over and was saying something in Will's ear. OMG, look they are planning something. We had been there the night before and hoped they would give Amsterdam another try. Then when Chris sat down at the piano, he pulled out a piece of paper and put it on the piano. Song lyrics perhaps? Then they played it! Was it perfect, no. Was is 100% correct, no. Was it the most beautiful thing we heard that night....YES. I thought about calling Julie who had pressed Chris in DC to play it again, but could barely function enough to work my phone to tape it. Scrolling through contact lists was not happening. Sorry Julie.
Amsterdam wasn't the only set list change that night. Chris will sometimes throw in a few lines from Wonderful World before Fix You, but tonight he played a whole special Chicago edition of it. With shout outs to the city, the venue, the fans, the Bulls, and of course Michael Jordan. The man is just too adorable for words. After the show was over I was surprised that Dan was still in the sound booth. He usually leaves before ETIAW ends. I went and talked with him some. I asked if Chris showed up early just to rehearse Amsterdam and he said yes. He gave me his set list.
After we waited outside the gate to see if Chris would stop. He didn't but we had fun waiting anyway. By 1am they had broke down the stage, had it loaded in the trucks and were pulling out. That's pretty impressive. All in all it was an emotional day for me. Last night on the tour is always a sad and joyous occasion. This has been a great tour. To all my old Coldplay friends it was great seeing you all again. To all the new Coldplayers I met, hope to see you around again. To Coldplay, thanks for so many awesome memories. To several members of their crew, you guys are so awesome and nice. Thanks for everything you do. Until we meet again, peace out. [thanks Texasluvsjonny]
I was at the concert last night, it was great. The people in front of us were really mean and asked us to stop screaming but whatever. I was in section 105 row D so basically the other side of the stadium from the stage. The upgrader came up to us and asked us a few questions, and when he looked at our tickets he said Have a Good Time and walked away I was pissed. But when I was sitting in my seat before the show holding my "I <3 you Guy Berryman" poster a man came up to me and had a coldplay pass on him and asked to take a picture of me with my poster. After he took it, I asked if he was a roadie, and then he pointed at my poster and said 'That's my brother" and walked away! I freaked out but he left before I could get a picture with him But it was still cool. The concert was great. I loved hearing DLIBYH and Amsterdam live. It sucked not having front row compared to Lolla last year but oh well Great experience for my third Coldplay concert. [thanks graceberryman]
Fan review and C-stage video from headfortheburrows @ Tumblr: So this past Wednesday, August 8th, my best friend and I went to see Coldplay live at the United Center, in Chicago. This was, without question, the best night of my life thus far - and my friend (Katy) said the same. Both of us list Coldplay as our favorite band when asked, by anyone, and I’d go so far as to say I’m quite obsessed with them. I own their entire discography, a number of their albums in record format, and I’m just generally all fanboy / in love with them type feels. I listen to them constantly, whether it be the tracks that were never released to the general public that I have mp3’s of (Murder, Lukas, Ladder to The Sun, the list goes on) or the newer stuff, or my favorite album by them, Parachutes.
So, naturally, you can see how excited I - we - both were for this night. We got there at 5:30, and the concert didn’t start until seven. Well, actually, the opening act was on and off and on stage again within a two-hour time period, so Coldplay didn’t actually come out until 9:00 p.m. - and they played till 11:30 ish. As to the concert itself, I have no words. Or, rather, I do, but they’re hard to get down because even 24 hours later I’m still so fucking excited about it.
Of course everyone knows (or most of us?) about the wristbands - lovingly the “Xylobands,” by many of the fans - that each fan gets at the start of the concert, puts on, and then becomes a part of the experience. Of course we had heard about them. Fantasized about getting our bracelet (I love my red one!), and of course we had read and seen these amazing images online. But nothing, nothing could do it justice in person. After the band had taken their final bows (after TWO encores) and left the stage, the arena was plunged into total 100% darkness, and for one second nobody knew what was happening. And then suddenly every Xyloband in the place lit up, and the entire place went insane. Screaming as I’ve never heard before and a collective unity feeling that I cannot describe. I’ve never been a part of something like that before, with 20,000 other people all feeling the same emotions and all projecting the same message that Coldplay so boldly stands for (love, in my opinion) all at once.
