Coldplay Thanks California!

I saw Coldplay last summer at Irvine Meadows and when they were ending the show the band thanked Los Angeles. I was pretty upset that they would say that. I found out that Irvine Meadows had been renamed Verizon Wireless Amphitheatre of Los Angeles. So I wrote to Coldplay via their Web site. I told them that it was an insult, just as thanking people in Manchester by saying “Thank you London” would be offensive. At their show last night, they said “Thank you California“. I guess bands actually read their fan’s feedback. GOOD JOB COLDPLAY!

What a great show. So many things to talk about. Fiona Apple opened. Great show. I had sixth row on the floor but the seating configuration was altered and I had FRONT ROW on the floor. Between Fiona Apple and Coldplay I ran into a former schoolmate from Orange High. He didn’t recognize me! I am gaining too much weight. I told him I was the Depeche Mode guy and he remembered me. He says I look quite different. Anyway, it was interesting talking to him. He used to be the drummer in the Offspring. His name is Ron Welty and he has a new band in the works www.steadyground.com. It was a good break and then the headliner came on. Coldplay put on a great show. They announced and pointed out Joaquin Phoenix was in attendance.
