Snaps from the first gig of the European tour
Good afternoon. We went along to Herning in Denmark yesterday to check out Coldplay's first show of the European tour. The crowd was amazing, the show was fantastic, the weather was decidedly patchy and we took some pictures:


Blue skies and heavy machinery, as the finishing touches are put to the new stage


That thing hanging down at the back is known as an LED wall - aka an absolutely massive telly


A mic's eye view


The dressing rooms are in FC Midtjylland's new football stadium next to the venue


Pretty soon, a ball is procured and a sun-soaked kickabout ensues


The band's trusty travelling wardrobes


You don't have to be mad to work here etc...


A popcorn machine action shot


Alas, the blue sky is no more


White Lies' rocking set warms the crowd up nicely


Guy plays some mandolin in the dressing room as the minutes tick down to stage time


The pre-show huddle, complete with Coldplay's elusive fifth member, Mr Phil Harvey


It's a definite thumbs up from Jonny


Atomic strobes?!


Beware Mr Champion with a leaf blower


The crowd's enthusiasm isn't dampened by the drizzle


Let the show commence!


Jonny throws himself into Violet Hill


Two guitars are better than one...


...and so are two heads


After a cracking show, the band say goodnight