Note: Coldplay loves their fans more than any other band - do you know any other group that gives back $640,000 per concert to their fanbase? But to the actual concert itself - the wristbands, most amazingly, were only the beginning. I mean, good lord, it’s Chris Martin, so of course there had to be confetti. After that (and that went on for a WHILE - we were drenched in the stuff) they brought out the huge balls (har har har). These were amazing - the crowd would bop them around continuously, and at one point (the first picture of the balls shown) they eventually somehow made their way all back up to the stage. A few songs after they were dropped on the crowd, there was only one left floating around - and obviously people are wondering where they went to. Well, Chris took his guitar to the last one (it had gotten up on the stage) and when the balls popped they rained down confetti - which means they were pre-filled with the stuff. Incredible.
Next came the music. They had an amazing set list (also in the pictures) - and swapped out Warning Sign in favor of playing Amsterdam - which they haven’t played live in ten years till that night (Chris sort of mentioned it ) - so that was really incredible. They also did The Scientist right into Yellow, which was so emotional and really fantastic. The final song that they played (this is the second encore they did) was Fix You, and I don’t think there was a dry eye in the place. It was, without doubt, overwhelming and amazing all at once.
But the first encore is what really made the night - well - extraordinary. I never dreamed something like this could happen to us - but it did. We bought our tickets off of stubhub, and there were better seats available than the ones we bought. There were worse ones, too, but we liked the location and the price was alright ($220 a piece - we got to the game late ), so we went with them. About two songs before they ended their main set and started the first encore, we noticed some weird things happening around us.
For example, the set guys had started bringing things (weird things) up to a platform located about five feet behind us. Like, for instance: a box (later would hold a keyboard) and a MICROPHONE. One song later (and one to go before the encore) security guards started lining our aisle. Keep in mind, my friend and I had the seats that were at the very END of our row and nearest this aisle, so we were literally right next to the caution tape they started putting up and down the aisle (taping it to the end seat of every row, of which we occupied).
Of course the friends we had already made in the row right above us started freaking out with us. As I was the tallest person among our group, I was designated to lean as far over the caution tape as I could and look to see if the guys were coming. By now they had finished up Paradise, and the guards would let us lean as far past the tape as we could as long as we didn’t physically break it by walking through it or under it. Fine by me, mister mean security guard (he was rudeeeee) - I’m tall and can lean and see the entry way to the aisle (the same one that we’d been using all night to keep accessing our seats) to see if the guys are coming, when no one else can (because of either their seat position or their height or both). So of course everyone’s yelling at me “ARE THEY COMING YET?” over and over and I’m basically like “shut up cus you’ll know if I see Chris Martin’s head.”
And then it happened. I can’t, I just can’t. I saw Chris Martin walking down the same walkway we had been walking on all night. ALL night long. You have to understand, the United Center has 20,000 people in it right now. They could have chosen ANYWHERE in the arena to perform this encore at, and they chose our seats. Literally, we were three feet away. That last picture you see there is taken without using the zoom on my camera. Will eventually came up and put his keyboard on that box you see there, and Guy and Buckland came up to fill the spaces inbetween Will and Chris. They played Speed of Sound, Us Against The World, and then they went back to the main stage to play Fix You. Luckily, they used the main aisle (where we were right next to - remember) to walk back to the stage, and in doing so allowed us to get high fives - actually I only got a high five from Guy, but I was still able to touch the rest of them on their arms, and my best friend was able to touch Chris Martin. Also, not to be weird, but fuck it because we’re fans and creeping is caring, we were close enough to smell Chris Martin (you see in the video there he paused to talk to the security guys, and that black hair in front of the camera is my friend) - and lord help me - mother may I - he smells, simply, like pure sex. Amazing. 
