Pictures from the Herning show

Aug 17, 2009

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
