Q. When I seen Coldplay in Manchester this year, they came on in broad daylight, so why in Paris is it dark when they come on? Did they do this to make the lighting better? I LOVE COLDPLAY LIVE 2012!


The Oracle replies:

It seems strange because France is an hour ahead of the UK so when the band came on there at 9pm, it was 8pm here. Was it dark in the UK at 8pm on 2nd September? I don't know because er, I was in Paris watching the show. In the dark!
The Manchester gig was in June (Summer) and the Paris gig was in September (Autumn) and as the year goes on the nights get darker.