Unlike Tuesday night, I consciously decided not to take a lot of pictures and just enjoy the concert, and that I did. Wednesday was 10x better than Tuesday and that is solely due to the crowd and how the boys fed off of it. At times, the sound was deafening. Since the review above me covered everything, I just have to say OMFG to finally getting to hear Amsterdam in its entirety. I distinctly remember seeing Chris lean in to whisper something to Will, then Jonny, then Guy. Inside, I was freaking out because I knew he was up to something. Then it happened. I'll admit it took me a few moments to recognize what was happening then I lost it. AMSTERDAM. I sang every word as loud as I could if only to keep myself from crying (I actually did when he played the first minute of it on Tuesday). I know it's likely that I will never hear it again which is why I have forever engrained it on my heart. Warning Sign AND Amsterdam.
My top two favorite Coldplay songs and I got to hear them both live! AH! I'm smiling just thinking about it. I was gutted we didn't get to meet them either night but it was awesome hanging out with everyone. I stayed til almost 1:30 with Angie and Mike all to no avail. And the roadie, Andy, was awesome even if he did flat out lie to us about the supposed runner. I don't think he counted on us knowing so much about the Coldplay world . This was only reinforced when Guy tweeted this: Coldplay @coldplay We are in Chicago - only 2 shows left to play in the USA for the Mylo tour. It's been a great journey. GB. Can't fool us, Andy! I can't wait to see you all again on the next tour, whenever that may be! [thanks the.hardest.part]
Night two of the Chicago shows had some energy left over from the night before, in other words, it was obvious that the crowd and the band had much more energy than the night before. After night one, my expectations were raised and they were definitely met from the energy level, the enthusiasm, the mood, everything was just heightened. Instead of going alone like the night before, I took some of my Coldplayer friends with me; it’s a whole different experience when you’re around people you know are diehard fans like you. One thing I kinda regret is that I forgot to bring my digital camera to the show, I ended up buying a disposable one so not all was lost; a good thing that forgetting the camera brought on me was that I could enjoy the concert without looking through the lens most of the time, I connected to the band, the music, and the crowd in a more intimate level (a difference from the night before) and thoroughly enjoyed it more.
The usual set started with no disappointments or mistakes, and then something unexpected happened. Right before where Warning Sign would be, Chris said something to the rest of the band that would be the start of the highlight of the night, at least to an ultimate Coldplayer… Chris played the piano intro to Amsterdam, just like the night before, but he actually continued! This was such a treat; I had to pull out my phone to record it (even though I was trying to enjoy the concert as natural as possible). I teared up as the song went on, since this was such a rarity played live, and sang with it as passionately as I could. After Amsterdam though, Warning Sign had been nixed from the set (which didn’t bother me since I had the privilege to listen to that on night one). The set continued with Don’t Let It Break Your Heart and it was clear that even Coldplayers that have seen them many times, had their energy level pumped after the gem of a performance we had personally witnessed. When the C-Stage portion came up, I already expected to be close to them (after close observation from last night) and loved every minute of their presence only feet away from me.
Tonight, Chris’s pre-C-stage story talked about the recent victory of the USA Women’s Beach Volleyball Olympic Team, in which he went on to imagining a combination of the USA & UK teams taking over the world… typical Chris, he wouldn’t be him without these alluring remarks. The show ended with a bang, nothing less than what was expected, and I was once again left in tears. I went down to the floor to collect fallen confetti (a free souvenir, and authentic too) and exited the arena in a daze. Like the night before, I went to the gate where the black SUVs were parked, and met most of the same Coldplayers that I had met the other night. They had told me that two of the SUVs had sped off right after the concert, but we still waited diligently to see if at least one of the boys would stop and meet us. The same time passed, with more interesting conversations, but still nothing… one of the roadies told us that they had pulled a runner and hopped onto a plane, but that was a flat lie (sensed by the veterans who’ve waited for them for many occasions before).
