Coldplay about the concert

We get to Bern Stade De Suisse and it's been wet. Very wet. All day. We arrive though and it's starting to look up. I'm all set for writing about how the clouds parted and the sun came out for the show, but mother nature has other ideas. By the C-stage, it's quite simply chucking it down. As ever, the crowd don't disappoint and they give it their all regardless.

They also do this amazing thing here where instead of clapping and stamping their feet for an encore, they waggle their fingertips. Most odd the first time you see it, but very impressive. Chris comes back on and starts The Scientist, but by now, mother nature has had enough of being ignored. In one of the quietest sections of the show, comes thunder and lightning that appears to be mocking our meagre attempts at sub bass and flashing lights.

Chris ad-libs into the "thunderbolt and lightning, very very frightening" bit from Bohemian Rhapsody and the place erupts. It's a real shame that this stadium run is so short, as it seems to suit them very well. Still - at least we know what they're capable of now...