Shortly after midnight, I quit my post and went home with a melting pot of emotions, the impact that the two nights I had spent seeing the best band on Earth had melted my heart, mind, soul, and spirit which to this moment, haven’t completely recovered from yet. The day after, still in a daze, Guy had tweeted from the Coldplay Twitter account that they were still in Chicago, which shined a light of truth into what we weren’t sure of. Still wishing I could’ve met them personally, but no regrets coming from me. I love them to death, and that is for sure. [thanks phantoneku]
For more media reviews of the Chicago shows visit 7 August 2012 - United Center, Chicago, IL, USA
Timeout Chicago: Consider it Lollapalooza Day Four. As the United Center filled with a democratic, x chromosome–heavy crowd on Tuesday evening, I noticed many Lollapalooza armbands still dangling from the wrists of fans. But it was bracelets of a different sort that rocketed this joyous, candy-colored concert into the annals of the arena greats.
Coldplay distributed thick neon nylon bracelets of a mysterious purpose to each of the 19,000 (that's the number Chris Martin threw out there) or so ticketholders as we entered. I got a yellow one; my girlfriend, pink. The "xylobands," as they were branded and trademarked, came in blue, green, white and red varieties as well. By now, it won't spoil anything to say these xylobands are loaded with LEDs, radio-controlled and synchronized, and they erupt with light when the British quartet bursts onstage with "Hurts Like Heaven." The stadium becomes a glittering rainbow starfield, and it is undeniably spectacular. The entire show is a similar panoply of confetti (in Lucky Charms–esque shapes: teardrops, bids, butterflies, clovers, hearts and bells) and lasers and ultraviolet and florescent paint and big bouncing, batted balls.
Oh, right, there's music, too, equally bright and ebullient. I mentioned the crowd was democratic. If you made a Venn diagram with circles representing the audiences of Ravinia Festival, Radiohead, Jay-Z and the How to Train Your Dragon Live Spectacular, than Coldplay's crowd would be the diamond overlap in the center. I saw dudes in Odd Future Wolf Gang and Thrice T-shirts. I saw pregnant women, retirees and preteens. It's easy to understand why Coldplay's music appeals to all of us on some level. Two wanna-be pop stars opened the show, yet the PA system played ambient krautrock and Jay-Z before the headliners jumped out of the tunnels. Chris Martin and crew want to be all of this and more. Live, the foursome pull it off far more brilliantly than on record. Will Champion beefs up the tunes with borderline-angry drumming. Jonny Buckland's guitar gets to shriek a little more. And Martin fills the rest of the space with his booming tenor.
The set drew largely from Mylo Xyloto—nine of its eleven full songs—and swung for the fences with crowd-stoking smashes like "Clocks," "In My Place," "The Scientist" and "God Put a Smile Upon Your Face." (A Rush of Blood to the Head is rather great in hindsight, isn't it?) Martin is a born showman and infectiously optimistic. Three girls in the fifth row hold up three sheets of loose leaf paper with AMS-TER-DAM scrawled in highlighters. Martin spots the message and confesses he won't sleep well unless he at least meets their demand and attempts to play the closing ballad of Rush. He apologizes for not remembering the tune at all and tells the other three with a laugh, "Money for nothing. You don't have to do fuck all on this one." He gives it a go on his fake, graffiti-splattered piano that rises from the stage with hydraulics. He can hardly get through the first verse. I see him blush. The girls lose their shit regardless.
Of course, the immediate comparison to make is to U2. Twenty years ago, I saw the Irish giants at a similar point in their career, on the Zoo Station and Zoo TV tours. While the rock & roll there was more progressive and aggressive, and the stage show more jaw-dropping, and the openers far more stimulating (Kate Bush–meets–Katy Perry warbler Marina & The Diamonds is no Pixies and Public Enemy), Coldplay surprisingly edges out their mentors by connecting with its audience. There's the post-Internet tech stuff, sure, but the group also goes out of its way to touch the people. While U2 continues to shrink and distance itself under gigantic prop monstrosities, Coldplay leaves the dazzling for clever, small-scale tricks. The Mylo Xyloto performance is quasi-in-the-round. Martin scampers all over the place. There are mini-sets in the stands. Those in section 103, have your cameras read in the encore. Everyone else, prepare to become human fireworks.
